Reliability of Cellular Connectivity - How could Robustel help Intercake ensure printers located in supermarkets across the UK with varying RF environments all worked flawlessly?
Qualifying Data Usage - How could Intercake use the data counting and analytical tools available inside all Robustel devices to manage airtime costs and prevent 'bill-shock'?
Capital Expenditure for Connectivity - How could Robustel work with Intercake to make sure they had a solution that was fit for purpose but not 'over-engineered' to ensure maximum return on a nationwide roll-out?
At the heart of Intercake’s solution is a Windows Embedded PC responsible for managing customer interactions and driving the local display for simple and clear customer interaction.
The PC requires internet access for both application data and for the use of Logmein for ad-hoc remote maintenance.
Due to the Intercake kiosk positioning, generally in the aisle of a supermarket, internet access has not always been easy and it was on this premise that Intercake engaged with Robustel to provide an aﬀordable and ﬂexible cellular internet connectivity solution.
