San Francisco, Calif. – Dec. 3, 2014 – Connect Data, a leader in wireless technologies, has announced its partnership with Cloud4Wi Inc., an innovative cloud platform provider for managing and monetizing Wi-Fi services.

Cloud4Wi’s cloud platform allows venues to engage their customers and generate additional revenues over their Wi-Fi network by leveraging the customizable splash portal and powerful applications. Benefits of Cloud4Wi to venues are multiple – they can promote special offers to customers via the branded splash portal, provide easy-to-use applications to help customers enjoy their visits, utilize powerful marketing tools to retain and develop their customer bases, capture customer data via sophisticated analytics tools and spread their brand thanks to social Wi-Fi.

Dominique Renaudie, President of Connect Data commented, “We are excited about this new partnership with Cloud4Wi and to have the possibility to offer this unique, and innovative platform to our customers. Today, users require a Wi-Fi connection always available and stores need an easy-to-use platform to offer Wi-Fi to their customers, while being compensated for that. Cloud4Wi addresses this challenge through its customizable portal with powerful proximity marketing, advertising and analytics applications.

Gianni Altamura, VP International Sales of Cloud4Wi commented, “We all know that nowadays the Wi-Fi has become a basic commodity. Customers want to be able to connect anywhere and anytime. Moreover, they expect this kind of service for free. Therefore, venues need to adopt a solution that allow them to make the most out of their Wi-Fi service. In this way they will be able to address their customers’ needs and, on the other hand, they will be able to monetize the Wi-Fi service they are offering. We are thrilled to start with partnership with Connect Data. This partnership, thanks to Connect Data expertise, is a step forward on the expansion of Cloud4Wi on the French market, and the consolidation on our global expansion.
