Keep customers and employees connected with a choice of three managed solutions.
People want to stay connected. Whether it's at the airport or at the coffee shop around the corner, today's public expects broadband wherever they go. Keeping your employees connected to your network via in-store wireless also allows them to stay on the store floor to better serve your customers. For retailers, restaurants, hotels, and other businesses, offering Wi-Fi can be the difference between keeping customers coming back and losing them to the competition.
But offering Wi-Fi does pose challenges. How will you manage the costs and complexity? How can you keep your network secure and compliant? How can you make sure to provide a positive user experience?
Hughes solves these challenges with Hughes Wi-Fi Services. There are three service options to choose from: Guest Wi-Fi, Enterprise Wi-Fi, and PCI Rogue Wireless Detection. With nationwide coverage, Hughes reduces the complexity of offering Wi-Fi. No multiple carriers, vendors, or providers. You get everything you need in a single, managed solution.
Hughes Guest Wi-Fi provides your customers with high quality access to the Internet while they are in your establishment. As soon as a guest opens a browser, they are re-directed to your welcome screen, which is an ideal marketing channel for you to promote your brand, special promotions, and local partner advertising. As a managed service, you can rest easy knowing the service will delight your customers, and in the unlikely event there is an issue, Hughes will handle everything.
Today's enterprises are making more and more use of Wi-Fi to help employees stay connected when in the field—whether they're managing inventory at a warehouse or helping customers on the sales floor.
