Purchasing large format digital display technology is a big decision. With the interpretation of “included costs” varying from person to person, finding a constant measurement for investment is difficult. To make it easier for our clients, Prysm offers two cost models: Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Environmental Cost of Ownership (ECO) to help make buyers make reasonable decisions.
TCO looks at everything—from installation to operation to lifespan—to build a cost model. ECO is a subset of TCO that specifically addresses energy costs. With energy consumption becoming such an important factor in technology selection decisions, we feel that ECO is a much cleaner way to compare technology.
TCO considers everything including installation, operating costs and the lifespan of the unit to determine the economical impact of the solution.
Operating costs can include HVAC, maintenance, content creation, and lifespan, and is significantly different for many display solutions.
Contact our sales team and we'll work with you to understand the TCO of Prysm solutions compared to the other products you're evaluating.
The cleanest way to compare technologies is to compare the energy consumption of the product over its useful life. Because all products use energy in similar ways, this comparison lets us focus on direct comparisons without the subjectivity of less-structured standards.
