Unlock your workplace with Hosted 3CX

Due to the current climate with the Covid-19 pandemic there has been a monumental rise in the requirement to enable flexible remote working, business continuity and collaboration to service your workforce, current customers, and future prospects.

The benefits of using Hosted 3CX

Microsoft Teams is one of the popular platforms, however while Teams may offer a competent set of collaboration features, one area that it does lack in is voice. 3CX offers a powerful yet cost effective Microsoft Teams alternative and at a fraction of the cost. So users can call, collaborate, chat and more with a comprehensive solution that brings together all of these features onto one platform allowing your workforce to continue to function no matter where they are physically located!


Along with easy to use collaboration tools such as chat, fax to email, web conferencing, website live chat and more, 3CX offers advanced call features including queues, ring groups, contact centre features, reporting, and click to call. Microsoft Teams voice is available as an add-on feature in 12 regions only and does not include more advanced features needed to maintain satisfactory customer experience.

The per user pricing model that Teams is based on equates to monthly costs that quickly add up. Businesses looking for voice as a part of the package will find themselves forking out even more cash for a calling add-on and call plan. 3CX’s licensing structure is simple and transparent, with no add-ons for the features you need the most. Simply select the license type you need along with the size based on simultaneous calls, not users.

  • No per user pricing
  • Unlimited extensions
  • No add-on fees
  • Fully integrated call centre features (Pro/Ent)


Improve the customer experience with a fully unified contact centre solution. 3CX enables employees to work more efficiently by streamlining communications and offers simple integration with a wide range of CRM, ERP and accounting systems.
