Your telephone switchboard in the Cloud
Vianova Centrex is a multi-tenant platform dedicated to Vianova Partners.
The platform allows our Partners to provide Vianova Customers with a Cloud PBX service that adapts to businesses of all sizes and levels of complexity: from large organizations with thousands of users that need integration and customization through to call centers, hotels, stores, and small professional practices.
Each Customer gets all the features of an advanced PBX plus the flexibility, scalability, and security of a Cloud solution guaranteed by Vianova.
Centrex benefits from fixed-mobile convergence and, thanks to the integration with Vianova Phone, allows users to use their company extension on their smartphone.
Thanks to their technical skills, hands-on experience and local presence, Vianova’s Partners are able to independently provide the best solutions for the design, sale, rental, installation, billing, and maintenance of the Cloud PBX service based on the Vianova Centrex platform.

The following diagram is a representation of a Vianova Centrex installation of a company with sites in Milan and Rome.
- Colleagues from each location can move (mobility) from one site to another while keeping their internal phone number and the configuration of all the services of their telephone terminal.
- At the Rome site there is a Call Center with a group of operators in ACD configuration.
- People who work at the two sites can use all the telephone services (e.g. transfer, call forwarding, etc.) as if they were in the same location.
