Case Study Overview

Connectivity at PizzaExpress UAE restaurants was inconsistent and patchy coverage led to complaints from customers, which placed an unwanted burden on service staff.

The group wanted to improve the provision of free WiFi in its restaurants to enhance customer experience and gain behavioural data that would drive new loyalty programmes.

CDW designed and implemented a fully integrated solution including a Cisco Meraki wireless infrastructure and Purple WiFi software, as well as a migration to Microsoft Office 365 to support management productivity.

The provision of fast, free and secure WiFi, along with the targeted promotions that are now possible, generated significant increases in business revenue.

"The key differentiator that CDW brought in this market was an effective turnkey solution which was delivered as an end-to-end solution. The support provided by CDW was outstanding and ensured that the Senior Management team at PizzaExpress could continue to focus on what is next for the business."
