Expanded International Conference Call Plan

Can a participant join your conference call from their country?  

If you host a diverse conference call with guests in remote countries, network access numbers might not exist.  But this shouldn’t stop your call.

Expanded Global Conference Calls

The Expanded Plan includes in-country toll-free access in over 100 countries plus local access numbers in 50 worldwide cities.

In addition to convenient dial-in access methods enabling an attendee to login with either a local or toll-free number from inside their country, the Expanded Plan also gives the chairperson dial-out capability.

How does the dial-out option help you add inaccessible attendees to your call?

In a nutshell, the dial-out feature enables the leader to call out to any phone number globally without disturbing the meeting in progress.  This means the leader of the call can add a participant on demand in any country.

The attendee simply answers the inbound call to their phone and is immediately added to the call.

For instance, recently a customer based in New York had a project in progress in Ghana.  There is simply no easy way for the Ghana attendees to access the call.  So, the chairperson uses the Expanded Plan with the easy dial-out feature to add the Ghana guests to their weekly calls.  The other attendees located in the US and Kenya access the call using the supplied toll-free numbers.

In addition to the dial-out feature, the Expanded Plan also offers a free App that enables connecting to the conference room using any web enabled device such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry or a PC and MAC desktop.  The Connect App makes dialing in using traditional toll-free or local numbers unnecessary as long as the attendee has a WiFi connection.

Be careful with the company you choose

Some companies offer local international access numbers that you can give out to your global call participants but they may not work.

Bad, non working access numbers are obviously something you want to avoid especially on an important business conference call with a potential client, existing customer or with a regular team meeting call.  Some of the problematic services with non-working overseas access numbers are touted as cost free.  The saying is still true, you get what you pay for.

The Expanded Plan is an all inclusive, high powered, intercontinental business collaboration tool with global access numbers guaranteed to be operational 24/7.

In addition to the many methods of accessing your call, the chairperson can always reach a 24 hour U.S. based operator who will connect anyone, or fix anything required.

How to Host International Conference Calls

How to Host International Conference CallsTasked with hosting an international conference call? It’s not as easy to host international conference calls as it is to do so domestically for several reasons. First, you have time zone and language differences to contend with. Second, different countries have different dialing conventions and international calling costs. And third,  your office conference phone may not be able to handle a large volume of conference call participants.

Here’s how to host international conference calls with ease:

In addition to the normal method of accessing a conference via a phone, one very convenient free optional feature customers enjoy is to use a Connect App.  Essentially this is another option to access a conference call using a web enabled device.

The Connect App work from any smartphone or PC and Mac desktops.

Connect tools let users quickly schedule, start/join and manage their audio conferences and Web Meetings.

These tools provide an option to have the bridge call the user instead of having to dial an access number, enter a passcode or chairperson PIN, saving time joining a call and avoiding incorrectly entered numbers for the Toll Free, access code or PIN.

These Connect tools also provide the same functionality to participants when the meeting is scheduled using the free Calendar Tool.   If you are also using Web Meeting, meetings can easily be started or joined from the same invitation/link.

1. Use a world time zone map or calculator to determine the best time for the majority of your call’s participants. It’s not always possible for all participants to attend your live call during local business hours. However, you may be able to find a time that works well for most attendees.

2. Choose a conference call service provider that specializes in helping businesses host international conference calls. Ideally, the provider you choose will support all of the countries involved as well as offer affordable rates. Keep in mind that some countries have higher international calling costs than others. To contain these costs, consider using the service provider’s “dial out” feature. By dialing participants directly, you will get a much lower per minute rate. Dial out can usually be preprogrammed so that those calls will be placed automatically by the conference calling system.

3. Choose local or toll free numbers for your participants’ countries. One of the biggest challenges you will encounter when you host international conference calls involves providing access to the conference room. This is because each county has its own unique calling conventions. A toll free number in the United States, for example, doesn’t work in Italy. The trick is to provide callers with either local or toll free numbers that work in their respective countries. These numbers will then connect to the global conference call.

4. Record the call. When you host international conference calls, there’s usually an option to record the call. By all means, do so. You never know when you might want to listen to it again or share it with others. For example, you may want to use the recording for training purposes or have the call transcribed and translated. Participants who were unable to attend the call in real time could listen to the call after the fact. Recordings are also helpful for those who speak a different language as a first language. By providing a recording of the call, they can go back and listen to sections that they had a hard time keeping up with originally.

When you host international conference calls, many challenges can be overcome by choosing a global conference call service provider that specializes in overseas teleconferencing. Choose wisely and your international conference calls are sure to be successful.

Staying in Touch While in Kenya with Global Phone Services

Nairobi Kenya SkylineTraveling to Kenya or staying in the country for an extended time period is both exciting and potentially daunting. How will you stay in touch with your family and business associate’s when you’re deep in the heart of Africa?

Global Phone Services — Kenya International Conference Calls

Kenya is less remote when you have access to global phone services. For group communications, international conference calls are the answer. With a Kenya international conference call, for example, you and your contacts will each dial a regular phone number (either toll free or local to the country you are in) and enter a passcode. You will then be joined into an audio conference room where you can converse with one another.

It’s important to choose a high quality international conferencing service to ensure that the sound quality is crisp and without background noise, drop outs, stuttering, or delays. Our international conferencing technology is modern and based on PSTN networks and not VoIP which is notorious for QoS issues.

Global access numbers are also important. For example, Americans may have trouble or worry about costs if presented with a Kenya international conferencing number. Thus, your callers in USA should be able to dial a toll free number to reach you in Kenya. Meanwhile, you wouldn’t be able to use that same toll free number while in Kenya because toll free numbers only work in their designated regions. Thus, with our service, you’d be able to dial a toll free access number for Kenya.

Our Kenya international conferencing service makes global conferencing easy, is an affordable pay-as-you-go service, and features superior audio quality.

Global Phone Services — Kenya Virtual Numbers

What about one-on-one calls during your stay in Kenya? Global virtual numbers are a great way to ensure that your family and colleagues can easily reach you. A global virtual number is essentially a call forwarding number because you can assign the ring-to number to ring to any phone in the world.

If your contacts are in USA and you’re in Kenya, you can get USA phone numbers for them to dial, either city specific or toll free, and then call forward those calls to a hotel, cell, or landline phone number in Kenya.

Similarly, you could get a Kenya toll-free number or a local Nairobi number and then set the destination number to ring to a phone in USA — or any other country for that matter.

Like our international conferencing service, our global virtual numbers use high quality PSTN networks for superior audio quality. They’re loaded with features such as local ring tones, auto attendant, voicemail extensions, and more. These are month-to-month plans with no contract, allowing for the ultimate in flexibility and low costs.

Using our global phone services like international conferencing and global virtual numbers in Kenya is easy and affordable. Stay in touch no matter how long you’ll be staying in Kenya.

Indonesia Global Conference Calls Among Trading Partners

Indonesia CityAs the world’s 25th largest exporter, Indonesia exported nearly $200 billion in 2014. The country imported about $178 billion that same year for a positive trade balance of just over $19 billion.

Indonesia’s largest trade partners are Japan, China, USA, Singapore, and India.

With a bustling international economy, it’s often necessary for businesses in Indonesia to hold global conference calls among trading partners in these other countries.

Why Host Indonesia Global Conference Calls with Trading Partners?

Business partners throughout the different regions have various reasons they may need to collaborate with one another in a group audio call. For example, a cosmetic company based in the United States may have questions about the processing of Indonesian palm oil.

If there are country specific or international labeling requirements for products being imported from Indonesia, a global conference call is a good way for partners to make sure that these requirements are understood and will be handled accordingly.

With an Indonesia global conference call, partners from various countries can dial into a central audio conference room where they can communicate in real time. Whether discussing the logistics of shipping live crustaceans or clarifying production processes, being able to explain requirements, ask questions and get them answered in real time is one of the biggest reasons to use a group audio call.

Using Our Global Conferencing Tools to Ensure a Productive International Indonesia Conference Call

International conference calls among trading partners do not need to be lengthy, expensive, or overly difficult. Indonesian companies and their international trading partners can interact regularly and as needed using our high quality, competitively priced global conference calling service.

For example, since there are no reservations required, you can host an Indonesia conference call on demand. Let’s say there’s been a delay in sourcing raw materials from Japan. You can gain a deeper understanding of the delay by first holding an international conference call with your suppliers in Japan.

Once you understand the issue and projected timeline, you can use the moderator dial out tool to reach out to your export partners in USA, Singapore, China, South Korea, and other countries. Alternately, you could conclude your original global conference call with your suppliers and then initiate a second call with your affected partners.

By hosting a global conference call, you can ensure that your trading partners are notified about the delay in a timely manner while also providing them with an interactive forum where they can voice their concerns and get their questions answered.

While international conference calls are an excellent choice for mitigating a crisis, they’re also good for routine matters and relationship building. You can use our global Indonesia conference calling service to pre-schedule conferences for just about any agenda you may have. Frequent meetings with your international trading partners can strengthen your relationships, improve communication, and build a spirit of teamwork into your projects.

How to Get Started Using Global Conference Calls

Start by viewing our competitive rates for the countries your business trades with. Toll free and local access numbers are available for more than 150 countries. Next, sign up for a pay-as-you-go global conferencing plan in Indonesia and hold your first international conference call. We’re confident that you’ll find the quality of the calls exceptional and the advanced features, such as MP3 call recording and our live online conference viewer, to be extraordinary useful before, during, and after your calls.

Since there are no contracts, you can hold your first Indonesia conference call as a limited test. If you love the service, keep using it and enjoy low per minute rates and improved communications. If it’s not to your liking, you can cancel at any time, no questions asked.

Tips for More Efficient International Conference Calls With Participants in Sweden and Beyond

Sweden StockholmHosting international conference calls using our Expanded service is an affordable way to communicate with participants in Sweden and any other country worldwide.

For example, if you have some team members in Sweden and the rest in USA, international conference calls are much cheaper than flying back and forth between countries. Real-time voice calls are also preferable to email and chats in many situations.

List of Swedish companies that are prolific global conference call users

SKF, AB
SCA, Svenska Cellulosa AB
Atlas Copco AB
Autoliv AB
Scania AB
Securitas AB
Ericsson
H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB
Volvo, AB
Electrolux, AB
Skanska AB
Assa Abloy AB
Sandvik AB
PostNord AB
Nordstjernan AB
Nordea Bank AB
Vattenfall AB
Volvo Car Group
Transcom Worldwide AB

However, despite cheap Sweden international conference calling rates, you’ll still want to hold efficient group calls to ensure that time is being used wisely and everyone knows what’s expected of them after the call. Use the tips below to better manage your team’s time spent in conference calls.

  • Consider scheduling a series of shorter conference calls throughout the month rather than one marathon monthly session. No one likes to spend hours on the phone, even if the topic is engaging and the people friendly. Plus, long, infrequent group collaboration calls can quickly become information dumps with unclear action steps. By holding a series of shorter calls, the conference calls will likely be more focused and more results oriented.
  • Create a timed agenda. International conference calls are just like any other type of meeting. The more organized you are, the more efficient it will be. One of the best tools you can use is a written agenda with time limits.
  • Communicate before the international conference call. Participants need to know what to expect and what’s expected of them. When you invite them to the Sweden conference call, include the agenda along with any pertinent instructions. Make it clear when the call is scheduled to begin and end. If you intend to record the call and later share the recording or transcript, let them know that too as this can affect how their note-taking plans.
  • Encourage everyone to be on time. The sooner the conference call starts, the sooner it can end. Our free Connect app is helpful for moderators and attendees alike. It makes joining the conference call a simple matter of tapping a button. As the moderator of the call, you can also use the app to dial participants directly.
  • Use a timer or alarm to alert you a few minutes before the international conference call’s end time. This gives you time to wrap up the conversation, clarify action steps, and end the call on time.
  • Follow up with an email. Use the attendance report to see who attended the conference call and then send all participants a thank you message. You can also include the recording of the call, your personal notes, and any action steps you’d like to reinforce. You may also want to reach out to absentee members, sharing the recording or a synopsis of what they missed.
Sweden conference call access numbers

0201400589 - Sweden Toll-Free

Make it Easy in Jordan to Collaborate using International Phone Services

Amman Jordan Citadel RuinAre you targeting customers located in Jordan?

International virtual toll free phone numbers and international conference calling services are an affordable option that makes it much easier for your sales leads to reach you.

Inspire confidence and close more deals by incorporating these two essential international telecommunications services into your business.

Here’s what you need to know.

How Global Virtual Numbers for Jordan Work

Getting a toll free virtual phone number specific to Jordan is similar to getting a traditional toll free number in your home country in that the call is free to callers. What’s different about a global virtual toll free number for Jordan is that the destination phone can be located outside of Jordan. Your sales leads can dial the toll free number and reach you virtually anywhere in the world.

Our Jordan virtual phone numbers are toll free numbers for Jordan. They have the same toll free prefix and number of digits as all other toll free numbers in the country. As the account holder, you can set the destination phone number to any phone of your choosing including your office phone, home phone, mobile phone, or a call center — located in any country.

When someone in Jordan calls your virtual number, the call will be forwarded over a fiber optic PSTN telecommunications network to the destination phone. The sound quality is exceptional. Like a traditional toll free number, you will be billed per minute and the call is free to your callers.

Why Virtual Phone Numbers in Jordan are Easier for Your Sales Leads

Not only will a Jordan virtual phone number be free for your sales leads, it will also be easier for them. Few people like the idea of placing an international phone call. Not only is there uncertainty about the potential cost, there’s often a sense of anxiety about how to place the call or get an operator involved. Some of your sales leads simply will not return your call if you give them an international phone number. By giving them a virtual toll free number for Jordan, you will immediately put them at ease and eliminate barriers.

How International Conference Calls for Participants in Jordan Work

As the sales cycle progresses, you may find that a group audio call is necessary. Your sales leads may need to include their partners, coworkers, advisors, attorneys, or vendors in a global conference call. Whether gathering requirements, pitching a proposal, negotiating a contract, or planning an upcoming deployment, hosting a global conference call can bring participants in Jordan and from around the world together.

Our Jordan international conference calls work by providing traditional audio conference rooms, advanced features, and international access numbers using modern fiber optic PSTN networks. Conference call attendees in Jordan will dial a toll free access number specific to Jordan. If you’re located in the United States, you’d dial a domestic or toll free number for the United States. Participants in other parts of the world would dial access numbers specific to their countries. Once connected, each attendee enters the conference PIN and begins collaborating in a group audio call.

Why International Conference Calls in Jordan are Easier for Your Sales Leads

Again, it comes down to toll free access. No one involved needs to do anything special or download software. Simply dial a toll free number and enter a PIN code. It’s that easy.

Finally, by providing Jordan phone numbers to your sales leads, you are inspiring confidence. This shows that even though you’re located in another country, you are easy to reach.

Our international virtual phone numbers and international conferencing services are both available without contracts. Whether you intend to establish a local phone presence in Jordan for the long term or have a short-term international conferencing need, our international phone services are an incredible value that adapt to your communications needs.

Make it easy on your sales leads in Jordan by signing up for a global virtual number or a pay-as-you-go international conferencing plan (or both) today.

What Can You Do with Virtual Telephone Numbers in Chile

Valparaiso ChileWhether you’re thinking about doing business in Chile, have family and friends there, or are planning a trip, virtual telephone numbers in Chile could play a role in helping you communicate with others.

Getting a virtual telephone number for Chile is easy, and it gives you affordable communications options. Below are a few examples of how you could use international virtual telephone numbers.

What is a Virtual Telephone Number, Anyway?

First, a virtual telephone number is a type of remote call forwarding number that is not tied to a given phone or location. You can set up your Chile virtual number so that while it looks like it’s a standard Santiago phone number, it actually rings to your office in the United States — or Mexico, or China, or wherever you want it to ring. You can change your virtual number’s destination phone at any time, too, making virtual numbers highly portable.

Ideas for Using Virtual Telephone Numbers in Chile

You can get both toll free and city-specific virtual numbers for Chile. Either way, you’ll need to decide on the number type and choose a plan. We offer our virtual numbers in bundles of monthly minutes with no contracts. Once you have a plan, you can use your virtual number in various ways such as:

  • Establishing a local business presence in Chile. If you sell goods or services to customers in Chile, this is an excellent way to field incoming calls. Your virtual number makes it appear as if you have an office in the country. Meanwhile, there’s no need to physically occupy an office or hire local staff. Simply set your virtual number’s ring to number to your main office elsewhere in the world and begin receiving calls from Chile.
  • Communicating with loved ones in Chile. Do you have elderly parents living in Chile or a college student studying abroad? Eliminate the hassles of making international long distance calls, get great per minute rates, and pay for your loved ones’ calls to you by setting up a virtual number.

For example, if your child is attending the University of Santiago, you could get a virtual number that’s local to Santiago and have all incoming calls automatically routed to your home phone number or mobile phone — anywhere in the world.

Chile Virtual Number Database

Chile Virtual Number DatabaseMaking cheap international phone calls from Chile with a virtual phone number.

Because you can change the destination number on the fly and get access to our low international rates and advanced features, you may want to virtual numbers to make cheap international calls. There are no contracts required, so this strategy is useful when traveling.

For example, if you’ll be spending a few weeks in Chile on business, you could get a virtual telephone number and use it to make cheap calls back to your home, office, and business contacts around the world.

These would all be considered local calls while in Chile, so you’d avoid the high costs of international long distance imposed by hotels and mobile phones. Once you return home, simply cancel the service without penalty.

Is it Time to Get Virtual Phone Numbers for France?

Nice in South FranceCommunicating with colleagues, clients, family members, and friends when moving between the United States and France has its challenges, especially if you rely on voice communications.

Getting virtual phone numbers for France is a viable communications solution that will make it both easy and affordable to stay in touch. Here’s how a France virtual number can help.

Using a Virtual Phone Number for US-based Callers to Reach You in France

First, you’ll need a convenient way for your US-based callers to reach you while you’re in France. International virtual phone numbers for USA callers look and act like any other toll free or local number; however, you’ll set up your destination phone number for a phone that you use and answer in France. This could be a France mobile phone that you use while in the country, a hotel room phone, or a physical phone in your office in France.

For example, you could get a virtual phone number for France that is local to Houston, Texas or toll free. Your colleagues in Houston can dial a local number, yet your phone in France will ring.

To your callers, the cost of the call is minimal. If they’re in Houston, only local toll charges, if any, would apply. Had you given them your direct line in France rather than a global virtual number, they might not call. Not only is dialing a foreign phone number intimidating for some people, many will have legitimate concerns about the potential cost of the call. France virtual phone numbers eliminate these barriers.

Using a France Virtual Phone Number for French Callers to Reach You in Both Countries

What about your contacts in France? Virtual phone numbers for Paris, Dijon, Nice, Orleans, and dozens of other cities are available as are toll free national numbers. If you travel between countries, it makes sense to order a France virtual phone number for your French contacts to reach you regardless of where you might be at any given time.

In this example, you’d order a France virtual phone number and change your destination phone number as needed. For example, when working in France, you could have your destination phone number ring to your mobile phone, local office, or hotel phone. Then, when you return home, you could switch your destination phone number to your main office number or mobile phone.

France Virtual Number Database

Again, your callers would dial a local or toll free number, yet your phone would ring to a phone located elsewhere in the world. The audio quality is exceptional thanks to modern fiber optic networks and PSTN technology. We also include a variety of advanced features like local ring tones, auto attendant, fax forwarding, sequential ringing and more.

Meanwhile, you could use your France virtual phone number to make cheap international calls when you’re in France. For example, you could temporarily change the ring to number to your home phone number in USA. To speak to your family, you’d make a local call — yet your call would be routed to your home phone.

The Benefits of Using Contract-Free France Virtual Phone Numbers

Our contract-free France virtual phone numbers are available in prepaid buckets of minutes. Simply pick the number type (toll free or city-specific) and the number of minutes you intend to use for the month and begin using your global virtual phone number. There are no contracts, and you can cancel at any time.

Whether you need a France virtual number for ongoing communications or for a season, our flexible contract-free plans allow you to stay in touch conveniently and affordably.

Build a Virtual Team with Denmark Global Conference Calls

Amalienborg Copenhagen Denmark Royal FamilyDenmark has long been a global player, and chances are you may find yourself part of a team with colleagues in the country.

Whether you’re involved in IT, life sciences, research, agriculture, manufacturing, academia, or any other industry, if you’re working with team members located in countries around the world, like Denmark, global conference calls are a great way to stay in touch.

Why Use Global Conference Calls for Virtual Teams?

Not sure why you’d want to use global conference calls in Denmark when you could use email, instant messaging, and various online collaboration tools? Below are a few instances where group audio calls are beneficial:

  • You want to build more personal relationships with your fellow team members
  • You want immediate feedback
  • You have a complex topic to discuss

Whether your team members are located in USA, Canada, Asia, New Zealand, or Denmark, global audio conference calls allow you to interact verbally. You can hear each other’s tone of voice and get a better sense of their personalities and frame of mind. With group audio calls, you have time to chat and get to know each other on a more personal level.

Global conference calls are also helpful when you need immediate feedback. With our international conferencing service, there’s no need to reserve a telephone conference room ahead of time. Simply launch the service and then use the moderator dial-out function to call your team members in Denmark. International conference calls made on the fly like this, however, should be made with consideration of time zone differences.

Holding a group audio call is also an excellent choice when your topic is complex or would require a great deal of back and forth collaboration. While email and texting have their place, sometimes a phone call is the most efficient choice.

What You Need to Host Global Conference Calls

If your virtual team is scattered around the world, we recommend choosing a global conference calling service that offers in-country access numbers. Thus, your team members in Denmark would dial a toll free access number for Denmark while those located elsewhere would dial numbers specific to their own countries.

This reduces friction associated with international dialing. There’s no need to think about country exit codes, dialing differences, operator assistance, or potential costs. Simply pick up the phone, dial a toll free access number, and connect to a group audio call.

Denmark Toll-Free and Local access numbers:
80251157 - Denmark Toll-Free
36927812 - Copenhagen

800 747 5150 - U.S. Toll-Free

You will need to activate an account to use these numbers
for your conference call.

Our pay-as-you-go global conference calling service is all that you need. Since there are no contracts and no recurring fees, you can host Denmark conference calls as often or as infrequently as necessary. You’ll pay only for the minutes you and your team uses. With crystal clear sound quality, you’ll hear one another as if you’re in the same building and not thousands of miles apart.

Begin collaborating with your global virtual team right away.

Estonia International Conference Calls

Tallinn City Houses EstoniaEstonia: Managing a Team with International Conference Calls

With its healthy economy and robust information technology sector, you may find yourself working with a team of collaborators based in Estonia. While Skype may seem like the obvious choice for virtual team collaboration in Estonia (Skype was developed in Estonia), another excellent communications choice would be to use our pay-as-you-go international conference calling service.

The Benefits of Using International Conference Calls in Estonia Rather than Skype

Skype certainly fills a need and does it well. However, if you have a global team you may want to add international conference calls to the mix. With our global conferencing service, there’s no software to download, app to log in to, or Internet access required (unless you want to manage the conference using our intuitive tools). Each attendee, whether in Estonia or another country, uses the phone of their choice and dials a toll free or regional access number specific to their country.

Where Skype calls are routed over the Internet, and thus subject to packet loss, delays, stuttering, and other quality of service issues, our Estonia global conference calls are routed over fiber optic PSTN telecommunications networks to a modern conference bridge (the same technology as AT&T).

When your team meets in one of our global audio conference rooms for a group conference call, you can rest assured that the sound quality will be exceptional. This is tried-and-true telephone technology at its finest.

Moreover, we’ve included numerous advanced features, allowing you to get even more out of your team communications. For example, you can manage your conference calls via an online portal or the free Connect app. Need to record your calls or mute a noisy line? No problem, those tools are just a tap away. We’ll even email you an attendance report after each Estonia conference call so that you have a record of each call and who participated in it.

With our Estonia global conference calls:

  • You can use ANY phone including PBX phones, landlines, mobile phones, Skype phones, and VoIP “soft” phones.
  • There’s no need to download software. Simply call in and enter your PIN.
  • Everyone can hear one another clearly thanks to PSTN network connections.
  • Toll free and in-country access numbers are available for more than 100 countries around the world.
  • You can use your international conferencing plan for conference calls with team members from any country, not just Estonia.
  • You pay only for the minutes you use. There are no contracts or penalties for non-usage.

How Often Should You Host Estonia Conference Calls with Your Team?

There’s no right or wrong answer to this question. Some teams can work effectively with minimal voice interactions while others may touch base on a daily basis. By choosing a pay-as-you-go service, you have the flexibility to host your global conference calls as needed.

For example, if you’re working on a complex project with a looming deadline, you may need to collaborate via Estonia conference calls every day, or several times a day, as you finalize the details. Once that project is complete, weekly or biweekly conference calls may be sufficient. With a pay-as-you-go plan, you do not need to worry about going over your limit or paying for services you’re not using.

Working with a global team doesn’t mean working in silence. Use our pay-as-you-go global conference calling service and collaborate with your fellow team members in real time.

Global Conferencing Solutions in Czech Republic

old town Czech RepublicWorking with international vendors, partners, colleagues, team members, and service providers often requires group audio calls. This isn’t always easy due to time zone differences and international phone number differences.

Fortunately, global conferencing solutions make connecting with others in Czech Republic and around the world fast, easy, and affordable.

Hosting a Global Conference Call in Czech Republic

If you’re in Czech Republic and need to host a global conference call with people in other countries, you can easily do so using our international conference calling service. Not only can you dial into your own global conference call using a toll free Czech Republic conference call access number, callers from other countries will be able to use toll free or regional access numbers for their own countries.

With country-specific access numbers for dozens of countries, one of the biggest obstacles to a global group conference call is immediately eliminated.

Czech Republic Access Number:  800 142545
You must have an active account to connect your conference call.

As part of our pay-as-you-go international conferencing plan, you can also download the free Connect app or use our live online conference viewer to manage your group audio calls. These tools make it a snap to initiate and manage your group conference calls. For example, if you would like to dial some individuals and join them into the call manually, you could easily do so using moderator dial-out. In many cases, this particular option will reduce your per minute calling costs. You can also record your calls in MP3 format with just a button tap or click, mute lines, lock the conference call, and more.

Hosting a Global Conference Call with Participants Located in Czech Republic

What if you plan on holding a conference call with your team but it turns out one of your attendees is in Czech Republic? With our pay-as-you-go service, you can host group audio calls from anywhere in the world, with participants located anywhere.

Let’s say that you’re in the United States, as are most of your attendees. In ordinary circumstances, you’d likely use your company’s existing domestic conference calling service. Unfortunately, this would put an undue burden on your Czech Republic attendees as they would not be able to connect using a North American toll free number access number.

While you could possibly give them a direct phone number into the conference bridge, that’s far from ideal (if that’s even an option with the conference calling service). Czech Republic attendees would end up paying international long distance tolls in order to participate in your conference call in this example.

Staying in Touch from Cambodia using International Conference Calls

Cambodia Asia SihanoukvilleCambodia is a beautiful country that continues to struggle in some areas such as environmental and human rights issues.

Whether you’re visiting Cambodia as a tourist, business professional, politician, or activist, one of the best ways to stay in touch with a group of colleagues or family members while in Cambodia is by using international conference calls.

Likewise, if you have associates located in Cambodia, you can also use global conference calls for international collaboration.

Using International Conference Calls from Within Cambodia

The first scenario for using Cambodia conference calls is when you are located in the country and other participants are located elsewhere. With our expanded international conference calling service, you can host your global audio calls from virtually any country in the world — including Cambodia. We even have toll free access numbers for Cambodia, making it easy to connect to our conferencing bridge.

You can preschedule your conference calls if desired, or hold them on demand. Each participant will be given a country-specific access number to use to join your Cambodian global conference call. For example, as the host in Cambodia, you’ll dial a toll free number unique to Cambodia. Meanwhile, your colleagues in USA will dial a US toll free number while those located in other countries will be issued phone numbers local to their countries.

This avoids the common problem international callers encounter: unfamiliar dialing conventions. There’s no need to get an international operator’s help or look up country codes and exit codes. Simply dial a traditional toll free or local phone number and join the international conference call.

Using International Conference Calls When You Have Attendees Located in Cambodia

The process is similar if you’re hosting the Cambodia conference call from outside of Cambodia. For example, if you’re in the United States but have attendees in Cambodia, you would join the conference call by dialing a toll free US access number. You have two main choices for connecting your Cambodian callers:

  1. Issue a toll free access number for Cambodia
  2. Use the moderator dial-out feature.

Toll free access is generally easiest. However, Cambodia’s toll free rates tend to be on the higher side. If you’re on a budget, or if the call is expected to run long enough where the per minute cost of toll free access is a concern, consider using the moderator dial-out feature instead.

The per minute cost for moderator dial-out is a fraction of the cost of toll free access in this particular case. Dial-out is easy to do on your own, especially if you have just a handful of attendees in Cambodia. If you need any help, our 24/7 operators can step in at any time.

Dial-Out Option

Our international conference calls are routed over modern fiber optic telecommunications networks, resulting in clear sound and reliable connections every time. While VoIP conferencing may be slightly cheaper (you might be surprised at just how competitive are rates are), the sound quality of VoIP conference calls doesn’t even come close to ours. Why risk your professional reputation for a few pennies?

We also have advanced features like MP3 recording and live online conference viewers. Best of all, our Cambodia conference calling plans are offered on a no-contract, pay-as-you-go basis. Since you can cancel at any time without penalty, there’s no risk in signing up and holding international conference calls as needed.

  • Bahrain virtual phone numbers — For one-on-one communications, consider getting a Bahrain virtual phone number. Our global virtual phone numbers for Bahrain are available in both toll free and national configurations. They look and sound like other business phone numbers in Bahrain, but they ring to the destination phone of your choice. This destination phone can be virtually anywhere in the world, yet your callers will never see an international charge for the call. Local tolls may apply for national numbers.

Why Use Bahrain International Phone Services?

International conference calls allow you to communicate with a group in Bahrain in one of the most cost-effective manners possible. Our service makes hosting and joining a Bahrain conference call as simple as dialing a local or toll free number.

Global Conference Calling Thailand $0.06 minute dial-out rate

City Night Bangkok

City Night Bangkok

Thailand is the second largest economy in Southeast Asia with exports, manufacturing, tourism, and agriculture making up a large part of the Thai economy.

Whether you travel to Thailand occasionally or have business associates in the country, you may need to make international conference calls involving Thailand at some point.

When multiple countries are involved, conference calling requires a little extra effort than you may be accustomed to.

Here’s what you need to know about global conference calling with Thailand.

1. Everyone needs an affordable way to access the Thailand global conference call. When scheduling domestic conference calls, you probably don’t think too much about how your attendees will connect to the call other than to pick between a toll free number or a direct number. However, when you have attendees in Thailand and other countries around the world, international connections can be problematic. Traditional toll free numbers aren’t designed for international callers and many participants will have trouble dialing a direct telephone number. The best option is to use an international conference calling service that provides local or toll free access numbers for each of the countries involved in the conference calls.

2. Choose an international conference calling service provider that uses high quality, reliable telecommunications networks. While you’re looking at Thailand conference calling services, make sure to pay attention to the underlying networks used. While VoIP is popular, the quality and reliability aren’t nearly as good as traditional PSTN telecommunications networks.

3. Consider using a pay-as-you-go Thailand global conference calling service. If you expect to be holding global conference calls infrequently or sporadically, a pay-as-you-go service is ideal, especially if the service offers advanced features, competitive rates, and PSTN quality with no prepayments, no recurring fees of any kind.

4. Record your international conference calls. International conference calls often take place at an inconvenient time for at least some of the call’s participants. This is due to the world’s time zone differences. By recording your Thailand group audio calls, you can later share the recording with participants who were unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts. Recordings are also helpful if you feel like you might have trouble understanding some participants with heavy accents. Likewise, if you have a recording of the conference call, you can use the recording for archival purposes or have it transcribed. Many international conference calling services include a recording feature.

5. Check out our international conference calling rates for Thailand. We make holding Thailand conference calls easy, affordable, and flexible. Our expanded pay-as-you-go international conference calling plan supports more than 100 countries around the world, including Thailand, with toll free access numbers at competitive per minute rates.

Thailand Toll-Free access number:  001 800 656914

With toll free access, your attendees will simply dial in as expected without concerns about costs or needing help. All calls are routed over a PSTN network for the best clarity and reliability.

You’ll love the advanced features included in our Thailand conference calling plans including MP3 session recording, moderator dial out, free Connect app, live U.S. based 24/7 operator assistance, attendance reports, and Skype compatibility.

Best of all, this is a pay-as-you-go service with great rates and no contracts.

Setting Up Business Offshore with Global Virtual Phone Numbers for USA and Canada

North America MapIf your business serves a North American customer base but is located offshore, you’ll need a convenient way for customers to call you.

At the same time, you may not want them worrying about calling an office in the Caribbean, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Honduras, or wherever your office may happen to be.

Using global virtual phone numbers takes geographical phone number differences out of the equation, while also allowing for more robust communications between your customers and your customer and tech support staff.

How Global Virtual Phone Numbers for USA and Canada Work

A virtual phone number from another country looks and acts like a native phone number to callers from within that country. However, any calls made are automatically routed to a phone located elsewhere in the world.

For example, let’s say you’re running a financial consultancy located in Brazil with many of your clients living in USA. Rather than giving them your Brazilian phone number and expecting them to call you using international long distance, you could simply get a USA global virtual phone number. You can order either a toll free global virtual number for USA or choose a regional global virtual number such as for New York, Atlanta, Miami, or Los Angeles.

To the caller in the United States, or Canada as the case may be, it is not readily apparent that the global virtual phone number is for a business located in Brazil. If you use a city-specific global virtual phone number such as for Miami, Florida, it will appear as though your business has a local office in that city.

This is one of the least expensive ways to establish a local business presence. Since the global virtual phone number transfers the phone calls from USA or Canada to your designated phone in a different country, your existing office staff can handle the incoming calls. Similarly, you could also choose to have the global virtual phone numbers ring to a call center.

Over 30,000 virtual number options available for US and Canada

Below is sample of popular call forwarding routes that customers
use for their local Canada and US phone presence creation.
Calls can be diverted to any mobile or landline in any country.

Call forwarding from NY to Canada
New York area codes 716 Buffalo, 631 Montauk Point, 607 Ithaca,

519 Kitchener, 902 Halifax, 226 Guelph, 780 Edmonton, 403 Calgary
289 Brampton, 587 Banff

Who Pays for Any Associated Costs with Global Virtual Phone Numbers?

Global virtual phone numbers work much like traditional toll free phone numbers. The account holder pays for the call forwarding costs. If you get a toll free USA global virtual phone number, your callers will not incur any expenses whatsoever. On the other hand, if you get a regional USA global virtual phone number, your USA callers may incur local or long distance charges based on their locations in relation to the location associated with the phone number.

Global virtual phone number pricing plans vary as well. Our no-contract USA and Canada global virtual phone plans are a fantastic bargain for any offshore business that caters to an American or Canadian customer base. The more minutes you buy each month, the lower the per minute rate. There are no contracts, making ordering a global virtual phone number great for short-term and long-term projects alike.

Not only are these prepaid plans with some of the lowest per minute rates available for global virtual phone numbers, we use modern fiber optic PSTN telecommunications networks for exceptional sound quality and reliability. Getting started is easy and affordable. Sign up for a USA or Canada global virtual number today.

Let’s say you leave Chile and spend a few weeks in Portugal. Instead of dialing the Santiago access number, you’d use an access number specific to Portugal.

Communicating with Vendors in China with Global Conference Calls

Shanghai ChinaWorking with suppliers, vendors, manufacturers, and other business partners in China has its financial advantages. Use global conference calls in China to make sure everyone on your international team is informed.

International conference calling between China and other nations is easier to set up and more affordable than you may realize.

Why Regular Office Conference Calling Services Might Not Work Internationally

If your office has a conference calling-enabled PBX system or uses a third party conference calling service provider, you may think you have everything you need to hold a China conference call. Unfortunately, international conference calls require dialing country exit codes and country codes (which can be challenging for people to deal with, especially if they are unaccustomed to making international phone calls) and can quickly become costly for participants due to international long distance rates.

International conference calling services are designed specifically for joining a group of attendees from around the world into a shared audio conference room. Our specialized conferencing service provides you with everything you need to host international conference calls without the hassles or high costs mentioned above.

For example, your Chinese conference call participants will dial a local or toll free access number specific to China. Having country specific access numbers takes the complexity of dialing an international phone number out of the equation. Callers won’t feel intimidated when they see a foreign-appearing number, nor will they feel the need to use an international operator to join the conference call in China or anywhere else in the world.

Your other international conference call attendees will dial into the China conference call using access numbers local to them. USA callers, for example, will dial a US toll free number or an access number local to their cities.

Our competitive per minute international rates keep costs low. We have some of the best conferencing calling rates you’ll find, and exceptional sound quality. We use the same conferencing bridge technology as AT&T and have modern, fiber optic telecom networks that use PSTN, not VoIP.

When to Host China Global Conference Calls with Vendors and Suppliers

If you do business offshore, you’ll likely have numerous opportunities to use our China global conference calling service. Below are just a few examples:

  • Discussing new prototype requirements
  • Hosting a global conference call for bidders
  • Communicating project requirements
  • Status update meetings
  • Placing large manufacturing orders
  • Coordinating a local visit
  • Preparing for shipping, customs, import/export, and other logistical concerns

Save Time and Money with China Global Conference Calling Services

Our global conference calling services can save you both time and money, and they’re easy to use. We offer a pay-as-you-go global conference calling plan where you pay only for the minutes you and your participants consume. Our international conference calling rates for China are less than 10 cents per minute for toll free and dial-out access. China local dial-in and China mobile 400 access are also available.

Connect to the conference room via Wifi using the free included Connect App.  Use it with iPhone, Android, PC or MAC.  No dialing a phone access number required when using the Connect App.

Our international conference calling service is built for getting things done. The technology gets out of the way so that you can communicate cheaply and effectively. Sign up for a no-contract, pay-as-you-go plan now.

Jamaica Global Conferencing: Tips and Tricks

Jamaica BeachHolding a global conference call with participants in Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean is a cost-effective way to communicate, especially when compared with travel.

Our modern, fiber optic PSTN telecommunications network allows for crystal clear reception no matter where your participants are located or how well equipped their nations’ own telecom systems are, or aren’t as the case may be.

While our pay-as-you-go international conferencing plan makes it easy to host and participate in Jamaica global conference calls, we have a few conference calling tips to help you get the most out of your time collaborating.

  • Review your participant list. Have you invited the right people? What are the per minute costs for each participant’s countries? You may find that some countries, like Jamaica, have higher per minute rates than others like the USA. If it’s going to be a short conference call or if you only have a few participants in Jamaica, this might not be a concern. On the other hand, if you expect to call to be fairly long or if you a lot of participants from Jamaica, you’ll want to be aware of those costs and consider using moderator dial out which has much lower rates.
  • Prepare for your conference call just as you would prepare for an in-person meeting. It’s smart to create an agenda with time limits. The more focused the better. Share your agenda with participants in advance so that they too can prepare.
  • Set up reminders in your calendar or time management system. Whether you use an online calendar, a to-do app, or any other system, set up a reminder so that you are alerted about 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. You could even create your agenda in Evernote, for example, and the set up the note with a reminder. If you’ve scheduled the call using our system, we’ll also send a reminder. Reminders will help you to remember the call is coming up as well as give you a few minutes to gather your thoughts and review your notes.
  • Use our the free Connect app. Our Jamaica global conferencing service works beautifully with the free Connect app, which makes joining and managing conference calls very easy. If you plan on using the moderator dial-out feature to dial your Jamaican participants directly, you can do so directly from within the app. This app is also a good choice for your participants.
  • Record your global conference calls. You can also record your Jamaica conference calls with just a few key presses during the call. The app also has a record button. No matter how you initiate the recording, you’ll receive an MP3 audio file at the conclusion of your teleconference. Many of our users limit their live calls to a handful of participants and then later distribute the MP3 recording to a wider audience.

Finally, relax and enjoy collaborating with your colleagues around the globe. Because international conference calls are so affordable, you can hold them frequently, allowing you to build stronger relationships over time.

aitelephone.com offers Jamaica toll-free number access and dial-out access for international conference calls with Jamaica participants.  In addition, each caller can download the free Connect App for iPhone, Android, PC and Mac.  The Connect app enables connecting to the conference call without dialing an access number.

How has your company benefited from hosting global conference calls.

Doing Business with Bulgaria using International Conference Calls

Sofia Capital BulgariaWhether business, family, adventure, or a government assignment has called you to Bulgaria, your business back home will likely require your attention despite the geographic distance that separates you.

One way to bridge this gap is by using international conference calls to collaborate, coordinate, and communicate with your team.

Use the tips below to remain in touch, and in control, by using international conference calling services with your team in Bulgaria.

  • Determine the type of conference calling plan you need. Unless you’re permanently setting up shop in Bulgaria, there’s no need to invest in expensive PBX systems or sign a long-term contract. In fact, even if you were to stay in Bulgaria, there are much better options such as our pay-as-you-go international conference calling plans. Whether you have a one-time need, a short-term need, or a long-term need for international conference calling in Bulgaria, we suggest signing up for our Expanded international conferencing plan. This is a pay-as-you-go plan with competitive rates, advanced features, and toll-free international access numbers for more than 150 countries — all with no contract and no commitment.
  • Set a schedule so that you can have weekly international conference calls with your team. Just as you likely hold weekly staff meetings when working from your home base, you’ll want to check in with your team each week, ideally at the same time each week. Since time zone differences complicate matters, it’s best to pick a time and day of the week and make your international conference call a repeating event. By holding weekly international conference calls with your team while you’re in Bulgaria, you can stay in touch, provide guidance and feedback, and interact on a regular basis.
  • Schedule ad hoc international conference calls as needed. The ability to host international conference calls on demand is also crucial, especially if you are in Bulgaria on business. For example, if you’re in a meeting with potential vendors or business partners in Bulgaria and they have questions your associates located in another country can answer, you may want to quickly organize an international conference call. This is fast and easy to do using a standard phone or by asking one of our live, 24/7 operators for help. In fact, you could even dial participants into an existing audio conference by using the moderator dial-out button.
  • Record your business-related international conference calls. When you’re in Bulgaria and your colleagues are on the other side of the world, time zone differences may make it hard to get the entire group together in a private audio conference call. If you record your international conference calls, you can later share the MP3 recording with those participants who were unable to attend the call as it took place. This saves you from having to repeat yourself, and it ensures that no one on your team is left out of the conversation.
  • Bulgaria access numbers:  008001151066 Bulgaria Toll-Free

Specialized Conference Call Service for Law Firms

ClientMatterConference

ClientMatterConference

ClientMatterConference has created a comprehensive audio and web conferencing service for the legal industry in the U.S.

Here’s how it compares to the leading legal industry teleconference providers.

Major Court Conference Call Service Providers

The main competitors in the law firm centric conferencing arena are:

  • Soundpath Legal by PGi Legal
  • Infinite Conferencing Legal
  • AT&T Legal Conference
  • Intercall legal conference

Not all are created equal and have different costs and capabilities. ClientMatterConference performs well against the competition for what is most important to attorneys, court reporters, legal assistants and legal professionals across the U.S.

The needs of the Law Firm

Fifty percent of the conferencing companies that cater to the legal industry seem to offer services which essentially are business conferencing services.

For example, AT&T legal conference and Infinite Conferencing legal are standard conferencing plans not specific to the attorney or law firm work flow.

ClientMatterConference is designed to serve attorneys and their support staff. The entire service enables hosting anything from a conference call with the judge or a paralegal conference call to deposition conferencing and hearings, civil motions with built in security, pristine audio quality.

Billable hours used to be an issue but with ClientMatterConference each attorney conference call can be assigned with client and matter billing codes for a specific attorney. All call minutes are identified and itemized.  All call data is viewable online through the customer portal and can be sorted by client, matter, attorney, date of call, etc.

Attorney Staff Friendly

Our online portal consists of just one page. Your one-page portal allows you to quickly create ad hock conference rooms complete with client matter billing codes.

No Hidden Fees or Surprises

It’s a pay-as-you-go service with no activation fees and no recurring fees.  There are no hidden fees, no monthly fees, no minimum usage requirements, and no contracts.

Same Technology

ClientMatterConference uses exactly the same bridging technology as AT&T with fiber optic networks, not VoIP.

Competitive Rates

Soundpath Legal by PGi Legal Rates — Soundpath Legal’s Global Meet Audio plan starts at $19 per month, which includes 300 minutes of VoIP or toll minutes. If you want to provide participants with a toll free access number, you’ll pay an additional 7 cents per minute per participant. You’ll pay $19 per month whether you use up your 300 minutes or not. If you go over 300 minutes, you’ll pay five cents per minute for toll calls (add another seven cents per minute for toll free calls) or two cents per minute for VoIP calls — all per minute per participant which is standard for conferencing. Web conferencing is not included, but is available as a separate product with its own fees.

Infinite Conferencing Rates — Legal conference calls using toll free numbers cost just four cents per minute under Infinite Conferencing’s Reservationless Conferencing plan. There are limits, however, such as a maximum number of participants totally just 100. Infinite Conferencing’s Operator Assisted Conferencing Plan will cost you 20 cents per minute per participant. Neither plan includes web conferencing.

Intercall Legal Conference Rates  — Intercall offers a pay-as-you-go plan with toll free rates of 10 cents per minute per attendee. You’re limited to just 125 participants on this plan, and web conferencing is not included.

AT&T Legal Conference Rates  — If you use AT&T, which uses the same bridging technology that we use, you’ll pay a premium rate. For example, its pay-as-you-go rates for AT&T’s “TeleConference and Web Meeting Service” for reservation less automatic dial-in start at 22 cents per minute per participant for a caller paid dial in number. This increases to 29 cents per minute per participant for toll free dial in numbers. Prices go up from there. Web conferencing is included in this plan and costs 33 cents per minute per connection.

Client Matter Conference Rates — With ClientMatterConference rates are 6.9 cents per minute, per participant for toll free access numbers. You can have as many as 400 participants in your teleconferences. Why pay for a flat rate prepaid plan when you can get our portal and quality for $0.069 per minute?
