Edgar Landivar, CEO of Palosanto said:
“We were considering a telephony engine switch for some time now. The 3CX PBX is easy to use, open standards and feature rich. With the recent advent of its Linux version, as well as the free PBX edition, it is the perfect choice to power Elastix. The 3CX WebRTC Video conferencing engine is particularly impressive. I believe Elastix users are best served by this decision”
