Is your WiFi ready for social distancing?
Businesses such as pubs and restaurants are now opening back up in time for Summer. Some restrictions are in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19: not allowing bar service, offering table service instead and taking a register of all customers. Our G5Zone Outdoor WiFi package can help make some of the new guidelines easier to manage.
In England, pubs and restaurants can open from 4th July with social distancing measures.
In Scotland, beer gardens and outdoor restaurants will be allowed to reopen from 6 July.
In Northern Ireland, pubs and restaurants can open from 3 July.
Please check your local government website for up to date guidelines on re-opening.
Do you have good WiFi coverage?
In order to take contactless card payments from your customers or to allow them to order via an app you will need good WiFi coverage inside as well as in your outside space. G5Zone is a fully managed WiFi service from G5 Technologies that gives each of your guests wireless internet access anywhere on your premises. Our aim is to help you gain advantage over your competition by maximising WiFi uptime and minimising customer complaints.
- A reliable, high speed WiFi service that is legally compliant
- Excellent aftercare service with 24/7 support
G5Zone Outdoor WiFi provides easy to install options designed to get you and your outdoor space up and running as soon as possible.
G5Zone Outdoor WiFi Package
Our Standard Outdoor WiFi package includes an Outdoor WiFi access point and Outdoor WiFi router (both suitable for outdoor use and harsh environments) with an unlimited 4G Data Sim. Both the router and access point are centrally managed from our Cloud based Dashboard making maintenance and configuration changes easy for organisations of all sizes from single-site deployments to thousands of locations.
Outdoor WiFi Security
IT Security is now a vital part of your business. Luckily we are IT and WiFi Security experts! Our Outdoor WiFi access point broadcasts a GDPR compliant branded guest WiFi network for your customers. This reinforces your brand and gives you the opportunity to collect valuable customer data. The Outdoor WiFi access point can also be configured to provide a PCI Compliant WiFi network for your EPOS till & PDQ machine(s).
Outdoor WiFi Installation
Our offering is shipped fully tested and pre-configured and can be deployed & installed by you in your chosen outdoor space. If you prefer to have an onsite installation carried out this can also be arranged.
In line with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) public WiFi providers need to be very clear with what data they are gathering from users on their guest network. By nature WiFi gathers personal data so it can be easily adapted to collect the data needed to help track and trace for the NHS Test and Trace program. G5Zone Outdoor WiFi can provide a GDPR ready guest registration system for contact tracing per government guidelines.
So we offer an add on to our standard Outdoor WiFi package:
COVID-19 Test & Trace Add on
Plans are being put in place for customers in England to be asked to register in advance or check in as they arrive at pubs and restaurants to aid the re-opening of the hospitality sector. The register is to include the date and time of a guests entry as well as their full name, address, phone number and email address. With G5Zone Outdoor WiFi there is an option to include this SMS voucher system. The SMS voucher system allows for user to continue onto the network quickly and safely as follows:
- Step 1 – WiFi registration requests all required data from guest.
- Step 2 – SMS is sent to guest
- Step 3 – Guest shows voucher to server to prove they have registered.
To comply with data protection rules all data is set to automatically deleted after 21 days. This feature can also be used to ask customers about their marketing preferences so is a great tool to grow your audience. We also offer a similar service Social WiFi.
Please note that although this post mentions mainly pubs and restaurants our Outdoor WiFi and its track and trace option is suitable for any business looking to provide outdoor access to their WiFi.
