MILAN – Ariston Thermo Group’s ongoing global expansion left it with disparate platforms and technologies that were not aligned with the company’s goals of growth and integration. To resolve that issue Ariston Thermo has chosen an integrated Verizon communications and networking solution that will enable the manufacturing leader to drive more effective collaboration across its extensive operations and implement a range of advanced services.
Verizon’s solution consists of a consolidated and fully managed global IP-enabled network platform that can be quickly expanded to support Ariston Thermo’s changing business needs. The solution also includes the deployment of advanced, IP-enabled collaboration services, including Hosted IP Centrex using Voice over Internet Protocol, to deliver further productivity and cost and management efficiencies – key goals for Ariston Thermo.
Ariston Thermo Group, one of the world leaders in Themic Comfort, offers a complete range of heating and hot water products, systems, services and solutions designed to provide the maximum degree of comfort with the minimum use of energy. Founded in Italy more than 80 years ago, the company now employs more than 6,400 people in 42 companies to support customers in over 150 countries around the world.
“Our company growth has been driven by innovation and our ongoing desire to explore new trends and new markets, and that applies just as much to our use of technology as to our product development and service delivery,” said Giovanni Daconto, Ariston Thermo Group’s IT manager. “Our global network is really the backbone of our global operations and needs to be flexible and scalable enough to support our changing business needs. In Verizon, we have found a business partner who combines an expansive solutions portfolio with the global reach, experience and expertise we need to achieve our business goals.”
