3CX Phone System

The 3CX system is a well-thought out phone system with many features and options. The plan pricing is very affordable and flexible depending on your business needs. However, the key to having a solid, well-performing system with 3CX is the quality of your Internet connection. You may want to discuss your Internet connection type and speeds with a 3CX reseller before deciding on a 3CX system.

Pros

3CX Phone System

  • Simplicity: Using a single 3CX interface we can manage every phone and extension used throughout our company.
  • Flexibility: There are a wide variety of options to configure each extension and phone. Changing anything after the hardware is deployed is very easy.
  • Portability: Phones with 3CX can be easily moved or repurposed within an office or at remote locations, including users' homes. The mobile app allows users to use their office extension anywhere without exposing their cell number.

  • Reputation Management has never been better. By providing Gated Reviews, businesses can help catch bad customer experiences before the reviews hit the internet, giving the company a chance to fix any problems and win customers for life.
  • Easy-to-Integrate code displays your reviews on your website, and the schema markup helps those reviews to pass stars into Google. Win Win for SEO and SEM.
  • Citation management is an included piece of the pie, which also helps local businesses to make sure local clients can find them and see their reviews easily

Cons

3CX Phone System

  • The webmeeting function is clumsy compared to Zoom or Google Meets (Hangouts).
  • There is no support offered without paying for it, but the web forum that is offered for free does allow you to throw out questions and have them answered by someone in the community of 3CX user administrators.

  • The Only Thing I can think of is the ability to easily determine whether or not a review was done through the platform or if the customer went direct to the Review Site. You do have to jump through hoops for this.
  • They could provide re-sellers more knowledge regarding strategies that seem to work better with different industries. What review source works best for Dental vs Restaurants? What tools are their direct clients using to get the reviews? IPads? Sign in Widget? What process gets the most reviews by Industry would be some great inside information.
  • If they could provide knowledge regarding the day and time people are more likely to respond to reviews by industry.
  • Easier step by step instructions for me to give my clients so they can upload phone numbers and emails. Currently they have a template, but if you change anything on the template, the entire process gets screwed up, so it takes some time before you learn what not to do.

I didn't have to use support personally but I have talked to the administrators of the system and they confirm that any issue is dealt with quickly. As we haven't had big issues I can't talk about priority 1 incidents which require immediate attention, but normal issues are answered fairly quickly and accurately.

Alternatives Considered

3CX Phone System

Both are great - 3CX was chosen for its Windows compatibility, The operation has been very straightforward and was easily integrated and maintained. The ability to migrate later to a stable Unix platform is considered a real plus. We have been very pleased with the ease of use and the stability that the 3CX system provides, even on a Windows platform.

BirdEye was much easier to use and garnered much better and noticeable results. In addition, it was much less expensive as well. The customer service is excellent and they made sure we understood what we needed to do to our profile to be a success.

Return on Investment

3CX Phone System

  • 3CX has a lot to offer for a very low cost as its business model is based on simultaneous calls and not per device. It's very cost effective and very affordable.
  • As the 3CX server does not require a high-performance server to run, with the Public Cloud option, it might allow even further savings.

  • As marketers, we all know the value of a positive testimonial. People are very quick to leave negative comments regarding just about any situation. It's nice to have a forum that highlights many of the good things going on in a company.
  • Birdeye is also a positive tool in helping us maintain a high response rate to all quotes made, whether they be positive or negative. We address all quotes as part of our business practice, and the software makes it easy for us to do this in a timely and professional manner.
  • Overall, I feel the rates for Birdeye are a bit expensive. Since I have a number of facilities, it would be helpful for renewal purposes if they could have more discounts for multi-facility organizations.
