CellhireConnect - Events
CellhireConnect secure mobile data enables restaurateurs to process credit card payments and QR code ordering at Food Festival.
Merchants operating their business in park festival grounds and require secure, mobile and reliable internet access. This network access is used for employees to support booth purchases and web offers not available at the event. For short term events like these, terrestrial networks are not available and long term contracted service is not economical for a single weekend event.
CellhireConnect provides these clients with Mobile hotspot devices which operate with or without AC power as the units are outfitted with an extended Lithium-Ion battery. 165 booths opted for a rental iPhone with a high-speed data plan so that they would have a second source available to take twice as many credit card payments to help control the speed of long lines at the festival.
Booth attendees who rented the devices reported back that they experienced on average a 41% increase in sales as a result of online credit card processing. Normal cash transactions were down nearly 84% based on year-on-year transaction data. Overall, the overwhelming feedback was that this was an excellent program to allow merchants to increase their overall number of transactions with the ability to collect customer data to improve their newsletter/discount sign-up at the festival.
