Squash Club goes hi-tech
Columbus Business Solutions (CBS), the business arm of Columbus Telecommunications Barbados Limited, is bringing squash in Barbados into the age of technology and all its possibilities.
The Barbados Squash Club recently signed on with CBS to have the entire club Wi-Fi-enabled so that all patrons and players alike can have access to free super-fast internet.
Club president Paul McLeod expressed his gratitude to members of the CBS team at a recent presentation where he said that as a sports club operated by volunteers, having suppliers that could be relied upon was something to be cherished.
“So when the Barbados Squash Club was searching for an internet provider, not only did CBS have the business solution, they also delivered. Within 24 hours of deciding to go with CBS, the club was connected and able to stream video of live matches.”
He said that recently, the Caribbean Squash Championships were played at the club and people from around the world were able to watch live squash, all eight days of the tournament thanks to CBS.
Vice-president of CBS Jaggernauth Dass said: “CBS was proud to partner with the squash club given its positive influence on fitness and health which equates to a healthier community and a healthier Barbados. Squash and CBS are a natural synergy given that squash is a fast-moving high-impact sport and CBS delivers fast and reliable hi-tech business class solutions.”
Dass added that technology was advancing at an astounding rate and businesses and sporting facilities alike had to be equipped with the tools to support business functions and enhance customer experiences.
“We live in an age where service providers must either adapt or perish,” she said.
