London, UK, October 4 2011 – 3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, has today announced that 3CX Phone System and the 3CX Call Center Module has been installed throughout the 32 sites nationwide of The Pluss Organisation.
Pluss is one of the UK’s largest employment specialists that assist people with learning disabilities, mental health issues, physical disabilities and long term health conditions to find work. With 650 employees across the UK, Pluss wanted to expand their operations but found that doing so with their proprietary Alcatel Omnipcx VoIP PBX would be too expensive. They also required Call Center features and Unified Communications so that mobile employees could work as if they were still in the office. With the experience of near non-existent support from Alcatel and the astronomical costs of outsourcing it, it was also crucial that the new phone system was well supported.
Pluss selected 3CX Phone System because it provided all the features and functionality they required, such as Unified Communications and a professional Call Center module. Pluss were also impressed with the helpful 3CX Support Team and lively 3CX Online Community. They were able to add 270 IP handsets to their set-up at a cost similar to what they had been quoted for just 80 Alcatel handsets.
“We simply couldn’t believe the savings that we would make by installing 3CX Phone System. After researching phone systems extensively, 3CX provided above and beyond what the other PBX providers had to offer, yet at a fraction of the price! We recommend 3CX Phone System to all businesses. You’re not just purchasing a state-of-the-art PBX, but are joining a community that provides support right when you need it” – Pluss.
“We are proud to have been able to assist Pluss in expanding their operations. Using 3CX Phone System and the 3CX Call Center Module has allowed Pluss to streamline their communications between all their sites, call centers and mobile employees.” – Stephen Corrigan, 3CX UK Channel Manager
