ONELAN has been awarded an international Digital Signage Award by one of the AV industry's leading organisations, known as the DOOHDAHs.

The award was given in recognition of ONELAN's deployment at the Chemist Warehouse Retail Group, one of Australia's leading retail pharmacies, where digital signage has continued to enable Chemist Warehouse to distribute video and advertising content into stores, plus provide proof of play to brands, with content managed centrally by their internal marketing team.

Furthermore, additional promotional revenue streams were opened, with a reduced reliance on paper (at point of sale) and product information accessed more easily by customers.

The Retail Group consists of Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist, My Beauty Spot, ePharmacy and the Discount Vitamin Warehouse, operating more than 400 retail stores across Australia. They are Australia's sixth largest retailer by turnover, with sales of more than $4 billion, and in excess of 10,000 staff.

The Digital Signage Awards are impartial, independent and objective, and aim to seek out examples of the world's most excellent digital screen media projects, creativity, content and technology. The judging panel is made up from expert judges, chosen for their experience in the industry and its many skills and disciplines. For more information, visit www.doohdahs.com

We're pleased to announce we have integrated support for BrightSign Series 3 and 2 players into our CMS 3.0, as part of our ongoing commitment to provide scalable enterprise-level solutions to customers across multiple player platforms.

With the addition of the BrightSign's player lineup, customers will have even more flexibility to select the right player and display for their budget and needs. The ONELAN CMS supports both the latest and legacy player versions so companies with existing BrightSign networks can also take advantage of ONELAN's Enterprise CMS. ONELAN's CMS 3.0 also allows content to be published to a mixed network of integrated small screens, LGWebOS and Samsung SSSP Tizen System on Chip (SOC) displays and the company's own range of NTB Linux signage players.

The new integration gives BrightSign players access to the enterprise features of the ONELAN CMS, including management and control from a central location.

With several different hosting solutions, ONELAN's CMS offers the customer flexibility with either on-premise or cloud hosting. The CMS is scalable to 50,000+ players and can be added to over time to ensure the demands of a growing network can be met.

Perfect for large retail networks, the ONELAN CMS partnered with BrightSign players uses a 'Store and Forward' content delivery mechanism. This delivery method ensures that all BrightSign players will play content even if internet connection is lost. Within a retail network requiring local content differentiation, meta data tagging can be used to hyper localise based on any number of different tags. This allows local content to be delivered from a central location, thus saving on admin and IT maintenance costs required to control large networks with local content differences.

Continued uptime is critical for maintaining a network within a public facing retailer or QSR. The ONELAN CMS includes the ability to fully maintain, monitor and remotely configure all players. This player management facility ensures central control over content distribution and player health, and results in maximum network uptime. With the use of sophisticated role-based permissions within the CMS, content can be managed and approved by the appropriate users and ensures enterprise level workflow management.

Jeremy Copp, ONELAN's CEO commented: "We're delighted to be expanding our reach into the Retail and QSR markets by bringing ONELAN's Enterprise CMS and BrightSign players to market together ultimately giving more choice and flexibility to our customers."

Jeff Hastings, BrightSign's CEO, added, "Our partnership with ONELAN is a further example of BrightSign's collaboration with leading CMS providers. ONELAN and BrightSign are committed to supporting customers with diverse applications and needs, and share a commitment to delivering content with flawless reliability. We are delighted to work with ONELAN to deliver on that commitment."

ONELAN will be showcasing its CMS running on BrightSign Series 3 players at Integrated Systems Europe 2017, from February 7th to 10th at the RAI, Amsterdam on stand 8-F275.

We're pleased to announce our partnership with NFS Technology Group, an international technology company, delivering a powerful combination of enterprise room booking, resource booking, interactive room signage and digital signage.

As part of the initial roll-out, ONELAN's Reserva Room Signage range integrates with NFS' Rendezvous Workspace room booking solution. Reserva room signs display real time information for meetings scheduled in Workspace, whilst also providing an interface to book a meeting directly from the display.

Where tools such as Microsoft Exchange are insufficient, Workspace enables organisations to efficiently manage meeting rooms, desks, car parking, visitor management and vended services such as catering, AV, IT and video conferencing.

This unrivalled combination also delivers another significant benefit as the Reserva Room Signage can be used in combination with the ONELAN CMS to become an integrated part of the digital signage network. This allows users to display corporate communications on their room signage and show information relating to meeting schedules within large format digital signage.

Jeremy Copp, ONELAN's CEO commented 'We're excited to be working with the team at NFS Technology with the partnership between Reserva and Workspace bringing a best-in-class solution to corporates. He continued, 'With the growing demand for smarter working, room booking and room signage solutions are increasingly important to organisations looking to improve their workspace utilisation and deliver return on investment.'

NFS Technology Group is a leading international provider of scheduling software and event management software solutions to help a wide range of businesses drive up the efficiency of their workspace utilisation, improving productivity and smoothing operations.

Rendezvous scheduling software - which integrates seamlessly with Outlook - is used by leading law firms and major corporations in more than 25 countries for booking meeting rooms and conferences, along with video conferencing management.

Luis De Souza, NFS CEO added, "This strategic partnership between our two organisations combines the flexibility of Workspace with the simplicity of Reserva providing a unique offering to our customers. We look forward to further market-shaping technological developments as we continue working together."

Reserva Room Signage and NFS will be on the ONELAN stand at Integrated Systems Europe 2017, from February 7th to 10th at the RAI, Amsterdam on stand 8-F275.

Our leading-edge range of digital signage and Reserva Room Signage solutions will be on show at Integrated Systems Europe 2017, from February 7th to 10th at the RAI, Amsterdam on stand 8-F275, Hall 8.

The latest developments being showcased demonstrate our strategic commitment to providing scalable enterprise-level solutions to customers, with innovative tools for managing a mixed network of devices. CMS support is available for multiple player platforms, including Linux, Android, and new for ISE, WebOS3.0 and Samsung Tizen as well as new Reserva Room Signage features.

Highlights will include exhibiting ONELAN SOC (System On Chip) players which enable software to be installed directly onto either a Samsung Tizen or LG webOS screen. This delivers reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) via simpler installation and reduced cabling, while also offering flexible licensing and hosting options.

The latest Reserva Room Signage features being showcased include the option to choose between one or more of 13 different languages. The Reserva solution - recently nominated for a prestigious InAVation Award - also allows the customer to upload their logos, offering an additional internal channel for brand reinforcement. There is also an enhanced capability for the Room signs to operate as part of a corporate/campus communications network playing images, videos and HTML in conjunction with the room booking.

Reserva is one of the only room booking platforms to integrate both with the market's most popular calendar and timetabling platforms e.g. Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Google and specialist systems such as Scientia Syllabus Plus, and NFS Hospitality.

ONELAN's Reserva Room Signage has also been nominated for a 2017 InAVation award. Winners will be announced in Tuesday 7th February with voting now open via http://www.inavationawardsonthenet.net/technologyvoting.aspx

Reserva Room Signage now has versions available in 13 different languages including Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Russian and other key European languages.

Additional language functionality is not only useful for international companies, but also for large corporations or universities who may have a large multilingual contingent, regardless of where they are based. This flexibility means they can communicate important room allocation information in more than one language.

Reserva also extends its support for market leading calendar systems with the addition of Google Calendar and G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Work) connectors. This gives Reserva unrivalled integration with the leading systems used in Corporates and Universities.

Further functionality enhancements enable organisations to control the theme and branding of the signage solution, offering an additional internal channel for brand reinforcement.

Commenting on the latest upgrades, Simon Carp, Senior Product Manager said; "These enhancements further cement Reserva's position as one of the leading room booking signage solutions. The features are immediately accessible to all existing and new customers, and can be implemented within an organisation, wherever they are based."

Since launching in 2015, Reserva has been installed globally within the education, corporate and hospitality industries, helping to improve booking efficiencies for end users and room occupancy management for facilities managers.

Unlike other similar solutions which have no other functionality, Reserva room signs can be used in combination with ONELAN's Content Management System (CMS) to show other messaging on screen. The Reserva portfolio also includes content to bring information about meetings to large format digital signage.

Reserva has recently been nominated for a prestigious 2017 InAVation award with winners announced on Tuesday 7th February at ISE Amsterdam. Click here to vote!
