UNICOPE accompanies Wiener Hilfswerk on the path to the digital future of communication, providing excellent and personalized service.

The goal was to find a partner for the telephony support of Wiener Hilfswerk. The desired support was categorized into three areas, which are as follows:

  • Providing infrastructure for telephony operations
  • Supporting the installation and configuration of the telephone system, taking responsibility for operating individual components and systems
  • Assisting with first and second-level support during the transition period until the internal human resources are fully established

More information:

There are 20 facility addresses in Vienna, consisting of 4 types of facilities (neighbourhood centres, day centres, socially assisted living, senior living communities), and the main regional office with approximately 200 employees in Schottenfeldgasse. The smallest site has 1 user (at one location), and the largest site has 9 users (all within the Vienna city area).

Project Implementation

A hosted telephone system was deployed with desk phones, apps, and customized functions catering to different divisions within Wiener Hilfswerk. The system includes features such as group calls, departmental voicemails, and more. Besides a virtual fax, there will be an increased focus on the deployment management of field care personnel through the use of a softphone client and mobile apps in the future.
