The Wonderful World of Meraki

IT Agility has never been easier to achieve!

In the never-ending evolutionary process of IT, agility is a term that has been loosely used, misused, and misunderstood. Starting as an approach in Software Development, agility has now evolved towards being adopted in a wider business context. Key players and leaders in the business agility field teamed up to produce the Business Agility Report. Respondents included in the study believe that the ability for an organisation to focus on business agility initiatives creates a ripple effect of positive outcomes – enhancing customer and employee satisfaction and retention, speed to market, market success, collaboration and communication, accountability, and improved ways of working – to mention a few! The report also reveals that, COVID or no COVID, every organisation needs to adapt to a constantly changing environment.

Managed Wi-Fi

The Future of Wi-Fi is Now

Wi-Fi networks and underlying technologies have recently undergone a huge leap in technological advancements. With Wi-Fi 6 certification approved in early 2021 by Wi-Fi Alliance, this will bring about a rise in innovation. Devices operating on this new spectrum will deliver lower latency, gigabit speeds and higher capacity. Operating on this band will need to have the respective network infrastructure in place to support a new user experience. With global network performance predictions increasing at an unprecedented rate, how will this affect your Wi-Fi network? There is only one way to look at it.

COVID-19 Social Distancing

Social distancing is something we all need to have in place for the safety of both our staff and our clientele.

Registering guests and customers is one thing but how do you actively control groups to ensure government restrictions are being met to avoid fines and further spread of the coronavirus?

We have a solution which is fully integrated into cloud-managed Smart Cameras which uses AI and location analytics.  Our Smart Cameras have the capability of setting camera threshold alerts with SMS alerts in a specifically designated zone. This can be extremely helpful for businesses, who can now send alerts to managers when more than the stipulated persons are allowed and seen within a specific zone within a time frame.

How Does it Help with Social Distancing?

This solution gives business 3 types of data-rich insights:

  1. Historical aggregate: How many people were in a given area at a specified time, and where exactly where they in the frame?
  2. Current snapshot: How many people are in a given area right now, and where exactly are they in the frame?
  3. Real-time feed: A stream of the number of people and their exact location in a frame.

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems especially ones which come out of nowhere such as social distancing for COVID-19. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

COVID-19 is affecting industries and sectors across the globe. Governments now require contact tracing as they placing restrictions on social gatherings and meeting in public places.

Plans are being put in place for customers to be asked to register in advance on check-in as they arrive at bars, malls, restaurants, and retail outlets to aid the reopening of the economy. We developed a guest registration system for contact tracing to help with the containment of the coronavirus.

How Does it Help with Contact Tracing?

Our system allows for users to register themselves quickly and safely, as they enter an establishment using the following steps

    1. User registers onto the Wi-Fi Network
    2. An SMS is sent to their phone
    3. SMS voucher is shown to a member of staff as prove of client registration and allowed entry

What’s Registered?

The registration includes the date and time of a guest’s entry, their full name, address, phone, and email address. Once the guest has registered a unique code is sent via SMS with a timestamp and validation period to show to staff.

What about GDPR?

To comply with data protection rules all data is automatically deleted after 21 days.

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems such as contact tracing. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.

COVID-19 Safe Occupancy

COVID-19 Social Occupancy

Real-time visual of social occupancy during this pandemic is vital to help protect customers and staff. Our solution utilizes Wi-Fi to ensure COVID-19 compliance. We do this by measuring, monitoring, predicting, alerting and notifying of potential non-compliant gatherings, or social distancing breaches in physical venues and outdoor locations.

It enables the business to use customer location data from the cloud-managed network to make defined business decisions and increased understanding of footfall to their locations. Businesses can now find out where visitors locate and spend most of their time instore, and how they move within specific locations.

How Does it Help with Social Occupancy?

Our solution uses both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth data to create a detailed overview of all your locations. Data collection includes:

  • Footfall overview and trends
  • Footfall by internal location
  • Device Types
  • Dwell times
  • User tracking in real-time
  • Location heat-maps
  • Return rates

This will tremendously help with:

  • Analysing where most of the customers bunch up in order to put barriers or separation stickers
  • Control groups of people
  • Alert when there are too many people inside at any given time
  • Use the data for other business benefits

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems especially ones which come out of nowhere such as keeping tabs on your establishment’s social occupancy. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.
