innovaphone in practice: Pankl Racing Systems

Pankl Racing Systems opts for a unified communications solution by innovaphone

The Austrian company, Pankl Racing Systems, is specialized in developing and manufacturing engine and drivetrain components for racing cars, high performance vehicles and the aerospace industry. Whenever a Formula 1 car starts in Monaco or Monza, it will very probably entail components from the Austrian racing specialist.


With a total of about 1,400 employees in 8 global locations, Pankl Racing Systems is one of the most important employers in the Austrian town of Kapfenberg. The company recently secured a larger piece of land for future expansions close to the current site in Kapfenberg. It was desperately necessary to replace the PBX from Alcatel that had been used for company communication in Bruck and Kapfenberg for some 15 years.


“We favoured an innovaphone solution because, in our opinion, it fulfilled the requirements of Pankl perfectly.” explains Michael Ofner, Manager IT at Pankl Racing Systems. After a three-month test installation in one of the company’s departments, the final decision was made in favour of an innovaphone PBX - and against the solutions of two well-known competitors.


All-in-all a total of 500 extensions were connected to the new system at the two sites in Kapfenberg and Bruck, about half of which via DECT. The innovaphone IP232 design telephone was the desk-top phone used. Staff also have access to the ESTOS ProCall software as an addition to the IP232 devices. This allows subscribers to dial from the computer and to integrate own contacts from Outlook. Pankl staff are managing well with the new phones. Michael Ofner reports: “Not only is voice quality on the innovaphone telephones excellent, the staff is delighted with the usability; the design is perfect.” Another aspect of the innovaphone PBX was well liked at Pankl: “The VoIP gateways and IP phones have hardly any time out when rebooting”, says Günter Prasshofer. The reason for this is that the innovaphone PBX runs on a very lean and fast operating system that has been developed especially.


This and other reports about successful installations with innovaphone are available here. Clichere for the pdf version of this case study.
