Several services for retail stores around a single wireless infrastructure

Deployment savings with a multi-service wireless infrastructure

Managing multiple wireless network infrastructures together can be complex and expensive. However, this type of need is becoming more and more common in retail stores and supermarkets with the omnipresence of WiFi, the specific uses of bluetooth and the progressive democratisation of the IoT.

To respond to this problem, Wifirst uses converged infrastructures, making it possible to unify the different types of wireless networks (WiFi, IoT & BLE) around the same infrastructure. The multi-service aspect has always been at the heart of Wifirst's offer. This pooling of the infrastructure allows for greatly facilitated management as well as a rationalisation of costs on equipment and deployment.

Unique expertise in WiFi management in complex environments

High ceiling height, large surface area to cover, high density of users ... points of sale, particularly in mass distribution, generally have relatively complex environments requiring proven technological expertise, coupled with extensive experience in the field, to ensure perfect management of the WiFi network .

Wifirst, with its team of WiFi auditors, its application developed in-house and its unique methodology, offers the highest level of expertise on the market. Our teams rely on feedback from several thousand sites deployed and operated to develop best practices adapted to each technical constraint.

A 100% integrated service: audit, deployment, operation, support ...

Specialist in "Network as a Service" , Wifirst masters all the links in the production chain to guarantee the best level of quality and thus meet the expectations of our customers. We are convinced that each "step" of the service influences the quality of the next, requiring a communion of the different teams involved around the same objective: to meet the quality requirements of Wifirst standards.

Our engineering teams will create the network architecture adapted to the client's needs, with the support of our auditors, who will confirm on site that the architecture precisely meets the specifications.

Our deployment team takes over with a dedicated project manager for each site to be equipped. He will be in charge of monitoring the project from the audit phase to commissioning, guaranteeing a personalised relationship with the client.

Throughout the contract, our support and maintenance teams work hand in hand to ensure optimal operation of the service, resolve potential technical incidents and meet contractually defined performance indicators.

Fluid project management and industrial production capacity

Wifirst, thanks to its agile organization and its industrial production capacity, is able to carry out very large-scale projects, such as the deployment of 3,000 post offices in less than 18 months. This asset becomes even more valuable when it comes to replacing existing infrastructures because it ensures a smooth transition between old and new installations but also limits the migration time.

In addition, we offer our clients unique web project management tools that allow them to have real-time information on the overall deployment schedule, the progress of each site, incident monitoring and history. Entrusting Wifirst with its large-scale retail WiFi project is the assurance of timely delivery and of compliance with all the commitments made.
