to start conference calling...
Conference calling, unlike face-to-face meetings, allows businesses to instantly save on costs such as travel, venue hire, accommodation and other direct costs such as biscuits, which were previously a big drain on company budgets.
In addition to saving on costs associated with meetings, free conference calling services available through conference call providers like Powwownow, further reduce the cost of meetings by eliminating booking and bridging fees. The caller only pays the cost of their own call which appears on their standard telephone bill – nothing more! This is now even the case when on the go; simply use the UK mobile shortcode (87373 for 12.5p a min + VAT) instead of the 0844 number and start benefiting from our exclusive reduced call rates. Furthermore, international callers can dial-in using local access numbers which are cheaper than a long-distance call, even if there are just two people on the call!
Time; the most valuable resource that a company can have and it should be optimised by all means.
The time your business can save on travel can be priceless. Assuming you had 50 people participating in a meeting (which is not likely, but great as an example) and travelling time totalled 2 hours per person for a return trip, your business could effectively save 100 hours by having a conference call!
Unlike face-to-face meetings and conference calls over the web, ‘tapping’ into conference calls is impossible due to the secure PIN process. Only those supplied with the unique PIN will be able to access the call.
Conference calling not only improves workplace efficiency and reduces costs for businesses; it also reduces CO2 emissions. By reducing the impact made on the environment by driving, flying and taking other forms of transport to meetings, conference calling is not only good for the environment, but good for business, as it allows you to promote your green credentials.
