Program Description:
3CX was founded in 2005 by entrepreneur Nick Galea who saw the need for an open standard software PBX for Microsoft Windows. With 86.7% of businesses using Windows as their operating system, the need for a software-based phone system which runs on Microsoft Windows was evident. With the PBX market being solely proprietary and devoid of any innovation for the past thirty years, businesses were increasingly becoming frustrated as they needed an open standard PBX that would be affordable, easy to use, innovative and software based. 3CX's leading product, 3CX Phone System not only replaces proprietary phone systems, it delivers a complete Unified Communications solution as it's an open standard software based IP PBX which runs on Windows and that can be integrated with other applications running on Windows. By relying on the SIP Standard, 3CX along with its technology partners, snom and Yealink, delivers a future proof, best of breed phone system. 3CX was named a CRN Emerging Vendor in 2011 and 2012 and has been awarded CRN's 5-Star Partner Program rating in 2013. 3CX has also been awarded Windows Server Certification and won the Windowsnetworking.com Gold Award, the Windows IT Pro Editor's Best Award and a Best Buy Award from Computer Shopper.

Program Highlights:
3CX has a partner portal where all leads are directly passed on to 3CX partners in their corresponding countries. 3CX has drastically increased the number of sales and technical trainings it offers to its partners globally in the last 12 months, by actually travelling to each country. Through our partner portal, partners have access to marketing material which they can easily download and use. Our sales team is always available to help 3CX Partners as well as our 24/5 support team. We are continuously uploading articles and how to's on our blog to help our partners and to keep them up to date so they can overcome any objections when they are up against a difficult sales negotiation. Also, 3CX Phone System is open-standard with no vendor lock-in allowing 3CX Partners to choose between a variety of popular IP Phones (snom, Yealink, Fanvil) and Gateways (beroNet, Patton, Welltech) which have passed the interoperability test. 3CX also has supported VoIP Providers which have passed the interoperability testing. With the supported IP Phones, Gateways and VoIP Providers it is much easier for 3CX Partners to sell the ideal solution to their customers at the most convenient and efficient price for both parties.
