Accents, a local indie fashion retail store, selected BEC’s, MX-200e, WWAN Failover Manager LTE router, and its Multi-WAN failover connectivity solution created a secure, continuous, and dependable network connection. With this new, less disruptive network, Accents has minimized its revenue loss significantly.
Accents is a popular retail shop featuring styles that cater to the fashion-centric women of the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. Founded in 2006 with its first location in Dallas, Texas, the brand opened its second brick-and-mortar shop in 2013 in Southlake, Texas, while maintaining an online presence. Accents feature a blend of local and popular indie brands that are sure to add flare to any North Texan’s wardrobe.
With fewer people carrying cash, a break in connectivity can cause the store to refuse revenue or take card payments against PCI compliance. Charging a card without authorization can open a store to security risks, fraud, and other vulnerabilities. Security and loss of revenue are not the only concerns caused by a connection malfunction. Frustrated customers can take to social media, causing lasting damage to your brand’s reputation.
Besides all the challenges above, North Texas’ unpredictable weather has caused numerous connectivity interruptions in the past year. In order to maintain a growing business, Accents decided to look into business continuity options.
