Bosch expands partnership with Avaya

Avaya Private Cloud Services (APCS) will provide a range of business communications solutions to 160,000 Bosch associates worldwide.
Bosch Group, a leading global supplier of technology and services, recently announced the expansion of its partnership with Avaya to help support Bosch’s digital transformation strategy across its global operations. Avaya Private Cloud Services (APCS) has signed a $60 million agreement with Bosch to provide a range of business communications solutions to 160,000 Bosch associates worldwide.
The five-year deal builds on Avaya’s existing relationship with Bosch and is part of the group’s wider “Next Generation Workplace” project. The long-term project for Bosch aims to make efficient mobile working even easier for associates. Through the Avaya APCS solution provided, Bosch said it can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for the provision of voice services by as much as 20 percent.
Avaya will provide a range of private cloud-based voice, contact center and collaboration services, helping Bosch’s central IT department to roll out standardized solutions to all Bosch group companies worldwide.
Bosch operates in four business sectors: mobility solutions, industrial technology, consumer goods, and energy and building technology.
Klaus Hüftle, senior VP, Bosch GmbH, said: “We have made a major commitment to driving agility by investing in our IT infrastructure. Accordingly, we need trusted partners that can help us deliver on our vision of the ‘Next Generation Workplace’ and deliver the required levels of quality and service to our associates. Avaya’s proven ability to deliver to demanding deadlines, deep knowledge of our business needs and the technical expertise to execute flawlessly makes them a natural choice to be one of those trusted partners. They are helping us to create a global standard solution that will be made available to Bosch’s 440-plus subsidiaries and regional companies.”
Nidal Abou-Ltaif, president, Avaya International, said: “This new agreement reflects the confidence and trust that Bosch has built up in Avaya, our capability to deliver on this scale of project, and our ability to create innovative solutions that go beyond our own product space. We are strengthening our relationship with a world-leading technology company, and playing our part in helping Bosch to achieve its digital transformation objectives and empower its workforce. Avaya is proud of the endorsement in us that this agreement reflects and we look forward to working more closely with them over the coming years.”
