SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 26, 2016
Prism (http://prism.com), a privacy-protected technology platform that taps cameras to collect, analyze and manage video data, has been named a 2016 award finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, and creativity from the most outstanding companies across the globe.
Retailers around the world rely on Prism for remote visual access to their brick-and-mortar stores and insights that empower them to optimize performance. Prism’s analytics use existing store cameras to conduct customer counting, measure occupancy and dwell, generate heatmap, pathmap and traffic visualizations, alongside a comprehensive set of reporting and data integration tools. Retailers can access Prism from any laptop, smartphone or tablet through a suite of web and native mobile applications.
"The Edison Awards acknowledge companies that challenge conventional wisdom," said Bob Cutting, co-founder and COO at Prism. "By redefining video, Prism is changing how businesses are managed and how success is measured. Cameras that once existed solely to monitor and record are now smart devices that provide deep analysis into performance and customer engagement."
“It’s exciting to see companies like Prism continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ executive director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers.”
Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the Finalists’ success in meeting the award’s stringent criteria of quality. Award winners will be announced April 21, 2016 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala, held in the historic Ballroom of the Capitale in New York City.
