Do you want our most-requested Guest Wi-Fi functions up and running in a matter of days? That work across multiple Wi-Fi vendors and sites? Welcome to Aptilo Guest Wi-Fi Cloud™ which is build on the award-winning Aptilo Venue Wi-Fi Manager.
A paradigm shift in Guest Wi-Fi services
There is a shift in how businesses look at Guest Wi-Fi services. Wi-Fi service control solutions used to be handled by the IT department. Now it has become a business tool.
A courtesy Guest Wi-Fi service used to be a cost center. Now it is a business asset:
- Engage with customers in a more personalized way
- Monetize from increased customer loyalty
- Get customer insights from Wi-Fi analytics
It’s a new world.
Multi-Everything Guest Wi-Fi Cloud service
Multi-vendor support is not the same as supporting standard protocols. Not in our book. We have added specific adaptations to make sure you get the most out of the hardware from our Wi-Fi partners.
Aptilo Guest Wi-Fi Cloud is designed for large multi-site organizations. Your local sites, and even locations within the sites, are arranged in a hierarchy of Wi-Fi zones. This allows you to delegate parts of the administration of captive portals, analytics, user engagement and monetization to your local sites.
Captive portals – that anyone can update
The captive portal used to be a way to control user access. It still is. But, now the role has extended to become one of the best ways to engage with users before they get online. This is why we have designed our user interface so that anyone, even someone with zero knowledge of web design, can update the captive portal. You can also schedule portal updates to kick-in at a certain date and time. Learn more about the Captive Portal Manager.
Customer insights through Wi-Fi Analytics
Our Wi-Fi analytics interface leverages the best of the latest web technologies to give the user an intuitive tool to work with. The layout is automatically adapted to the size of your screen.
Every user can create one or many Quickviews and Dashboards that show the information they are interested in. The predefined data that can be visualized include user demographics, user sessions, devices, login methods, usage and payments.
In Quickview you can add information displayed through a simple number or percentages. This provides an immediate view of important data such as the share of different device OS types, female/male visitors and the number of GB downloaded. More complex data, comparing several parameters or showing trends, are visualized in the Dashboards through graphical diagrams.
Based on a platform you can trust
There are many cloud-based Guest Wi-Fi services out there. One promising more creativity than the other. But, it is crucial that you get the functions you really need and that your Guest Wi-Fi service always works. Day after day, around the clock.
This is where Aptilo comes in.
