Since its inception in 2015, Wireless Social has quickly become the industry standard across the hospitality industry, looking after 3,500 venues’ guest Wi-Fi and is used by 1 million new Wi-Fi users every month.

Wireless Social specialise in guest Wi-Fi and analytics for hospitality venues, providing operators with actionable insight, collected from Wi-Fi social media logins, and by tracking customer behaviour in terms of visits, frequency, recency, dwell times, and ongoing loyalty. This enables operators to segment and target their marketing communications more effectively.

They work with many of the leading hospitality and leisure operators, including Ask Italian, Itsu, Carluccio’s, TGI Fridays, Frankie and Benny’s, Leon, HEINEKEN, and Pho to name a few.

They integrate with over 50 leading hospitality CRM, marketing, and SCV platforms so that data can be seamlessly transferred and reported on across all of the Operator’s platforms. One of the more popular integrations includes the ability to build audiences in Facebook for brands to target existing customers with relevant ads, or to extend the campaign with ‘lookalikes’ to increase the reach.

The guest data collected from the Wi-Fi service is now widely recognised as the best source of GDPR compliant data.

Wireless Social have also just launched an exciting new product called ‘Hedgehog’ which gives drinks brands the ability to send free drinks vouchers to guests as soon as they log into the Wi-Fi, to be redeemed at the till. The venue receives the full price of the free drink, and the brand gets their drink into the hands of their perfect target audience.
