Launched earlier in the year, FLX has been an instant success for Zero 88 in a number of sectors from rental companies to theatres, churches to multi-purpose venues.
The Innovation Awards were judged by a number of leading and highly experienced industry professionals.
Their comment was that the FLX offered "a revolutionary approach to colour and movement for the tablet generation as being part of a well thought out-desk package aimed at an accessible price point for entry-level and more professional users."
