Benefits of WiFi analytics for towns and cities

Entice retailers

Capture data and track thousands of users per month. Use the captured data to identify the retail hotspots around the city.

Identify city-goers

Capture customer data in real-time via a captive login portal – this can include name, email address, date of birth, hometown and much more. Segment and analyze the data quickly from a centralized analytics platform.

Understand customer movement

Monitor footfall to identify your most popular locations, most popular days, and most popular times of day. Quickly understand the different nationalities visiting your city and monitor the impact of structural improvements and how they change customer flow e.g. new signage.


Tell people what is happening in your city to drive revenue and increase retention. Has a new restaurant opened? Have you changed a public transport route? Is there an event happening in the city? Use splash pages to inform your visitors; improving the customer experience.

Simple and seamless login

Accessing the WiFi is quick and simple, using either a short registration form or connect with social to enable visitors to log on using their social media credentials. You can also completely customize your online and offline splash pages with specific branding, promotions and advertising.
