ONYX, Particularly ONYX Thrive, has had a large impact on our business. With as much equipment as we have running at any one time, Thrive has been instrumental in keeping us fast, reliable and consistent.
We first bought ONYX PosterShop in 2005 and upgraded to ONYX Thrive once we grew and needed network licensing and connectivity between devices, which was especially helpful in keeping operational with any printer downtime. We had looked at Caldera before but they require a new operating system using Linux inside Mac and it’s a costly new hardware. ONYX runs on our systems and doesn’t require us to buy new hardware. I’m not sure people know just how much money that saves! (más…)
“We print A LOT! We print on various materials across many different machines and ONYX runs our entire site.”
“We print A LOT! We print on various materials across many different machines and ONYX runs our entire site. We print to 3 roll to roll printers and 3 flatbed printers, every day, 24/7 so having a RIP software we can depend on is a must for our success. The volume we are able to print day to day is down to ONYX software. It’s fast, precise and a single platform from start to finish. We also have customers who depend on us to ensure color is consistent from location to location on many different types of material. ONYX software is the only site solution that we could depend on the same way our customers depend on us. Their support line is excellent, the software has the fastest RIP and runs nonstop plus the color consistency helps us keep our promises to our customers so they keep coming back.
We use ONYX Thrive, one of the ONYX SiteSolution products, to keep our productivity up as we can change our production workflow as we see fit to meet the needs of our customers. Without this network feature we’d be in a bind. One of the unique things, however, that we couldn’t do without, is the ability to search for old jobs and send multiple files that go into the same RIP queue as different files. It helps us keep on top of our production. One other feature we love is the built in G7 verification which complements our G7 master qualification on grayscale images. So many of our customers don’t realize how grayscales can print differently using different inks. It’s been a great help to our customers. (más…)
“We have no time for guess work with our time constraints, it has to be perfect and it has to be now! ONYX does that for us.”
“We originally bought ONYX PosterShop in 2009 but as we upgraded our HP Latex machines and bought more machines and new computers in 2016, we needed a single solution to run everything on a network. We’ve always been impressed with ONYX software so as we upgraded our hardware it was only natural for us to upgrade to the network license ONYX Thrive to run all of our machines across our entire site.
But it’s so much more than that, we’re a race team, we travel all over the country and we often need work printed at the drop of a hat or if we have a last minute change on the car that needs to be wrapped to show our colors and those of our sponsors. ONYX Thrive, as part of the ONYX SiteSolutions product family, has unbelievable RIP speeds (we like speed, we are a race team after all) and it’s dependable! I know that the job I did 5 seconds ago is going to look the same as the job I did 6 months ago, we have no time for guess work with our time constraints, it has to be perfect and it has to be now! ONYX does that for us.
