    So what is a conference call anyway?

    Conferencing calling is a term used to describe three or more people on a phone call. It’s all pretty simple really, if you’re at home in your PJs and so and so is in the office, whilst other so and so is in a trendy café and final so and so is at an airport, you can still get the job done quickly and effectively by hopping on a call. It’s not restricted to three people just made our example more manageable.

    Being able to dial in from anywhere, at any time of the day, makes it super handy for businesses with remote workers, multiple offices and/or colleagues or clients that work in different locations.

    With PowWowNow, we offer two options for our conference call service to float your boat (ahoy sailor):
