Tomizone (ASX:TOM) says that in the months preceding the new contract, 180,000 monthly free WiFi sessions were recorded and that number is expected to grow with increased capacity and footfall at the venue.
Christchurch Airport is New Zealand’s second largest airport and the gateway to the South Island, with six million passengers travelling in and out of the airport annually.
Tomizone CEO, Steve Simms reinforced the importance of the transport market vertical to deliver against Tomizone’s international growth strategy saying, “A continued focus for the company is expanding our footprint in core market verticals including transport and today’s announcement further solidifies our position as a dominant market player in the WiFi software industry.
Simms said, for Christchurch Airport, the partnership with Tomizone will create important digital connections with consumers and “unlock insight and analytics through in-venue digital experiences offered through its cloud-hosted Lightswitch software platform, complementing the airport company’s objectives to deliver content through the WiFi service.”
Todd Cassie, airport Manager of Knowledge and Information technology at Christchurch Airport, said implementing Tomizone across the terminals “proved to be an excellent success prior to entering this new contract and now the next stage of our relationship gives us access to greater capability to engage with our customers.
“Our users love the ease of getting Internet access and we see this as a vital tool as a leading tourism gateway. The WiFi experience enhances our position significantly with consumers and the analytics allows us to better understand them.”
