3CX to the Rescue!

  • The money we save by switching to 3CX has helps us in other areas of our district's budget that directly impacts students.
  • After setting up the system, if we need to add another phone, it is super easy and takes about 5 minutes. Just plug in the phone, assign it an extension, and start using it.
  • Staff training was very minimal. Users can bypass the web portal and just use it via a traditional phone.

  • It has saved us a lot of money
  • It has saved us a lot of time. We make changes directly to phones, add extensions, etc. easily in the web-based cpanel.
  • We can add internal phone extensions with needing an actual phone number.

  • Much lower cost than other PBX options: Our company paid nearly 1/5 the cost of purchasing a hardware-based PBX when we instead switched to 3CX. In either case we would have had to replace all phone hardware, but with 3CX we saved a ton of money on licensing and server hardware.
  • Many locations, one phone system: We were able to tie all of our locations into a single 3CX phone system. This means each location is an extension, allowing call transferring, increased flexibility in auto attendant, and simpler numbers to remember.
  • Elimination of carrier service: With 3CX we were able to replace carrier service at many separate locations with SIP service. This reduced each locations' phone bill from $50 per month to $5 per month.

  • 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.
