Daisy and Greene King Collaborate to create the Pub Network of the Future
We have helped Greene King deliver a transformative project that was all about providing an industry-leading guest experience and based on feedback from Greene King’s customers and staff it’s already a huge success.
Greene King’s vision was to create the ‘pub network of the future’ and we achieved this by delivering a complete refresh of their estate-wide connectivity, a state-of-the-art SD-WAN, a fully digital unified communications solution, and, most importantly, a LAN and WiFi transformation. This amounted to a more streamlined user experience that allows Greene King to gain a greater understanding of their customer wants and buying patterns.
The project included more than 1,600 of their sites, unifying the independent brands within the group with a quality foundation that still allows them to maintain their individuality.
- Complete 1,047 pub WiFi surveys
- Carry out 716 installation surveys
- Install full cabling in 478 pubs
- Deliver upgraded connectivity at 658 pubs, broken down as:
- 428 SOGEAs
- 187 ethernets
- 43 FTTPs
What’s next for us?
As with all of our customer engagements, we’ve learned some valuable lessons with this project, and it has given us a unique insights that have already led to discussions with other hospitality and retail customers about similar projects. into how to most effectively manage this scale of project, to optimise success.
And we’re about to embark on a networking programme with our long-term customer, Greggs, who have been powered by Daisy throughout their spectacular expansion. We’re proud to be associated with Greggs and Greene King, as both of these well-known brands are synonymous with quality, value for money and achievement.
What’s next for you?
With other providers, you might wonder, “what if the technology on offer is not what I want?” but with Daisy, our vendor relationships and solution-breadth mean that you are not limited to a single solution. Not only that, but we can establish one or more proof of concept sites to determine which technology elements combine to achieve the best-fit for you.
