Sunrise has launched a unified-communications-as-a-service offering to enterprises in Switzerland.

The operator’s new UCaaS product features telephony, e-mail, instant messaging, video conferencing, document and desktop sharing services on one platform.

Customers can choose individual services and tailor them to their own needs, Sunrise said, noting that “very few” companies want to launch and manage their own unified communications service.

The operator is working with a range of partners including Alcatel, AudioCodes, Huawei and Juniper Networks to deliver the service.

“[UCaaS] will allow companies to have all of their employees collaborate internally and externally and work at various locations in a secure environment,” said Robert Wigger, Chief Business Officer at Sunrise.

“With the new Sunrise UCaaS, we offer the solutions a company needs to adopt and modify today's state-of-the-art collaboration platforms at the drop of a hat.”

The launch comes as Sunrise looks to improve its offering to businesses.

Revenues from the enterprise segment fell over eight percent to CHF129.4 billion in the first six months of the year, while EBITDA fell by over 13 percent to CHF62.5 million.

Speaking to European Communications in September, Sunrise CEO Olaf Swantee said strengthening his company’s position in the B2B market, particularly for SMEs, was one his biggest challenges over the next 12 months.

The operator presents its Q3 financials later this week.
