ONELAN will be attending Integrated Systems Europe 2018 showcasing a number of new releases, notably card check-in for Reserva Room Signage and enhanced features for ONELAN's SOC solution.
The new Reserva features mean enterprise users will be able to interact directly with the room signs using their NFC/RFID identity cards. Initially via the ONELAN NFS Rendezvous Workspace connector with check-in support for Exchange and Office 365 support to follow, the benefits for an enterprise include enforcing restrictions on who may check-in to or change room bookings, thereby maximizing the use of valuable room resources.
Using Active Directory authentication, only a validated card holder may book a meeting; they will then automatically be set as the host of the meeting. Furthermore, only attendees may check-in, shorten, extend or end a meeting.
ONELAN also continues its drive into the QSR space delivering a unique failover solution for Samsung Tizen and LG WebOS SOC screens which ensures business critical information such as menu boards, pricing and calorific values are always available for customers, without the need to invest in a redundant network of multiple back-up players, dual output players, or screens.
Furthermore, the addition of audio soundtrack and streaming provides a more engaging experience for a customer and along with additional storage capacity, further enriches the functionality of ONELAN's System-on-Chip (SOC) and Net-Top-Box (NTB) solutions, helping to cement ONELAN's position as one of the industry's leading innovators in the retail and QSR environments.
ONELAN's latest developments demonstrate its 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, WebOS3.0 and Samsung Tizen, and Reserva Room Signage.
ONELAN will be at ISE on booth 8-C282 and the LG booth #12-K90.

ONELAN continues its drive into the QSR space delivering a failover solution which ensures business critical information such as menu boards, pricing and calorific values are always available for customers, without the need to invest in a redundant network of multiple back-up players, dual output players, or screens.
This enhancement in ONELAN's enterprise Content Management System (CMS) further enriches the functionality of ONELAN's System-on-Chip (SOC) and Net-Top-Box (NTB) solutions, helping to cement ONELAN's position as one of the industry's leading innovators in the QSR environment.
The solution works via player level tagging. In the event of a player failure or a display losing power, content playing will automatically move to one of the other screens.

At Infocomm 2017, ONELAN will also be showing its latest menu board management web app. This allows restaurant managers to use their local PC/mobile device to manage and update their local menu board.
This new release is part of ONELAN's commitment to making the CMS support a wide range of player types, and to add enterprise features which make it ideal for multiple applications.
