The Global Conference Call
- Global Conference Call for worldwide collaboration
- No matter where attendees happen to be, collaboration with others in many countries is a simple matter of dialing
a local toll free phone number
and entering a passcode.
For international collaboration, the global conference call remains the solution of choice for several reasons
Call Quality - Using the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) ensures that
all participants on the global conference call can hear one another thanks to the superior call quality
that PSTN is known for.
Accessibility - Attendees do not need a computer, tablet, Internet connection, or videoconferencing
equipment to join the global conference call. All they need is a phone, and all phone types including landlines,
VoIP phones, and mobile phones are supported.
Toll Free Access - Your conference call guests can dial-in Toll
Free from 62 countries. If a toll free number is not available in the attendee's country, the Host can use
the free dial-out feature and bring them into the conference call. Both methods are at no cost to the
Host Dial-Out - An invaluable free feature that permits participation with any guest, in
any country. With Toll Free access numbers and the Dial-Out feature enabled, there are no limits to hosting a
global conference call.
Voice Interaction - Instead of reading messages on discussion boards or short texts in
private social media networks, attendees speak to one another. This breaks the ice, builds relationships, and provides
participants with context and verbal cues.
Affordability - By holding global conference calls regularly, geographically diverse
team members can brainstorm, collaborate, and solve problems without having to travel.
Flexibility - The global conference call is also extremely flexible.
Not only can you initiate a conference call on demand, you can manually dial participants (or set up automatic
dial out), record calls for future reference, participate in conferences from virtually anywhere, and much more.
- Uses for the Global Conference Call
- The global conference call has many uses for businesses of all sizes.
Some of the more common uses include:
Team meetings and collaboration - Team members from around the world can join the global
conference call, exchange ideas and information, and work together to overcome business challenges.
Whether your team consists of a few offshore designers or dozens of regional sales managers located on every continent,
team meetings using a global conference call can ensure that everyone is working together toward a common goal.
Mergers and acquisitions - The global conference call is a vital communications tool as
two companies become one, and even long before the deal is complete. From discussions with lawyers and brokers
to making executive decisions and beyond, the global conference call is a convenient, fast, and effective
way to facilitate discussions.
Supply chain management - Make sure vendors can deliver by holding regular conference calls between
production managers and vendors from around the world.
Training and Education - The global conference call is often used as a training and educational
tool. Whether you need to train international
staff members or customers, a teleconference is an excellent, cost-effective way to deliver lectures, seminars,
motivational speeches, and question-and-answer sessions. In addition, you can record these sessions and use them
over and over either internally or externally. For example, your human resources department may require new employees
to listen to an orientation that originally took place as a conference call. Meanwhile, a motivational speaker
may opt to create a podcast of a previous global call.
Focus groups - Find out what your customers or prospects think about your products and
services by holding international conference calls. This is a cost-effective way to hear their thoughts. Since
you can record the global
conference call, you can also refer back to it as needed.
- Getting the Most out of the Global Conference Call
- Like any tool, the global conference call must be put to good use. To get the most out of your international
conference calling plan, take advantage of it and use it regularly to communicate with your team, business brokers,
lawyers, partners, vendors, and customers.
Enable automatic dial out - If you hold the global conference call with the same
group regularly, enable the UBlast feature and enter each attendee's phone number into your account. Once set up,
you can immediately establish a conference call on demand and have UBlast dial all participants automatically.
Use toll free international phone numbers - By offering toll free access to the global
conference call, you'll encourage participation because participants won't be worried about how much the call will
cost. Toll free global conference calling rates are much lower than you may realize, and there's no travel required.
Understand calling rates - International toll free rates vary based on each participant's
country. Compare the toll free rates for each country and determine which participants should be dialed directly.
The global conference call is an affordable, convenient, and flexible communications tool
for businesses of all sizes. Whether you need a better way for your geographically diverse team to collaborate
or want to share your knowledge with participants around the world, holding international conference calls is easy
