EarthLink Launches New Bundled Solution for Franchisees

Designed to help protect their brand and deliver a consistent guest experience

LAS VEGAS — MURTEC SHOW, Booth #22, March 19, 2015 — EarthLink Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:ELNK, news, filings) , a leading managed network and cloud solutions provider for multi-location businesses including hundreds of restaurants, has launched a new bundled franchise solution at the 2015 Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference (MURTEC). EarthLink developed the new solution after franchisors on its Retail Advisory Council shared their need for an all-inclusive offer that would protect their brand and customer experience while being easy to implement for their franchisees. The turnkey solution is designed for franchisees with limited IT resources, and enables them to secure their data, protect their brand assets and provide a consistent customer experience across all of their locations.

The bundle of services includes PCI compliant IP VPN service with managed router and firewall, PCI assessment tools and assistance , and $100,000 of financial breach protection per location. It also features Secure WiFi with rogue device detection and quarantine, a social media platform to connect guests to loyalty programs and drive a consistent customer experience, and an optional offer engine to generate increasing guest returns.

"Franchisors know that consistent execution and experience leads to higher customer loyalty and repeat business, but often lack the financial resources and technical savvy to tackle data security and brand protection across all locations," said Greg Griffiths, Vice President of Product Marketing, EarthLink. "Our new franchise solution cost-effectively alleviates that burden so that operators can easily access the technology, applications and security they need."
