Acer providing key service for Olympic and Paralympic athletes
The Olympics is almost upon us, and as the athletes’ villages open, Acer is ready to provide key service for athletes: the internet lounges.
Located at Stratford, Weymouth and Egham athletes’ villages, the Acer Internet Lounges provide athletes with fully-equipped computing stations offering broadband Internet access, printer capabilities and social networking applications, available 24/7 during both Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The main lounge will be located at the Stratford Athletes Village and offer free access with 130 computers: 65 fixed stations powered by the Acer Z3801 all-in-one desktop and several portable devices: Acer S3 ultrabooks and Acer ICONIA A510 tablets.
Acer extended its service to the villages of Egham and Weymouth offering facilities equipped with 10 fully equipped computing stations.
Cool and relaxing, the Acer Internet Lounges offer a welcoming and comfortable environment where athletes can unwind and catch up with friends and family. Acer’s on-site staff and service technicians provide customer support and solve technical issues.
By delivering a welcoming, accessible and comfortable environment to both Olympic and Paralympic athletes, Acer will provide the athletes an essential and priceless service, keeping them up to date with the things that matter the most and in touch with the people they love.
Acer also offers a similar service for media organizations. Within the Main Press Center (MPC), located in the Olympic park, a lounge is equipped with 50 workstations. The Internet Lounge opened on June 27th and will offer 24/7 operation during the Games. The Main Press Center will be bubbling with journalists and members of the media telling the world the extraordinary achievements of the athletes. Acer will be at their side, helping them to perform to the best.
