3CX TELEPHONE SYSTEM FOR SCHOOLS, ACADEMIES & UNIVERSITIES
The perfect system for multiple sites and users
How it Works
3CX is an open-standards, software IP phone system that works with popular IP Phones and SIP trunks whether on-premise or in the cloud.
Affordable, Easy to Install and Manage
Add the features you need and only for the people who need it.
We don’t tie you into a long contract to try out our extra advanced features. All add-ons are added per user on a 30-day rolling contract. This means that you can provide the features that you want to the people who need it. If things change in the future you can add more features or remove those you aren’t using anymore. We know our phone system is great so we want your experience of it to be as rich as possible without tying you in knots.
On-Premise – On Appliance or Virtualized
You decide where to run 3CX – run it on an existing server using Hyper V or VMware. Smaller installations can run on a low-cost Phone System appliance from Intel NUC, Shuttle, Zotac Zbox & Gigabyte. Easily move your System to another server or into the cloud, using built-in backup and restore.
- Run on a low cost MiniPC PBX appliance
- Virtualize with Vmware or Hyper V
- Easily scale your installation
In the Cloud – with YOUR Cloud Provider
Whether in the cloud or on-premise – you are in control. Self-host on popular cloud providers offering standard Linux VPS. Pay a low monthly fee per system rather than an inflated price per extension and stay away from long term contracts.
“3CX is the best price performance option. The phone system allows you to create almost any configuration you need, starting from a simple interactive voice response and ending with a complete system with customised call flows. “
Kaspars Bergs, Infrastructure Department Manager, 4Finance
