Wi-Q Editor’s Notes
Wi-Q is a revolutionary software company founded by a stakeholder group including multi-millionaire entrepreneur Graham Cornhill, who recognised a gap in the market to help shoppers with their purchases and ultimately put them at the heart of the sales process. The resulting technology, also called Wi-Q, has initially been aimed at the hospitality industry, but has the scope to be rolled out across any retail outlet, and is the world-leading integrated HTML software solution that is set to revolutionise the hospitality industry by placing the menu and ordering capability in the customers’ hands. Accessed via Wi-Fi or any mobile connection, rather than being a device- restrictive app, Wi-Q can be accessed using any mobile enabled device. The customer can select from the easy to update menu, place their order, make further purchases (think dessert or second cup of coffee), request a bill or pay for their order, all from the comfort of their seat, using their chosen device and without having to queue. Venues are seeing revenue uplifts averaging 15% within a month of implementing Wi-Q and trials and installations are taking place across the world in a diverse range of sectors from coffee shops to stadiums.
