March 27, 2017 — CAMPBELL, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE) – KodaCloud Inc., the first company to offer Wi-Fi as a cloud-powered subscription service with proactive network monitoring and troubleshooting using patented Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced that Northgate Markets has chosen KodaCloud’s service for its corporate office, distribution center and its stores.
Northgate Markets is a family owned grocery store business with 42 stores in California that are served by a 375,000-sq foot distribution center. KodaCloud is currently deploying and managing 190 K20 Indoor access points and 98 K60 outdoor access points, all powered by KodaCloud’s AI-powered cloud service.
“KodaCloud’s Wi-Fi service enables us to focus on our core competency which is to manage stores and distribute food and goods,” said Harrison Lewis, CIO with Northgate Markets. “With this service, we can easily monitor our many stores, distribution center and our corporate office, as one global network from anywhere and respond when KodaCloud alerts us to any issues which require human intervention.”
KodaCloud’s proactive network monitoring identifies and corrects tens of thousands of daily connectivity or performance issues. KodaCloud’s system makes on average over 80 percent corrections and issues network alerts to IT teams where human intervention is needed. The system improves average signal connectivity strength by 29dB and improves employee data rate connectivity by an average of 50 Mbps for each correction made.
