Easily create Free HotSpot and configure Internet access limits
Antamedia HotSpot software helps you offer Free WiFi access, efficiently manage and control it, and even make profit using:
Set up Free HotSpot using your own Windows based computer, configure your branding, create extra profits. No compromises.
Combine Free Trial Use with Paid Faster Access
HotSpot Billing software helps you offer free trial Internet access and convert your customers into paid subscribers. Entire process is automated, and follows the rules you specify: duration of the free trial, number of logins per day, available bandwidth quota, download and upload rate, time of day when free access is available, and much more. Once the customer is satisfied, he can sign-up for the higher level account without restrictions.
Ability to offer paid upgrade is very important, as business users or those needing video streaming will not be satisfied with your free-level service. On contrary, users needing only simple services as browsing or Email access would appreciate a free offer, and be loyal to your main services.
How Free HotSpot Works:
Upon accessing your hotspot, customer is automatically redirected to your self-branded Hotspot page. To get the Internet access, customer may click a start button, enter a shared keyword or sign-up for a free account.
Free Hotspot will control the duration, speed and bandwidth, and optionally collect your customers e-mail, name, address, for your safety and marketing activity.
You may decide to charge for higher level access to your network. HotSpot will help you accept credit cards, PayPal, vouchers tickets, refills, or post charges to the guest Hotel room. Entire profit is 100% yours.
Create Pre-Paid Voucher Tickets Without Extra Monthly Fees
Design and print voucher tickets by yourself, and distribute them on your selling points. There is no revenue sharing with Antamedia or ongoing cost for vouchers. You keep all profit.
Antamedia HotSpot offers different templates for voucher tickets and each template can be customized to include your logo, contact details, access code, access parameters and limits, cost of the ticket. Tickets can be printed when needed, or in advance, for example 100 tickets printed and distributed to various sales locations.
Limit speed to prevent losing your customers
Failing to set a bandwidth cap, leads to nonfunctional WiFi HotSpot. If data transfer is not controlled and limited, some customers may consume all your bandwidth, and leave other customers unable to connect or have decent browsing experience. Antamedia HotSpot efficiently limits both download and upload rate for each customer connected to your network. But that’s just a starting point. To gain full control over the customer connection, you can limit bandwidth quota (maximum data transfer), or set limits on a daily level. For example, each customer can get 1GB data transfer, but only 10 MB daily.
Why is this so important for you ? With massive iPad sales, number of customers equipped with this device is on the exponential increase. Apple’s iPad is very suitable for video materials that consume a lot of bandwidth. An average iPad user consumes several times more bandwidth than the average Laptop user. A global trend shows that an average Internet session requires 250MB and this number is increasing. Now imagine all your customers connected with iPads or streaming video materials from other devices. The result will be uncontrolled data transfer for some customers, while other may not be even able to get the emails. Finally, customers with a bad Internet experience may look for a better service and go to your competition. Solution is easy & flexible Antamedia HotSpot software that takes care over your Hotel WiFi Internet, and helps you never lose a customer.
Track visited pages to comply with law
According to the anti-terrorism Pisanu Law and EU DIRECTIVE 2006/24/EC, each Internet Service Provider (in this case YOU), are required to store customer details, and to track Internet user activity by storing visited URLs into the log. Offering Free Hotel WiFi without tracking URLs and collecting customer data imposes you to a risk from illegal customer activity that is performed from your Internet connection.
Advanced features that help with Hotel WiFi management:
1. Prevent illegal customer activity and protect your business
2. Filter URLs with inappropriate content, like porn, racism, drugs
3. Block desired websites
4. Redirect websites to another URL (even your competition)
