Avaya vs 3CX

Pricing: Which Service Fits Your Budget?


3 plans, and a “Create Your Own Plan” option. Prices depend on your needs and are revealed after a sales demo. Avaya doesn’t offer a trial version.


Offers 3 plans. Costs range between $150 and $270 annually. 3CX does not offer monthly billing. 3CX also offers free forever and 1-year free plans.

Pricing winner:

Although we can’t compare the monthly costs of the two software, 3CX wins this round: unlike Avaya, it offers a free trial version and can be used free forever for up to 10 users.

Features: Which Phone System Powers Your Team Better?


30+ features, including biometric authentication and voice-to-text, and you can connect the software with the most popular CRM and Messaging tools. But, we were disappointed to find that Avaya doesn’t offer auto-dialers.


40+ features. 3CX’s biggest draw is the freedom of choice it offers – users can choose the hardware they use and whether they want to host the VoIP themselves or not. The platform also has great video conferencing capabilities.
