Prysm PSIM Profile

By Dan Gelinas, Published Mar 05, 2019, 10:42am EST

A decade ago, PSIM promised significant potential but has always suffered from significant problems. Now, a number of PSIMs have either gone out of business or stopped marketing.

One PSIM provider, France's Prysm never received much attention during the heyday of PSIM but is still around, quietly operating. Based on an integrator member's request to cover more European companies, we reached out to Prysm to better understand their case.

In this note, based on our interview with the company, we look at the following areas:

  • Company background
  • Revenue & growth
  • Pricing
  • Market strategy
  • AppVision overview
  • ~200 integrations
  • Dealer input
  • Deployment & training
  • Competitive comparison
  • Outlook
