  • Visioneer’s Strobe 500 Document Scanner has been named a PC Magazine “Best of the Year 2010” award winner in two different categories, desktop scanner and mobile scanner.   

    “We have tremendous respect for the analysts, labs and editors at PC Magazine who truly understand the technology, value and benefits of document scanning,” said John Capurso, vice president of marketing at Visioneer, which has its headquarters in Hacienda. “We are further appreciative of their recognition of the Strobe 500. The hard work and dedication of many people at Visioneer have made this product a success and an impressive productivity tool for our customers.”    

    According to PC Magazine, product testing included benchmarks, stress tests, green tech checks (including a product's energy efficiency, recyclability, and what kind of environmental certifications it has). “From these tests and with a large dollop of experience, expertise, and common sense, they determine how to rate these products, and in particular, which get picked as an Editors' Choice.”
  • Three Hacienda companies — Adept Technology, IntegenX, and Xradia — were among the finalists for the recent California Game Changer awards, as determined by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GoED).

Ayala. “The Game Changers Conference gives us the opportunity to recognize and honor a select group of companies who are cementing California’s global economic standing by reinventing tomorrow for the rest of the world.”
