Managed Solutions for Franchises and Brands

Maintain brand and franchise standards and security at every customer and employee interaction with Hughes as your networking partner.


In the competitive franchise marketplace, success often hinges on a consistent customer experience, employee experience and brand experience across locations. Supporting the brand properly requires a consistent and reliable network from a Managed Service Provider (MSP) at every site. Core internet connectivity capabilities can make or break Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, store applications, back-office applications (such as real-time inventory), Wi-Fi service. cybersecurity, and network and data security, among other business processes. Compounded by a variety of internet connections (cable, fiber, DSL) and local providers at different locations, ensuring a consistent digital infrastructure site-by-site and maintaining trust between franchisors and franchisees can be a challenge.
