Lotus Racing Installs 3CX Phone System

Lotus Racing and 3CX announce that 3CX has been appointed as technical supplier and that Lotus Racing has installed 3CX Phone System in its technical centre and mobile race track operations. The VoIP PBX system will be used for each F1 race around the globe providing the vital comms link between Norfolk HQ and the track team.

3CX Phone System Enterprise Edition 8 was implemented last month at the Technical Centre in Hingham, Norfolk with 1 Patton ISDN E1 gateway, VoIP Unlimited trunks and 130 Cisco SPA phones.

Although there are many benefits to implementing 3CX Phone System, the top paybacks for Lotus were seen as follows:
- Mobility: 3CX Voip technology enables staff to work remotely around the globe. Remote extensions trackside enables the racing crew to talk to each other irrespective of their location. The MyPhone portal makes it easy for each employee to configure rules on how calls were to be treated and routed.
- Manageability: Extensions and phone lines can be added on-the-go with a few clicks and the phone system can be backed up like any other windows application.
- Savings: A large proportion of Lotus' phone traffic is now sent over inter-company VoIP circuits thereby considerably reducing high mobile phone costs and prohibitive roaming charges.
- Unified Messaging: Employees have easy desktop call control and can contact colleagues and transfer calls with a click of a button. Voice mail and faxes are delivered to the users email inbox.
