Supporting change in the Forecourts sector
As demand for fuel falls and the petrol forecourts sector shifts its focus to address the evolving needs of its customers, new digital applications are needed to implement change. Whether installing EV charging points, establishing new food outlets or offering value-added services, such as parcel collection, laundry, car repair or customer Wi-Fi, the digital platforms required to deliver these offerings requires a robust network.
Applications, such as upgraded Point of Sale systems, inventory management, smart cameras and click-and-collect smart lockers, will all compete for your network’s bandwidth. Adopting these new applications supports excellent business opportunities, but the strain on the network can hinder user experience.
With it's visibility and centralised control, combined with a variety of coverage options, wireless WAN for forecourts will ensure the availability and performance needed.
If you are taking on new sites or creating temporary locations, getting connected to the network swiftly to maximise productivity is critical. However, the physical communications infrastructure needed to offer this connectivity can take weeks. A delay that cannot be afforded during challenging economic times when competition is high.
Deploying network connectivity more efficiently will give your organisation the flexibility it needs to evolve.
Consistency of network service across your multiple sites is also crucial to sustainable growth and success. Employees and customers expect to access the information and services they require at a click of a button, wherever they are located. However, when out of terrestrial coverage or should your primary connectivity service fail, there needs to be an alternative in place to avoid network interruptions and user frustration.
With our wireless WAN for forecourts solution, Optimised Wireless Network Edge, your forecourt business can access the network agility, availability and performance needed to grow, evolve and meet the changing needs of today's consumers.
