UCOPIA’s Vice President Central Europe, Frank Baurmann comments on the current success of his team: “Winning this project clearly shows that we are continuing on our road to success with our solutions and we were not only able to retain our current pole position but have even been able to develop it further together with our strong partner Signalhorn. UCOPIA’s solutions offer a diverse and secure registration portal to all companies who provide their customers or employees with WLAN. The solutions are scalable between 5 and 200,000 simultaneous users. Each user is addressed in their own language, and simple access procedures are available via social media logins, such as Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin. The user data can also be specifically used for digital marketing.
