LONDON, UK and Mountain
View, Calif.: 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their outdated telephone system, the Euphonix IT team turned to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.
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.
