Dubai's Landmark Group has selected Interquartz models 9330AV and 9826N for its mid-market hotel brand, Citymax, in conjunction with Avaya Hospitality Solutions.
Model 9330AV is an Avaya branded analogue phone with Message waiting indicator, mute and redial and model 9826N is a hotline telephone. A total of 2700 units were supplied.
Avaya will deploy a mix of analogue and IP Telephony solutions at three Citymax hotels in the UAE.
Citymax is the latest addition to growing number of hotels in Avaya's hospitality portfolio. Opening its doors later this year, Citymax hotels are conveniently located in Bur Dubai, Al Barsha, and Sharjah.
The group aims to have 20 hotels across the region within the next five years, catering to budget-conscious business and leisure travellers.
Olive, an Avaya partner in the UAE, has been assigned the task of successfully deploying the solution. Each guest room will feature an Avaya 9330AV analogue phone, while the hotels back-office operations will be equipped with Avaya's IP Telephony solutions.
"With organizations facing challenges such as budget cuts and reduced profits as a result of the economic downturn, the Avaya hospitality solution will help Citymax better manage its communications systems and ensures scalability, and reliability," said Fredrick Sabty, Director Hospitality Solutions, Avaya EMEA.
