Boingo (News - Alert) Wireless has been known as one of the best wireless service providers in the U.S., and has had contracts with some of the bigger firms in the country. With clients all over the map in the technology field, Boingo wireless announced recently that they had also scored a contract with fast food giant, Wendy’s.
Boingo will be offering its wireless services to all Wendy’s restaurants in the United States. Boingo will be installing and maintaining the networks, so Wendy’s will not have to hire IT professionals to work on a problem that might arise in one of their tens of thousands of buildings nationwide.
Boingo will also be working hand in hand with Wendy’s in order to assemble a uniform wireless Internet experience no matter which store a customer attends. According to both companies, the Boingo experience will be brought into both company and franchise locations.
“Our partnership with Wendy’s is a significant milestone in our ongoing expansion into high-traffic consumer venues,” said Peter Hultgren, vice president of business development, Boingo Wireless (News - Alert). “Boingo has more than a decade of experience in enhancing the guest experience via our Wi-Fi, and in increasing customer engagement through collaborative marketing programs. We look forward to rolling out service to Wendy’s restaurants.”
Boingo said that as part of this particular agreement, the company will offer wireless service that will be fully PCI (News - Alert)-compliant. In other words, both networks can assure customers that the wireless access will be fully family friendly no matter what location they use.
The full tally of Boingo wireless has reached more than 500,000 hotspots worldwide for retail and wholesale companies.
Boingo is quite the operation when it comes to malls, airports and sports arenas. The company also has a huge presence in conventional centers and larger buildings of that ilk. Being able to handle providing wireless access to customers in smaller areas like a Wendy’s restaurant is right up the company’s alley.
