AirTight Networks has named a new A/NZ country manager and is hiring new staff as part of a major expansion into the A/NZ market.
The Cloud-managed Wi-Fi provider has appointed Carl Jefferys as A/NZ Country manager.
The announcement also coincides with the opening of a new Sydney office.
Jefferys said he saw AirTight as a company with unique differentiation in the competitive Wi-Fi technology space.
“Big data analytics and customer engagement imperatives are changing the business of WLANs, and AirTight is at the forefront of this technology inflection point,” he said. Jefferys said AirTight's massively scalable Cloud-based architecture, peerless capability in Wi-Fi security and widest range of social media tools were standout features.
"We have stock in Ingram’s warehouse, we have local engineering support and are shortly to announce our plans for New Zealand," he said. AirTight has clients in the retail, quick service and financial services industries globally.
Australian vertical markets, using AirTight's technology, include retail, financial services and hospitality.
The company has the industry’s largest global Cloud footprint, serving over 25,000 customer sites, according to a company statement.
AirTight chief executive, David King, said the company was a 100 per cent channel focused vendor.
"Carl brings years of experience and success within the channel community," he said.
"His record is second to none in growing, educating and supporting his partners,” said David King, AirTight Network's CEO.
