If you have multiple offices, staff on the road or working from home, then getting the right people in the same room at the same time can prove to be a logistical and financial nightmare. Travel costs as well as the time it takes to get this can make group meetings unfeasible for your business, which is exactly why having conference call functionality that really works can be an absolute godsend.
Many may have had a negative experience with conference calls in the past; perhaps you had problems getting everyone logged in to the same call, or there’s that one colleague that sounds if they’ve taken up residence in a little known cave rather than a state of the art office just 100 miles up the road. With our systems you’ll be able to discuss ideas, explore strategies, analyse reports with your whole team no matter where in the world they are, and they’ll even be able to login with no problem at all!
Here are four reasons your business should be embracing the conference call…
A lot of people assume that the audio quality of conference calls is poor, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We all know that technology has dramatically improved in recent years, and audio conferences haven’t been left behind. Broken voices and loud background noise can make you question if the other person is actually alive at the other end of that phone; but that’s not the reality for modern audio conferences. We’ve teamed up with market leaders Konftel and Polycom to ensure that you have the best audio quality possible.
Audio conferencing can be whatever you need it to be. If you frequently call multiple people, then setting up a dedicated number with a conference code and PIN could be the best option for you. This type of call allows you to have spontaneous audio conferences; no need to spend hours emailing and setting things up, just dial the number and enter your code and PIN. It really is that simple!
Alternatively, you may have a recurring day and time for an audio conference, or you may want to schedule calls in the future. This can be organised within a matter of seconds, and you’ll never be late to (or miss!) a conference call again. We find this is particularly popular for those that manage teams across large geographical areas, or for monthly management meetings that bring together senior personnel from different offices.
Calls have to be made through a landline phone, right? Wrong. Audio conference calls can be made through a variety of devices, including your smart phone. That means that even those on the road are going to be able to dial in, giving your business the flexibility to arrange meetings around tight schedules.
