3CX Joins Forces with CloudCo Partner
3CX, a developer of next generation software based unified communications solutions, and CloudCo Partner, a provider of hosted telephony services with a global network of channel partners, announced this week that CloudCo Partner will now host 3CX for 3CX Partners globally.
This essentially means that 3CX will be added by CloudCo Partner to its own cloud based hosting platform. With this addition, partners will be able to host their 3CX licenses confidently while knowing that they are running a T4 rated data center backed by a 24/7/365 NOC and 99.99 percent uptime guarantee.
3CX in the cloud is a fully virtualized instance, with its own set of dedicated PBX services, completely separate data stories and customizable delivery options. “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.
According to the announcement, 3CX combined with CloudCo’s hosting services allows resellers to benefit from the market in new ways. The partnership leaves resellers in complete control of customer accounts; offers reseller a real-time billing and service dashboard; gives ample scope for sales of add-on services, hardware and integration; enables the ability to offer on-premise or hosted deployment as customer prefers; helps them obtain the best priced Hosted PBX solution in the market; gives the ability to choose from a large number of supported IP phones as well as integrate mobile devices as alternatives to IP phones; and offers free training and support.
Resellers will also see increased flexibility because they’ll have the option of buying virtual instances hosted by CloudCo, one by one, month by month with no commitments. This allows for day one profitability.
Both sides of the partnership seem excited, with Mike Evanisko, Press Officer from CloudCo Partner, saying, “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…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.”
