Strategic Restaurants Inc. Provides Diners with Internet Access Using MegaPath's Managed WiFi HotSpots Service
National Burger King Chain Also Relies on the Company's MPLS and Managed Security Services to Access Corporate Applications and Remain PCI Compliant
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 23, 2011 -- MegaPath Inc., one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced that Strategic Restaurants Acquisition Corp. Holdings, Inc., a customer since 2008, is now rolling out the company's Managed WiFi HotSpots in key locations to provide public Internet access to its customers. Strategic Restaurants also uses MegaPath's private MPLS network and Managed Security Service in all of its 280 Burger King restaurants located throughout the country.
"Whether it's reading the news, catching-up on corporate email or updating their social media sites, people today want to stay connected when they are away from home or the office," said David Knutson, Director of IS, Strategic Restaurants. "Now, with MegaPath's Managed WiFi HotSpots, we are giving our customers a way to be both productive and social at the same time when they dine in one of our restaurants. Adding this offering was a natural extension of our existing relationship with the Company as they currently provide our MPLS VPN and Managed Security Services. Overall, MegaPath has greatly improved how we operate our business and provide value-add services to our customers."
In 2008, Strategic Restaurants implemented MegaPath's PCI-compliant MPLS VPN network to improve performance and reduce costs. By moving from satellite to a fully-managed broadband and managed security service, Strategic Restaurants has more bandwidth to run applications such as inventory and sales figures, as well as processing credit card information that are vital to the daily operations of their business.
"There is nothing more satisfying than continuing to provide customers such as Strategic Restaurants with new ways to deliver value to their patrons," said Bruce Chatterley, President of Business Markets, MegaPath. "For ten years, MegaPath's MPLS network has been an ideal solution for the unique needs of restaurants and other businesses that require secure payment processing and run inventory management applications. Our solutions grow as our customers' needs change, which enables them to stay connected, communicating and compliant."
