    At a time of major budgetary constraints in the Education Sector, 3CX can drastically reduce the school’s outgoings. UK calls are free and Clarion’s commercial model is based on the number of simultaneous calls rather than a per-user/seat charge, which often forces schools to pay more than they should. For infrastructures based in large university environments or multi-building colleges, where you may have many phones around campus but with limited daily use; there is the potential to save many thousands of pounds on line rental and call charges.

    3CX is an open-platform, software VoIP phone system that works with a variety of IP desk phones, softphones or mobile devices. Moving to a VoIP solution means that calls are made and received over your internet connection, removing your reliance on costly and outdated legacy telephone lines.

    It provides all the features and functions of on-premises phone systems and more…. without the need to purchase the expensive hardware. VoIP phone systems such as 3CX offer great functionality and improve the efficiency of features such as call recording, emergency broadcasting, conferencing and more. You have complete freedom of where to install your PBX and which IP phones to use.
