Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"With the reporting feature you can get all the incoming and outgoing call details.""It’s straightforward to set up.""The most valuable features of 3CX Live Chat are the ability to go straight to a call or screen-sharing and creating multiple channels from the same chat widget effectively. The ability to raise a call straight out to the cloud is fantastic, it is really useful. Additionally, it integrates very well with WordPress.""3CX has strong reporting and management features. You can manage the capabilities of a call center with queues and timers. It's a complete solution.""We have not had any bugs or glitches, the solution is stable.""3CX is useful and easy to use. I can talk to my colleagues from anywhere.""The integration with SMS has been helpful. That's how a lot of customers prefer to communicate nowadays. It makes it convenient for the customer to reach us.""It lets you see how many calls you made, the time you called, and how many minutes you spent on the phone."

"Webex's main feature is you get 1,000 participants per meeting by default and can join from 75 meeting units. You don't have to buy additional licenses.""The product is quite secure. Other products, such as Zoom, have had security issues raised in the media.""Screen share is the most valuable feature.""Integrates well with other Cisco solutions.""Webex offers a wide range of useful features.""I have found the most valuable features to be the high quality of the video and the audio. Additionally, the graphical user interface is good and it is easy to use.""The installation was straightforward.""You can configure whatever you want in great detail."

"There should be an option to save some extensions.""Once we establish the system and do the initial configuration, some configurations will be fixed. However, if we need to change those configurations, the option is to do a reinstallation. Otherwise, we cannot do anything.""There are a lot of quality of life things that could be improved. When adding extensions, you need to use the extension import setting, you can't just use an import function to update extensions. You have to delete and recreate the extension, which can have all kinds of unintended consequences.""Reporting and integration are the main challenges, which are at the mid-level or in the enterprise depending on the system that we choose.""I need a robust provider who can help me use Live Chat. Unfortunately, I have to move from one provider to another because they don't have enough capabilities to maintain good service.""Having a video call would be a nice idea.""The solution was simple to install, but the configuration was not as simple. The full installation process took a few days.""You cannot make a group call on 3CX. That feature would make my life easier because I could talk to two suppliers or a supplier and management together. I wouldn't need to end the call and call another person."

More 3CX Live Chat Cons →

"The licensing could be a bit simpler.""Webex support is not good. When we try to open a ticket, it takes approximately 24 hours. With Microsoft, we get support within two or three hours.""The interface could be a bit more user-friendly.""The collaborative features could improve in Webex. There should not be the typical one on one connection that we have had in the past.""My biggest issue with the solution involves its price, which I find to be prohibitive for small governments and modest-sized schools.""I'd like to see a modernized user interface, something a bit more colorful.""They should work to make it simpler.""Everybody these days uses virtual meeting solutions because we're all remote working. It would be a benefit if there were permanent collaboration spaces for projects. For example, the way Teams has its teams folders and shared locations. Webex is missing that feature, or maybe it has it and I'm not aware of it. However, it needs a permanent sharing location for when projects can get stored and can be a collaboration space as opposed to only a meeting space."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable. There are a few license options and we are using an enterprise license."
  • "There aren't any additional costs. With the license I purchased, I have all features that I need. I don't have to buy an add-on or another license."
  • "We used a yearly license depending on the customer's requirements, and the customers did not complain about the pricing."
  • "The price of the solution is in the middle range compared to other solutions. There are different license options available. For example, there is a professional version and an enterprise version, and with the enterprise version, you have the ability to modify the dashboards. You can purchase a license at many different time frame increments, such as monthly, yearly, or two years."
  • "We have purchased an annual license to use 3CX Live Chat. There are different options available, you can pay monthly or yearly. I am completely satisfied with the pricing of 3CX Live Chat, it is cheaper than competitors and it is a better solution."
  • "The price of the solution has been reasonable. We have not had any problems or complaints with the licensing model. We have not reached a point where we need to upgrade. We have all the correct channels."
  • "There is no add-on costing on the standard fees."
  • "3CX sells an annual subscription, but we usually split it out monthly for clients, so they don't see an annual bill for the 3CX licensing, it's just part of their monthly phone bill. As they're paying us for carrier service anyway, we just roll it all together. Your standard phone service would be an additional cost, you either need to maintain a local carrier with POTS lines or PRI or a SIP, or you have to go with a cloud-based SIP."
