Sanofi Aventis in "good health" with Mitel VoIP

Sanofi Aventis is a leading global pharmaceutical company present in 100 countries with a workforce of approximately 100,000 employees worldwide and total consolidated sales of around 28 billion Euros.

 Mitel’s VoIP solution will network Sanofi Aventis’ main Saudi offices in the three regions of KSA in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam resulting in toll free internal calls between sites.

The Mitel 3300 CXi Controller, aimed at the SMB segment, will be installed at the offices in Riyadh and Dammam and the Mitel 3300 MXe Controller will be deployed as a gateway in Jeddah interfacing with the existing TDM system to enable migration to IP when required.

The award winning Mitel Your Assistant™ Softphone and collaboration suite will also be rolled out to mobile workers giving them the flexibility to work remotely, make and receive calls on the soft-phone and share documents across the corporate network.

The tailor-made solution also includes the Mitel Quick Conference solution making it possible for employees of Sanofi Aventis to dial into the Mitel conference bridge from any location to either join or initiate a conference call, thus connecting the employees together in a quick, easy and cost-effective manner.

‘Sanofi’s adoption of the Mitel IP communications solution is yet another proof point of our market credibility, reliability and product innovation in the healthcare market in the Kingdom, said Hisham El-Amili, Mitel GM, GCC.

‘Implementing Mitel’s VoIP telephony platforms allows ETE to fully leverage our expertise in providing VoIP solutions that are configured to the needs of SME-customers in Jeddah, regardless of their requirements. All is possible with IP’, said Alaa Salama Al-Shaikh, Technical Manager, Electronic Technicians Est.
