Munich, May 17, 2019 – NFON AG (together with its subsidiaries “NFON” or the “Company”), the only pan-European cloud PBX provider (telephone system from the cloud), is continuing to drive the internationalization of its business activities in Italy. At the end of March 2019, the company started sales activities in Italy via its newly founded subsidiary in Milan. NFON is thus already active in 14 European countries. Italy, with its workforce of around 22 million – around 18 million in small and medium-sized companies and 4.4 million in large companies – along with other countries such as the UK, Spain, France and Germany, is one of the key markets in Europe when it comes to transformation and digitalization.
Hans Szymanski, CEO and CFO of NFON AG: “With Italy, we are opening up another very attractive market in Europe as planned. With our extensive and currently unique European cloud product portfolio surrounding our core product Cloudya, we consider ourselves excellently positioned to exploit the growth potential. We want to become the number 1 for cloud telephony in Europe. The internationalization of our business activities is a key element in this endeavor. We will continue to consistently implement this growth strategy as in the past.”
Since the start of sales in Italy, numerous talks have already been held with potential trading partners and 30 select partners have been invited to the first partner event in Italy on
May 23, 2019. As in the other countries in which NFON is already successfully active, it is NFON’s goal to quickly and efficiently build up and sustainably strengthen its salesforce in Italy through a comprehensive and well-trained partner network. Throughout Europe, NFON currently maintains intensive relationships with over 2,000 partners. The NFON Italia Roadshow, in which further potential partners in Venice, Milan, Bologna and Turin will participate, is planned at the end of May. In addition, there will be nationwide NFON workshops in Italy on the product portfolio such as the core product Cloudya and Premium Services.
Marco Pasculli, Managing Director of NFON Italy: “The sales landscape in Italy is reacting very positively to our extensive channel offensive. We will expand the partner network as planned and let Italy participate in the European success of the NFON Group.”
