3CX Windows based software PBX and Polycom audio quality convince Audio Industry Giant
LONDON, UK and Mountain View, Calif. - Sep 07, 2009 : 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 So when it came to replacing their outdated telephone system, the Euphonix IT team turned to 3CX and Polycom, Inc. [Nasdaq: PLCM] for a state-of-the-art VoIP PBX system.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 set up a small home phone network,” recounts Izsak. “I started talking with 3CX and settled 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.”
Izsak estimates savings of up to $100,000 in the first 12 months of use and anticipates the new phone system paying for itself in reduced operating costs within a year. Izsak said that they plan to implement the same Polycom/3CX VoIP solution in New York, London and Tokyo offices.
Euphonix is based in Mountain View, Calif. and has offices in Los Angeles, New York, London and Tokyo. Founded in 1988, Euphonix has satisfied more large-format digital console users worldwide than any other manufacturer and continues to redefine the state of the art with its new slim-line controller products.
