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.

Provide Support Live Chat

Provide Support Live Chat is a very user friendly tool. It allows my Customer Service Team to perform their daily duties and easily access live chats when needed. It's really great because we can ask for contact information so we can research questions if needed and then reply back in a timely manner. Our customers and potential customers can always have access to a live person.

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.

Provide Support Live Chat

  • Does not allow us to flag a particular 'consumer' as a scammer.

3CX Phone System 6.5

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.

Provide Support Live Chat

We elected to continue with Provide Support Live Chat because it was more economical compared to Salesforce's option. While Salesforce contained more integration options, we did not see the need to dramatically increase our costs just to have direct integration with Salesforce records and accounts. We haven't evaluated other options since we are happy with Provide Support Live Chat.

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.

  • I was not a part of the business decision to start using Provide Support Live Chat. I have been with the company for 6 years and I can say it is well worth it.
