PCC was approached by Fairfax Media to provide a wifi hotspot at the Sydney & Melbourne Night Noodle Markets.
Over a two week period more than 250,000 people visit an Asian Hawker Style Market set up by the cities best restaurants. With all the colour, sounds and smells of an Asian hawker market plus the buzz, hype and vibe of a huge outdoor festival, the Night Noodle Markets was a huge hit at both Hyde Park in Sydney and Birrarung Marr in Melbourne.
Fairfax Media contacted PCC to provide visitors to the two venues with a wifi portal that would give clients access to high speed internet as well as enable organisers the ability to capture key information about their clients such as name, email and postcode.
To generate interest and ensure people used the service on offer Fairfax advertised a competition, enticing people to log on. PCC’s program allowed event organisers to access valuable information such as the time of day and access points joined to determine information about the number of visitors and what areas of the event they were in.
A cloud based management system allowed PCC to remotely monitor the event avoiding onsite labour costs. The cloud server also generated the database that stored the patron information allowing clients to access the data from there office without needing to be onsite.
The installation was completed in 4 hours however many hours were spent customising the captive portal and user interface.
