Everyone always asks, why the name Prism?

A Prism is a special type of glass known as an isotope. When light shines through it, it produces a magnificent band of colors. Scientists use the light produced by a prism to reveal things about an object that can’t be seen with the naked eye. We hope that PRISM will reveal things about your contract compliance that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
