Cloud Hosted Exchange and a range of complementary services including
e-mail security and archiving in the Cloud.

Now more than ever, your business needs cost-effective andflexible communication tools. With our Cloud Hosted Exchange service, email becomes instant and gives you access to shared calendars, contacts and documents.

Moving your Exchange environment means you will reduce the IT overhead of running on-site Exchange servers, and gives you better control of your costs by reducing the need for expensive hardware installations and ongoing maintenance, without sacrificing service and quality.

The UK based Cloud Hosted Exchange environment is super-resilient, fully managed, and every email is scanned for viruses and spam before it arrives in your inbox.

In short, Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform: a growing collection of integrated services—compute, storage, data, networking, and app—that help you move faster, do more, and save money. But that’s just scratching the surface.

The Microsoft hybrid cloud leverages both on-premises resources and the public cloud without the need for complex workarounds or other products and vendors. Easily move workloads between your datacentre, service providers, and Azure - and build hybrid applications that leverage resources across all three. Unlike Amazon Web Service’s cloud-only approach, Azure gives you lots of options for an effective hybrid cloud strategy without forcing you to snap to a rigid all-or-nothing approach.

Azure is the only major cloud platform ranked by Gartner as an industry leader for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). This powerful combination of managed and unmanaged services lets you build, deploy, and manage applications any way you like for unmatched productivity.

Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the public cloud. Not Azure. Its enterprise-proven hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds, expanding your IT options without added complexity. With Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. It’s also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.

Azure supports any operating system, language, tool, and framework— from Windows to Linux, SQL Server to Oracle, C# to Java. It puts the best of Windows and Linux ecosystems at your fingertips, so you can build great applications and services that work with every device.

You’ll share the same enterprise-tested platform that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. Azure offers a 99.95% availability SLA, 24x7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring. That’s why more than 57% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Azure today.

Azure can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth means you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance.

From 1 up to 100's of users, a business phone system hosted in the Cloud,
with all the latest call management features.

You can now benefit from all the functionality of a traditional office-based phone system, but with the flexibility to do so much more.

As it’s cloud-based, your staff can use all of the features from anywhere with internet, whether they’re in the office or not. Maintenance and upgrades are automatic, without the need for any costly and disruptive on-site visits. For the company looking for all the features of a full blown on-premises system, but without the costs, maintenance, and headache of hosting it yourself, 3C Cloud Voice could be just what you need.

Get customised features for each user and only pay for the ones you need. Users can get up and running quickly – all through the online management portal.

In business, where every call counts, missing one isn’t an option. With 3C Cloud Voice, you won’t. Plus free intra-business calls over the internet, and, as it’s in the cloud, there’s no equipment (apart from phones, of course) to maintain either.

If you are always on the move but want to create a local impression whenever anyone calls then 3C Cloud Voice is the perfect solution. Your clients dial a local number but get through to you wherever you are and on whatever device (deskphone, mobile, tablet, laptop) you work with.

Choose from a wide range of deskphones, DECT cordless or conference phones from Yealink and Polycom. Many deskphones also available on a pay monthly basis.

Bring Your Own Device. Use the UC app on your smartphone, tablet or laptop to instant message your colleagues, make voice or video calls.

Your service is installed, managed and supported by us, but the highly resilient platform is owned and operated in the UK by on our behalf by BT. The system is based on Broadsoft, the global leader in cloud telephony software. There's a guaranteed 99.9% uptime backed by our SLA.

Almost all the features you could ever need are standard with 3C Cloud Voice, as well as a massive 5000 minutes per month call bundle for EACH user, for one simple monthly price. Call now for a quote.

Wether you need phones for your HQ, branch offices, home workers or temporary sites, we are here to help with flexible contracts to suit your business needs. Unlike other suppliers, we won't try and tie you in for 5 year terms.

5,000 inclusive minutes of calls per user per month to UK 01/02/03* numbers and UK mobile networks. Also aggregated and shared across all users; e.g. 10 users = 50,000 shared minutes!
(*maximum of 10% call allowance on 03 numbers).

Unlimited free "on-net" calls between users on the 3C Cloud Voice system regardless of location.

Unlimited levels of auto-attendant menus and announcements.

Self-service online tool. Administrators can set up user profiles; users can control their individual call management features.

Transfer calls to any number, internal or external (including mobiles).

Set up a 3-way conference call instantly, including bringing a third person into an ongoing call.

Set up a hunt group so that multiple phones ring when someone calls a single number or so incoming calls are distributed around the group in whatever sequence you’ve chosen.

With 3C Cloud Voice, the hunt group members don’t have to be located at the same site; they can be anywhere.

Set up one or more alternative fixed line or mobile numbers that act as a user’s virtual extensions. The user can make calls from an external number to internal and external numbers through the Call Director portal – the call shows the calling line identity (CLI) of their 3C Cloud Voice service rather than that of the phone they are actually dialling from.

Set up voicemail so that messages are sent to your email inbox as an MP3 file.
