Westcon-Comstor wins distribution rights to Linkyfi
Westcon-Comstor has signed a distribution agreement with Linkyfi, a public WiFi access management and marketing platform solution from AVSystem.
The new vendor agreement will enable Westcon-Comstor channel partners to turn customers' existing WiFi installations into intelligent systems without having to rip and replace.
Linkyfi lets customers manage access to WiFi networks while gaining marketing insights, irrespective of the networking hardware platform used.
"By implementing Linkyfi in an existing WiFi environment, customers will be able to take back control of their WiFi and start monetising transactions and engagements, using data insight tools," says Rentia Booysen, collaboration business unit manager at Westcon-Comstor.
"The WiFi market continues to grow as customers demand quality networks for their own business and consumers," she says. "Linkyfi customers can tap into the power of access management, location services and data insights all in one solution," adds Booysen.
Linkyfi integrates into various networking vendors, including Ruckus Networks, Cisco and Aruba, she adds. The solution includes time and location-aware business analytics, as well as an intuitive portal editor for corporate branding management.
The marketing engine allows clients to use the insights they gather to run marketing campaigns based on customer profiles and WiFi access behaviour.
