3CX Named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

3CX, international telecommunications developer of Windows-based PBX software, has announced its' selection as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who deliver technology that is easy to use and also generates the high margins solution providers require.

3CX Phone System is the product that saw 3CX make the list, drawing praise for offering a high-value, low-cost VoIP IP PBX that’s software-based and provides unified communications. By being Open SIP Standard, it is simple to manage and it works with any SIP IP phones. 3CX Phone System runs on Windows and can be virtualized. It has a low cost when compared with proprietary phone systems. Being an IP-based PBX means that there’s no need for separate wiring as all phones use the existing computer network, saving yet more expenditure.

3CX saves businesses money on their telephone administration costs as it works seamlessly with leading VoIP providers and allows users to make and receive calls via Skype. It improves employees’ productivity with desktop call control presence. 3CX delivers mobility to employees by allowing them to work from home via remote extensions.

The 3CX Channel Program is open to all IT and telecoms solutions providers and allows resellers to use their Windows skills so as to tap into a completely new market. 3CX Partners generate profitable recurring income as they resell 3CX products and their own services to existing customers, whilst also targeting new customers. The roll-out involves software / hardware sales and provides the opportunity for consultancy.

Benefits of the 3CX Partner Program include access to free products and technology. There are also many free partner training events held worldwide each year and resellers get direct access to the 3CX Support Team.

"Enabling customers with the tools and strategies to solve real business problems has always been a priority to solution providers. The market has grown increasingly competitive over the years; so too has the demand for innovative, channel-friendly technologies. From the cloud to semantic technology, this year’s list of Emerging Technology Vendors highlights the emphasis on innovation and ease of use that has been the hallmark of any successful channel offering," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director of Everything Channel.

Nick Galea, the CEO of 3CX said, "We are proud to have been included in this year’s CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list. 3CX continues to lead the market for Windows based IP PBX solutions. Companies are switching to 3CX Phone System as it allows them to make huge savings on their monthly telecoms bills and provides rich features. 3CX is a 100% channel company, providing an excellent opportunity for IT specialists to resell a high-value, low-cost PBX solution, as well as bundle in hardware and consultancy services to their existing and new customers. 3CX provides all the tools needed for our channel partners to be successful.”
