Having won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2010 in the Innovation category, digital signage firm ONELAN received a visit from the Queen’s representative The Lord-Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson, accompanied by two of his cadets, Tim Nye and Jonathon Holroyd.
Following a tour of the premises and a short presentation from David Dalzell, ONELAN’s Founder and Managing Director, the Lord-Lieutenant enjoyed a buffet lunch provided by local company Absolute Delights with ONELAN staff, the Mayor of Henley Councillor Mrs Jennifer Wood and the Vice Chairman of South Oxfordshire District Council Councillor Felix Bloomfield.
The award takes pride of place in the company’s already considerable array of awards.
In 2009, despite a challenging economic climate, the company saw sales growth of over 19%, representing a 27% increase in unit sales and continued profitable growth for the fifth consecutive year. Exports were largely responsible, with sales turnover up from 18% to 30% as ONELAN continues to extend its global reach.
Having established itself as a leading provider of Digital Signage to the Education sector, the company has continued to expand its product portfolio to address markets such as Retail and Health that require Enterprise Class solutions.
Innovative enterprise products that have been developed include the Digital Signage Manager, designed to remotely monitor and manage networks of Net-Top-Boxes e.g. in a large retail shopping mall. Another product is the ONELAN Data Collection Engine (DCE) – a solution for capturing, collating and re-purposing data held in customer IT systems for display on a ONELAN Digital Signage system in graphical form for example in a university or library. Also, the ONELAN IPTV Omni-Server is a single box streaming solution for networked delivery and storage of video content via Ethernet networks e.g. in shopping malls, large corporates or universities.
