Onyx Hub, a business intelligence tool developed by Onyx Graphics, was the recent recipient of a Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Product of the Year Award. The product won in the ‘Software: Workflow/RIP or Web-based Design, Personalisation, or Product Bldg. Technology’ category.
‘We are ecstatic to receive the product of the year award for ONYX Hub software,’ said Bryan Manwaring, director of product marketing at Onyx Graphics. ‘To be recognised by a panel of industry experts for a solution to help print shops of all sizes become more profitable is truly amazing.’ ONYX Hub is an industry first for bringing business intelligence to wide format and grand format print, designed to bring real-time, historic and trend data to business owners and production managers, enabling them to make better business decisions.’
More than 70 companies competed in the 2017 Product of the Year Awards, submitting 222 entries over the competition’s categories — the largest field of competitors in the awards programme’s history. Ray Weiss, SGIA’s digital imaging specialist, coordinated the yearly awards programme and said competition was tight. ‘This was the best year for entries that I can remember,’ Weiss said. ‘In addition to the sheer volume of competitors, product quality was outstanding. Onyx Graphics’ award was well-earned.’
The award will be presented on 9 October in conjunction with the SGIA exhibition.
