Cost savings

3CX pricing isn’t based on per-extension licensing, so your business can grow as you want it to with unlimited extensions. 3CX hosted pricing and the on-premise 3CX phone system price are calculated based on the number of simultaneous calls you require. You will also benefit from free or low UK calls as an added bonus.
