Nashville-based Uniguest™, a provider of print, technology and specialized services globally for the lodging, restaurant and healthcare industries, was named Best in Business by the Nashville Business Journal in a special ceremony on April 22.

The company won the award in the 26-100 employee category.
Presented to four businesses and one non-profit, the award was given by the Journal to outstanding companies that are “setting the benchmark for accomplishment in Nashville... and making their mark in the local business community.”
Winners were selected based upon revenue growth, business planning and execution, overcoming challenges, community involvement, as well as other criteria. Judges were George Armistead, Revenue Source Group; Michael Burcham, Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management; David Furse, Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management; Betsy Jones, Profit Sherpa LLC; and Don Roy, Middle Tennessee State University.

“We are honored to be named Best in Business,” said Shawn Thomas, CEO and co-founder of Uniguest. “An award like this one is achieved when a company is reaching its full potential and all of its employees are working together for the benefit of its customers. As an entrepreneur, it is hard to explain the joy you feel in your heart when the company receives an award. You know it was achieved because of the people who work there and contribute every day. It is an incredible feeling.”

Uniguest was founded in 2002 by Thomas. In 2009, it merged with U.S. Hospitality Publishers Inc. and acquired a third company — Dynamic Digital Designs™. Despite the challenges of consolidating all three businesses to create the new Uniguest, the company thrived with record-breaking growth and sales.

Today, Uniguest assists its customers by developing and supporting proprietary print and technology services. Whether you are a hotel guest printing your boarding pass at one of Uniguest’s terminals or finding local information from Uniguest’s Concierge Station™ or Quickscoop™ pre-printed products, Uniguest’s self-serve services make traveling easy.
Travelers are not the only ones who benefit from Uniguest, though. Older Americans can stay in touch with their loved ones via Skype® or share photos with easy-to-use secure computers placed in the business libraries of their senior facilities. Restaurants profit from additional revenues realized by professionally engineered and designed menus, as well as digital signage that displays daily specials and menu items.

“Uniguest has certainly been a company that is easy to do business with,” said Troy Carver, assistant general manager, Nashville Airport Marriott. “We have benefitted by its expansion of products. We prefer to buy multiple products and services from one company that knows our business instead of several. It reduces our administration time.”

Based in Nashville, Tenn., Uniguest is a diversified company providing print, technology and specialized services globally for the lodging, restaurant and healthcare industries. Products and services include custom-printed publications, security software solutions, self-serve kiosk solutions, advertising sales and help-desk computer support.
