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.

Using LiveChat for the type of company I work for (inside sales - remote) is wonderful. Since we are not seeing our clients face to face, the chat feature on our website is amazing for helping assist others.

The only time it becomes a hassle is when the current client/chatter wants a direct call from the person they are chatting with. We try not to double dip in being logged into both the phone and chat at the same time, but we typically are able to resolve the issue without any pains.

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.

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.

  • Making it easier to find archived chats (having the option for just one's self)
  • Color scheme changes - maybe some darker colors, not as bright/whites
  • A different way of transferring to dept's and not just giving a direct transfer option as the first option.

3CX Phone System 6.5
Based on 2 answers
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.

They all serve different purposes but LiveChat is the only platform that's actually just for chatting rather than for communication amongst remote employees. All systems work together though and for that, our teams run smoothly and communication is amazing!

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.

Live2Support

  • Helps us keep up with our current customers and resolve their issues ASAP
  • Allows for new sales to come through easily. Makes it easier to explain the product and show as we go along.
  • API's allow for a ticket to be created with each chat (into our CRM) and allows us to keep track of the chatters throughout the day and log any information we may have missed.
