ONELAN Enjoys Continued Sales Growth

ONELAN Digital Signage has once again achieved profitable sales growth for the seventh year in a row with increased NTB sales volumes up 13% from 2010.

Continued export success has been largely responsible, with units shipped remaining strong at 45% of the company’s total as ONELAN continues to extend its global reach.

R&D expenditure has continued to exceed the industry average at 20% of turnover, underlining ONELAN’s commitment to bringing innovative solutions to market for the next ten years and beyond.

To underpin this growth ONELAN’s management team has been strengthened with the addition of new people as the business continues to establish itself as a market leader of Digital Signage and content communication in the widest sense.

David Dalzell, ONELAN’s Managing Director comments “My vision for ONELAN for the years ahead is to provide a broad range of solutions in the Digital signage sector that appeal to diverse markets. Our resellers can be confident in the knowledge that we have the resources in place to bring the right solutions to market to support their customer’s future needs.”

Digital Menuboard Whitepaper

ONELAN’s Digital menuboard whitepaper looks at the benefits of digital menu boards with real-life examples of how they are used in a wide range of different environments e.g Ferries, in Petrol Stations, Mines and Universities.
In an increasingly competitive market, digital menu boards enable restaurant and bar managers to keep pace or stay ahead of their competition. For example by using digital signage, restaurant managers are able to incorporate full-motion video into their menu displays and instantly update content to account for last-minute product and price changes for a single location or multiple locations, from anywhere in the world.

This whitepaper gives real life examples of where and how digital menu boards are used. It also investigates getting started with digital signage and provides insight into the best ways to achieve this.

Family Planning Communicates with ONELAN

Every year, more than 200,000 New Zealanders use Family Planning’s sexual and reproductive health services. In addition to its well known clinical services, Family Planning offers sexual and reproductive health information and services for all people at all stages of their life. It runs health promotion classes for young people, parents and community groups, and provides clinical training and development for doctors, nurses, teachers and community workers.

Family Planning was looking for a solution to deliver information to clients at 19 of its clinics across New Zealand. The goal was to manage this from their national office in Wellington. This campaign was another part of the mix to promote safer sex and relationships messages to one of their key audiences, young people. ONELAN digital signage was chosen to achieve this.

Family Planning had the following key objectives for its signage.
• To share sexual health information with clinic visitors and to maximise use of existing information resources.
• To engage with and inform visitors in its waiting rooms with information and quizzes all focussed on sexual and reproductive health.
• To inform visitors of the range of services it offers including sexual and reproductive health, clinical services, education, and training and research.

ONELAN digital signage was chosen due to its ease of use, content and display options and scheduling capabilities.

ONELAN Net top Box (NTB)-510S SSD media players and 32” LCD screens are installed in 19 clinics nationwide, and a NTB-5500P media player is installed at the head office in central Wellington.

The content is fully managed from the national office in Wellington by Family Planning employees. The content being displayed in clinics consists of
Predesigned jpeg images containing key messaging and images, and Local RSS news feeds.

End Result
A recent survey of clinic clients found that 74% of them had learned information about sexual health and relationships from reading the clinic screens.

“Sitting in a clinic, even if they are only waiting for five minutes, it would be possible for a young person to see three or four different messages on these information screens. This is unlikely to happen if the information was being delivered through any other medium, such as browsing through leaflets; nor would they receive the same depth of information if they were looking at a poster” said Family Planning Chief Executive Jackie Edmond.
