Diving & Marine Services Provider Subtech Takes the Plunge with 3CX

subtech multi-site pbxLONDON, UK, 10 April 2018 – 3CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications system, has today announced the deployment of its innovative VoIP PBX solution at the branches of South African company Subtech. Since 1995 Subtech has specialized in providing world class marine services throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. The company offers a wide range of services including offshore diving, salvage, marine towage, pipeline installation and more.

With the company growing rapidly Subtech’s Group IT Manager, Ralph Kerwan, began to see that their Alcatel Lucent phone system was no longer sufficient and was resulting in a lack of communication between the branches. Coupled with high operation costs, Kerwan decided that it was time to upgrade their PBX to something more modern and cost-effective.

“We briefly considered phone systems from Panasonic, Samsung and Telkom. But seeing the proposed functionality from 3CX, and recognizing the flexibility it could bring to our work environment, made the choice clear. 3CX offers a cost-effective, turnkey solution that provides us the ability to remotely roll extensions out to projects at the drop of a hat. And by mostly using the softphones, we were able to slash hardware costs up front too.” – Ralph Kerwan, Group IT Manager, Subtech Group

With Subtech’s operations involving high-risk, high-cost procedures, the company was in need of a PBX that could be deployed and up and running quickly and easily, without incurring any downtime. In working with 3CX partner, 3C Technology, the installation was complete in less than a day and allowed employees to continue without interruption.
