3CX has acquired e-works' mature web conferencing technology that will be integrated into 3CX Phone System. e-works is an Italian based company with over ten years of specialised experience in the development of video conferencing software.
"Customers are demanding web conferencing to be integrated with their PBX. They don't want to be burdened with the extra learning curve and licensing of separate conferencing services. From an in depth evaluation of the market, e-works proved to have the most mature and innovative technology to fit 3CX Phone System. Customers want a web conferencing solution which will seamlessly integrate with 3CX Phone System, providing them with a complete Unified Communications solution.

We look forward to working with 3CX to create a web conferencing solution that will seamlessly integrate with the award winning 3CX Phone System,"said Stefano Spattini, e-works, CEO.
Easy to Use, Open Standard, Innovative Web Conferencing Solution
The need for an open standard, low-cost web conferencing solution which is integrated into a phone system is apparent as shown in a study carried out by Infonetics which identifies the need for a PBX-based web conferencing solution. Businesses need a PBX-based web conferencing solution that's cost-effective, integrates with the PBX and doesn't require a learning curve and provides companies with a way to leverage multimedia communication using infrastructure they already have.
3CX: Revolutionising Video Conferencing by Leveraging WebRTC
3CX's web conferencing server technology will be fully supporting the new WebRTC standard allowing participants to take part in conferences without having to install any client software at all. This innovative feature allows 3CX to leapfrog the existing proprietary, client-heavy web conferencing solutions.
WebRTC, backed by Google and others is rapidly gaining ground and set to revolutionise the communication standards.
"WebRTC is the ability to communicate live with somebody or something as if you were right there next to them. WebRTC fills a critical gap in the web platform as you can communicate in real-time just by loading a web page," said Justin Uberti, Tech Lead on WebRTC, Google.
"WebRTC is a new front in the long war for an open and unencumbered web", said Brendan Eich, Mozilla CTO.
We are in an advanced stage on the development of this technology and an announcement will be forthcoming.
