Prism Release Preview 1st May 2018

We’re pleased to announce that the next release of Prism is now available for preview.

This release includes:

  • Payment gateway support directly from within Prism
  • Increased visibility in search engines


Payment gateway support directly from within Prism

We’ve reviewed how Keystone ePayment works for your end users and have implemented the Keystone connections for ePayment Service Providers directly in Prism. This release supports:

  • WorldPay
  • WPM
  • Capita Payments (SecPay and Pay360)
  • Civica ICON
  • SagePay.

Under Charges in the user’s account the button currently labelled as Pay Now will show the amount to pay. It takes the user directly to the payment provider’s payment page.

This development improves the end user experience by removing multiple clicks and confirmations which were duplicated. It also ensures that any theme changes are applied immediately, rather than incurring a delay while your Keystone ePayment solution is updated.

This applies if you have the Prism Pro ePayment feature. To implement this change we need to switch over your tenancy to the new feature. Please open a Support case to request your upgrade.


Increased visibility in search engines

Prism now provides richer information to search engines, which should increase the visibility of your library’s resources in the web. We’ve upgraded the data that is included in Prism pages, and provided a sitemap of recent additions to your tenancy.

Making the most of your preview

Please check the preview version as early as possible to familiarise with the new functionality and to ensure that your tenancy still behaves as expected in terms of both functionality, including extensions, and styling.

To preview this release, please precede your tenancy URL with ‘demo.’, like this:{your tenancy name}. If you have your own host name, you’ll need to use instead.


Release to the live service

The release of Prism to the live service will be on Tuesday 8th May 2018.
