7-Eleven Stores Selects Aerohive

06/11/2008
OKLAHOMA CITY -- 7-Eleven Stores installed Aerohive wireless LAN in its Oklahoma City corporate office and chain of convenience stores.

"Aerohive treated us like a partner with a common interest," Gayle Crouch, IT director for 7-Eleven Stores, said in a statement. "Combined with the cost, network management and security benefits the cooperative control architecture delivers, the outstanding service and professionalism of the Aerohive team sealed the deal for us."

Crouch explained the Aerohive solution was selected because of the solution' low cost, ease of network management, PCI security compliance and exceptional resiliency. The wireless LAN, he explained, enables 7-Eleven Stores to deploy a sophisticated inventory control system, saving the company a substantial amount of money.

Down the line, Crouch said 7-Eleven Stores may run additional applications on the Aerohive wireless LAN aside from inventory control system. Delivery truck
drivers, for example, may soon be equipped with handheld devices of their own, enabling them to log deliveries, print invoices, and perform other useful tasks using the network. The company's bakery and distribution drivers may be the next uses, he said.
