Welcome Retail Hospitality

Welcome to Vodat International, Telecom Solutions for the Retail and Hospitality sector.

Providing telecommunications technology with applications and services, which include Wide Area Data Networks, IP Telephony, Calls & Lines, WiFi networks, PCI security solutions, EFT payment services, mobile marketing and audio & visual media; all supported by our exemplary pro-active management support.

Our differentiator is the experience and dedication that we apply, and the range of products and services developed specifically for the retail and now, Hospitality and Leisure sectors.


Vodat International’s proactively managed network is at the heart of the Vodat International communicating excellence solutions program. It is this enterprise strength network that is the bedrock for all the communications products and services, that make up our range of unified communications solutions for the retail sector.

The Vodat International Core Network is a secure private IP-VPN with multiple interconnections to the UK and international Telco networks. This enables us to provide lease lines, ethernet connections, ADSL2+, LLU, 3G, GPRS and WiFi connectivity. 
With our market leading proactive management service, which monitors your network 24 x 7 x 365 days, we deal with faults before you know you have one. If you don't believe us, ask our customers!

Calls & Lines packages deliver immediate savings year on year. Typically 30% savings can be made on phone calls, including mobile calls and 10% on line rentals.

When combined with our Retail Network, an additional 25% savings can be achieved on calls through SIP trunking.

IP Telephony - Our solutions are scalable, and address the needs of a retailer who requires phones with voicemail, hunt groups, conferencing facilities, wall boards, video conferencing, web chat with full reporting functionality, and full unified communication solutions, which deliver a seamless cross-channel experience with full call centre functionality.

WiFi - Through the means of WiFi, retailers are deploying wireless devices, mobile epos, PDQ's and tablets, to create a better customer experience. The Vodat WiFi network, powered by Meraki, provides a business class secure network which is self configuring, fully meshed, and is managed over the web. Retailers are able to deploy a WiFi solution across the entire estate quickly and cost effectively.

3G - The reliance of an 'always on' network in retail stores has never been so important. Retailers are either opting to have a backup ADSL (Broadband) connection, or for added resilience, a Vodat private 3G data network. By using Vodat's ADSL 3G router, which automatically fails over to 3G, retailers will never lose service.
