3CX Voice Application Designer allows building of powerful Voice Solutions with point and click ease

London, 5 November 2009 – 3CX today announced the availability of 3CX Voice Application Designer (VAD), a tool that allows companies to easily create powerful voice based solutions that automate everyday business processes and thus save time and improve customer service. Until now, building Voice Applications required code and therefore was a complex and expensive task.

By replacing code with drag and drop, the whole process of designing, deploying and testing a voice application has been immensely simplified and is now within reach for many more businesses.

For example, 3CX VAD can create a voice application that queries the caller for a customer number, then validates this number against a database and routes the call based on customer type. A repetitive task can be eliminated and valuable agent time is freed up which accelerates the process of helping a customer.

Real estate brokerage RE/MAX saves more than $80,000 by switching to 3CX

1 comments

The RE/MAX Eastside Brokers Inc. and RE/MAX Metro Realty Inc. brokerages have just switched their telephony provider to 3CX and are reaping the benefits of a streamlined phone system for Windows which was inexpensive and easy to install.

RE/MAX provides training and technology to real estate agents via two offices and hundreds of staff spread across the Pacific North West. As these award-winning brokerages deal with up to 50 simultaneous calls from clients as well as 400 DID’s, they needed a sophisticated yet easy-to-use VoIP PBX system which would deliver value for money in a recession stricken economy.

After searching for quotes from many different companies and software providers, RE/MAX IT manager Dustin T. Adam found that using 3CX could make the company a massive annual saving of $20,000. This was on top of the even greater one-off installation saving conservatively estimated at $80,000.

Dustin said: “I started looking for a replacement to our aging telecommunications infrastructure and, like all good managers doing research, received quotes from a number of different companies and vendors.

“The average price for a replacement infrastructure, including all the desk phones, was nearly $100,000 or more. Doing most of the design and implementation myself along with Summit Services, a 3CX Premium partner, that cost was somewhere around $20,000. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to work out which was the better option.”

3CX is an excellent choice for SMB clients in these difficult economic times because it provides a number of different cost savings. For instance, RE/MAX was able to cut costs by unifying the phone systems for its two offices in Bellevue and Seattle. Another advantage of 3CX was increased mobility as the system allows RE/MAX staff to do business at all hours of the day and in any location.

3CX also saves on administration time as only one system needs to be administered and no third party is required for programming purposes. Neither will it be expensive to further expand the system in future by adding extra phones lines. With 3CX the process is much easier than traditional or proprietary PBX.

Why a Windows based PBX trumps a Linux based appliance or proprietary PBX

3CX releases a Whitepaper explaining the benefits of a windows based phone system over a Linux based appliance or “VoIP enabled” proprietary PBX

London, UK, 21 May 2009 - Companies planning to take advantage of cost savings and productivity increases achieved by using VoIP face a difficult decision what PBX solution to choose. Amongst the options are a Windows based software solution, a Linux based black box style appliance or a “VoIP enabled” proprietary PBX. The whitepaper released today by 3CX titled ‘The top 10 advantages of a Windows based PBX’ details the key benefits of a Windows phone system and explains why customers should shy away from yet another black box solution.

“A Windows based PBX solution is by far the best choice for any company that relies on Windows networks & servers. Hiding the complexity of a Linux based PBX solution in a dedicated appliance or Linux distribution is only a short term solution that will result in a much higher TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) over time. Furthermore, companies will not be able to take full advantage of VoIP and Unified communications because integration possibilities with existing Windows applications will be limited”, said Nick Galea, 3CX.

“VoIP enabled” proprietary PBXs provide only limited VoIP telefooncentrale support and because in most cases they do not adhere to the open SIP standard, customers will be limited in choice of phones, VoIP services and gateway hardware and will not be able to get the full benefit of the voix sur IP ‘revolution’.

The whitepaper for ISDN Telefooncnetrale is available in PDF format from this location: http://www.3cx.com/voip-articles/whitepaper.pdf

Accompanying the whitepaper is a Youtube video presentation highlighting the key points, available here.

3CX Hotel PBX delivers VoIP to Hospitality industry

New 3CX VoIP Phone System for Hotels slashes phone bills using VoIP and eliminates PBX maintenance and expansion costs

London, UK – 6 May 09 – 3CX announced today the availability of 3CX Hotel PBX module, which allows Hotels to replace aging and expensive Hotel PBXs from Mitel, Alcatel, Siemens and others with 3CX Phone System for Windows, a modern software based VoIP IP PBX. The 3CX Hotel module adds important hospitality functions such as support for Check IN/OUT, DND, Room status and Wake up calls. It integrates with leading Hotel Software / Property Management Systems.

“Traditional Hotel PBX vendors have charged a hefty premium for their ability to perform hotel related functions” said Nick Galea, CEO of 3CX. “3CX costs a fraction of a comparable hotel PBX and in addition halves the hotel’s phone bill by allowing the use of VoIP”

Hotels can eliminate Lease Payments

Hotels paying high monthly lease payments for their current PBX can drastically reduce their monthly operating cost by replacing it with 3CX. The cost of outright purchase of 3CX is so low that hotels can earn back the investment in just a few months. Coupled with drastic reductions in the phone bill, 3CX can be an important part of reducing operating costs in these times of economic crisis.

Re use analog phones

Existing Analog phones in the rooms can easily be re-used with the use of low cost FXS gateways, further reducing the initial investment cost. Re-using analog phones also means there is no need to re-wire – existing analog phone points can continue to be used. IP Phones and voip gateways can be used only where it matters – for example in reception. Re-using analog phones also helps the environment by reducing unnecessary brown good wastage.

Wide range of Hotel Software/ Property Management Systems supported

3CX Phone System integrates with leading Hotel Software / Property Management Systems via several interfaces, including Legacy PBX emulation, the Fidelio FIAS protocol as well as support for Comtrol’s Lodging Link middle ware. Other interfaces are easily implemented and available on request. A subset of supported PMS systems includes Agilysys, telefonní ústředna, Autoclerk, Cenium, Maestro for Northwind, Fidelity Hotel Management Systemm, Micros Opera, Brilliant Hotelsoftware, CMS Hospitality Guestcentrix, ResortSuite, Gracesoft, Hotec Expert Hotelier Suite, Hotel Concept, VoIP, WebPMS, Atrium INN client server systems, HSS Hotel Software Systems, Innfinity software systems, ip telefon and InnRoad. A complete list is available here.

3CX Phone System Hotel module is available immediately and starts at €750/$895. More information is available here. An example costing to determine ROI can be found here.
