Customer Endorsement Avaya is a privately held global provider of business communications and collaboration solutions, with assets in the region of US$5 billion. Avaya made the decision to support the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2013 (SIF 2013) at a Platinum level of sponsorship, to take advantage of a unique and high profile opportunity that the package offered to showcase the environmental and social benefits of Avaya collaboration technology to a global audience of decision makers, and demonstrate alignment with a well-reputable, global organization, UNEP.
“Participating in a conference like this is an amazing and interesting experience. It was truly a global gathering of like-minded individuals, collaborating to address the challenges and opportunities around climate change,” Brett Shockley said, Avaya Chief Technology Officer. “The attendees were all very senior-level people in their organizations, looking for ways to be more efficient, effective, and have greater social and environmental responsibility.” Avaya confirmed that the Forum met their expectations as it resulted in new business development with new audiences, and the Forum enabled Avaya to be credibly positioned as a thought leader. With new business and lead generation being key reasons for Avaya’s involvement, the quality and breadth of leads across multiple geographies met their expectations. Crucially, Avaya believes new business is likely to develop from the interactions at SIF 2013. Throughout the preparation process, during and after the event, the Climate Action support team was very responsive to inquiries and provided much needed guidance and support. Avaya was very pleased with the support to their booth display and technology demonstrations.
“Participating in a conference like this is an amazing and interesting experience.” Brett Shockley said, Chief Executive Officer, Avaya
Traffic and footfall to their exhibition booth was successful in large part because they were able to demonstrate their technology onsite and person-to-person with anyone that stopped by the booth to learn more. “Avaya was honored to be part of the important discussions at the Sustainable Innovation Forum,” said Sara Broadbent, Director, Corporate Responsibility, Philanthropy and EHS. “Our customers realize cost, energy and environmental savings by adopting Avaya collaboration solutions. We were thrilled to bring our solutions to this world stage and share our customer’s success stories.”
