Audio conferencing is the increasingly popular method where a team of people can all share a conversation as if they were in the same room. Typically invited from an e-mail to join the conference at a particular time, the key advantage is that each person can speak without “cutting the others off” known as a “fully duplex” service.
Key Short Comings For Most Conference Services
- Complicated log in’s, host and guest PINS and differing numbers for overseas users
- No rights to an exclusive conference number for your business
- Expensive 0844 number premium rate numbers with hidden costs
- Overseas users, some mobile and UK can’t easily participate due to barring of the Premium number
As Simple As A Phone Call
Keep it simple, think of a 6 digit PIN for your conference and put it in the invite. When you are ready to start it, dial in and put this PIN in, then the participants join that conference even if they get there before you. No host and guest PIN to issue and remember.
Own Exclusive Universal Conference Number
Keep your conference unique by choosing your own PIN, if the meeting is not that confidential, use the same 6 digit PIN numbers for your conferences every time. If confidential, our service allows you to set your own 6 digit PIN.
Drastically Cut Your Costs
Five mobile users and five landline users speaking for 20 minutes will only cost about £1.20 in dial in charges.The same conference using 0844 numbers costs a whacking great £47.00 – A 97% saving.
Anyone Can Join
Overseas telephone exchanges restrict access to premium numbers like 0844. Participants often find they cannot join these conferences from overseas. If you use normal UK area code number your participants can join in using the same instructions for everyone, from anywhere in the world.
