Digital workplace platform provider Prysm announced two new native apps for its digital workplace platform: one for Microsoft Windows 10-based devices using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and the other for iPhones. The new apps can be used with Prysm's existing room and web-access solutions to provide a single user experience tailored to how connected teams and individuals visualize and work with their preferred devices, applications and content, said company.
Using Prysm increases user engagement by allowing quick, easy access for all participants, regardless of location. By allowing all participants to interact simultaneously with content, it creates the desired collaborative experience in which every meeting participant is fully engaged from beginning to end. Users of Prysm's meeting room and web-access solutions can continue to expect the same experience they currently enjoy today, or switch between web and app access as needed for maximum productivity and ease of use.
At general availability, the desktop app will support Microsoft Windows 10-powered devices, including laptops, Surface devices and the Surface Hub via UWP, with plans to expand to other platforms in 2018. The Prysm desktop and Prysm for iPhone apps are expected to be available by the end of Q4 2017.
“At Prysm we are very aware that collaboration is a straight line to agility, productivity and – ultimately – business outcomes,” said Paige O'Neill, CMO, Prysm. “We are constantly improving the way users access Prysm solutions, so there are no barriers to collaboration. Because of this, we developed applications for Microsoft Windows 10-based devices and the iPhone that enable users to engage with the Prysm digital workplace platform in the way that works best for them, which will ultimately make individuals and teams more successful and efficient.”
Upcoming plans for the new desktop app includes expanding onto other platforms and unifying major collaboration tools from Cisco, IBM and Polycom, among others, within Prysm's digital workplace platform.
