IT communication is vital for the workflow of companies. Emerging technologies constantly offer new ways for businesses to reduce costs, increase flexibility and streamline operations. The 3CX phone system allows you to have a full-featured phone system that includes call queues, built-in video calls, web conferencing and more. All of these features can be used remotely via mobile and browser apps. 3CX is also scalable, easy to manage, affordable and compatible with popular IP phones and SIP trunks, making it an ideal solution for growing businesses.
How Does the 3CX Phone System Work?
3CX is an open-platform phone system that offers complete unified communications out of the box. This means you can use one system to efficiently manage calls, set up queues and respond to customer messages and requests from multiple channels and platforms, including Facebook, SMS and website live chat. 3CX can be set up for use on-premise or be hosted in the cloud. Remote work is made easy by simply using office extensions on iOS and Android apps.
Whether you’re using the web client, smartphone app, Windows app or a desk phone, 3CX provides one place for all business communication. Colleagues, clients or customers can all use the tools provided by 3CX to collaborate, call, chat and more. Co-workers can sync up to increase efficiency and productivity in the office as well as benefiting from inbuilt contact centre tools to greater customer satisfaction.
