3CX

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.

Genesys contact center suite is super powerful and can do anything a medium or lager contact needs however the cost is tremendous. It would not be feasible for smaller businesses. It would be nice to see a smaller suite of apps that would accommodate small to medium contact centers.

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.

  • VHT as a stand alone model can be easily plugged into to the current call routing with minimal changes and it works like charm.
  • Platform SDKs are a powerful tool that help integrate with other third party solutions or to build custom made applications.
  • The whole routing solution is amazing . With user friendly composer, you have the option of building both VRUs and routing strategies. And, they are very easy to deploy.
  • The level of details for report customization is another strong point.

Cons

3CX

  • 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

Genesys Engage

  • Difficult to build complete end-to-end automation of deployment.
  • Genesys Framework Alerting functionality is flexible, but overly complicated to manage. Needs ability to mass deploy alerts.
  • SIP server feature functionality feels limited and requires using router to build in what in many switches are basic functions.

It's the best product with customizations that fit our organisation. It is easy to upscale and is innovative. It has easy integrations with different back end and front end platforms and off the shelf integration of VoIP with a number of SBCs.

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.

Overall, from a customer perspective and also an agent perspective, it is very easy to use Genesys Engage's platform. The Agent Desktop and Genesys WDE are good. Usability is high and I would consider it an easy to use product and easy to adopt from this perspective.

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.

There's definitely room for improvement. I would have love to see the chat functionality work more frequently. The level of expertise has diminished over the years. I understand that this in part has to do with the number of new products that has been introduced, but should not be an excuse for the lack of readiness.

Implementation on Genesys Engage is rather complex. Implementation needs specialized Genesys Professionals and resources, in-house or contractors, who are able to implement the platform and be able to integrate with other in-house or COTS systems. The design and discovery phase is also very important at the beginning.

Alternatives Considered

3CX

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.

Our original call center routing was done through Avaya. We still use it on the back end and from what I can tell, Genesys vastly improves upon their offering. We are able to do so much more with the customization that Genesys allows. Anything you can think of, you can probably do with a Genesys solution.

The Interactive Intelligence SIP based contact center platform has broken through the barriers of "board based" technology to processor based limits on scalability. This means their CIC premise or cloud platform can be engineered to support agent counts into the thousands.

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.
Artur Bittencourt | TrustRadius Reviewer

Genesys Engage

  • Improved customer experience for contact center applications
  • Enhances internal and external communications through Presence Management
  • Minimal investment in hardware since CIC is primarily a software solution that runs on industry standard Windows servers
  • Can be deployed as a "cloud" solution or an on premise solution with basically the same feature set regardless of deployment
  • Provides 100% application redundancy in a fail-over situation that also supports full geographic redundancy
