3CX Voice Application Designer Allows Building Of Powerful Voice Solutions With Point And Click Ease

3CX today announced the availability of 3CX Voice Application Designer (VAD), a tool that allows companies to easily create powerful voice based solutions that automate everyday business processes and thus save time and improve customer service. Until now, building Voice Applications required code and therefore was a complex and expensive task.

By replacing code with drag and drop, the whole process of designing, deploying and testing a voice application has been immensely simplified and is now within reach for many more businesses. For example, 3CX VAD can create a voice application that queries the caller for a customer number, then validates this number against a database and routes the call based on customer type. A repetitive task can be eliminated and valuable agent time is freed up which accelerates the process of helping a customer.

How it works

3CX VAD itself is a graphical tool that allows you to put together the various components/decisions of a voice application by dragging and dropping ‘building blocks’. To create menus with caller options and actions, a user just drags one or more building blocks onto the design window and configures them accordingly. Once done, 3CX VAD outputs a VXML script that can be deployed on 3CX Phone System for Windows.

Ready Application Building blocks

3CX VAD comes out of the box with a s e l e c t i o n of components or ‘building blocks’ that can be used in an application. Some of these building blocks include: Playback, User input, Record, Disconnect, Transfer, Database Access, Send Email, File management, Code execution, Web interaction, Socket client and more. With the inbuilt debugger, a user can troubleshoot a voice application by stepping through the application.

Availability & pricing

A Free edition is available with a reduced s e t of Application Building blocks. The commercial edition of 3CX VAD is available at an introductory price of  1495 euros or $1995. In addition, upgrade insurance is available for a nominal fee of 1 euro / 1$ until year end. 3CX VAD can be downloaded here:
http://www.3cx.com/downloads/3CXVAD2.msi.

The manual is available at this link: 
http://www.3cx.com/manual/3CXVADManual2.pdf

Evaluation / Community support is available through the dedicated 3CX VAD forums at:http://www.3cx.com/forums/3cx-voice-application-designer-vad-27/

RE/MAX Saves More Than $80,000 By Switching To 3CX

The RE/MAX Eastside Brokers Inc. and RE/MAX Metro Realty Inc. brokerages have just switched their telephony provider to 3CX and are reaping the benefits of a streamlined phone system for Windows which was inexpensive and easy to install.

RE/MAX provides training and technology to real estate agents via two offices and hundreds of staff spread across the Pacific North West. As these award-winning brokerages deal with up to 50 simultaneous calls from clients as well as 400 DID’s, they needed a sophisticated yet easy-to-use VoIP PBX system which would deliver value for money in a recession stricken economy.

After searching for quotes from many different companies and software providers, RE/MAX IT manager Dustin T. Adam found that using 3CX could make the company a massive annual saving of $20,000. This was on top of the even greater one-off installation saving conservatively estimated at $80,000.

Dustin said: “I started looking for a replacement to our aging telecommunications infrastructure and, like all good managers doing research, received quotes from a number of different companies and vendors.

“The average price for a replacement infrastructure, including all the desk phones, was nearly $100,000 or more. Doing most of the design and implementation myself along with Summit Services, a 3CX Premium partner, that cost was somewhere around $20,000. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to work out which was the better option.”

3CX is an excellent choice for SMB clients in these difficult economic times because it provides a number of different cost savings. For instance, RE/MAX was able to cut costs by unifying the phone systems for its two offices in Bellevue and Seattle. Another advantage of 3CX was increased mobility as the system allows RE/MAX staff to do business at all hours of the day and in any location.

3CX also saves on administration time as only one system needs to be administered and no third party is required for programming purposes. Neither will it be expensive to further expand the system in future by adding extra phones lines. With 3CX the process is much easier than traditional or proprietary PBX.

3CX Phone System Gets Chatty With Instant Messaging Feature

3CX today announced a new version of its popular VoIP PBX for Windows, 3CX Phone System v8.0. With the new instant messaging feature, 3CX Phone System becomes a complete VoIP Unified Communications Solution. Other new features include improved IP phone management & provisioning, integrated soft phone, find me follow me and support for the new low cost Cisco SMB phones. 3CX has also expanded its PSTN connectivity options by supporting the new low cost Berofix cards.

“3CX Phone System has gone from strength to strength – it’s now installed in more then 10,000 companies worldwide and version 8 can scale up to 512 simultaneous calls and 2000+ extensions on a single server. The new version increases employee productivity and at the same time reduces TCO because of its easy administration.” said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO “Customers already report significant savings, and with support for lower cost VoIP gateways and the prices of IP phones coming done, ROI will accelerate even further.”

Full CRM integration

Version 8 now includes full integration with Microsoft Outlook & Salesforce.com. Users of the system can automatically launch calls from Outlook without having to enter the number on the phone. All calls are automatically logged for better reporting. Inbound calls can automatically be matched to a customer record based on caller ID.

Improved 3CX Assistant

The 3CX Assistant, a Windows utility that allows desktop call control and shows presence of other users, now includes the ability to trigger recording of a phone call, as well as an integrated corporate and personal phonebook for each launching of calls. It also features an integrated soft phone, and can be used from remote locations.

Improved Call Center features

3CX now boasts advanced Call center features at a fraction of the price of traditional PBX solutions. A ‘Call Barge-in’ feature allows supervisors to literally barge in to calls. A prioritized Hunt Queue strategy allows the order to be determined in which calls should be distributed to agents. With this queue strategy it is possible to do skills based routing. A ‘ring all’ queue strategy was also added.

Mobility

Additional mobility features have been added. Calls forwarded to a mobile can be sent to company voice mail if not answered or refused by the callee, making the call forwarding feature more practical. In addition the web based MyPhone user Portal was extended to include new pages for Outbound/Inbound/Missed calls. The MyPhone portal now also includes a new, easier to use, Call Forwarding interface, as well as an extension monitoring page. Presence of other users, as well as key extension settings, can now be monitored from anywhere in the world and from any operating system!

Euphonix Chooses 3CX Phone System & Polycom Phones As Best Of Breed VoIP PBX Solution

Euphonix, a leading manufacturer of large-format digital audio consoles, media controllers, and peripherals, has provided customers worldwide with trusted broadcast, post, live sound, and music production solutions for over 20 years. As a leader in their audio industry, Euphonix employees value high quality, high definition communications. So when it came to replacing their outdated telephone system, the Euphonix IT team turned to 3CX and Polycom, Inc. [Nasdaq: PLCM] for a state-of-the-art VoIP PBX system.

Tasked with the modernization of the Euphonix phone system, Euphonix’s Director of IT, Andor Izsak, found the offerings of traditional PBX vendors to be cost prohibitive and limited, forcing Izsak to find an alternative.

Izsak began researching IP PBX solutions and quickly realized he did not have the time for an open source Linux solution, where support, timely updates and ongoing product development may be an issue. He required a solution that could run on Microsoft Windows and had tight Windows integration

“I came upon 3CX, downloaded the free software package and was very pleasantly surprised by how quickly and easily I was able to s e t up a small home phone network,” recounts Izsak. “I started talking with 3CX and s e t t l e d on the enterprise package with two years of support. Within a week and a half, I had the basic functionality of the old systems replicated at the new site. Not only was the roll out simple and fast, we saved a substantial amount of money going with 3CX.”

BT Plans Communication Integration To Reduce Mobile Costs For Small Businesses

BT has announced plans to integrate the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System (MVS) technology from Research In Motion (RIM) with BT Communications Complete (based on the Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series platform).

The planned new offering will enable BlackBerry smartphone users to take advantage of Wi-Fi networks in the office for voice calls. The solution enables users to switch from Wi-Fi to cellular networks, even in mid-call, allowing small to medium-sized business to reduce mobile airtime costs and be more productive.

Business users will be able to enjoy all the out-of-the-office conveniences of their BlackBerry smartphone – access to contacts, calls, applications and email anywhere – when they are in the office, but without the usually higher mobile airtime costs.

With features like a single voicemail box, the development will also eliminate the time wasted listening to and answering messages on multiple voicemails – making users easier to contact and potentially giving them quicker response times to customers and colleagues’ queries.

Users can choose to be contacted using just one number and, by incorporating BT’s One Plan Plus into BT Communications Complete, firms can make intra-company calls (including mobile calls) without incurring call-forwarding charges.

“The solution will enable the delivery of unified communications tools for small to medium-sized businesses, which previously only benefited larger firms,” said Bill Murphy, managing director, BT Business. “Technologies that better integrate key business processes, reduce costs and keep workers in touch with customers regardless of location, help firms to operate more effectively and to be in better shape for the upturn when it comes.”

“Small and medium-sized businesses have the same concerns as all of us – driving down costs and delivering a better customer experience. Unified communications can support those two objectives. The new service will bring together the strengths of all three companies – Cisco, BT and RIM – to deliver a great offer for companies of all sizes,” said Rick Moran, vice president of marketing, Cisco.

About BT
BT is one of the world’s leading providers of communications solutions and services operating in 170 countries. Its principal activities include the provision of networked IT services globally; local, national and international telecommunications services to our customers for use at home, at work and on the move; broadband and internet products and services and converged fixed/mobile products and services.

Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) Reports 20% Growth and It Begins International Expansion

The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) (http://www.temia.org), the authoritative voice for the Telecom Expense Management (TEM) industry, today announced that five new companies have joined the association. More new member signings are expected with recent program expansion and a reduction of membership fees that demonstrates the financial strength of TEMIA.

In today’s cost conscious environment, enterprises are actively seeking help from TEM providers. “A TEM provider’s membership in TEMIA should be a strong consideration for any organization evaluating TEM solutions. TEMIA membership indicates thought leadership, an investment in the future of effective TEM solutions, and a long term commitment to the TEM market,” said Al Subbloie president and CEO of Tangoe (http://www.tangoe.com) one of the original founders of TEMIA.

The TEM market is growing as more organizations learn about the opportunity to improve supply chain management for telecom expenses and reduce expenses through optimizing inefficient processes. “TEMIA is ideally positioned to drive adoption of key performance benchmarks and metrics across the industry. We are eager to contribute to that effort in a meaningful way,” said David C. Snow, Vice President, Customer and Field Operations for Cerylion (http://www.cerylion.com).

While many of TEMIA members are competitors, they recognize the value that an association can bring. TEMIA is well positioned to help enterprises and TEM providers by developing industry standards for electronic bonding, electronic billing, and augmenting overall service quality. “TEMIA is the foremost organization leading the efforts of creating awareness for Telecom Expense Management at enterprises. It provides a platform to discuss telecom billing issues and standards. It also provides a framework for members to improve the overall TEM industry,” said Pankaj Gupta (PJ) President and CEO of Amtel. (http://www.amtelnet.com).

TEMIA occupies a niche that does not compete with other analysts or firms that offer educational programs. “We believe that our joining TEMIA is essential to our business future for two reasons: to cooperate with and learn from respected competitors and to work more closely to insure that the TEM industry develops real industry metrics to better service all clients,” said Joseph B. Chopek, President, Avalon Global Solutions Inc. (http://www.avalonglobalsolutions.com)

“The number of providers that offer some form of a TEM or TLM solution keeps growing; end-users need industry standards to assess and evaluate the viability of these solutions. I am encouraged by TEMIA’s accomplishments over the past twelve months towards its mission of developing and promoting industry standards. TEMIA is now well positioned to guide this growing industry for years to come,” said Troy McCracken CEO of Spectrum, Inc. (http://www.3spectrum.com)

The association is also expanding overseas with the recent addition a member with headquarters in France and new signings expected from other firms based in Europe, Latin America, Canada, India, and Asia. “We joined to learn from other companies, share our practices, and help promote TEM standards in Europe,” stated Shahram Sharif, Vice President of Global Strategy and Business Development, for Anatole (http://www.anatole.fr).

“TEMIA is shaping the future of the industry, and we are pleased these organizations have decided to join us in that effort,” said David C. Perdue, TEMIA membership chairman and CEO of Asentinel (http://www.asentinel.com).. “As the authoritative voice for the TEM industry, TEMIA offers companies significant resources and advocacy, while educating potential customers about the value of TEM.”

 

TEMIA, the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association, was founded in late 2006 by the country’s largest Telecom Expense Management (TEM) service providers that cumulatively manage $31 billion of telecom and data spend. TEMIA’s mission is to raise awareness and knowledge of the benefits of TEM solutions, to improve the quality and value of TEM solutions through the development and promotion of industry standards, and to cultivate shared industry knowledge among TEM providers, business partners, telecom service providers, and enterprise clients.

3CX, developer of telecommunications software, rolls out of version 7.0 of 3CX Phone System for Windows

3CX (www.3cx.com) the international developer of telecommunications software has announced the roll out of version 7.0 of 3CX Phone System for Windows. The new version comes with a revamped design aimed at making its already user-friendly Management Console and User Interface even easier to work with; whilst effectively delivering more mobility to users by empowering them to configure their own extensions with advanced call handling rules based on caller ID and time of call.

Nick Galea, CEO at 3CX said that these improvements are building on the company’s strategy to deliver a software-based IP PBX that is easy to manage and use. “One of the things we discovered from listening to our customers is that VoIP phone system users want more flexibility in managing their incoming calls. By allowing call rules to be configured based on caller ID, time received and type of call, users can break free from the office and have more mobility. For example, after-hour calls from important customers can be routed to a mobile phone, whereas all other calls can go to voice mail” Galea said; adding that with the new call handling rules also come many added functionalities such as a new management console and a new configuration wizard.


Furthermore, 3CX version 7.0 is an example of better Windows integration in an IP PBX environment. “By replacing the use of technologies such as Apache and PHP with IIS and .NET, adding support for PBX virtualization in Hyper V, resolving inbound calls to MS Outlook contacts, and incorporating Windows management tools for better monitoring, we are taking a step forward towards further integration of 3CX Phone System with Microsoft Windows”, added Nick Galea.

3CX Phone System for Windows allows businesses to completely break free from the restrictions of expensive hardware-based, proprietary phone systems. It also ships with many other enterprise-level features that help businesses enjoy substantial productivity and efficiency gains.

Key new features of 3CX Phone System for Windows version 7.0

  • Revamped Web Management Console and User Interface
  • Added support for running as a virtual instance in Hyper V
  • New configuration wizard
  • Advanced call forwarding and call queue rules
  • Resolve inbound calls to MS Outlook contacts
  • Support for Sangoma cards
  • Integration of Microsoft Web server, .NET and Windows management tools
  • .NET API
  • Optimized system performance to handle 50,000+ calls per day

One Free edition and four Commercial editions: Mini, Small Business, Pro and Enterprise

3CX Phone System is available in five editions. The Free edition can handle up to 4 simultaneous calls, whereas, the Commercial editions have a more extensive feature set and concurrent call capacity that can be expanded with upgrade packs. A detailed edition comparison table can be found on http://www.3cx.com/phone-system/edition-comparison.html.

“The power, simplicity and security of Mac OS X and hardware innovations such as the built-in iSight cameras in most of our Macs make it easy for companies like Skype to create exciting new products and features for Mac users,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “We’re thrilled that Skype is offering its brand new call-transfer feature to the Mac community first.”

Beyond the exclusive call-transfer feature, Skype for Mac 2.6 incorporates a number of Skype features that were previously only available on other platforms:

joining public chats
chat typing indicator: see when others are writing a message
Skype Prime: call a premium-service provider and pay for their advice and knowledge with Skype credit
automatic updates: get new features and updates without having to go to Skype’s website
DTMF tones for automatic answering services available also during Skype-to-Skype calls

Other improvements include tweaks in the way Skype handles birthday reminders and other notifications.

Skype for Mac 2.6 is available for download at skype.com. To use Skype, a broadband internet connection is needed.
