Cradlepoint spices up connectivity for Fuzzy's Taco Shop
Cradlepoint, a provider of cloud-based network solutions over wired and wireless broadband, is helping Fuzzy's Taco Shop ensure secure, reliable connectivity for its growing chain of restaurants, according to a press release from Cradlepoint.
The company's Advanced Edge Routers with Enterprise Cloud Manager enables Fuzzy's Taco Shop to securely manage each store's point-of-sale transactions, digital signage, VoIP and customer Wi-Fi from one centralized location for corporate and franchise locations.
"Being able to manage uptime and security across the entire network from a centralized location is vital for the growth that we are seeing. Before, when a store lost connectivity, it led to wasted time, lost money, security risks, and a lot of frustration," said Briton Smetzer, director of IT operations for Fuzzy's Taco Shop. "Cradlepoint lets us have one less thing on our plate to worry about. We're able to easily manage all of our network traffic and quickly push our firewall policies to each of our locations. That is a huge value to us."
With Cradlepoint deployed, the restaurant chain is able to offer 99.99 percent uptime for the first time to more than 100 locations over 11 states, reducing financial risk of fraudulent and declined credit card transactions and ensuring customer service remains fast, secure and efficient, the release said.
"Network downtime can be devastating to any business, especially for retailers and restaurants where success is dependent on quick customer turnovers and transactions. Cradlepoint is dedicated to helping these businesses, like Fuzzy's Taco Shop, ensure every location stays connected, data remains secure, and customers remain happy," said Ian Pennell, CMO for Cradlepoint. "Cradlepoint will continue to streamline enterprises' ability to leverage LTE to ensure their people, places, and things are securely connected and the business can drive forward uninterrupted."
