Since She Owns It is a site devoted to entrepreneurship and small business, we occasionally review products and services that would appeal to our community. Such was the case with WiFi Pro recently unveiled by Comcast Business. WiFi Pro is a comprehensive WiFi solution that includes fast speeds, cloud-based controls, marketing tools and other advanced capabilities.
According to Cisco, Wi-Fi devices will power a majority of all Internet traffic by 2017, and a 2015 study by Tech Pro Research found that 74 percent of businesses are using or are planning to use “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies. These, and other trends in consumer and employee behavior are causing demand for Wi-Fi to grow exponentially. WiFi Pro was built to enable businesses to serve both guests/patrons and employees.
Most small business owners want to focus on building their business and not trying to install and configure a wireless network. Without an in-house tech staff DIYing it can be difficult and time consuming. WiFi Pro changes all that.
With WiFi Pro small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) can:
- Set up an employee and a guest network in minutes.
- Create a custom splash.
- Create a custom landing page.
- Create a custom coupon or offer to encourage repeat business.
- Access to hotspots across U.S. Perfect when you’re traveling for business.
- Professional installation and solid security features.
- Affordable. Some plans are as low as $19.95 per month.
AND there’s an app for that! WiFi Pro can be managed on a smart device through a mobile app or an online portal that gives businesses additional capabilities like on-demand activity reporting and network configuration controls to set schedules and allocate bandwidth.
WiFi Pro complements Comcast Business’ full range of Wi-Fi offerings, including managed WiFi from Comcast Business’ new Enterprise Solutions unit. For more information, visit business.comcast.com/wifipro.
