3CX Gets High Grades at Jacksboro Independent School District

Jacksboro featured imageLONDON, UK and JACKSBORO, TEXAS – 24 AUGUST 20163CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications System, has enabled Jacksboro Independent School District (ISD) to cut communications costs and to implement advanced call management — 3CX’s cutting-edge technology also helped the school district to retain important federal funding.

Maintenance Costs Drastically Reduced
The school district needed to upgrade its communications system to comply with federal funding requirements, but Director of Technology/Support Services Brett Thomas also wanted to cut calling costs, reduce overhead and maintenance expenses, and to improve call management. Thomas chose 3CX Hosted PBX, working with Fort Worth, Texas-based 3CX Partner Austen Consultants, and it slashed calling costs with IP Telephony by 60 percent, got rid of all extra maintenance costs, drastically reduced the number of DID rentals, and enabled IVR and prioritized call hunting.

3CX’s advanced technology also qualified the school district to retain its federal funding.

Jacksboro ISD Director of Technology/Support Services Brett Thomas said:

“3CX has allowed Jacksboro ISD to migrate to an affordable VOIP solution. We could no longer afford the fork-lift upgrades and continual costs of licence changes. 3CX was great to install and we were able to repurpose all of our existing VOIP phones. Our integration partner, Austen Consultants, provided great platform design and implementation solutions.”
