(Gawkwire) – Config, one of the major players in the retail market of IT security solutions, has announced the new partnership with Cloud4Wi, a provider of an innovative cloud platform for managing and monetizing Wi-Fi services.
Cloud4Wi’s cloud platform allows venues to engage their customers and generate additional revenues over their Wi-Fi network by leveraging the customizable splash portal and powerful applications. Benefits of Cloud4Wi to venues are multiple – they can promote special offers to customers via the branded splash portal, provide easy-to-use applications to help customers enjoy their visits, utilize powerful marketing tools to retain and develop their customer bases, capture customer data via sophisticated analytics tools and spread their brand thanks to social Wi-Fi.
Guillaume Deunf, Marketing Director of Config says, "The development of public Wi-Fi in enterprises of all sizes and in public places involves having an access portal effective and simple to manage. This portal is a phenomenal opportunity for targeted communications, yet few customers exploit these opportunities.
As a Wi-Fi and Security expert we chose to reference Coud4Wi to complete our offer and propose a cloud portal solution allowing customers to easily develop their communication and revenues.”
Gianni Altamura, VP International Sales of Cloud4Wi commented, “Today the Wi-Fi is a basic commodity. People want to get the Wi-Fi anywhere and anytime and, most of all, free-of-charge. So venues need to find a solution to be rewarded for the Wi-Fi they offer. Thanks to the first Wi-Fi marketplace, Cloud4Wi perfectly addresses that challenge. We are delighted to be working with Config and we believe that this partnership enables us to bring our expansion plans.”
