The ability to work remotely is no longer a nice-to-have but rather a must-have for any business communication strategy. We’re here to help support you in developing the right solution for your partners and their businesses.

The world is now more connected than ever with the introduction of virtual work spaces and social media. Consequently many businesses are now looking towards solutions to allow employees to work productively from home. With 3CX’s Unified Communications tools, you too can guarantee day-to-day operations can continue to be met, even out of office.

Unified Comms

To maintain operations, users need to access all the same data as they would being in the office.

Regardless of your company size, 3CX’s unified comms solution helps to improve collaboration, boost productivity, increase mobility and enhance the customer experience.

  • See the status of your colleagues
  • Instant chat
  • Live website chat
  • Web client
  • Smart phone apps
  • Web conferencing (number of seats available dependent on license type)

Interoperability

In addition to utilising 3CX as a softphone, the solution allows for a broad range of interoperable products such as; Snom, Fanvil, Yealink, EPOS/Sennheiser. Allowing users to be able to make use of phone systems and its features on their preferred device, which of course can still be used in a home office.

With support for integration with many of the world’s leading platforms and CRM systems including MS Exchange, Salesforce, Microsoft Outlook, Office 365 and Zendesk, 3CX can also link inbound calls with customer records to maximise agent productivity.
