Why choose The Technology Group
3CX features overview
The great thing about a 3CX Phone System is that it doesn’t require a standard hardware box like traditional phone systems. Traditional PBXs or indeed black box appliances are difficult to scale. Add more extensions and you are hit by licensing costs, underpowered hardware or you run out of ports. Not so with 3CX – add extensions, lines, features at no cost and avoid dreaded PBX replacements! By virtualising with 3CX you can get easy backup and redundancy to boot with Hyper V or Vmware!
Take your extension anywhere
3CX includes clients for smartphones and Mac or Windows laptops that allow users to use their office extension from anywhere, seamlessly integrated as if they were in the office. Not only are all calls to the office free of charge, but employees can leverage one single number and make a professional impression.
