KONE Strengthens Partnership with Orange, Migrates Contact Center to the Cloud

KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has strengthened its partnership with Orange Business Services by moving its global contact center solution to the cloud. This is part of KONE’s commitment to delivering a high-quality end-user experience worldwide.

KONE customer care centers are a vital component for customer service for the end-user and direct business customers. They play a strong role in overseeing critical elevator operations, service records and technical data.

By moving the contact center infrastructure to the cloud, KONE will be able to benefit from the scalability, flexible omnichannel capabilities, intelligent call routing and built-in security. The contact center can handle email, voice, and alarms for sites around the world and is integrated into KONE’s remote monitoring platform.

As part of the agreement, Orange has established five contact center hubs globally to simplify and optimize the organization, moving away from a site-based infrastructure to the cloud. The solution spans 35 contact center sites across all continents.
