LONDON, UK, 11 January 2018 – 3CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications system, today announces that the Huntingdon Town Council in Cambridgeshire, UK has completed the successful deployment of its IP PBX system. The birthplace of famed political leader Oliver Cromwell and traditional market town was chartered in 1205 and is now home to around 25,000 inhabitants.
Although large enough to require a significant level of support for its public services, the small town’s budget forced the council to seek alternatives to their costly, outdated phone system. Although they needed to seek out a more cost effective solution, the council still required a high-performing system with features that would enable council members to communicate efficiently. Additionally, the council’s previous phone system had no support which resulted in numerous occurrences of downtime. To address these concerns, Huntingdon Town Council turned to 3CX for a more modern communications solution.
“We wanted a more cost-effective, cheaper and more manageable service. The 3CX system allows staff to program out of office responses, leverage virtual assistant capabilities and various other hand functions. It will also save the Council money on telecommunications. We also have the benefit of ongoing support from 3CX partner CNS in the event that any issues were to arise.” – Kate Yerbury, Huntingdon Town Council, Spokesperson
The installation was carried out by 3CX partner CNS in a matter of hours and has allowed the council to become more productive, efficient and modern governing body.
