A few months ago, we asked our blog subscribers to submit stories of their experiences with Meraki cloud managed access points, switches, security appliances, and MDM. We wanted to hear how Meraki has helped advance the unique missions of our customers, and we received many fantastic submissions. We’d like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who took the time to write in!
One customer that we’ve worked with since then to craft a case study is E la Carte. Revolutionizing the future of Smart Dining™, E la Carte provides a comprehensive guest ordering and pay-at-table solution for restaurants across the nation, with customers such as Applebee’s, Johnny Rockets, and Outback Steakhouse.
“Think of us as a network within a network,” says Dan Smith, the Director of Operations and Information Security for E la Carte. Dan and his team deploy and manage nearly 100,000 wireless tablets to provide an advanced dining solution that securely connects to the point of sale system in each unique dining environment. This is where Meraki cloud managed access points and security appliances come into play.
With seamless wireless connectivity for the tablets, the security capabilities of a Meraki UTM device at each location, and a full stack of Meraki gear at headquarters, the E la Carte team has found efficiency gains in the ease now associated with onboarding new members, remote troubleshooting, and device configuration.
This post is meant to be merely a teaser – get the full scoop in the case study here.
Thank you again to everyone who submitted, and keep an eye out for more winners (and contests) in the future!
