The history of J.F. Amonn is the family story that began around 200 years ago. Today Amonn group is active in various industries including stationery items and typography, hotel supplies, but first of all it is one of the most famous Italian brand for wood preservation that offers the full range of wood preservative primers and varnishes.
The enterprise that has started its activity in South Tyrol has now become world famous due to the fact that each company within the Amonn group is notable for the emphasis on quality and for high professionalism in its particular sector.
Amonn group has decided to improve and to develop the communication aspect, since nine offices and three departments of the Holding still make one family, one variegated universe.
To proceed with the modernization of the communication system that required the substitution of the existing telephone system in all the offices, Amonn group has turned to Tre Ci, the company specializing in provision of IT and telephony products and services.
Wildix system has been chosen as the most flexible solution, easy and comfortable to use. Wildix system has been installed in 8 offices, in Bolzano, Ponte nelle Alpi, Verona and Milan. In the closest future Amonn group plans to replace the old communication system in the Vienna office, the only location that is not yet connected to the intra-company communication network.
Nine offices of the company are now connected via VPN and use telephone lines provided by Brennercom. Wildix PBXs and VoIP phones have been installed in each office allowing a huge number of users in different locations to communicate in one seamless environment and to use Collaboration, the communication tool of Wildix.
“Previously each employee had to consult a paper phone book in order to get in touch with the colleagues. It was difficult to memorize them all, since everyone had a different number, it took time to find the needed contacts. Now there is a shared phonebook, extension numbers consist of maximum three figures, the search of contacts is quick and the time spent on certain operations has considerably decreased”, says Roland Weissteiner, the IT manager of Amonn..
Another benefit of Wildix system is the cordless system W-AIR that has been installed in the office of Amonn Profi Color in Bolzano. W-AIR system allows data and voice transfer on a radio channel and offers a number of Unified Communications features, such as access to the corporate phonebook and information on the presence and activity status of colleagues (available, busy, away, on the phone). The Bolzano office includes a warehouse of 2000 square meters. The employees can move around the warehouse without worrying about the signal coverage, since it’s guaranteed by the presence of W-AIR Repeaters. Each employee can get in touch with the colleagues at any given moment, answer the phone calls, consult the corporate phonebook and see the information on the presence and activity status of the colleagues using a cordless phone.
THE NEW COMMUNICATION SYSTEM HAS BROUGHT A POSITIVE CHANGE TO THE NETWORK DUE TO THE ELIMINATION OF UNUSED TELEPHONE LINES AND TO THE SIGNIFICANT DECREASE OF TIME AND COSTS SPENT ON COMMUNICATION
