Discover the 6 Benefits of Switching to a 3CX VoIP Phone System
Kim is the director of a local retailer. The organisation consists of a small network of shops with a central headquarters that acts as the hub of the business. To improve agility, mobility and productivity Kim is seeking to upgrade their current traditional phone system. They require a telephone system that can support communications across the organisation but, at the same time, offers features that allow them to embrace hybrid working.
Another key factor is that the aging Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is due to be switched off in December 2025. This means that organisations will need to upgrade to Voice over Internet Protocol telephony (VoIP) beforehand for continued seamless communications. For Kim it makes good sense to start upgrading the telephone systems sooner rather than later to help minimise disruption.
While researching potential vendors and systems, Kim has seen a lot of positive feedback about 3CX VoIP communications. Could this phone system be as beneficial as publicised? Read along to discover more about 3CX and how it could increase your organisation’s performance while saving money on call costs.
What is a 3CX VoIP phone system?
3CX is an affordable VoIP software-based telephone system. Put simply, VoIP is a phone system that places and receives phone calls over the internet. Ideal for small and medium organisations, 3CX can be deployed either on premise, in the cloud or on Windows or Linux systems.

Offering potential cost savings on communications, plus scalability and flexibility, it’s ideal for future-proofing your organisation and embracing hybrid working.
Why are organisations switching to 3CX VoIP phone systems?
The rise in hybrid working means organisations now require software and phone systems that offer anytime, anywhere access. With 3CX VoIP phone systems there are a whole host of benefits for organisations looking to support hybrid working. Here are the six main advantages of upgrading.
> Professional communications
