This has revolutionized the traditional classroom experience by giving rise to digitized curriculum with technologies like cloud computing being infused into education.

Challenged with this rising expectation, Prysm—San Jose, CA based firm is focused to bring this perspective transformation in the educational sector with their visual workplace technology solutions.

“Our visual workplace technology consisting of the software solution— Prysm Application Suite enables teams to collaborate on any device to pull in web-based content from various research sources,” asserts Paige O'Neill, CMO at Prysm.

With Prysm’s Visual Workplace solution, the students were able to collaborate on projects easily and realize data visualization in ways that were never possible before.

Talking about Prysm’s future O'Neill shares, “Working with a number of educational institutions as our customers, we are constantly striving to bring more engagement and excitement into the classroom.
