wi-fi capture

Are you looking for a more efficient way to engage with your customers? If so, using Wi-Fi capture marketing is the way forward.

The idea is simple, by providing your customers with free wireless internet access, you’ll have a channel through which to communicate messages and offers. Wi-Fi capture is also an invaluable tool for capturing all sorts of data from demographics to behaviours which, in turn, provides you with the tools to increase customer engagement and sales.

We want to take this opportunity to introduce you to the edirect Box – the guest Wi-Fi capture solution that will change the way you market to your customers. This is a great way for you to increase engagement while better understanding the purchasing habits of those who frequent your business. Knowledge is power, and with our competitively-priced Wi-Fi capture service, you’ll always be in the right position to make informed decisions.

how does wi-fi capture work?

Wi-Fi capture provides customers with GDPR compliant Wi-Fi access. All you need to do is connect your supplied edirect Box to your existing router, and your guest environment will be live in a matter of minutes. As customers connect, they are granted access to the internet, thereby, saving them money on data costs. In turn, they provide consent for their data to be captured.


Any stored data can be quickly analysed in order to identify popular trends. You’ll be able to get a better understanding of exactly what is going on in your business, how often someone visits your business, the demographical breakdown of your customers and more. Map out your day-to-day traffic and understand who visits your business, why and when. Analytics allows you to:

  • Collect Exportable Marketing Lists Automatically
  • Visualise Metrics on Busiest Times
  • Identify the Demographics That Your Business Appeals to Most
  • Compare and Separate Multiple Locations at Once

social media

By using Wi-Fi capture, you can also increase the number of likes and followers you receive through Facebook and Twitter respectively. Customers are encouraged to like or follow you as part of the sign-up journey making this a great tool for driving social engagement and growth.


The beauty of Wi-Fi capture is that it can be entirely automated. For instance, you can persuade more of your happy customers to leave behind positive reviews with a scheduled email that can be sent following their visit. Plus, with automated marketing add-ons, using the data collected to target the right customers can be handled without your input. Our team designs all your marketing materials in-house ensuring consistency across the board.

At edirect, we provide a range of automation services, including:

  • Unlimited Emails Designed and Sent
  • Easy-to-Use Interface
  • Promotional Newsletters Sent to Your Customers
  • Event-Driven Email Marketing Automated by Us
