3CX Phone System for Windows Allows Businesses to Connect With Skype Users Worldwide With its Support of Skype Connect

LONDON, April 27, 2011 - 3CX (www.3cx.com/), developer of the award-winning 3CX Phone
System for Windows (www.3cx.com/phone-system/index.html), today
announced that its internationally used cross-platform communications
application has received Skype Connect(TM) interoperability certification.
Businesses of all sizes that are using the 3CX Phone System can now
communicate more efficiently and economically by directing their outbound
calls to mobile phones and landlines around the world through Skype. It will
also allow those companies to receive inbound calls from their clients,
partners and suppliers who are Skype users.

"By utilizing Skype Connect, businesses running a 3CX Phone System can
allow customers, partners and employees to call them. Click & Call buttons on
a company's Web site can make it quick and easy for customers to reach out
and buy - thereby increasing sales." - Nick Galea, CEO, 3CX.

Businesses of all sizes are looking for ways to reduce their
communications costs. Skype Connect(TM) delivers an offering to business
customers that can interoperate with existing SIP enabled PBX or UC systems.
Skype Connect integrates easily with a business' 3CX Phone System, enabling
employees to use Skype to make outbound calls to landlines or mobile phones
at Skype's standard calling rates. In addition, through the separate purchase
of Skype's online numbers, a company can receive inbound calls via Skype from
business contacts and customers calling from landlines and mobile phones.

Customers can also call a business by using Skype's Click & Call feature.
By adding a Click & Call button to a company's Web site, email and other
online promotions, customers using Skype can call with just a click of a
button, making the business easier to reach, as well as providing a free
communication between your business and your customers. All Skype calls being
received in the 3CX Phone System via the Click & Call button will be handled
like any other call, which means call queuing, transferring of calls, making
use of the digital receptionist and additional features available with the
3CX Phone System can reduce the barriers to communicating with your business
and help increase sales, as your business will be far more accessible to
potential and existing customers.

The 3CX Phone System can help improve employee productivity since users
can take advantage of Skype Connect(TM) to call around the

world, while also taking full advantage of the additional key features of
the 3CX Phone System, such as call switching, routing, queuing, call
recording and more.

Skype is not a replacement for traditional telephone services
and cannot be used for emergency calling. Skype Connect is meant to
complement existing traditional telephone services used with a corporate PBX,
not as a stand-alone solution. Skype Connect users need to ensure all calls
to emergency services are terminated through traditional fixed line telephone
services, connected to the local exchange, or through other emergency calling
capable telephone services.
