Swisscom is bundling all of the company’s workplace and collaboration competencies into the Enterprise Customers division. To this end, the company Axept Webcall is to merge with Swisscom’s Solution Center Workspace & Collaboration unit under Andrej Golob. Axept Webcall, a wholly owned Swisscom subsidiary since 2011, specialises in Unified Communication Collaboration (UCC) solutions – ranging from consulting and projects to operation.
Andrej Golob, commenting on the advantages of the merger: “Axept Webcall’s expertise will enable us to offer our customers comprehensive and enhanced integrated ICT solutions covering all workplace requirements.“ In future, Swisscom will be able to offer workplace, printing, telephony and UCC – all from a single source.
The merger will legally take effect as of 1 January 2015. All 120 of Axept Webcall employees will transfer to Swisscom as a unit beginning from March 2014. The current CEO Daniel Staehelin will assume a new management function in the new unit. His management team will continue in their respective roles. The Axept Webcall brand will be discontinued.
