New Reserva features provide increase in productivity and meeting room booking efficiency at InfoComm in Las Vegas.
ONELAN is showcasing its latest digital signage and Reserva room booking technologies for the corporate, education and hospitality sectors at the forthcoming InfoComm exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention Center, 6th to 8th June 2018.
ONELAN is exhibiting its solutions on booth #C1874, on the LG booth #C2546, and the Stampede booth #C1646. ONELAN's Reserva partner, NFS Technology Solutions will also be showcasing their solutions on the ONELAN booth.
New to InfoComm this year, ONELAN will be demonstrating a major update to the Reserva Room signage solution which includes 'Find Free Room' functionality allowing users to find and book free rooms from any Reserva Room Sign.
Another new feature allows staff/students to report issues with meeting room resources such as projector or conferencing facilities to an IT team. This not only alerts service teams that a fault requires investigation but also uniquely notifies organisers of meetings in the affected room so where necessary, alternative arrangements can be made.
These enhancements underline ONELAN's commitment to developing a truly world class workspace optimization and room signage solution. These new features will have a direct impact on employees and students, greatly improving the efficiency of booking and using meeting rooms.
Alongside enhancements to the Reserva Room Signage, ONELAN is also releasing new digital signage updates including shared playlists, significantly improving the efficiency of playlist management. A range of enhancements will be introduced to make management of System-on-Chip (SoC) devices easier, such as bulk software update and selective channel download to optimize storage utilization.
ONELAN's latest digital signage developments demonstrate its ongoing strategic commitment to providing scalable enterprise-level solutions within retail, QSR and hospitality environments.

ONELAN, a global leader in digital visual communications, today announced their acquisition by Uniguest, a Nashville-based cybersecurity technology specialist in the secure operating system space. Uniguest delivers market-leading solutions which assist customers in driving guest, shopper, and resident engagement in the hospitality, office retail, and community living industries respectively.
The acquisition will strengthen ONELAN's presence in the US, with customers and partners benefiting from Uniguest's team of 180 US-based staff and a further 75-person 24/7 call center.
With clear synergies between the two customer-centric organizations, the acquisition presents Uniguest the opportunity to become a truly global company, with its customers able to access ONELAN's leading digital signage and visual communications solutions as a natural extension to their current portfolio of products.
ONELAN is a global leader in developing and managing visual applications such as digital signage, wayfinding, and meeting space bookings. Its footprint spans across 6,000 projects in 50 countries and operates in the education, corporate, retail and hospitality sectors.
"Uniguest is a natural partner for us as their Secured Advantage product goes hand-in-hand with our interactive signage solutions," ONELAN Chief Commercial Officer Hugh Coghill-Smith said. "Both companies strive to bring the most value to our customers. We determined the best way to provide a seamless customer experience was to bring the two portfolios together as one offering."
"Digital engagement is something we see as a crucial component to the future of the industries we operate in," Uniguest CEO Jeff Hiscox said. "After doing a thorough review of the market, we realized ONELAN's solutions are best in class and our combined solutions will drive a new "digital infusion" in the public use space of our customers."
For the near future, ONELAN will continue to operate as a stand-alone business with its current team members out of the Reading, U.K. headquarters. There will be no change to the ONELAN brand, which is highly valued. Uniguest will add the signage offerings into its solution set, and the products will immediately be available to Uniguest clients.

Hugh Coghill-Smith, ONELAN CCO Chief Commercial Officer commented; 'We're delighted to be working with PROFDISPLAY in Russia. The natural synergies between our two companies will help better serve and support our customers within the region and we look forward to working together."

ONELAN has achieved the ISO 9001_2015 standard following a rigorous independent assessment, making it one of the first companies in Europe to have achieved this accolade.
Achieving this new ISO standard is a recognition of ONELAN's ongoing commitment to its customers globally, and of its continued ability to deliver high quality products coupled with exceptional customer service.
Mark Cronin, Chief Technical Officer, commented, "The migration from the ISO 9001:2008 standard to the ISO 9001:2015 standard has seen some key changes and improvements."
He continued, "Fortunately as the management team has always driven quality from the top down, ONELAN was already compliant with many of the changes to the standard, however we've had to ensure all of our processes are still suitably robust. It's a testament to the commitment of the ONELAN team and our company ethos that we've achieved this significant milestone somewhat earlier than most."

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.
