Learn how b-connected Internet Cafe cut customer waiting time by over 50%

b_connected began as a small internet café with 30 PCs. It soon grew into five branches operating 300 PCs. As business expanded, weaknesses in their existing processes showed up. The paper passwords they used to assign PCs to customers were time-consuming to issue. Customers sometimes waited for 15 minutes. They needed a quick solution.
 
The Challenge

They had to develop a more efficient system to reduce response time and save on paper. In addition, many loyal clients were gamers, who wanted the best graphics experience possible.


The Solution

Microsoft Visual Basic was used to build a customised point-of-sale system. Windows 7 was chosen to offer better graphics and gaming applications, while Office 2010 allowed customers to work seamlessly on their documents.


"We invested in Microsoft early on because we needed to prioritise security and customer experience if we wanted the business to grow. Updated security tools from the Microsoft website keep our PCs safe from threats and eliminate IT downtimes."
