“Mitel’s MiVoice and MiCollab are simply the way we work now – the mobile enterprise is completely enabled. Without these solutions I don’t see how we’d be able to be as effective or productive. Since the solution is in the cloud, people can do their jobs from anywhere, which truly changes the way we work.”- Patrice Belie, CEO, Hub One
Hub One, a subsidiary of Groupe ADP (Aéroport de Paris), is a telecom operator and integrator of mobile and tracking solutions for 4500 enterprises of differents sectors in France and supporting 95 million passengers per year across three Parisian airports in France (Roissy Charles de Gaulle, Orly, and Le Bourget), as well as in shopping malls and campuses, and another 70 million passengers per year through the Amsterdam airport.
More recently, by leveraging its experience in airport environments and partnering with companies like Mitel, Hub One grew beyond the airport market and expanded to other vertical markets. For business telephony and unified communications, Hub One delivers 100% cloud-based solutions based on Mitel MiVoice Business and MiCollab, Mitel’s collaboration solution. The goal is to enable the mobile enterprise, making communication seamless.
In 2011, the company selected Mitel as its cloud IP telephony provider, and resells – and uses – Mitel’s unified communications and telephony cloud services, as well as Mitel’s devices and applications for business customers. For example, Hub One uses MiVoice Business as their core private cloud solution across both French and Dutch Airports. Bélie notes that, “Thanks to Mitel we have grown so that the airport market now represents only half of our business.” Avis and the French Grand Chancery of the Legion of Honor are some of the prestigious brands that Hub One serves using Mitel cloud solutions.
The Mitel solution is fully in the cloud and managed centrally, making it easy to scale up or down as needed. For example, with an increased number of travelers in the summer and during holidays, airports need to scale and accommodate more employees and more phones.
Bélie says, “With the cloud, we can grow as needed.”
Mobility is a key part of any business today, and Hub One provides tools to enable mobile workers to effectively perform their tasks. Hub One knows that with Mitel’s clear understanding of mobility and as the voice core, they have the right partner and maximum flexibility to meet their current and future business needs. The two companies are working together to help the mobile enterprise make communication seamless.
