Postnet

Skyrove and PostNet have partnered to provide wireless internet access at PostNet stores around South Africa. This will enable customers at the store to use their Wi-Fi enabled laptops, PDAs and mobile phones to access the internet on the move.

PostNet Southern Africa is the country’s largest privately-owned counter network in the document and parcel market, targeting mainly Small to Medium Enterprises. Each PostNet store is a Business Centre providing a range of innovative business solutions that now include Skyrove Wi-Fi internet access. PostNet personnel save their clients time by attending to their Connectivity, Courier, Digital, Document and Office Supplies needs, all in one easy stop.

Vishal Chaggan, head of digital communications at PostNet is excited about the collaboration saying, “We are always looking for ways to add value to our customers and mobile communication is very important to them. Skyrove enables these customers to conveniently create an account and connect to the internet wirelessly on their own devices.”

PostNet Southern Africa franchise-based business has over 200 Business Centres that can be found in every major city and larger town throughout South Africa. PostNet stores in the Western Cape have successfully been enabled with Skyrove hotspots and the roll-out will be continued in January 2008 with selected stores in Gauteng and Durban.

Tino Mueller, business development manager at Skyrove says “The PostNet Business Centres will add value to our hotspot network, where users can easily roam between high profile venues with a single prepaid account.”

GHASA Logo
Skyrove has entered a partnership with the Pinelands Accommodation Network (PAN). The organization that grades and organizes accommodations in Pinelands, Cape Town (SA) has realized that wireless internet access is not a service that should be exclusive to hotels. Most of the over 30 B&Bs and guesthouses are now offering wireless internet through Skyrove’s fully managed solution as a contemporary and value adding service to their guests.

Nicola Morris, owner of Pine Cottage B&B and member of Pinelands Accommodation Network raves: “Skyrove has proved a huge benefit to my business, allowing my guests internet access in the comfort of their rooms. It has also proved an asset to Pinelands Accommodation Network as guests can use Skyrove at lots of different establishments within our network keeping their remaining credit from one visit to use at their next.

Entrepreneur Magazine: Sky’s The Limit
