Prysm: Powered by Cloud, with Security in Mind

When I talk to customers, inevitably the words “cloud” and “security” are tightly linked. In a modern digital world where we see high-profile data leaks and hacks on a regular basis, IT organizations are taking more precautions to ensure sensitive corporate IP is kept secure.

From Prysm India: Fostering a Culture of Collaboration and Innovation

In “The Culture Map,” Erin Meyer beautifully describes how cultural differences and assumptions can create misunderstandings amongst colleagues in international business environments. As a case in point, she talked about how Westerners often assume Asians — who tend to participate and opine less than Americans do in meetings have less to say. In contrast, Asians often feel that Americans are bad listeners, because they tend to talk over one another in their haste to share their perspectives. While neither of these assumptions is 100% accurate, they can lead to discord.

Four Ways to Get More Out of Your Prysm-Powered Meetings

I was talking to one of our sales reps the other day, and he told me something very interesting: he frequently speaks with Prysm users who don’t know about some of our best features! (Reminds me of a guy I used to date, but that’s a story for another time.)

Because I’m passionate about our product, I thought I’d take a couple minutes to highlight some of the cool features that you might not know about or that you might not be using to their fullest extent.

Meeting Technology 2017: The Struggle is (Still) Real

I had a chat the other day with an employee of a large, well-known tech company. She told me a story that really surprised me. She said that the meeting technology used at her company was so terrible that it was not only impacting productivity; it was actually making people hate their jobs.

Lessons Learned from Sprint’s New Executive-Briefing Center

“We picked Prysm, in part, because it reflected our brand in being very innovative.” —John Heiman, Director of Experiential Marketing, Sprint

Recently, Prysm published a case study about Sprint’s newly renovated executive-briefing center (EBC) at its headquarters in Overland, Kansas, featuring Prysm Visual Workplace. The telecom giant’s choice of technology was symbolic of a movement in today’s enterprise — the transformation of the traditional “dog-and-pony show” into a consultative sale requiring authentic collaboration.

Meetings 3.0:  Five Ways to Turn Initial Presentations Into Real Sales and Customer Relationships

It's the hallmark of rookie sales reps — the rote PowerPoint presentation, delivered to every new customer and prospect with little to no variation in content and no time for discovery or feedback. The one-size-fits all presentation is unlikely to come across as personalized or inspired, and rarely leads to a sale. When you're trying to impress a prospect with your understanding of their business and commitment to their success, this is simply a poor strategy.

Video: Virtual Team Room

As a corporate blogger, I have had the privilege of spending time with many sales reps and execs, mining ideas and helping them put their own blogs together. It's great to hear about their thoughts, their vision and their customer visits.

From those who are constantly on the road, I've also sometimes heard something less than wonderful — namely, that they are exhausted. They often spend way too much time away from their families, cooped up on airplanes and sleeping in impersonal hotels.

Video: More Meeting Space, No Rent Increase

Ever worked at a company that had an ample number of conference rooms — but when you'd go to reserve one, they were never available? You're definitely not alone. Until now, there was no way to safeguard scrum notes or protect confidential board-meeting information, except to lock the door.

Video: A Cutting-Edge Decision-Support Platform

The way information is presented has an enormous influence over our ability to understand it and derive actionable insights. One of the biggest flaws with many existing tools — such as PowerPoint — is that they can only show information sequentially, which is not the optimal way to get a comprehensive overview and drive good decisions.

The Rise of the Customer Experience Center

Contributed by Dana Corey

"You've got to start with the customer experience and work back to the technology — not the other way around." –Steve Jobs

Leading enterprises have long understood that one of the most powerful ways to attract and engage prospects (especially executive decision makers) is to provide them with a visually impressive, immersive demonstration of their products or services in an executive briefing center (EBC). These
centers can be used to give your customers a first-hand experience of both current and future offerings in an environment that allows your company to really "wow" your customers.
