    In many scenarios decision is driven by budget and compared to other solutions at the time of purchase [3CX] was simply the cheapest solution for what it has to offer. If you are looking for integrations, extensibility, and advanced functionalities, this might not be a solution for you. At the time of use (and this may have changed by now), there was a lack of APIs, CLI commands, and similar so nothing could be automated with the system. There are ways of importing data through CSV but automation would solve us so much time and support calls if we were able to connect with other systems.

    Genesys Cloud CX is great for so many reasons! It's a power house for getting business done. The company I am at uses it daily... we are a call center that makes thousands of calls a day. Genesys Cloud CX not only dials those calls for us, but it also tracks every thing as well - which is easily able to be exported for reports. There are so many things you can track - over 50 different categories like talk time, hold time, conversion, etc... Genesys Cloud CX helps all our employees work remotely on the web based dialer, which has allowed us to hire all over the states! The Genesys Cloud CX team is continuously making updates to ensure that it's extremely user friendly! Overall it's a great product for our business.

    Pros

    3CX

    • 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.

    Cons

    3CX

    • I would like to be able to see direct-dial numbers on the handsets. Currently that is not possible but that would be a nice feature.
    • You need an SBC per location, which can be a point of failure.
    • You also need a server that might get disconnected, which is another point of failure.

    • DCM (e-mail tool) is a kind of system within a system. It requires logging in twice and it's not as stable as Genesys Cloud CX.
    • Based on our worldwide operations we needed to split the markets within multiple divisions. These divisions are still giving us a hard time with daily operations. We have multi-skilled users which sometimes need access to multiple markets but if these markets are in different divisions, it also means that users will get access to all the markets within those divisions. This is not an acceptable thing from a security perspective.
    • Internal chat - we tried to test if it would fit our needs but there were many things we couldn't filter. One of the main problems was that all the users could contact each other and this couldn't be filtered by team/market/site/division. It also showed the statuses of all the users which we saw as a data breach as other colleagues could see how long users are on productive/non-productive statuses.

    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.

    I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

    Alternatives Considered

    3CX

    The main differences between 8x8, Inc. and 3CX is pricing and ease of use in my opinion. The 3CX system uses annual based pricing plans based on of simultaneous calls your company needs, not the number of extensions/users and offers a free plan. 8x8, Inc. charges per extension with different plans. We currently have 19 extensions so the 3CX system makes more sense for us, however, if your company only has a few extensions you may want to throughly consider both options. In my experience, it was difficult to add new extensions and phones with 8x8 because at least at that time we had 8x8 I could not add anything on the web admin. I had to call a sales rep which took a lot more time. Also, if you didn't purchase a phone and/or headset directly from 8x8 at a usually higher price than Amazon for example then you would have to spend anywhere from 30 minutes to hours on the phone with 8x8 tech support to program the phone to work with the 8x8 system so adding a new extension could turn into a long ordeal. I can easily add new extensions on 3CX directly in the web cpanel. Granted, if you are actually adding a new phone number you would need to purchase that number from a company like ATT first before adding it to 3CX. The difference between a phone number and an extension would be a phone number allows a customer to call in directly using that number. The extension would require the customer to call the main business number then be transferred to the extension. 3CX provides a list of supported phone models on their website

    Very similar platforms. Sometimes the other ones assume the companies already have a CRM where they will manage some stuff away from their platform. Although Genesys Cloud CX goes in that direction, it still has some useful old features. Genesys-PS were amazing and the knowledge transfer was great.

    Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.

    Return on Investment

    3CX

    • 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.

    • Efficiency has been vastly increased. The number of abandoned calls has been reduced upon switching to Genesys Cloud and customers are seeing this benefit as well as our agents.
    • Cost of our call center is expected to be reduced upon full transition to Genesys Cloud. As this is one of our highest costs of business from a technology perspective, we are very happy to have found something that meets our needs but also reduces cost.
