Wi-Fi Solutions for the Travel and Transportation Industry
Today's traveller is as cost-conscious as they are connected. The business or leisure traveller finds themselves in the most extreme of "out of home" environments. In locations such as airports, rail stations and boat terminals, travellers are very often outside of their home networks for telecommunications. Whether using a laptop or a SmartPhone, consumers today are looking for easy, fast and free Internet access to check email, conduct business or update their Facebook page.
free-hotspot.com's Wi-Fi service is ideally suited for Airport locations. Our "free-hotspot.com" solution offers passengers and visitors an easy way to get online at no cost, even while they are far from their home network, and without the hassle of logging in though a roaming account or paying for access via credit card.
For mobile users, with iPhones or SmartPhones, we offer a simple "one-click" access to their emails and social networking sites. Our WMS system also offers airport operators the ability to generate revenue through advertising delivered to the users of the Wi-Fi system; additionally, passenger surveys and specialised communications by airlines and other stakeholders can be delivered over the Wi-Fi, and even "electronic boarding cards" and other travel documents can be downloaded by passengers through the Wi-Fi system.
All of the WMS Messaging activity can be localised and targeted to different areas of the airport, so that the WMS messages are tailored to passengers arriving or departing, in transit, shopping, etc.
Rail stations are ideal venues for free Wi-Fi. The people frequenting rail stations are business and leisure travellers as well as commuters - all of whom can benefit from having free Internet access.
Heuston Station, Dublin
As in airports, our Wi-Fi system can be used by existing advertisers as well as the rail authority and its stakeholders to issue Public Service Announcements, or even to transmit electronic tickets to passengers with mobile devices. Additionally, the unique aspects of train travel mean that important commuter information such as connections, track numbers, timetable updates and other data can be transmitted directly to passengers in transit or at the start or end of their rail journey.
Ferry and Boat Terminals
Ferry and boat passengers are often subjected to significant "dwell time" as they await their sailing, expecially if they are bringing an automobile on board. This time can be used constructively on the Internet, and passengers can also benefit from timetable information as well as shopping, dining and other on-board offerings while they wait.
