Arena Flowers turns to Comms365 for wireless broadband

Arena Flowers, an online florist and gift retailer, selected Comms365 to provide it with a reliable and fast wireless internet connection to its temporary warehouse, during its peak season in 2018.

Based in Milton Keynes, Arena Flowers has been providing floral arrangements for more than 12 years. While its operations are high volume and 24/7, for several months that encompass Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, its order volumes increase ten-fold. During this peak time, the company must lease additional warehouses to fulfil the increased throughput. This extra space is often required at relatively short notice and the availability of a reliable internet connection varies from site to site. A high-speed reliable internet connection is crucial to the success of Arena Flower’s operation. As orders are processed, it is required to keep track of packages as they progress through the system. The business also does a lot of printing on site, with each package containing a card, packing information and a courier label, as well as offering personalisation for their products.

The warehouse space that was available for last year’s seasonal peak did not come with an internet connection and the timescale mean that fixed line services couldn’t be installed at the site in time. A site survey showed that there was good 4G signal at the site and Arena Flowers approached Comms365 to provide wireless broadband connectivity throughout the site, in time for orders to be processed.
