Three main reasons why companies should use 3CX WebMeeting

According to Epson and the Centre of Economics and Business Research, on average workers are spending more than two hours weekly in meetings. Add to that the extra time spent when travelling is required and also calculate the costs on fuel, plane tickets and accommodations. Who’s really paying for all that, and how do you calculate ROI???? With Video Conferencing you can save time and money while increasing your company’s productivity and performance.

Video Conferencing Saves Time

More work gets done in less time when workers don’t have to travel and leave their office. Adopting a video conferencing software such as 3CX WebMeeting, employee productivity and efficiency will be enhanced and company performance will be greatly improved. Almost instantly, employees can attend online meetings and get in touch with their clients and partner organisations from all around the world. Video conferences can be done in as little as 20 minutes and help avoid lengthy and pointless meetings.

Video Conferencing Saves Money

Whether employees are travelling by plane or driving to a certain destination the prices on plane tickets and fuel are significantly high. Additionally, more costs occur from insurance, accommodations, meals and mobile calls during their travels. In the end companies are left with a hefty bill for a single employee attending a meeting. Video conferencing will reduce travelling thus saving the company a sufficient amount of money.
Video Conferencing increases productivity and performance.

Video Conferencing increases Productivity & Performance

Video conferencing allows flexibility in meetings. It can happen anytime from anywhere with internet capabilities. Communications are made easier between co-workers thus boosting their team’s performance. In addition, video conferencing can also be used to keep in touch with clients and partner organisations on a regular basis. Key features such as desktop sharing can make online meetings fun and interesting. Users can share presentations, videos and explain project progresses while demonstrating them to key clients and partners thus improving relationships as well.

What is more, video conferencing can be used for recruitment. Regardless of location, companies can hire the best talent from anywhere in the world, since communications are made free and global through video conferencing.

Gateways – Still a Necessity

Even though VoIP is very popular, many businesses still prefer to use their existing phone lines. Some businesses may need their VoIP phone system integrated with their existing telephony equipment and fax. There is no other way to achieve this without using a VoIP gateway.

beroNet gateways are known for their high quality standards and provide 3CX Phone System users with the ability to virtualize 3CX Phone System with Hyper-V or VMware. In the event of hardware failure, 3CX Phone System continues to run and processing usage is reduced. For businesses that want to leverage SIP trunks and break free from their proprietary PBX but at the same time use their existing phone lines, beroNet gateways are the ideal solution.

3CX Named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

3CX, international telecommunications developer of Windows-based PBX software, has announced that it has been selected as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The list features the most innovative vendors who deliver technology that is easy to use and also generates high margin solutions providers require. 3CX made the annual list due to 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, which means it works with any SIP IP Phones and is easy to manage. 3CX runs on a standard Windows computer and can be virtualized. It is far less expensive to purchase and expand compared to 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 can save money on their telephone administration costs because it works seamlessly with leading VoIP providers and it allows users to make and receive calls via Skype. It improves employees’ productivity with desktop call control presence. 3CX also 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 use their Windows skills to tap into a 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.

“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.” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “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.”

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection of the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team.

3CX CEO Nick Galea 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.”

Now, businesses of all sizes that are using the 3CX Phone System can now communicate more efficiently by directing their outbound calls to mobile phones and landlines around the world through Skype. It will also allow those companies to receive inbound calls from their clients, partners and suppliers who are Skype users.

In addition, through the separate purchase of Skype’s online numbers, a company can receive inbound calls via Skype from business contacts and customers calling from landlines and mobile phones.

Customers can also call a business by using Skype’s Click & Call feature. By adding a Click & Call button to a company’s Web site, email and other online promotions, customers using Skype can call with just a click of a button, making the business easier to reach, as well as providing a free communication between your business and your customers. All Skype calls being received in the 3CX Phone System via the Click & Call button will be handled like any other call, which means call queuing, transferring of calls, making use of the digital receptionist and additional features available with the 3CX Phone System can reduce the barriers to communicating with your business and help increase sales, as your business will be far more accessible to potential and existing customers.

The 3CX Phone System can help improve employee productivity since users can take advantage of Skype Connect™ to call around the world, while also taking full advantage of the additional key features of the 3CX Phone System, such as call switching, routing, queuing, call recording and more.
