Businesses across Western Canada can now sync files to the cloud faster, video conference seamlessly and connect more devices
CALGARY, Alberta, July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shaw Business today announced the launch of SmartWiFi 300 and Business Internet 300 — two new Internet plans designed to provide the speeds and unlimited data businesses need to run their operations seamlessly while keeping more of their customers’ devices connected.
“Whether they’re checking emails, tracking finances or processing sales, businesses depend on reliable connectivity to manage their day-to-day operations and better serve their customers,” said Katherine Emberly, President, Business, Brand Marketing and Communications, Shaw Communications. “Shaw Business’ latest Internet plans provide the speeds and data businesses rely on to effectively run their systems, and the advanced tools they need to better understand customer trends — all while connecting more guests simultaneously.”
Business Internet 300 offers download speeds of up to 300 megabits-per-second, making it even easier for business employees to share files through cloud storage services, video conference with colleagues and operate point of sale systems more effectively. SmartWiFi 300 takes this functionality even further by providing an enterprise-grade WiFi solution that also gives owners insight into customer trends, which can empower them to engage with their clientele in new ways by delivering targeted messages and special offers directly to their smartphones, tablets and laptops.
SmartWiFi 300 also benefits businesses by providing:
- Simultaneous device connections: increased bandwidth allows for more devices to be connected to the network at once without compromising speed.
- Instant analytics: insights into most popular social media outlets and physical foot traffic at any given time of day help influence digital marketing campaigns and onsite collateral.
- Three separate networks: running separate networks for your business, your guests, and Shaw customers using the Shaw Go WiFi network, to help protect sensitive information while providing the public WiFi that Canadians expect.
- Bandwidth allocation: monitor and limit bandwidth usage so that data-heavy users do not impact overall service.
SmartWiFi 300 is now available starting at $125 per month on a three-year term. Business Internet 300 is available starting at $110 per month on a three-year contract.
SmartWiFi can be bundled with SmartSecurity and SmartSurveillance — Shaw Business’ managed network security and surveillance solutions — which can all be easily maintained through one integrated dashboard.
