Two Must-Have International Telephone Services for Businesses Serving Customers in Barbados

Our Barbados virtual phone numbers are offered month-to-month in bundles of minutes while our international conferencing plans are pay as you go.

Barbados Ocean ViewDoes your business cater to customers in Barbados? While you probably enjoy spending time in Barbados, it’s not always practical to book a trip to the island nation every time you need to negotiate a contract, answer questions from customers, or interact with a vendor. Plus, the costs would be prohibitive.

No matter where in the world your home base may be, setting up the following two international telephone services will make it easier for you to communicate with your customers and partners in Barbados.

  1. Virtual Phone Numbers. Start with a toll free global virtual phone number. Virtual phone numbers are not tied to a physical location, and global virtual numbers aren’t even tied to a single country. In the case of a toll free Barbados virtual phone number, your callers in Barbados will dial a toll free number, but the phone itself will ring wherever you have set it up to ring.

For example, you could configure your Barbados virtual number to ring to your main office in Houston, Texas or a call center in the Philippines. Though callers may be routed halfway around the world, the sound quality will sound as though they’re calling a business across the street thanks to our PSTN fiber optic telecom networks.

Perhaps best of all, our Barbados virtual phone numbers can be configured in several ways. You could set up a virtual PBX system complete with extensions if you want as well as configure call forwarding behaviors based on the time of day. Other advanced features include: API on demand, sequential forwarding, simultaneous ringing, voice mail to email, custom greetings, forward faxing, and more. Rollover minutes and call recording are optional add-ons.

Establishing a global virtual number in Barbados is easy and affordable with our month-to-month plans that grow as your needs change. This is a great way to establish a local presence in Barbados and encourage your customers and partners to stay in touch.

  1. International Conference Calling. Use international conference calls with toll free Barbados access numbers. Our international conferencing services are incredibly flexible, allowing you to host calls with participants from around the globe — including Barbados. Your attendees in Barbados can join the conference by dialing a toll free number; thus, the call will be completely free to them.

Hosting an international conference call with your customers and partners in Barbados is easy and affordable, too. You can host a conference call on demand as well as access a variety of advanced conferencing features like MP3 recording, auto attendance reports, live conference viewer, and moderator dial out.

As with our Barbados virtual phone numbers, all callers are connected over state-of-the-art, fiber optic PSTN telecommunications networks. The sound quality is clear and free of dropouts, stutters, echoes, and line noise.

Both of these international telephone services are available without a contract, and you can cancel at any time without penalty. Our Barbados virtual phone numbers are offered month-to-month in bundles of minutes while our international conferencing plans are pay as you go. If you do business in Barbados, give both of these services a try and experience a better way to communicate internationally.

International Conference Calling for Barbados Business Professionals

Outsourcing has become commonplace, with independent contractors working on projects from afar.

Clearwater Villa Ocean View BarbadosIf you operate a business in Barbados, you may have partners, vendors, customers, and colleagues in other parts of the world.

Bringing them together in a Barbados conference call should be as easy as holding any other conference call in your office. However, you’ll likely discover that it’s not.

Why You Need an International Conference Calling Solution

For example, your suppliers in Asia may balk at having to dial an international phone number. Your European customers might not be concerned about the potential cost of the call, but they could have trouble figuring out how to dial an international conference call based in Barbados.

Fortunately, international conference calling services exist specifically for overcoming these difficulties. When you chair a Barbados conference call using our international conferencing service, your callers can dial local or toll free access numbers for their own countries. These “local” calls are then routed over a PSTN network and joined to your conference.

In order to host an international conference call from Barbados, you simply schedule the call, invite participants, provide participants with their local access numbers and PIN, and collaborate in a group call with your international associates.

When to Host International Conference Calls in Barbados
When might you need to hold an international conference call? Below are a few examples of when group calls are advantageous:

Negotiating contracts

This is especially useful if your suppliers have representatives in different countries. Instead of letting them delay the conversation until everyone is back from their trips, accommodate them all by hosting an international conference call.

Resolving issues in the supply chain

What happens when a factory manager in China blames a shipping and logistics coordinator in Miami who blames the port authority in Barbados? The blame goes around but nothing gets resolved. Hold an international conference call with everyone involved and find out what happened so that you can avoid this problem in the future.

Group collaboration / virtual team meetings

Outsourcing has become commonplace, with independent contractors working on projects from afar. Though they may be located around the world, they still need to collaborate. Holding international conference calls is one of the best, and most affordable, ways to accomplish this.

Training calls

Instead of flying a trainer to Barbados to train your team, consider conducting the training using an international conference call. Not only will you save on travel costs, you can record the training session for future employees.

High-level strategy sessions with senior management

Are your senior managers or board members out of the country? Hold regular international conference calls regardless of where they are and keep your Barbados business on the right track.

Holding group interviews with international job candidates

If you are recruiting international job applicants, conduct initial interviews in international Barbados conference calls. This will save money, ensure all managers have a chance to ask their questions, and provide you with a recording of the interviews (if you record the calls) that you can review later.

These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg.
