“The big data market is expected to grow from $28.65 billion in 2016 to $66.79 billion by 2021”
Wi-Q Technologies affords multiple revenue generating benefits; one of which is the unrivalled big data opportunities that it creates beyond existing management information currently available. By taking control of the complete customer journey, our software can generate data intelligence that has the potential to change how a business, or even industry, is run.
Data has been deemed the new oil; it’s one of the world’s most valuable commodities. In fact, its value has been recognised beyond that of oil. As Piero Scaruffi, cognitive scientist and author of “History of Silicon Valley”, 2016, pointed out: “The difference between oil and data is that the product of oil does not generate more oil, whereas the product of data will generate more data.”
Wi-Q Technologies’ ability to capture customer data puts us and our investors in an enviable position within a booming market. It offers our clients opportunities to exploit new information that can deepen their understanding of customers, identify profitable customer segments and help attract new business.

“Technology that can communicate with, and wrap around existing systems and applications is a highly valuable asset”
Integration with existing software providers is key to our success. Through our beachhead strategy, we discovered the need to deliver a ‘whole product’ solution to key markets in order to fully facilitate its implementation. Diligence in our research, understanding of the market and software development has ensured that we can deploy Wi-Q Technologies with a ‘hit the ground running’ approach, with minimal disruption to our clients’ existing business operations. This has led to integration with world-leading software providers, beyond the capabilities of any other mobile ordering solution in the market.
Wi-Q Technologies’ software can operate as a standalone service or wrap around existing functions, such as apps and websites, as well as integrate with EPoS systems and payment providers. Through a simple API feed, the software can also integrate with incumbent business systems, connecting our clients with external services.
We have developed a ubiquitous solution with a universal front end. This makes our software fully scalable, whether it’s being implemented across a small hotel chain or an international establishment with hundreds of sites. Our solution allows for rapid deployment and offers real-time updates to ensure its functionality evolves in line with our clients’ businesses.
