With the number of public WiFi hotspots set to grow to 5.8 million by 2015 – triple the number of hotspots in 2011 – more business owners than ever are faced with the decision to offer wireless access to their customers.

But will it benefit their bottom line?

In a word: yes. As internet-enabled devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets grow ever more ubiquitous, customers are increasingly demanding wireless access just about anywhere they go. Here are a few ways in which businesses can profit from offering WiFi to their customers:

Data has shown that not only do customers expect WiFi, offering an Internet connection at your business can help increase your bottom line. But doesn’t sharing your WiFi password pose a security risk--especially if your point of sale is cloud-based? With Revel, you won’t have to worry about a decrease in security if you choose to offer WiFi to your patrons. Revel operates on its own network which is both hidden and secure from unauthorized access. The WiFi you offer your customers will be totally separate, ensuring they will have access to Internet without your business suffering any negative effects. Moreover, Revel offers wifi management, which allows you to monitor and enhance your POS system’s connectivity, ensuring you have the best connection available. Compatible with all internet service providers, the Wifi Management system enables business owners not only establish a strong network, but take advantage of the benefits of a cloud-based system. Additional wireless access points boost signal and ensure optimum performance, so your clients can surf to their hearts’ content.

Our all-in-one package includes:
