)-- Datacraft, Asia’s leading independent IT solutions and Services Company, has been chosen by Avanta, UK’s leading provider of Serviced Office space, to build a converged communication infrastructure for their Business Service centers in India. The new infrastructure is designed to achieve high service standards and cost efficiencies for Avanta’s customers using its facilities.
As a part of Avanta’s US$1.4 million contract, Datacraft India was tasked with setting up the state-of-the-art converged communications infrastructure for two of its new business service centres in Mumbai. Avanta has previously engaged Datacraft to set up its first business service centre in New Delhi in 2007 and was impressed by Datacraft’s technical expertise, quality of service and client engagement.
The contract included provisioning of IP end points, Cisco Call Manager, and foundation network infrastructure, in addition to design and consultancy, engineering and staging, project management and Uptime maintenance service. It also entailed integrating Avanta’s call billing solution “Elephant” to the IPT solution and EVOT call attendant solution for incoming call management.
“The converged communication infrastructure will equip Avanta’s business service centers with the latest communications technology for an improved user experience, and make us the preferred choice for their office facilities. As with all Avanta Serviced Office centers, our facility in India is set to feature cutting-edge communications technology, including VoIP telephone systems, scalable Internet access and dedicated client server rooms. We are confident that with enhanced customer service, cost efficiencies and improved competitiveness, our Avanta serviced offices will certainly set a new benchmark in business service in India,” said Sean Morgan, Managing Director Avanta India
“Converged communications is an essential part of any business service and paves the way for improved competitiveness and operational efficiencies. Most importantly, the technology will enable Avanta to expand their service portfolio and bring greater level of customer service and satisfaction. This will further set Avanta apart from its competition and help maintain its leading position,” said Sunil Manglore, CEO, Datacraft India.
“We are a leading exponent of converged communications and one of the largest providers of integrated networks in the world. This track record has given us a competitive and unparalleled expertise not just in implementing converged communications, but in understanding the business benefits that arise from it.
