New Volare Partner Program gives solution providers everything they need to boost their Wi-Fi business
SAN FRANCISCO – August 3, 2016 – Cloud4Wi, the industry’s leader in advanced guest Wi-Fi, today announced the Volare™ Partner Program, a new world-class partner program that enables solution providers, service providers, and system integrators to seize the enormous business opportunity for personalized customer touch using guest Wi-Fi networks.
Wi-Fi is already a must-have for businesses, so using it to deliver services customers want and insights businesses need to compete is a logical and incremental next step. The demand for guest Wi-Fi is growing rapidly. According to Maravedis Research, it’s forecasted that 100M access points will offer guest Wi-Fi services by 2020, producing more than $25B in annual software licensing revenue. This represents a huge opportunity for partners already selling Wi-Fi as part of their portfolio.
At the heart of the new Program is Volare, Cloud4Wi’s flagship services platform for advanced guest Wi-Fi. Volare uses an over-the-top (OTT) architecture to enable partners to secure high value targets like retail brands, restaurant chains, and shopping malls by leveraging existing Wi-Fi networks. With Volare, businesses can provide superior on-site mobile experiences, while gaining valuable insights into who customers are and how they behave.
“Partners are at the core of our business,” said Andrea Calcagno, Cloud4Wi CEO and co-founder. “We’ve introduced this new partner program to make sure our partners are set up for success, enabling them with a new profit opportunity on top of their Wi-Fi services.”
“We’re delighted to participate in the revamped Volare Partner Program,” said Scott Pedersen, VP, Network Architecture, Pomeroy. “OTT guest Wi-Fi services are a rapidly growing market that addresses both existing and new Wi-Fi customers. The Volare Partner Program includes all the tools we need to take advantage of this burgeoning market opportunity.”
The Cloud4Wi Volare Partner Program offers a flexible structure with different levels designed to accommodate partners’ individual business models and needs. Most importantly, this program provides everything a service provider, solution provider, or system integrator would need to tackle this growing market, including discounts, deal registration, marketing development funds, qualified leads, comprehensive training, proof-of-concept (POC) programs, and more.
The Volare Partner Program will be presented with its details during the webinar “How ubiquitous Wi-Fi demand is creating a new gold rush opportunity for Cloud4Wi partners” on August 30th. For more information, please visit our website here.
