Lookers plc., the major car retailer and distributor were looking for a best in class solution for an upgrade of their existing workshop and showroom WLAN infrastructure to meet the growing demands on the Wi-Fi within the connected business, providing staff mobility and a better customer experience.
The enhanced multi-sited WIFI coverage implemented internally and externally allows Lookers the capacity to provide connectivity for both customers and employees, which has improved their productivity, enhanced the customer experience on their showrooms and consequently increased sales revenue due to the implementation of mobile interactive tools to influence purchase.
Initial Wi-Fi Audit & Surveys led to the creation of a program of works for the refurbishment of their existing nationwide estate to include remedial works to the infrastructure as well as a the installation extra APs to provide better coverage. As well as the refurbishment of their existing estate ISG has an ongoing undertaking for the deployment of new WLAN solutions into Lookers’ new build sites.
