Tomizone takes over Aussie banks

Tomizone, the managed WiFi services provider headquartered in Auckland, is rolling out its services to 200 more bank retail branches throughout Australia.

Recently, the company signed a contract expansion with one of Australasia’s biggest banks to expand the WiFi capabilities for its Australian retail branches.

Following a successful phase one rollout, which saw Tomizone power WiFi in 50 of the bank’s retail branches across the country, the deal was expanded to an additional 200 branches.

Tomizone’s software and hardware solution can be deployed, tested and signed off within an hour of arrival on site - this will be critical in executing a cost-effective rollout, says the company.

The rollout has already commenced and has a completion deadline of one to two months.

Steve Simms, Tomizone CEO, says, “The solution we have been able to provide the bank demonstrates the scalability and ease with which we can quickly deploy a countrywide retail WiFi network within such a short time frame.

“The large-scale deployment of our services for the bank further solidifies our penetration into the retail chain market vertical.”

The contract will bring Tomizone’s Chauffeur gateway, which is run through its cloud-hosted Lightswitch software platform, to the bank’s hundreds of thousands of customers.

An important requirement for the bank’s network is to ensure that they remain secure and that the guest WiFi is isolated from the core banking network.

Analytics from the phase one rollout revealed a high rate of engagement with users downloading the on-line banking application compared to non-WiFi branches.

Tomizone also has a proven record delivering systems that are highly reliable (99.9% uptime) and engaging with an average dwell time exceeding 10 mins.

In addition to the signing of Christchurch Airport last month, this bank contract further delivers on Tomizone’s business objectives as outlined in its 2015 Annual Report – namely to continue to close deals in its sales pipeline and grow into multiple market verticals.

The company is in various stages of discussions with other major retail chains across the target markets in Australasia, USA and Asia.
