From effective communication with staff to reaching out to clients and customers, communication plays a huge factor in business operations. However, the business communication between customers and companies are getting more complex and challenging as a result of digitalization.

Thus, understanding the problems and symptoms to communication challenges within a business is the only way to find solutions to the obstacles. This led to the foundation of the company Luware in the year 2010 to provide the most suitable solution that allows organizations to not only satisfy the requirements of their customers but also to exceed their expectations.

Luware aims to be an one stop shop for Skype for Business. It provides solutions in the area of contact center, team ACD, or individual workstations for omni-modality like chat, voice, video, e-mail, social media and co-browsing. It also offers the full range of additional features for Skype for Business and Lync.

Headquartered in Zurich, Luware started its venture into the business by making a thorough investigation to obtain Cisco ICM (Intelligent Contact Management) to route calls on the Microsoft OCS (Office Communication Server). The operation was halfway successful, but then Cisco declined the use of API in that UseCase. This propelled the company to create its own products for its first ever customer- Medicall, a 24/7 hours call centre in the medical industry serving emergency numbers, which was looking for a new way to serve their customers.

Luware is driven by the values like innovation and infusing quality with simplicity in creating products for its customers’ success.
