innovaphone IP232 - red dot design award 2012

And another innovaphone year has passed! We closed our financial year 2011/12 on 30 June 2012, again with record results, and we are proud to announce continued double-digit growth.


Two factors in particular have contributed to this positive result:  on the one hand, the consequent expansion of our marketing and sales activities in our European neighbouring countries; and on the other hand, increased investment in Research and Development. We have increased expenses in these two divisions by 20 percent year on year, which has proven its worth. France, Italy, Norway and Sweden have seen double-digit growth and we are over the moon with these record sales. Our design telephones IP222 and IP232, which were presented at CeBIT 2011, have not only been awarded the red dot design award but have obviously also struck a nerve amongst our customers - we have never sold as many telephones!


The innovaphone team has also grown and, also in the future, we will still be looking for further support in the areas of Development and Sales. The same goes for our partner network: we were able to welcome 40 new innovaphone Authorized Resellers (iAR) In the past 12 months alone. 


All of this tailwind means we are totally looking forward to the new financial year in which there is all the more reason to celebrate. 15 years of innovaphone! We will be full of drive throughout our anniversary year. We intend to extend our design telephone range with further elegant and highly modern models that will also be fitted out with Unified Communications applications. The excitement continues :-)

innovaphone in practise: Caledonian Sky

 A case study from our Swedish partner, COBS AG.

innovaphone - COBS - Caledonian Sky

The cruise ship Caledonian Sky which will operate between Asia and America recently left Gothenburg harbour after an extensive refit, among other things the telephony system is now replaced and improved. MNC Marine helped out and they chose to install an innovaphone system from COBS. (…)


Patrick Sjöberg, MD on MNC Marine is satisfied with the choice of business partner, ”The products from COBS meet all of our demands, and thanks to their short lead times, we could quickly get the installation done, which in this case was extremely important since the ship was in port only for a short time." 


The ship uses satellite communication for all incoming and outgoing calls, and they have chosen to use the IP800 Gateway as a base and IP adapters for analogue connections. Which phone to install was no hard decision to make! The IP222 and IP232 are the latest models from innovaphone, with their award winning design they nicely fit into the classy and luxurious environment on board. (…)


One of the main advantages with the solutions from innovaphone is that they are easy to install and maintain. IP800 is an extremely stable and durable Gateway, designed in steel and without ventilation or other moving parts, which means that it is extremely resistant to vibrations and shakings, common on ships. IP800 is a modern Gateway serves as a link between traditional telephony and IP-telephony. The system is scalable and suitable for both small and large businesses.
