Retail Wi-Fi & Connectivity

Restaurants, cafes & shopping centres. Beat the competition with a connectivity solution that’s suited to you and your users, encouraging loyal and returning customers.

Offering free Wi-Fi to customers within your retail store, cafe or restaurant not only provides an additional convenience to them, it’s also provides an excellent marketing opportunity. Not only are customers more likely to spend more time in your establishment, they’re also significantly more likely to visit if you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection, creating a convenient and improved shopping or dining experience.

Offering a secure Wi-Fi connection will give you additional insight into your customers behaviour; for example, you’ll be able to see how many are connected and find out the best time and day of the week to market to them. Sales will also increase because with a stable WiFi connection customers will have the ability to immediately buy online if something is out of stock rather than wandering off to the nearest competitor!

Customer Wi-Fi & On-boarding

Stores can design tailored onboarding, advertising and data capture experiences. Easy integration and loyalty programs allow for a differentiated experience for your customers.

Targeted advertising at onboarding, with an easy to use campaign management tool, allows stores to advertise to their customers. Advertisements can be scheduled in advance or uploaded on the fly and Encapto’s role-based access system allows end users to take care of their own marketing campaigns without the need to bother their network service provider.

Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN)

Retail stores need a scalable Wi-Fi solution through a secure network to ensure there’s a fast uninterrupted connection at all times. With a varying number of people online at any one time, each with differing demands on the connection, the bandwidth needs to be variable for each user, yet resilient enough to ensure each customer experiences a reliable connection.
