NFON AG, the only pan-European cloud PBX provider, today announced the launch of its sales activities in Italy. As planned, NFON AG opens a branch in another European country with its own subsidiary, NFON ITALIA SRL. Italy is the 14th country in which the NFON Group is active and represents an important step in the company’s ongoing internationalization. "We are proud to be able to offer our cloud services in Italy with immediate effect", explains Hans Szymanski, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of NFON AG. "Italy, with around 22 million employees, is one of Europe’s key markets for transformation and digitization, alongside the United Kingdom, Spain, France and Germany. We will use this growth potential for telephony solutions from the cloud for NFON."
Not only the classic company structure of Italy is interesting for NFON AG. "For example, the tourism industry in Italy demands modern, flexible business communication with which processes can be optimized and costs minimised. Premium solutions such as Nhospitality or Ncontactcenter play an important role in modernizing the communication needs of entire industries," says Marco Pasculli, Managing Director of NFON Italy. Marco Pasculli brings with him a wealth of experience that he has acquired in his numerous management positions at communications companies such as Huawei (Enterprise Division), Nortel Networks, Avaya and, most recently, as Vice President Communications Business Engine at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise. "Marco is the perfect fit for the position of Managing Director and knows the industry like the back of his hand. We are very excited to be working together and are continuing our European success story with Italy," says Hans Szymanski. "Italy is positioning itself as a very cloud-friendly country that wants to be at the forefront of the digitization process. NFON, with its high innovative strength and experience, will be a major player in this process. NFON is the new freedom in business communication," adds Marco Pasculli. NFON is active in Italy with immediate effect and is starting out from Milan with a team of seven.
Since its foundation in 2007, NFON AG has recorded continuous growth. The IPO in 2018 (Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Prime Standard) was an important step for NFON’s expansion plans. With the launch of the new core product Cloudya and the takeover of Deutsche Telefon Standard AG at the beginning of the year, the corporate strategy is consistently continued. Hans Szymanski: "NFON AG is proving its motivation and commitment at the beginning of the year. After Italy, we plan to open up further markets in the foreseeable future – with a clear focus on becoming number 1 in Europe".
