    How A Swiss Golfing Hotel Dazzles Customers with Mobility

     

    On the banks of Lake Geneva, Hôtel Château de Bonmont is a holiday destination for golfers and vacationers from around the world. Hôtel Château de Bonmont boasts historic rooms as well as spacious grounds, two restaurants, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, solarium, 18-hold golf course, tennis, and horse stables.

    The hotel needed a new phone system with enhanced mobile capabilities that would enable complete communication coverage throughout the premises – including the 6,737-yard golf course. It was important to management that guests could contact the staff at any time regardless of location, which prompted management to look for a system that could provide optimal availability for its staff by using mobile terminals and straightforward handling of the system.

    “Our main requirement is the mobility for our employees, who must be reachable anytime, anywhere while working." —Philippe von Escher, General Manager, Hôtel Château de Bonmont

    Von Escher added, “We have two reception desks and 50 employees working in six buildings, as well as the rest of the premises. Being able to take and make phone calls at any time is essential for many of these staff members – and that means anywhere on our grounds. Our area is very spacious, and the staff is on the move very frequently. We have many types of workers – green keepers/gardeners, stewards, waiters, etc., who are all mobile and must be reachable at all times.”

    The company turned to Mitel and its mobility solution, including wireless DECT phones and mobile terminals. How did the upgrade turn out for the hotel?
