3CX, the international telecommunications company who develops Windows-based PBX software, has announced its selection as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. 3CX has been added to the list due to its product, 3CX Phone System.
3CX Phone System for Windows drew praise for providing a high-value, low-cost VoIP IP PBX that’s software-based and provides unified communications. It uses the Open SIP Standard, meaning that 3CX Phone System is easy to manage and works with any SIP IP phones. 3CX runs on a standard Windows computer and can be virtualized. It is much cheaper to purchase and scale when compared with proprietary phone systems. For instance, adds and moves can be done in seconds with the 3CX web interface. Being an IP-based PBX means that there’s no need for separate wiring as all phones use the existing computer network.
Businesses also save money with 3CX on their telephone administration costs, as it works 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 gives an excellent opportunity for resellers to leverage 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. Numerous free partner training events held worldwide each year and direct access to the 3CX Support Team assists 3CX Partners so that they can, in turn, assist their customers.
