Valvoline Oil Change Locations Use Cellular for Hybrid WAN and Service with a Last Mile

October 6, 2021

At franchise stores, Henley Enterprises uses Cradlepoint’s all-in-one routers for centrally managed connection reliability

Challenge — The hundreds of digitally transformed Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations run by franchisee Henley Enterprises simply can’t function without wide-area network (WAN) connectivity — and outages were occurring too often for comfort. Downtime cripples essential functions such as the ability to accept credit card payments, and Henley was looking for ways to avoid relying solely on wired broadband.

Solution — In each of its locations, Henley Enterprises uses Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for Branch and enterprise-class wireless edge routers. These all-in-one hybrid WAN routers support cellular and wired broadband and include Wi-Fi, a firewall, and extensive cloud-based network and security management features and integrations.

Benefits — This solution featuring multi-WAN flexibility with built-in LTE has helped Henley Enterprises squelch network downtime and streamline IT operations across its considerable footprint of Valvoline service centers — creating marked cost savings and new efficiencies while bolstering the customer experience.
