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.

The ability to have video conferences is a great functionality offered through Jive. I would most definitely recommend it due to the quality of the audio and connection when utilizing this feature. The Jive app offered in the apps market isn't the best option if you are needing to take calls while on the go.

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.

  • Support. Nowadays it's very hard to get good support and I feel that Jive is focusing on providing that good support. Support was the main reason we left the last phone company we went with.
  • Reliability - so far (3 months) the phone systems have worked and been reliable and we haven't had any major issues.

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.

GoToConnect (formerly Jive)

  • PBX portal is a bit bulky; there are a lot of links but not always the most intuitive. That said, customer service is great about helping to navigate and change it if anything is needed.
  • When I call they always ask me for the ticket number first. It would be good if they could ask if I have opened a ticket or need to open one. Conversations can be a bit lengthy trying to explain what I'm needing to do.

We've been very impressed with the flexibility and cost-savings we've experienced on Jive. Also, they've been very responsive to our needs and attentive to supporting us. We are a pleased customer and look forward to many more years of working with Jive. I'm thankful for cloud-hosted VoIP. It has been a tremendously positive move for our company.

Jive has been great in not only allowing us to move offices without any downtime, but to also easily set up remote offices and keep the costs extremely low. It has great features and functionality, and we would not look anywhere else for this kind of product.

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.

When we email or call Jive support we get a quick response and a quick resolution to our problem or request. We have not yet been disappointed by Jive's support whereas we were constantly disappointed by our previous company. You will find their support personnel knowledgeable, organized, and capable. Our previous provider usually took multiple calls and escalations for the simplest requests or problems to be resolved

We changed from a landline (horrible and expensive) to Verizon One Talk (WORLD'S WORST PRODUCT) to Vonage (GIANT DISASTER) to Jive. Jive not only met all of our needs but exceeded our expectations with the services we receive. We could not have had a better process for set up; it actually worked like it was supposed to and gave us more than what we needed!

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.

RingCentral was hands down the most convoluted, confusing and difficult to use phone system out there we've experienced. Not only was it hard to use, it was the most expensive and we found their reporting was completely wrong. Not only was it wrong, the errors in reporting were a known issue that had not been corrected in over two years that I had been following it.
Nextiva was a fine system and had really great reporting. Their on-boarding was good and it was relatively easy to use in setting up. The PBX was good (Jive's is better) but its ultimate downfall was the app. It never did function correctly the entire time we were with Nextiva. Ultimately we had to leave Nextiva and go to Jive simply because of the app functionality. However, now we're very glad we did as we have better service and pay less than we did with Nextiva.

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.
Artur Bittencourt | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoToConnect (formerly Jive)

  • Significant savings over hosted PBX with PRI lines. Add in service contracts, software maintenance, online meeting services and the cost savings increases even more.
  • Previously we shared online video conferencing accounts. We no longer have to do that and deal with the confusion of juggling shared accounts
  • We now have internal extension dialing. Something we did not have previously
  • Jive was flexible and offered incentives to use them as your phone carrier
