3CX, a global developer of software-based Unified Communications Solutions, has announced a partnership with CloudCo Partner – a cloud distributor with its services including hosted telephony services and a global network of channel partners. CloudCo Partner will host a channel-exclusive Cloud PBX named 3CX for 3CX Partners around the world.
3CX will be added by CloudCo Partner to its own cloud-based hosting platform. Partners can host their 3CX licenses knowing they are running in a T4 rated data center backed by a 24/7/365 NOC and 99.99 % uptime guarantee.
By providing “great architecture and flexible, customizable delivery options,” hosted 3CX would remove all barriers that have been blocking the hosted PBX market. 3CX in the cloud is a fully virtualized instance, with its own set of dedicated PBX services, as well as completely separate data stores.
“3CX in the cloud is not a multi-account system, it’s a fully-virtualized instance of 3CX Phone System with dedicated PBX services for each customer and complete data separation which sets it apart from old style hosted PBX,” said Nick Galea, CEO of 3CX.
With 3CX in the cloud, customers will have a dedicated PBX “separated from, and unaffected by, other tenants.” In addition, they will have access to all the features of the on-premise version, such as web conferencing, instant chat and presence, offering superior service and greater mobility.
“CloudCo Partner is excited to become a U.S. hosted IaaS distributor for 3CX. Along with an affiliation to 3CX’s largest and longest-standing U.S. distributor 888VoIP, our team has over ten years of experience working with 3CX,” said Mike Evanisko, Press Officer, CloudCo Partner. “Continuing our trend of 3CX focused offerings we have launched our managed 3CX Private Cloud solution which will enable 3CX partners to rapidly and profitably sell 3CX within the growing cloud market.”
3CX, in combination with CloudCo’s hosting services, would offer resellers the following benefits:
- Leaves reseller in complete control of customer account.
- Offers reseller a real-time billing and service dashboard
- Ample scope for sales of add-on services, hardware and integration.
- Ability to offer on-premise or hosted deployment as customer prefers.
- Ability to choose from a large number of supported IP phones
- Ability to integrate mobile devices as alternatives to IP phones.
- Free training and support.
Resellers would also enjoy the increased flexibility as they have the option of buying virtual instances hosted by CloudCo Partner, one by one, month by month with no commitments. This along with the option to purchase purely at wholesale rates and self-manage the servers would allow partners to operate highly scalable and flexible.
With 30,000 customers worldwide, some of the world’s leading companies and organizations use 3CX Phone System, including Boeing, McDonald’s, Hugo Boss, Ramada Plaza Antwerp, Harley Davidson, Wilson Sporting Goods and Pepsi. Maintaining its global presence, 3CX has offices in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Hong Kong, South Africa, Russia and Australia. Visit 3CX on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
