- Telefónica Spain has just acquired 10,000 licenses with which the Enterprise Social Network Zyncro will become the main communication system for its employees. Telefónica will also include the ENS as part of its integrated communications range for large enterprises.
- Familiar with today’s social business technology market, Telefónica has chosen Zyncro due to its flexibility, its capacity for personalization, its different installation modes available in Telefónica’s cloud infrastructure or in the customer’s own data center, and its strict compliance with data protection legislation as required by major corporations.
- Conscious of multiple devices, tools and systems, through Zyncro Telefónica plans to offer a unified, integrated solution that responds to companies’ communication needs, both in terms of voice and transaction and social requirements.
Telefónica Spain has just acquired 10,000 Zyncro licenses to use Zyncro as the main internal communication system for its employees and has signed with the Spanish provider an impressive plan to commercialize the Enterprise Social Network, leader in Europe, Latin America and Asia, among its main clients.
Zyncro, which has undergone sharp growth in figures and international expansion over the past two years, tripling users and customers, and going from fourteen to twenty eight countries thanks to an agreement reached with Telefónica, seeks to change the way companies work, communicate, and collaborate. As Lluís Font, the company’s CEO, says, “our alliance with this multi-national telecommunications leader represents an value-added support for Zyncro as a business solution applied effectively and integrated with the communication needs of companies. It consolidates our international presence, and is another step forward in the penetration within major organizations, where Zyncro represents a more secure and flexible solution when compared to other more rigid solutions offered by US multi-nationals, which are less adapted to data protection regulations.”
Together Telefónica and Zyncro have developed an integrated communications solution for all Telefónica customers, with Zyncro acting as a social layer and a single, integrated point of access to the leading corporate and transational systems of the company: email, chat, ERPs such as SAP, office packages such as Office 365, or Microsoft’s SharePoint among others; and enhancing the mobility of the Enterprise Social Network given the current multidevice scenario. Zyncro already has fully customizable apps for iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android (cell and tablet), and BlackBerry, and it will soon launch its version for Windows 8, which has been developed for specific Telefónica projects. Furthermore, unlike its competitors, Zyncro offers Telefónica customers the option of installation in the Telefónica cloud or in the customer’s own data center.
Telefónica Spain thus starts out on the path set in 2011 by Telefónica Latin America to incorporate social technology for its employees and in its product portfolio, with Zyncro being the chosen solution.
A symbol of this new business alliance is the event ComunícaTE, which took place on May 6 at Casa América, Madrid, headed up by Zyncro, Telefónica and Intel, at which more than 350 executives attended, where Carlos Rabazo, Personal Communications Business Development Manager at Telefónica Key Accounts, presented the strategic vision of social software and integrated communications that Telefónica is currently developing using Zyncro technology.
In Carlos’ own words, “along these lines, we (Telefónica) have opted for Zyncro as a tool that will act as a single interface for accessing all collaboration functions and voice and data capabilities in enterprises, in order to have a fully integrated environment.”
