About Us

Viacomms Telecom is Kuwait Shareholding Company specialized in providing mission critical communications (UC & CC) infrastructure to many of the country's largest companies, hospitals, hotels, schools and government institutions. As a leading Enterprise Partner, Viacomms works with world-class vendors and leaders in Gartner Magic Quadrant. Technical operations run 24/7, powered by top-notch experienced field engineers who hold the highest vendor's specialized rigorous certifications.

While talking to several customers, we have come to realize their desire to deal with professional companies focused on enterprise-telephony solutions and services. When it comes to voice mission-critical applications, customers are frustrated with the lack of local expertise and having to deal with mediocre companies who overpromise while doing the sales, underdeliver during implementation, and provide poor services during the warranty and post-warranty period.

In fact, smart customers know that the bitterness of poor after-sales service remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Hence, our focus is to consistently provide the best enterprise-telephony solutions coupled with our professional support services.

Our services are positioned above and beyond what our competition can offer and are made possible through Viacomms expert technical staff together with our highest certifications & partnerships with Genesys - The World’s #1 Customer Experience Platform; and with Mitel, the #1 market share leader in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Unified Communications. .

Viacomms believes SIP is the standard protocol for all advanced communication and hence we became Grandstream Partner in Kuwait providing powerful range of SIP Video Phones. Grandstream guarantees broad interoperability with the majority of softswitches and SIP-based platforms including Mitel, Avaya, Cisco, Microsoft Lync, Unify, BroadSoft, Denwa, OnSIP, Telinta, PortaOne, Senso Telecom, Sonus, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, and many more.
