Westfield, one of the largest global real estate companies, manages all aspects of their retail portfolio—from shopping center design, construction and development, to leasing, management and marketing. To succeed in an extremely challenging retail environment, they needed to make their malls a true destination, offering gathering spaces, events, and entertainment. They partnered with Cisco for secure, end-to-end technology to power the digital experience.
"Westfield is in the entertainment business, much different than just leasing shops. To succeed, we needed to create memorable experiences, getting shoppers to come back again and again. Cisco technology gave us the framework to digitally delight our customers."Denise Taylor, CIO, Westfield Corporation
