In recognition of National Small Business Week (April 28-May 4), BEK Communications Cooperative announces the launch of BEK SmartBiz, a new purpose-built solution for small businesses. BEK SmartBiz moves beyond connectivity and provides an all-in-one managed Wi-Fi experience and a new way for business owners to drive productivity by managing staff and business systems such as point-of-sale, secure their network, deliver Guest Wi-Fi to customers, and easily manage it all with an app. To learn more, visit BEK Buzz.

“BEK SmartBiz offers small businesses, like cozy coffee shops, an affordable PCI-compliant network for credit card transactions and a separate customer network with a captive portal,” says Isaac Gross, BEK Technology and Network Support Engineer. “I think the biggest game-changer with BEK SmartBiz is its ability to offer peace of mind to small business owners. If problems arise with the network, BEK SmartBiz will be able to withstand them and recover quickly. Users will even be able to use their phone's hotspot as a backup connection, ensuring uninterrupted card payments, even during peak times.”

Features and benefits of BEK SmartBiz include:

  • Seamless wired and wireless internet coverage throughout the business
  • Business-grade network security for the point-of-sale, staff, and business networks
  • Safe and secure customer Wi-Fi with a branded customer portal
