The project is to be implemented by Al Ofoq CCTS, a Mitel Gold Solution Provider located in Jeddah in the western region of Kingdom.
”Mitel’s reputation in this particular market segment was a considerable factor in our decision to replace the existing German-made telephony system, particularly in light of the fact that Mitel’s solution was able to provide backwards-compatibility and forward-scalability. In essence, this will provide the optimal combination for our needs in terms of investment protection and advanced features and functionality that we expect,” said Ibrahim Atwa, Director of Business Development, Makkah Hilton & Towers.

This holy city is so unique that it is never affected by guest fluctuations or seasonal changes due to the ongoing pilgrimage and umrah visits throughout the year.
