BLACKBX shakes up global market with new Wi-Fi feature

Edinburgh disruptive tech firm develops software industry first 

BLACKBX, a disruptive tech company based in Edinburgh, has released its latest software feature – remote Wi-Fi integration without flashing.
In an industry first, the company’s pioneering software makes it possible to integrate remotely with millions of internet access points worldwide in minutes rather than hours. The new feature provides a seamless transition for venues, enabling them to run BLACKBX’s revolutionary Guest Wi-Fi with zero disruption, no new hardware and no site visits.
BLACKBX is disrupting the Wi-Fi sector and challenging its competitors by offering Guest Wi-Fi that’s easy to use, requires no engineers or IT experience to install. The software provides real time customer analytics, enabling owners to increase loyalty and generate revenue through targeted marketing and mailing lists. Unlike any other Wi-Fi, BLACKBX’s software is empowering even small business owners to harness the power of data and analytics.
Patrick Clover, Founder of BLACKBX, said: “We are the first company to offer venues the ability to integrate Wi-Fi software into existing access points. It’s set up and configured remotely in minutes using cloud technology from our base in Scotland. This saves time and costs for both parties. Pilots have been successfully completed in the UK and on multiple sites in the US. Our new integration technology will enable us to grow our international presence and compete with multinational Wi-Fi providers.”
Businesses and venues using BLACKBX’s Wi-Fi software typically experience an increase in users and customer engagement from day one, according to the firm which says venues are able to grow mailing lists quickly and gain vital insights into customer behaviour.
