Support Services Organization UFCV Cares for Communications by Switching to 3CX

ufcv chooses 3CX zero downtime pbxLONDON, UK, 28 NOVEMBER 2017 – 3CX, developer of the next-generation software-based Unified Communications system, would like to announce that French support services provider, UFCV, has successfully deployed its innovative VoIP PBX solution at their organizational headquarters and at 25 sites throughout France, with plans to extend to 80. UFCV has been developing innovative programs for France’s children and adults with mental disabilities for over 100 years and now has over 1,000 employees, 5,000 volunteers and 130,000 beneficiaries.

Given the organization’s non-profit status, UFCV’s tight budget lead them to seek out a more modern phone system that could cater to the needs and responsibilities of its day to day operations while allowing them to cut telco costs and save money on admin and maintenance. UFCV’s outdated, analog PBX was proving to be too expensive to maintain and, in addition, could not provide the organization and it’s employees with any additional features or benefits. UFCV’s Director of Information Systems, Christophe Putoud, decided it was time to move to a more modern, software solution and turned to 3CX.

3CX is an all-inclusive telephone system based on an “on-the-go” cost structure: the cost of simultaneous calls, independent of the number of users, which is often the pricing policy’s approach. Moreover, the price of compatible SIP phones is attractive compared to those of proprietors of traditional PBXs. We also wanted a central system that specifically supported Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization and strong integration with Microsoft desktop technologies, making 3CX an easy choice. – Christophe Putoud, Director of Information Systems, UFCV

In working with 3CX partner, Telerys Communication, UFCV was able to conduct their deployment in a matter of hours with zero downtime. Christophe Putoud noted that the organization is now experiencing simplified management of their system and expects to see a ROI in just 1.5 years.
