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.

Bold360

  • Ease of use - the setup is simple. Receiving chats is quick and efficient
  • The ability to organize chats - our company has multiple assignment groups and this program allows a breakdown to all those groups.
  • The ability to format to each user - I can easily tailor personal responses so I don't have to type everything out. It's a very simple process and easy to access.

Cons

3CX Phone System

  • Logs - They give you general or really high-level info but you can't really drill down to specifics of what happened and who did what
  • Better segregation of roles or implementation of RBAC - sometimes you provide permissions to manager to be able to manage queue or ring group and they have way more permissions that are needed but no way to scale them down

  • Formatting Issues
  • It would be better if there is a walk around for chats that get disconnected due to an interrupted power supply.
  • The window (space) to interact with customers can be made wider.
  • Also, timestamps like in BoldChat can be implemented in Bold360.

It's been doing really good job for us. Are there better PBX systems out there? For sure there are, with more features and better support. But those are way more expensive and harder to implement and maintain. This system is almost no brainier, next -> next -> next -> finish and you have installed it. With a few more configs to hook it up to your SIP or PRI lines, you are up and running! Everything is GUI based so it's easy to navigate. It have everything you need to run serious call centre so I would recommend it for anyone unless you are Fortune 500 company with billions of budget for IT, then spend the big money and go with Cisco PBX.

Canned messages, history, data recording are excellent. Support is proactive and responsive. Pulling information from the Bold reports and not knowing all the enhancements or tricks to research Bold chats (at first) can create a learning curve.

The 3CX Phone System is only a five because while they provide set-up/how-to/Q and A documents to help your district or company get started, they do not offer support for free. The documents provided, though, are good enough for you to get you up and running. We also found a good source of help through a sip trunk provider, which was a 3CX reseller provider.

BoldChat support was blazing fast and wonderful. They helped in resolving some of our nightmares during odd hours. It is one of the best support services we encountered. Support personnel were very knowledgeable and very supportive in understanding and helping to resolve our problems. It was really a very good approach BoldChat support has to its customers.

Alternatives Considered

3CX Phone System

We didn't want Cisco Call Manager anymore. We used a very old version previously, but nonetheless it didn't have a very good name in the company. PureCloud was too call center focused so in the end, we like 3CX best. A small pilot was configured very fast, and after we went full production, there were no big issues.

I used LivePerson in my previous company. It was the same as BoldChat in terms of being a standalone chat application. But when I started using Bold360, for the very first time I felt I'd found a tool that made chat a really good channel for communications.

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.

Bold360

  • By fast responses, the customer satisfaction rate has been increased by Bold360.
  • There are some difficulties in multitasking and it sometimes reduces the response time.
  • In the business point of view, it helps us to create more excellence in our work.
