Wavelink brings retailers an edge in managing inventory, adjusting prices, increasing efficiency and boosting the bottom line with device management solutions like Avalanche. We keep your business moving and secure regardless of locations and mobile asset types, such as wireless access points, switches, handhelds, tablet PCs, smartphones and more. By bringing your devices and infrastructure under management, companies can automate changes and receive alerts that cover device failures, equipment updates and unwanted intrusions. By managing all of your devices and peripherals from around the globe in one centralized location, companies achieve increased efficiency and a greater return on investment.
With a strong focus on keeping retail operations secure, Wavelink provides tough security features that ensure companies keep data safe and meet PCI and Sarbanes-Oxley regulations. In 2009, the estimated cost of a data breach was near 6.75 million dollars. The strongest and most flexible wireless LAN security solutions, such as Avalanche, let legacy equipment exist alongside new-generation devices and use management systems that support today’s toughest standards: WPA2, AES encryption, 802.11 and more. The key to success is integrated network management tools that support those standards—all the way to the mobile device—and gives your IT staff visibility and control across the enterprise. With Wavelink, administrators can restrict access to device applications and data as well as guard against the compromise of sensitive data when a device is lost or stolen. Administrators can even track a device location using Device Location Mapping and zoom in to the exact street level of a device. This provides a pinpoint location, as well as other important information like the current latitude, longitude, heading and speed of the device, and even a location history (breadcrumbs).
When you bring Wavelink’s device management to your retail operations today, you are not only immediately up and running with a device right out of the box, but you’ll save up to 60% a year by reducing wireless costs, improving productivity and ensuring strong security across the network. Additionally, retailers can also see dramatic reduction in inventory errors and training costs by leveraging voice-enabled applications to both stockroom and customer-side assignments. By voice-enabling tasks such as monthly inventory counts, product and display placement, price checks and more, companies further streamline the retail environment.
Wavelink offers the industry’s most widely used set of development and connectivity tools that accelerate the deployment of commercial-grade wireless applications for retail operations, such as inventory control, training, replenishment and more.
