At the upcoming PRINTING United tradeshow in Dallas, Onyx Graphics, Inc., will be providing a first glimpse of the next version release of ONYX Hub, the company’s business intelligence tool for wide-format print. ONYX Hub was first released in 2017 as the first-to-market solution to bring business and production together with entire site visibility and an intuitive dashboard for reporting ink usage, media waste and actual job costs to make better business decisions. ONYX Hub 2.0 introduces new secure server encryption and active user management controls to protect sensitive print production data and secure customer information.
“Modern print shops need easy-to-use tools that can provide them with real-time data to better understand the actual costs of printing,” said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “Ensuring that data is protected is paramount for business owners to feel at ease with new technologies that are coming into this market.”
ONYX Hub 2.0 also introduces a better way to manage job submission from pre-press to production, saving valuable time to more print jobs per day. Coupled with a newly designed responsive interface that automatically optimizes for any device, ONYX Hub 2.0 helps users easily access site-wide print production data from any network desktop, tablet or mobile web browser.
The announcement of ONYX Hub 2.0 coincides with the inaugural PRINTING United tradeshow, powered by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) to bring all print under one roof. “PRINTING United embodies the history of the SGIA Expo as a conduit for new and interesting technologies coming to market,” said Ray Weiss, Director of Digital Print Programs at SGIA. “The purpose of PRINTING United is to provide access to the latest innovations and solutions designed to enhance our industry and ONYX Hub 2.0 is exactly that.”
