Success Stories

ONYX SiteSolutions has large business impact

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! (more…)

“We definitely feel the impact of ONYX Hub on our business…it’s already improving our bottom line!”

Dr Sticker with ONYX HubWe have always wanted to drill down into the specifics of our print jobs and orders to make sure we are providing the best product for our clients while keeping our costs in check and our waste down. We needed a better way but there wasn’t anything available to the print industry until now. We were ecstatic when we learned about ONYX hub and what it meant for our company in terms of production and profitability, giving us the data we needed to estimate jobs better, fix bottleneck and increase profitability. Immediately we can see if anything has gone wrong in a print, determine waste and know exactly how much we earn on each order. We had bought ONYX Thrive, part of the ONYX SiteSolutions family back in 2015 instead of Caldera because of the ease of use and set up between multiple printers and print stations using their network license. We loved their support line to keep our production running when we added printers and hot folders keeps us running fast, automated and without mistakes! Now we have ONYX Hub, giving us that added layer of visibility that wasn’t possible before. We have a complete view of our entire production environment, we see every print job, every order, every print station and we can access it anywhere to know what’s going on. (more…)

“We print A LOT! We print on various materials across many different machines and ONYX runs our entire site.”

FASTSIGNS Chattanooga ONYX RIP software

“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. (more…)

“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 PosterShoandretti with ONYX RIP softwarep 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.


“Before purchasing ONYX, we carefully tested several other RIP-manufacturers but found the best solution in ONYX.”

“We’ve been in the printing industry for over 120 years, growing to a great team of 300 experts working across 3 printing plants in 1 location, with a 20,000 square meters printing environment, open 365 days a year. Over the years we moved to digital inkjet printing and have had our run with different RIP software.

We decided that as a business, we needed something to help us grow and scale our efforts to do more in less time which helped lead us to ONYX software. Before purchasing ONYX, we carefully tested several other RIP manufacturers but found the best solution in ONYX. Everyone said they had a solution just for us but after trying it, it was ONYX that really spoke to us. We moved from ONYX PosterShop to ONYX ProductionHouse and then to ONYX Thrive in 2013 because we needed one solution for our entire site.

ONYX Thrive really helped us because it brought with it a network capability nobody else had. We were able to move our production between machines based on the needs of the day and could upgrade to 14 digital LFP RIP stations in one go! We loved that ONYX had the fastest RIP times, the newest PDF engines and easy color profiling to get the highest color consistency across different devices or technologies. This is especially important when we need to hit corporate colors consistently.
