In Episode 6 of the Switched On Thinking Podcast, host Neil C Hughes is joined by NETGEAR’s Director of Product Line Management for Insight and Services, Shaheen Kazi and Regional Director of NETGEAR Benelux, Arend Karssies as they discuss how cloud managed networks can help your business to grow.
Meeting your customers’ needs is critical when it comes to growing your business. Today, customers of many different establishments where they are asked to wait for any amount of time now expect guest WiFi to be ready and available.
Shaheen talks at length on the show about the critical role this is playing, “We’ve seen a significant growth in the networking needs for small businesses … The expectation of the end consumer is that when they walk in, if they are asked to wait, the expectation is that there should be free WiFi provided by that business. So right away there is a need for small businesses to extend their wireless network to provide guest WiFi.”
On the show, Arend shares an example of how Cloud Management is allowing a VAR to assist a school, helping them with office management from home, e-learning practices and general preparation for the months to come.
“When the pandemic came, he was immediately able to start managing the offices at home, from the teachers who provided e-learning to the students. Because he was ready with remote-management capability, he fully embraced it.”
The pandemic has changed how we live, how we work and how we play but what does the future bring? This episode of the show covers the reality of the situation in great depth and highlights how Cloud Managed Networks can help us to find solutions.
