innovaphone in practise: Lyoness International AG

The Austrian company Lyoness is an international, cross-industry purchasing group and loyalty programme for the trade sector. Founded in 2003, the company is expanding rapidly and now operates across the globe, with 550 employees supporting about 2 million members. A new telephone system was supposed to easily keep pace with company growth as well as the widely spread branch network – requirements that make the innovaphone PBX the ideal choice due to its almost unlimited scalability and sophisticated site concept. (…)

Like many companies on a strong growth course, just a few years after being founded Lyoness was facing a real proliferation of completely different telephone systems from various vendors. In addition to that, support terms and functionalities varied greatly from site to site. (…)

Today, innovaphone systems are already being used at more than 30 sites across all continents. Smaller branches run the PBX on the innovaphone IP800, while larger branches use IP6000 VoIP gateways. In-house technicians have taken over the maintenance of all systems, guaranteeing rapid reaction times and uniform standards. The number of subscribers per site varies greatly, ranging between 5 and 120 connections. (…)

Lyoness is using the innovaphone PBX Operator, a computer-based switchboard for the innovaphone PBX. The operator can access the innovaphone PBX’s wait loop and forward calls anywhere – also across several sites. Some CTI applications are used via Outlook as well as a connection to videoconferencing systems; there are plans to implement and provide staff with more comprehensive features. (…)
