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 large retail rollouts. 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 for factoring data or meeting room bookings. Also, ONELAN’s 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.
Says David Dalzell, ONELAN’s Managing Director … “We are of course delighted to receive this award. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a very welcome recognition of the effort put in by our various teams to fulfil the whole product lifecycle for a leading edge set of products. We are proud to be able to create new products and grow profitably into a new world-wide market.”
ONELAN develops network appliances for standalone and end-to-end Digital Signage network solutions. The Net-Top-Box is a mul¬ti-media, multi-zoned Linux based solution capable of Touch Interactivity. With a browser based user inter¬face, the system is fully multi-lingual and capable of dis¬playing both stored media and live media e.g. RSS feeds web pages and broadcast TV or locally streamed video. Further mem¬bers of the product family cater for Enterprise network management and integration with external data sources.
ONELAN’s NTBs are now installed in a wide variety of organisations such as retail, schools, hospitals, and government buildings, as well as some well-known corporates such as Vodafone, Virgin Holidays and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
