Securing competitive edge in its marketplace

October 31, 2016: Purple, the intelligent spaces company, today announced that Nviron, an established provider of IT infrastructure, networking and security solutions, has become a fully Certified Purple Partner.

Nviron, based in Runcorn, Cheshire, prides itself in meeting its clients’ demand for availability, integrity and security.

To these and other clients, Nviron offers solutions to server, connectivity and security problems and provides the level of support needed to achieve consistently high levels of operational service.

Joining Purple as Certified Partner enables Nviron to introduce and deploy Purple technology via its Dell networking wireless go to market for W Series and Aerohive. Stuart Rae, Managing Director of Nviron, says, “We have a broad customer base and potential to grow exponentially. We see offering Purple analytics as a differentiator in our networking go to market, key to opening new business conversations. With Purple, we are now able to offer a fuller solution and we think this will be attractive to existing and new clients.”

Nviron identified Purple as an ideal partner following a recommendation and a compelling demonstration of the Purple platform. Once it was established that Purple’s solution could support both Dell W Series and Aerohive, the partnership was sealed.

Rae adds, “We’re looking forward to offering our clients access to all of Purple’s products. Wireless is increasingly important to our customer base. With Purple, we will be able to help our customers make full use of its potential. They will be able to gain valuable marketing insights, which will enable them to monetize their wireless investment.”

As a Certified Partner of Purple, Nviron will benefit from lead distribution, unlimited NFR licenses and full access to Purple’s partner resources, including online partner training and technical support. Nviron clients will be able to reap the benefits of Purple’s market leading social engagement, marketing tools and location analytics.

About Purple http://www.purple.AI Purple is an intelligent spaces company. It evolved from Purple WiFi, the cloud-based marketing and analytics WiFi software company, to take the lead in real-time analytics and marketing for venues and businesses that want to engage with visitors and understand the use of physical spaces. Purple refers to this process as ‘Intelligent Spaces’ and can help brands to learn more about their location, customer base and help them to take action. With 16 million users across 134 countries, Purple works with a range of brands and venues, including Indiana Pacers, Merlin Entertainment, Bloomin Brands, CenturyLink, Molson Coors, Legoland, Jaguar, United Wireless Arena, City of York and TUI. It has a global agreement in place with Westcon Comstor, in addition to an active reseller base of over 960 in 60 countries. Purple employs over 90 full time staff and currently has offices in the UK, US, Chile, Madrid, Singapore and Melbourne with more offices planned. Huge growth is being seen in all sectors, including hospitality, where people have time to spend online, retail, where footfall tracking is essential, healthcare, offering transparency around service and communication and entire cities moving towards the Internet of Things. Purple divides its offering into two specific segments: small businesses and enterprise customers. Small businesses can continue to take advantage of Purple’s free guest WiFi product and purchase a cloud software license, which allows open access to marketing and analytics tools. Enterprise customers have the option of four product lines: WiFi, Location, and two new offerings: Fusion and Provision. · Purple WiFi is the well-established guest WiFi, analytics and marketing product. · Purple Location is a location based services product that works to actually pinpoint devices, enable heat mapping, provide zone flow information and enable journey management. · Purple Fusion is the latest offering, enabling connection to any type of data source, which can then be analysed and actioned. A variety of different data sources will be utilised to harvest information about any physical space. · Purple Provision is a commercial product more suitable for businesses, enabling a completely secure guest and staff WiFi environment. This uses automatic certificate provisioning instead of WPA or other encrypted WiFi SSID’s, which are intrinsically insecure for a BYOD environment.
