Leisure & Entertainment
Leisure and entertainment companies invariably operate in the business-to-consumer space and face significant challenges relating to seasonality. The sites themselves often feature temporary workers and constant evolution during the year as they look to get customers through the door in all seasons. Security of both information and the sites themselves is hugely important as these companies owe a duty of care to the public. Many face compliance issues in their day-to-day operations. Harnessing technology to generate new revenue streams and to ensure repeat business has become a must-do activity.
Six Degrees Group can help leisure and entertainment organisations in a variety of ways. Our connectivity and datacentre offerings can power IP television, digital signage and IP CCTV to allow centralised and remote management of sites and tools that can be used for marketing or revenue generation. Change management processes help with the constant flow of people, information and staff, meaning that companies can deliver consistent levels of service despite frequent changes of shifts and personnel.
The “burstability” associated with our converged services helps leisure and entertainment companies to handle peaks and troughs more elegantly. Capacity can be added for busy months or for special events and reduced again when no longer needed. The native flexibility of our private cloud provides the same burstability advantages to information storage and application management. Our BYOD solutions can be extended not just to staff but also to visitors, over mobile or wireless networks, allowing information to be pushed to remote devices and access to certain sites to be managed and controlled, whilst not taking Internet or WAN bandwidth away from mission-critical applications. We would welcome a more detailed conversation with companies in this sector who are keen to explore new services for themselves and their visitor and new revenue opportunities for their customers.
