Annual telephony costs reduced by 30% with 3CX Phone System
LONDON and VIENNA, 7 March 2013 — 3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, today announced the successful installation and operation of 3CX Phone System at METO FENIX Handels GmbH. 3CX Phone System replaces the company’s limited Siemens Hicom PBX, and is now managing 6,500 calls per month for METO FENIX, which has seen a 30 per cent drop in its annual telephony costs.
METO FENIX offers retailers innovative solutions for product pricing, showroom advertising, shelf management, shopping convenience and smart and secured merchandising. Even though the company provides its customers with cutting-edge technology solutions, its Siemens Hicom PBX was out of date, its technical options were limited, and Siemens wasn’t delivering updates and new features. METO FENIX wanted a Windows VoIP PBX that would deliver enterprise mobility and Unified Communications to its 26-member team.
METO FENIX selected 3CX Phone System, the most reliable, flexible VoIP PBX on the DACH market. CEO Ilija Medic decided 3CX Phone System was the best long-term solution for METO FENIX because it’s feature-rich, because 3CX releases an updated version of 3CX Phone System every year and because its pricing is transparent. The installation and configuration was completed quickly and without disturbing day-to-day operations at METO FENIX. The company is now using one SIP Trunk line and two ISDN lines with a Beronet Berofix 2T0 VoIP Gateway and 40 Yealink T28.
3CX Phone System gives the METO FENIX team professional call center features at an affordable price – this includes call pickup, call forwarding, queues, group ringing, hunt groups, auto attendant, inbound and outbound call routing, a softphone option and call logging and reporting. When calls are received, if they aren’t taken immediately, 3CX Phone System places them in a queue and notifies staff members about priority calls and wait times. Customers in a queue can disengage from a call and still retain their position, and if a call can’t be taken and is routed to voicemail, 3CX Phone System sends an email notification to the user’s mailbox.
3CX Phone System also brings METO FENIX a complete suite of Unified Communications features. The company’s employees now enjoy conferencing, drag and drop call transfer and instant messaging, and they can see each other’s presence on the PBX. METO FENIX is also now officially a mobile enterprise, thanks to 3CXPhone for 3CX Phone System. The company’s teleworkers have been perfectly integrated into the METO FENIX PBX, and employees who meet with customers offsite can take calls on their Android phones as if they were seated at their desks. The results of this integration are improved business processes and a 30% reduction of the company’s yearly telephony costs. The complete case study is available here.
3CX Phone System leaves nothing to be desired. It’s an easy and flexible Microsoft-based solution that integrates perfectly into our existing infrastructure and totally fits our needs. Its range of features is excellent and technically up to date. It’s a highly professional communications solution that is surprisingly easy to use and supports our business processes – I administer the system myself, and when I receive updates, I can install them quickly and easily. The on-going development of 3CX Phone System continues to satisfy us across the board. – Ilija Medic, founder and owner of METO FENIX
