Lenel's New VMS: PRISM

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 30, 2012

A few years ago, Lenel OEM'ed OnSSI (who OEM's Milestone, etc). Now, Lenel is changing the way it does VMS by introducing a new product named PRISM. Unlike previous offerings, PRISM has been developed internally by Lenel. At the recent ASIS show, Lenel promoted the new platform prominently in advance of its upcoming release. However, despite the publicity, does PRISM improve over Lenel's previous offerings? In this note, we examine PRISM and contrast it to other.
