The Excellence in Product Innovation Awards is a recognition program for manufacturers and products that have a profound impact on systems integrators.

The awards were announced on Feb. 28 at NSCA’s 25th annual Business & Leadership Conference in Irving, TX.

Skykit made waves in the AV industry in March 2022 with the launch of Dashboard Connections, a premium feature for its award-winning CMS, Beam. This innovative solution allows businesses to seamlessly and securely connect their cloud-based data and analytics tools to digital signage, empowering them to deliver real-time insights and data-driven content to their audiences. In the short time since its introduction, Dashboard Connections has been met with resounding success and has seen significant market adoption.

“We are witnessing a significant shift in how organizations utilize their business data to drive critical decisions and employee performance,” explained Irfan Khan, CEO and co-founder of Skykit. With an abundance of data available to them, our customers are leveraging visualizations and dashboards to make this data actionable. It’s no surprise that our largest customer deals all include Dashboard Connections in their project scope. These organizations are experiencing the power of real-time data firsthand.”

With Skykit’s integration approach and easy-to-use digital signage CMS, organizations are no longer limited in how they share real-time information and dashboards across their employee base. And, they can rotate real-time data visualizations with other key corporate messaging – all to keep employees informed and engaged.

Additional considerations were made during the judging process in regard to how the products impact user experience (i.e. scalability, versatility, deployment cost, ease of use, ROI, ADA compliance, energy efficiency, etc.) The judging panel included NSCA’s director of business resources, the editor of Commercial Integrator, and a panel of integrators from across North America.

“Every year, manufacturers submit more products for consideration, and we’re inspired by the innovation we continue to learn about,” says NSCA Director of Business Resources Mike Abernathy. “As the judging team evaluates each nomination, we see innovation and forward-thinking progress behind every product. It’s clear that manufacturers are working hard to create systems to create the experiences that end-users now expect integrators to help them create.”
