England's ONELAN Digital Signage announced today that the company has won a Queen's Award for Enterprise 2010 in the Innovation category.
"We are of course delighted to receive this award," said David Dalzell, ONELAN's managing director. "The Queen's Award for Enterprise is a very welcome recognition of the effort put in by our various teams to fulfill 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."
In 2009, despite a challenging economic climate, the company saw sales growth of more than 19 percent, representing a 27 percent increase in unit sales and continued profitable growth for the fifth consecutive year. Exports were largely responsible, with sales turnover up from 18 percent to 30 percent as ONELAN continues to extend its global reach, the company says. Having established itself as a leading provider of digital signage to the education sector, the company says it has continued to expand its product portfolio to address markets, such as retail and healthcare, 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; 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; and ONELAN's IPTV Omni-Server is a single box streaming solution for networked delivery and storage of video content via Ethernet networks.
