Wifi solutions for hotels adapted to the challenges of hotel professionals
We live in a hyper-connected environment: as a hotelier, it is essential to offer your customers the best possible experience during their stay in your establishment. Installing hotel wifi is no longer just a competitive advantage. It is a requirement that meets the demands of your guests and can help you to drive your business through targeted marketing. However, the deployment of a visitor wifi cannot be improvised.
In the age of digital and user experience, the hotel and restaurant sector is looking for solutions to enrich each customer’s visit. But in this hyper-competitive sector, with long and intense days, how can you take the time to offer a differentiating and unique experience for each customer?
Wi-Fi: a lever of opportunity for the hotel industry.
CONNECT your guests, COLLECT information about their behaviour and ENGAGE them through offers and promotional campaigns.
While a Wi-Fi network may seem like a simple cost item or just a nice service to offer your guests, it actually has many benefits you probably don’t realise. As soon as a public hotspot is made available, it is mandatory for you to comply with legal requirements, which will then become a fabulous engagement lever. Tailor-made guest access can therefore meet the needs of the hospitality industry: from family-run businesses to large chains and 5-star hotels.
Offering an immersive experience is a necessity for the hotel industry.
UCOPIA allows you to connect your establishment in a flexible and efficient manner while remaining serene.
Whether it is due to technical constraints or to take your customers on a journey through the digital universe developed by your hotel, the personalisation of this digital experience is possible thanks to UCOPIA solutions.
Our objective is to give you the keys to improve the digital experience of your customers, to better understand them and thus be able to communicate relevant information to them, tailored to their needs and in real time.
“The UCOPIA Advance solution allows us to control our Wi-Fi network much better. We know who uses it and for what purpose. With this information, we are able to define tailor-made promotional campaigns for our guests and visitors.
What are the advantages of a wifi installation for a hotel?
Whatever the status of your establishment, ensuring and guaranteeing the comfort of your customers is undoubtedly your primary objective. However, the expectations of your customers, whether they are professionals or individuals, have evolved. Offering wifi in a hotel room is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. A connection via a poor quality captive wifi portal can damage your brand image. Most guests want to use the Internet through Wi-Fi without interruptions or slowness, to watch videos, download documents, access premium services or surf the web.
It’s about turning your establishment into a truly connected hotel, capable of offering a flawless connection in rooms, common areas, restaurants and meeting rooms. In any case, the installation of a hotel wifi will be a value-added service that will help attract and retain your customers.
Indeed, WiFi in a hotel room is no longer limited to a range of standard services, restricted to the sole connection via a captive WiFi portal. It is now essential to provide a personalised browsing experience for each guest, based on their native language and profile. Analytical data, collected in accordance with privacy regulations, is a valuable source of information for the hospitality industry.
Getting to know your clientele better thanks to hotel wifi can help you improve the comfort level of your establishment and define offers that are more in line with the requirements of your market. In this respect, hotel Wi-Fi is the basis for new perspectives in which information and communication technologies play a special role. From the virtualisation of the customer experience to the deployment of a digital instore, there is only one step that the technological tools will allow you to take. Thanks to its experience in the creation and installation of wifi for hotels, UCOPIA enables you to make your customers’ reception more profitable. Our professional solutions allow wifi terminals to become sustainable growth levers for your establishment.
Wifi installation: what is the regulatory framework?
Our service dedicated to hotel WiFi raises regulatory issues that hoteliers must be fully aware of and understand. The provision of a public wifi hotspot requires compliance with the rules relating to data processing and confidentiality. This is why it is preferable to entrust the deployment of a wifi hotspot for hotels to a professional. UCOPIA offers to set up a wifi network for hotels or a connection portal, often called a captive portal, in full compliance with legislation: RGPD, Anti-Terrorism Act.
