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.

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.

Noble Systems

  • Local control: the Noble Maestro platform, once you learn it, enables you to control your call center right from your desk. You can add, delete, and skill users, you can build all of your IVR flows and change them as necessary (like for holiday closures, etc)
  • User interface design: I built the pop-up windows for each queue, and was able to design them to contain quick reference information for how to handle calls, and build an order number capture module from the IVR to the agent. In other words, I could prompt the customer to punch in their order number, then display it to the agent.
  • Technical support - their support group was easy to reach and easy to work with.

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

  • Selfishly, I would love for Noble to provide their own instance of gateways for SMS and Email. This is one area where additional vendors are required, to serve as the gateway to launch texts and emails. This opens opportunities for breaks that require additional resources to trace the root of the issue.
  • Some of Noble product offerings require extensive start-to-finish resources. While there is not much room for improvement, end-user should know some products require much more upfront work than others. Prerequisite courses and questionnaires are almost always required, along with on-site training. It should be made very clear, Noble has these requirements to absolutely ensure end-user are proficient in taking full advantage of the product, once released to Support.
  • Post-Upgrade testing is time-consuming, especially if the number of products utilized is extensive. While Noble deploys most all upgrades to a DEV environment and engages multiple resources when deploying to PROD, ensuring all products don't resort to "Default" isn't 100%. End-User is required to complete significant testing, too, but there are opportunities for misses, that may result in production impact. Upgrades, with testing, could take 4-6 hours.

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.

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.

We utilize Noble's Enterprise Support, offering us 24/7 access. Additionally, with Enterprise Support we engage with Level II Support Technicians and no-hassle escalation. With Enterprise Support, we also have a dedicated Account Manager who conducts weekly/bi-weekly support calls to discuss open tickets and upgrade opportunities. With Enterprise Support, we have the ability to select our window for upgrades, to include weekends.

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.

Noble offered a lot of functions for the lowest price. The QA component alone was a big selling point, along with the PCI compliance of their remote server locations. CCX was premise-based and was bulletproof. It never went down, its UI never had problems, and we never dropped calls because of it. Verint is a better QA program and has many more bells and whistles, but is very expensive compared to Noble.

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.

Noble Systems

  • Positive: it gave us a cloud-based call center with recorded calls and a QA platform, which was a great step up from what we had
  • Positive: it allowed for flexibility when we needed to expand to an outsourced location for the holidays.
  • Negative: the pricing equation was difficult to understand, and the sales rep, although knowledgeable, was not very transparent and we had several surprises in pricing after signing our agreement. There was a point right after signing the contract with them that the CFO and I sought to back out due to this.
  • Negative: the call center did not run smoothly. I spent approximately 20% of my time for almost 2 years troubleshooting problems with the system and managing fixes. There was always somebody in the call center with a "noble issue".
