Avaya Holdings, Inc. today announced that Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI) has connected its global locations and workforce with an Avaya Cloud network. The company, which manufactures interiors for the world’s most recognized automotive brands, is enabling thousands of employees in 110 locations with Avaya unified communications and collaboration solutions delivered via the Cloud. Avaya is also providing managed services for YFAI’s entire communications operation.
Established in 2015, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors is a giant in its industry. The newly-formed company needed a global communications and collaboration platform that would provide the advanced capabilities to easily connect employees in any location around the world. At the same time, however, YFAI recognized that the requirements for managing such a network would detract from its focus on its core business.
The answer was to leverage Avaya’s expertise to deliver and manage global private cloud network based on Avaya Aura® unified communications. Using a standard cloud solution across the 20 countries where YFAI has facilities enables the speed and agility the company needs for employees to collaborate more effectively and efficiently. As an OPEX solution, YFAI avoids extensive upfront capital costs and instead has a predictable monthly cost structure.
“We felt that Avaya was the only company that could support our global operations with a cloud-based solution with the quality, security and resiliency we need for our workforce to collaborate anywhere in the world. As our company grows, we believe that the Avaya Unified Communications platform will support us into the future.”
Kay Matthiesen, director, Global Infrastructure, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors
