What does pay-as-you-go mean?

The pros clearly outweigh the cons of pay-as-you-go pricing for USA and Canada conference calls.

Pay as you goPros and Cons of Pay-As-You-Go Conference Calling

Pay-as-you-go pricing models have become increasingly popular in the telecommunications industry.

Is it the right choice as far as business conference calling goes?  It could be. Check out the pros and cons listed below.

  • You pay only for the time you and your conference attendees spend in conference calls. With pay-as-you-go pricing, there are no recurring fees or minimum usage requirements. Thus, on months where you don’t use the service, you don’t pay. Verdict: PRO!
  • There’s no long-term contract. If you company makes a very high volume of conference calls on a regular basis, you might get a better deal by signing up for long-term contract. However, there’s that long-term contract to consider — and you may be surprised to find out that pay-as-you-go per minute rates are competitive with contracted plans. What happens if the audio quality of the service is bad? What if attendees from Canada cannot join your USA conference call? What if you find that you don’t actually use the service as much as you thought you would use it? What if the service is unreliable, or worse, unusable? That’s a lot of “what if’s,” and with a contract, you’re stuck until the term is over. If you’d rather not deal with contracts, pay-as-you-go is the way to go. Verdict: PRO!
  • Pay-as-you-go rates are competitive. Our USA and Canada conference calling rates are mere pennies per minute. Even our highest rate for local Canada access is just 2.9 cents per minute. Local USA access is just 1.7 cents per minute. By the time you overpay for a conference calling plan with minutes you don’t use, you may find that your contracted plan is more expensive than you realized. Verdict: PRO!
  • Pay-as-you-go conference calling providers in the US and Canada need to be competitive, thus they include advanced features to be as competitive as possible. In a competitive landscape like the telecommunications industry, being competitive isn’t just about having the cheapest rates; it’s also about being an exceptional value. Our conference calling plans are packed with the most advanced features and are powered by modern, reliable telecom networks and infrastructure. Live operators are available around the clock, too. Verdict: PRO!

Hmmn, we’re having a tough time thinking of any cons involved with pay-as-you-go conference calling. In fact, since there are no contracts and no penalties for canceling the service, even if you were completely unhappy, you can move on, no questions asked. Your satisfaction is important to us though, so we welcome your feedback.

The pros clearly outweigh the cons of pay-as-you-go pricing for USA and Canada conference calls. Whether you expect to make a lot of conference calls for just a few here and there, consider giving our service a try. We’re confident that you’ll find that going this route is a great choice.

Using Conference Calls to Improve Customer Service and Get Things Done

customers won’t have to sit on hold, work their way through a phone tree, or re-tell their entire story to a new CSR

We’ve all encountered the blame game, and it’s frustrating because nothing seems to get accomplished. With multiple service providers or parties involved, the blame game becomes an exercise in frustration. They have an immediate out because the other party is involved and easy to blame.

And, here’s where the frustration sets in: they tell you to call the other party who tells you to call the other party.

Whether you’re a consumer, an internal customer, or a business manager who wants to improve customer service, conference calls can play an important role in stopping the blame game and getting things done.

How US and Canada Individuals Can Use Conference Calls to Solve Problems

As a consumer facing an issue that likely involves more than one party, you could use our pay-as-you-go conference calling plan to initiate your first phone call to the main party. As soon as the customer service representative tells you that you will need to call some other party, such as a hardware manufacturer, you can let them know that you will be doing just that — but by joining that person to the existing call.

Our USA and Canada conferencing plans make it easy to stay within the existing conference and then join a new person into it. You can use this same strategy within your organization when trying to get to the bottom of an issue.

By bringing everyone involved together into a group audio call, the blame game becomes much more difficult and you, the customer, should have a better customer service experience as a result.

How US and Canada Organizations Can Use Conference Calls to Improve Their Own Customer Service

Ideally, however, customers should not need to take matters into their own hands. If you want to improve customer service within your own organization, empowering your customer service team with USA and Canada conference calling services can help. As needed, they can schedule conference calls with all of the parties involved.

Instead of passing the blame to the other party, which may or may not be the case, your CSRs can stay involved to make sure that the customer ends up speaking to the correct person whether within your organization or externally. We provide local and toll free access numbers for locations across USA and Canada as well as allow the call’s moderator to manually join individuals to conference calls on demand.

For example, if a CSR determines that multiple parties need to be consulted in order to resolve the customer’s problem, he or she could ask the customer for about 5 to 10 minutes to gather the appropriate representatives from the various companies into a group audio call. The CSR could then ask for the customer’s call back number and manually join the customer into the conference call once all participants have joined.

With this approach, customers won’t have to sit on hold, work their way through a phone tree, or re-tell their entire story to a new CSR. Meanwhile, the customer’s problem can be worked through in a much more expedient manner.

Building Rapport During USA and Canada Conference Calls

“We have the human resources team from our Miami office on the line as well as team members from our Los Angeles, Cleveland, Montreal, and Toronto offices.

USA and Canada Conference CallsOne of the many benefits of holding regular conference calls in the United States or Canada is the opportunity to build stronger relationships with your contacts. By hosting frequent group audio calls with your group, people will become more familiar — even if you never actually meet in person.

Even if you’ll rarely interact, you can use conference calls to build rapport before digging into the matter at hand. Use the tips below to build rapport with others during your conference calls.

  • Arrive a few minutes before the conference call’s start time and chat with other early arrivals. If you’re the moderator of the call, you should be the first one. Greet participants as they arrive, ideally by name. Our live conference viewer will display contact details as your attendees join the call. Because there’s always a chance that others will join the call in the midst of your conversation, make sure to keep the small talk focused on safe topics like the weather, sports, or your favorite local hikes.
  • Start the conference call off with a short icebreaker or introductions. As the moderator of the call, ask each person by name to briefly introduce themselves, their position, and where they’re calling from. This can be fun, especially if your callers are from locations all over USA and Canada. If you have a larger group, this is less practical. However, you could still do quick group introductions. For example, you might say something like, “We have the human resources team from our Miami office on the line as well as team members from our Los Angeles, Cleveland, Montreal, and Toronto offices.
  • Find common ground and neutral territory. For some of your more intense conference calls, such as contracts negotiations or a mediation, initial small talk can help you find some common ground, or at least neutral territory. For example, talks may become less adversarial if it turns out that you and the other party attended the same university or grew up in the same town.
  • Keep small talk and introductions brief. While you can use conference calls to build rapport, do so in small doses. Keep your eye on the main purpose of the call and quickly get down to business.
  • Build a Q&A session in each of your conference calls. Not only does this provide you with an opportunity to clarify earlier discussions and answer questions, people who were not formally slated on the agenda to speak will have the chance to talk.
  • Ask questions of your own. If no one has questions or the few questions that do get asked are handled promptly, use the extra time to ask your own questions. Prepare a short list of questions you’d like to ask of each group on the call and then either ask a specific person by name what they think or refer to one of the sub-groups. For example, “Can someone from human resources explain this in layman’s terms?”

USA and Canada conference calls are ideal for connecting with others and building stronger relationships while also taking care of business thanks to their real-time nature.

Why Use Global Conferencing to Communicate with Lebanon Teams?

For example, you may hold Lebanon conference calls every day at the beginning of a project before they begin to taper off to weekly, monthly, or even quarterly events.

Beirut LebanonIf you have a team based in Lebanon and other countries, you have several viable options for group communications including phone calls, online collaboration apps, email, discussion boards, and web conferences. Often overlooked, but highly valuable and affordable, are global conference calls.

With all the other communications methods at your disposal, why use global conference calls? Each method has its time and place, with some being better suited for specific tasks than others. Global conference calls are ideal for a variety of activities such as:

  • Weekly status meetings
  • Crisis resolution
  • Decision making meetings
  • Project collaboration
  • Brainstorming
  • Negotiations
  • Settlements
  • Interviews

What To Look for in a Global Conference Calling Service in Lebanon

Global conferencing doesn’t require any special hardware or software, but you’ll need a reliable international conference calling service provider supporting Lebanon and other the countries you anticipate calling. With that in mind, here are some key features to look for when choosing a global conference calling solution for your team:

  • Toll free and local access numbers for the countries involved — We offer worldwide access numbers to more than 150 countries with various options including toll free, local, and dial out access.
  • Crystal clear audio quality — Our international conferencing service uses fiber optic PSTN technologies rather than the less reliable VoIP. This is a crucial difference that indirectly impacts the success of your Lebanon conference calls. With VoIP, delays, stutters, echoes, noise, buzzing, chatter, and dropped calls interfere with your conversations. With PSTN, voices are transported around the globe using tried-and-true technology that works. The sound quality is pristine with our global conferencing service.
  • Competitive rates — Though VoIP is generally thought of as being the lower cost option for making cheap phone calls, you may be surprised. Check out our competitive international conference calling rates for Lebanon and other countries around the world.
  • Flexible plans — You never know when you might need to host an international conference call, making flexible plans a must. For example, you may hold Lebanon conference calls every day at the beginning of a project before they begin to taper off to weekly, monthly, or even quarterly events. Pay-as-you-go plans are the most flexible option, especially when you choose our pay-as-you-go global conferencing plan that has no monthly fees, no minimums, and contracts.
  • Advanced features — As with many processes, technology has changed how we make conference calls. It’s no longer necessary to huddle around a speakerphone or use a sophisticated PBX system to join multiple parties into a single call. Some of the advanced features we include with every international conferencing plan include: MP3 call recordings, live online conference viewer, moderator dial-out, and a free mobile app. Prefer non-technical features? No problem, we have live operators who work around the clock to assist as needed.

Whether you need to host a single Lebanon global conference call or plan on hosting regular international conference calls, our worldwide teleconferencing plans are the most flexible, high quality choice you’ll find.

International Conference Calls Involving Sierra Leone

In order to call someone in Sierra Leone, you will first dial your country’s exit code followed by Sierra Leone’s country code of 232.

Bo City Sierra LleoneInternational Conference Calls Involving Sierra Leone

Like many sub-Saharan countries, Sierra Leone does not have a toll free international conference calling access number or an in-country access number under our pay-as-you-go international conference calling plan.

However, you can easily host global conference calls from Sierra Leone or with participants located in Sierra Leone using our service. While it’s possible to dial our conference bridge directly, we have a couple of alternative connection methods that you may find more appealing:

  • Use the free Connect app — The Connect app is free, and it will automatically connect you or a participant using the app to your international conference calls. It initiates the connection over a traditional PSTN phone line, and it handles all of the dialing including exit codes and country codes. This makes joining your Sierra Leone global conference call a simple matter of tapping an icon. Meanwhile, you’ll be billed our low “dial out” rates, resulting in an affordable connection, too. You can also use the app to record your Sierra Leone conference calls or dial attendees and join them into the call.  View details about the global Connect App here.
  • Use the Included Dial-Out feature — If the host of the call is in one of the included toll-free countries, simply have them dial-out to your phone in Sierra Leone.  You can be immediately added to the call.  Learn more about the dial-out feature here.
  • Ask for operator assistance — Our live, US-based operators are available 24/7 to help attendees and hosts in Sierra Leone and around the world. Simply ask for help and they will quickly and efficiently join participants into your international conference calls.

Our Sierra Leone conference calling plans are offered on a no-contract, pay-as-you-go basis, making it possible to hold as many or as few international conference calls as you’d like without a long-term commitment. Sign up for a Sierra Leone global conferencing plan today.

About Sierra Leone

The Republic of Sierra Leone is located in West Africa along the Atlantic Ocean. It is bordered by Guinea and Liberia and his home to 5,879,098 people. In the 17th century, the British set up a timber and ivory trading post in the area. This trading post eventually evolved to include slave trading. Sierra Leon eventually became a destination for black loyalists from Nova Scotia and freed slaves.

In 1961, Sierra Leone gained its independence. From 1991 to 2002, Sierra Leone suffered through a civil war that killed tens of thousands and displaced about a third of the country’s population. This civil war coincided with a civil war taking place next door in Liberia. After more than 15 years of peacekeeping in Sierra Leone, the United Nations closed its Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Sierra Leone in 2014.

Sierra Leone is a very poor country facing many challenges such as Ebola, corruption, lack of infrastructure, and unemployment. About half of the population works in subsistence agriculture. Sierra Leone has abundant natural resources such as iron ore, diamonds, rutile, and other minerals along with both agricultural and fishery resources. The country is susceptible to international price fluctuations affecting its main exports of iron ore and diamonds.

Sierra Leone is one of the world’s top 10 diamond producing countries but has struggled to fully leverage diamond mining and exports. During the civil war, the controversial blood diamond trade flourished with diamond sales funding weapon purchases.

The Ebola epidemic has taken its toll on Sierra Leone’s economy by forcing the government to spend more on health care, deterring foreign investment, and disrupting several industries. It’s been reported that there were more deaths from medical neglect than from Ebola in Sierra Leone.

Telecommunications in Sierra Leone

In 2014, according to CIA World Factbook, Sierra Leone had 16,500 fixed line phone subscribers for a telephone density of less than one subscriber for every 100 people. That same year, Sierra Leone had 4.8 million mobile phone subscribers for a mobile phone density of 83 subscribers for every 100 people.

The CIA World Factbook rates Sierra Leone’s telephone service as marginal with poor infrastructure. Freetown is connected to Bo and Kenema via a national microwave radio relay trunk system. The country has one satellite earth station. In early 2013, Sierra Leone gained access to the ACE submarine cable which has improved the country’s international bandwidth and is bringing down costs.

According to Budde.com.au, the country’s telecommunications infrastructure has also suffered from neglect after the war. The fixed line incumbent in Sierra Leone is Sierratel, a state-owned entity. Sierratel also operates a mobile network providing 3G services and fixed-wireless access and broadband Internet services. In all, Sierra Leone has multiple mobile operators providing competition in the mobile sector. These include: Africell SL, Airtel, Comium Sierra Leone, and Sierra Leone Telecommunications Company.

Just 1.5 percent of Sierra Leone’s population, or 85,600 people, used the Internet in 2014.

Making International Phone Calls to or from Sierra Leone

In order to call someone in Sierra Leone, you will first dial your country’s exit code followed by Sierra Leone’s country code of 232. From there, dial the phone number.

In order to call someone in another country from within Sierra Leone, dial 00 first, which is the exit code for Sierra Leone. Next, dial the other country’s international country code followed by the phone number.

Location Centric Conference Calls and International Access Numbers

If the calls are regularly planned conference calls, a solution could be to actually arrange for a private dedicated Uganda access number. (replace country with your requirement)

Location Centric Conference CallingInternational companies that have branch offices in dozens of countries utilize our service to deploy everything from  regional conference calls to  calls with all hands globally joining the call.

These international conference calls may take place weekly or monthly.  The purpose of the global conference calls could be for collaboration with offshore partners, branch office communications, international press conferences, bidding conferences, annual board meetings that include offshore investors, etc.

The overseas guests for these calls usually dial-in to the international conferencing bridge with an access number that’s local to them but sometimes they may be located in a country that is not served by the current conference call company of the user enterprise.

While our standard offering has more than enough toll-free and local global access numbers (150) for most geographical situations, additional city specific access numbers may be available upon request.

The ability to add local access numbers in distant countries to your account allows you to build your own network for your international collaboration as you may require.

What to do if no access number exists now for your remote office?

One solution is to have participants call-in to a U.S. number to connect to the conferencing bridge.  The other is to use the included dial-out feature which works well but can be a burden on the chairperson’s staff due to the extra step.  Having the invitee dial-in to the U.S. access number can translate into a big expense for the attendee from their local phone company to call the U.S. from, for example, Nairobi or Uganda or any number of other remote countries.

If the calls are regularly planned conference calls, a solution may be to buy a private dedicated international access number.  (ask aitelephone.com about your requirement)

Improving Team Collaboration in Germany with Global Conference Calls

With ready access to our global conferencing tools, you can collaborate with your international team as needed, when needed.

Germany Frankfurt Am MainVirtual teams are often international teams, making global conference calls an important communications tool.

If you have team members in Germany who need to join your group audio calls, you’ll soon find that our pay-as-you-go global conferencing service is the perfect choice.

Here’s why.

Global Conference Calls are Better than Chats and Email for Team Collaboration in Many Situations

Instant messaging, group chats, and emails all have their time and place, and they have little to no costs associated with them. However, there are certain situations where teams need to talk. For example, a quick 10-minute international conference call can be used to get answers, brainstorm solutions, or nail down a timeline for a project’s most crucial milestones.

Everyone, whether in USA or Germany or somewhere else in the world, will have heard the same information, had their voices heard, and had the opportunity to contribute their ideas. In contrast, emails and group chats can quickly become hard to manage; it can take hours, if not days, for everyone to weigh in; and they’re not the best medium for group meetings.

Overcoming the Challenges Involved in Hosting Global Conference Calls

Germany, USA, Australia, Japan, and other countries around the world all have their own country and exit codes. They use different dialing conventions, and their toll free numbers only work in their designated regions. All of these telephone dialing differences make calling someone in another country challenging from the beginning. Plus, cost concerns are legitimate.

Our global conferencing plans allow you to host international conference calls with participants from around the world. For example, if half of your team is located in the United States and the half is located in Germany, global conference calls using our pay-as-you-go service are as easy as dialing a local number.

  • Germany conference call participants will dial a German phone number to join your call. It’s simple, familiar, and inexpensive to your attendees. In fact, you can even opt for toll free German global conference call access so they can join group audio call without incurring any toll charges.
  • USA conference call participants will dial a US phone number, which can be either specific to a city or toll free.

Our low per minute rates for more than 100 countries around the world are highly competitive — and we offer our global conferencing plans on a pay-as-you-go basis with no contracts, no monthly fees, and no penalties for non-use or cancellation.

Another challenge with global calls of any type, including group audio calls, involves sound quality. You need to be able to hear one another without struggling. Where other services rely on cheap and unreliable VoIP, our global conference calling service uses PSTN fiber optic networks (plain old phone service) and the same conference bridge technology used by AT&T for the best audio quality and reliability. Our sound quality is superior, allowing you to communicate with your colleagues from Germany as if they were in the same building and not half a world away.

With ready access to our global conferencing tools, you can collaborate with your international team as needed, when needed. While you can certainly preschedule global conference calls or set up recurring calls, you can also hold a conference on the fly without having to make a reservation.

Our pay-as-you-go plans include advanced features, such as MP3 audio recordings and live online conference call management tools, to help you improve the way you and your teammates collaborate with one another.

Hosting Finland International Conference Calls

Finland participants, for example, could dial into your global conference by dialing a toll free access number specific to Finland. We also have an access number for Helsinki if you prefer.

Helsinki City at Night FinlandHighly integrated with the global economy, Finland’s manufacturing sector is largely focused on electronics, machinery, vehicles, engineered metals, forestry, and chemicals.

If your business has partners or suppliers based in Finland, international conference calls may become necessary at some point to build relationships, negotiate deals, or collaborate on various projects.

How to Host Your Own Finland International Conference Calls

Hosting a conference call with suppliers located in different countries has its challenges with one of the main ones being how to access the teleconference. For example, if you were to use a regular US-based conferencing service, your suppliers in Finland would be unable to access the call using the provided toll free number because that toll free number will only work in North America. The workaround, which is far from ideal, would be to have them dial the direct number — if available. Unfortunately, many will have trouble dialing in, and some may even refuse to join your conference call out of concerns about costly toll charges.

Fortunately, a better option exists for hosting Finland international conference calls: our pay-as-you-go international conference calling plan. Simply sign up for a pay-as-you-go plan and host international conference calls with participants from around the globe. Finland participants, for example, could dial into your global conference by dialing a toll free access number specific to Finland. We also have an access number for Helsinki if you prefer.

By hosting your own Finland conference calls using our global service, you can ensure that your contacts feel comfortable joining your conferences. There’s no need for them to worry about toll charges or how to dial a foreign phone number. Our convenient service takes those concerns out of the equation, which can lead to better participation in your calls.

Once you’ve signed up for a pay-as-you-go global conferencing plan, you can host your Finland group audio calls on demand or schedule them for a time in the future. We have an intuitive online portal for managing your conference calls as well as live operators (24/7) and a free Connect app.

Schedule your Finland conference call, invite participants, and prepare for your meeting. At the appointed time, everyone involved will dial an access number and enter the conference PIN. It’s that easy, especially since most everyone has access to a phone. There’s no software to download or equipment to buy.

If you’d like to add participants at some point during the call, you can easily do so using the moderator dial-out function. Other useful features include conference lock for added security and MP3 call recordings.

How Many People Can Participate in Your Finland Conference Calls?

As the host of the call, you can invite up to 250 attendees around the world to join your global conference calls whether they’re in Finland or located elsewhere. Whether you need to speak with a small group or a large one, our global rates are highly competitive and our audio quality is exceptional.

Since our international conferencing plans are available without a contract and on a pay-as-you-go basis request an account today, host your first conference call, and see if global conferencing is the right choice for your business.

Swaziland – The communication challenge, how to use conference calls with Swaziland.

Whether you’re in Swaziland or any other country, our pay-as-you-go international conferencing plan is easy and affordable. There are no contracts, no monthly fees, and no commitment.

Swaziland FlagGlobal Conference Calls in Swaziland

Our global conferencing service is easy to use for hosting global conference calls in Swaziland as well as for accommodating attendees from Swaziland. While we offer toll free and in-country access numbers for dozens of countries, Swaziland conferencing hosts and attendees will need to dial an international access number — or use one of the following alternate connection methods to join the Swaziland international conference call:

1 Use the Connect app — This free app takes care of joining you to the international conference bridge, whether you’re in Swaziland or another country. Not only will it route you over a high quality PSTN network, it does so using our competitive dial out rates. It also lets you record your calls or join attendees manually.

2 Use operator assistance — Our live US-based operators can join you and your attendees to your Swaziland global conference call 24/7.

3 Have one of participants act as the chairperson and use the dial-out feature to add the Swaziland conferees from their country.  The call to the Swaziland attendee would be ‘inbound’ to the Swaziland participant and charged the account owner using these dial-out rates here.

4 The Swaziland attendee could dial-in to the supplied U.S. toll access number.  Long distance charges would most likely be charged by the local Swaziland service provider of the attendee.

That same year, there were 916,800 mobile cellular subscribers in Swaziland for a mobile phone density of 65 mobile subscribers for every 100 inhabitants. About 90 percent of the country has mobile coverage.

The CIA World Factbook rates Swaziland’s telecommunications system of “some modern, but not advanced. It consists of open-wire lines and low-capacity microwave radio relay. Swaziland has one satellite earth station.

According to Budde.com.au, Swaziland is one of the world’s last countries to move away from state-own monopolies in the telecommunications market. SPTC served as the sole operator and the telecommunications regulator until 2011. It also had a partnership with MTN, the only mobile network operator at the time.

SPTC was restructured in 2014 and charged with maintaining and operating the national telecommunications backbone infrastructure. The business side is now operated by a subsidiary of SPTC. In 2014, a second mobile operator, Vettel, placed a bid for a mobile telephony license to enter Swaziland’s market as Swavitel.

Thus far, the only telecommunications sector in Swaziland to have any real competition is the Internet sector, which has four ISPs. In 2014, Swaziland had 337,300 Internet users, which is almost 24 percent of the population. Despite the competition, Internet pricing remains high. Because Swaziland is landlocked, it relies on its neighbors for international bandwidth. This combined with a limited fixed-line infrastructure have hampered Swaziland’s Internet potential. However, there are some bright spots including new access to fiber optic submarine cables and the arrival of 3G mobile broadband services several years ago.

Ghana Global Conference Calling

If attendees are bidding on a multi-million-dollar Ghana contract, they’d likely be eager for the opportunity to learn more about your requirements.

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park Accra Ghana
Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park Accra Ghana

With its robust export, manufacturing, oil production, real estate, and mining sectors, it’s not unusual to have business contacts in Ghana with whom you need to have an international conference call.

Our international conference calling plan is an excellent choice for holding global conference calls with participants around the world — including Ghana.

Even though the country of Ghana does not offer toll-free access numbers through it’s government owned telecommunications agency, it is still a reality that you can easily hold a conference call with a Ghana based attendee.

The Solution to Ghana International Conference Calls

To host or participate in international conference calls from Ghana using our service, we recommend downloading and using the free Connect app. This app requires a network or wireless connection but allows you to join international conference calls without having to dial any international access numbers. The app takes care of the connection, allowing you to communicate with your colleagues quickly and easily.

If you have participants located in Ghana and need an easy way to join them to the call, you can join them to your call directly from within the app. Another option is to use our live, 24-hour US-based operators to make the connection for you.

In addition to 24 hour live operator support to assist in joining participants to your call, you could also use the included dial-out feature.  In other words, if you know the phone number of the Ghana participant that you wish to add to your call, simply dial-out to that Ghana phone number through your conference call account and place the guest into your call.

The Republic of Ghana is located in West Africa along the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. It is bordered by the Ivory Coast, Togo, Burkina Faso, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of Guinea.

Ghana has a long and ancient history. Ghana was colonized, and known as the British Gold Coast, by the British in the 1900s. Ghana was the first sub-Saharan country to declare its independence from colonization by the Europeans in 1957. A series of coups followed before Ghana stabilized politically in the early 1980s.

Today, Ghana is a diverse country that is home to more than 26 million people from various ethnicities and religions.

Ghana has the 9th largest economy on the African continent by several measures and is abundant in natural resources including oil, natural gas, gold, and diamonds. Cocoa production is one of its other economic drivers, and Ghana is one of the largest cocoa producers, if not the largest, in the world. Ghana also has robust manufacturing and real estate markets.

Telecommunications in Ghana

According to CIA World Factbook, Ghana had 260,000 fixed line telephone subscribers in 2014 for a tele density of just one subscriber for every 100 inhabitants. This isn’t unusual in sub-Saharan Africa, nor is its much higher mobile phone density of 118 for every 100 inhabitants. In 2014, there were 30.4 million mobile cellular subscribers in the country.

Ghana’s telecommunications system is made up of microwave radio relay and wireless local loop components. CIA World Factbook reports that its fixed line infrastructure is concentrated in Accra and is both outdated and unreliable. Ghana is a landing point for several submarine cables (SAT-3/WASC, Main One, and GLO-1) which link to South Africa, Europe, and Asia. It also has four satellite earth stations and uses microwave radio relay links to connect to neighboring countries.

According to Budde.com.au, Ghana’s mobile telecommunications market is one of the more competitive in the region. Ghana was one of the first to privatize its telecommunications sector and has led the way in mobile telephony and data services development as well as in Internet adoption.

Ghana’s mobile market is competitive with six operators offer mobile cellular and mobile broadband services. Both m-commerce and m-banking are growing in Ghana. One service of note is MTN Ghana’s Mobile Money service.

Ghana’s government also offers a network of public Internet access stations and has made efforts to improve the country’s computer literacy. As of 2014 estimates, Ghana had about 5 million Internet users, or about 19 percent of its population.

Making International Phone Calls to and from Ghana

Ghana’s international country code is 233. If you need to call someone in Ghana from another country, you’ll first dial your country’s exit code followed by 233 and the number. If you’re in Ghana and need to dial an international number, you’ll need to dial Ghana’s exit code, which is 00 followed by the international country code and phone number for the person you are calling.

Joining International Conference Calls to and from Ghana

For most participants located in the world’s more developed countries, access to your call can be accomplished via the app, via operator assistance, or by dialing a country-specific access number (toll free or local).

Our international conferencing service connects all participants to your call over a modern fiber optic telecommunications system. Even if your participants are in countries like Ghana where the telecom infrastructure is barely adequate, the call quality is exceptional thanks to our networks.

Our global conferencing plans are offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, making them ideal for your short-term and long-term international conference calling needs. There are no contracts, commitments, monthly fees, or minimum usage requirements.

Using International Conference Calls for Group Collaboration in Colombia

a participant from Canada might dial a local Toronto access number, yet the caller will be routed to the same exact audio conference room you just joined from Colombia.

Bogotá Colombia
Bogotá Colombia

Are you planning an extended trip or being reassigned to Colombia, South America?

While you’ll likely have plenty to keep you occupied, whether traveling for work or on vacation, you’ll need an easy, affordable way to communicate internationally during your stay.

Avoid costly surprises by lining up your international conference calling services before you go to Colombia.

International Conference Calls from South America

Staying in touch with your business partners, employees, colleagues, suppliers, customers, and family members while in Colombia is important to maintaining those important relationships, staying involved, and getting business done. However, hosting international conference calls from South America is a bit more complicated than it is to host a conference call when everyone is in the same country.

Some of the biggest obstacles are:

  • International phone number differences
  • International long distance costs
  • Time zone differences
  • Audio quality

For example, if you have people located in the United States who need to join your Colombia conference call, they may have trouble dialing a direct phone number to Colombia. They might not know how to place an international phone call or worry about their future phone bills. Meanwhile, people in other countries will likely have the same concerns.

Colombia International Toll-Free access number: 01800 7550003
Bogotá local access number:  14864889

You would need to activate an account to use these access numbers for
a global conference calls with your call guests.

There’s not much you can do about time zone differences other than to be aware of them and attempt to schedule the most convenient global conference calling times.

Poor audio quality is another concern for hosting Colombia conference calls. While Colombia has a relatively modern telecommunications system, it’s important to choose a reliable international conference calling service provider using fiber optic PSTN networks to connect callers from around the world to your Colombia conference call.

Our Colombia Global Conference Calling Solution

Our global conference calling service solves many of the concerns you may have about hosting conference calls from South America. While you’re in Colombia, you’ll use a Colombia access number to join your calls, as will any attendees also in Colombia. Meanwhile, your participants in other countries will use in-country access numbers. For example, a participant from Canada might dial a local Toronto access number, yet the caller will be routed to the same exact audio conference room you just joined from Colombia.

Our superior PSTN networks and international conferencing bridge technologies ensure the best audio quality. All callers are routed via these networks, resulting in crisp, clear voice communications.

Cost concerns are eliminated with our international conferencing plan. If you issue toll free access numbers, your callers won’t be affected by costs whatsoever. If they dial a local access number but are not in that locality, they may incur some tolls but that shouldn’t catch them off guard. We even have a workaround — moderator dial out — for situations where toll free or city-specific access numbers are not available.

Our international conferencing plans for Colombia and dozens of countries around the world are available on a pay-as-you-go basis with competitive per minute rates. These plans are flexible, affordable, and convenient — and they’re perfect for all of your short-term or long-term global conferencing needs.

Why Use the Live Conference Viewer When Hosting a Canada Conference Call?

The live conference viewer is a free, advanced feature of our pay-as-you-go Canada conference calling service.

Toronto Canada SkyscraperOur toll free and local access Canada conference calling service is a pay-as-you-go service that includes several advanced features, one of which is the Live Conference Viewer.

 

 

Included are local access numbers for your
participants in these provinces:

Toronto
Montreal
Vancouver
Quebec
Alberta
Ottawa
Calgary
Halifax

Plus included Canada toll-free number

While you can certainly host and participate in your conference calls without using this tool, you may want to use it when you’re at your desk. Why?

Below are a few of the benefits the live conference viewer offers to conference call moderators.

  • It provides you with a visual representation of attendance — The live conference viewer tallies the number of participants present at any given time, allowing you to know precise attendance numbers. Knowing that 25 out of 27 participants are in the conference room at the scheduled start time, for example, may prompt you to go ahead and start the meeting.
  • You’ll see a detailed attendee list — The names, phone numbers, and other details for each participant are listed, providing you with detailed information as to who is on the call.
  • You’ll have greater control over your entire conference call — Many of the functions available via the live conference viewer are available via keypad commands. However, you may find it easier to use a graphical user interface rather than a series of numeric commands.
  • You can quickly and easily record your Canada conference calls — The live conference viewer includes a mechanism for recording your conference calls. Once you’re logged into your live conference, click the “start recording” button.
  • You can silence open phone lines — Most experience conference call participants understand conference call protocol such as muting their phones when not speaking. However, it’s not unheard of for some lines to be left open. When this happens, ambient noise can quickly become distracting to the group. Using the live conference viewer, you can quickly identify — and silence — the offending connection. The line will be muted, and peace and quiet restored to your Canada conference call.
  • You can lock your conference calls — Keep your conversations and Canada conference calls private by using the security lock to lock a call in progress. Once your conference call has been locked, no one can access it — even if they have the access number and PIN.
  • You can break a main conference into sub-conferences — Let’s say you want to host a companywide conference call with employees across Canada, but you’d also like your individual branches to continue the conversation once your core message has been delivered. You can easily break the conference call into sub-conferences with the live conference viewer.
  • You can join and disconnect others to and from a live Canada conference call at any time — Some attendees may not be need for the duration of a conference call. For example, your CFO may be needed only for the last 10 minutes of a 60-minute conference call. Rather than expecting him or her to listen in for 50 minutes, you could use the dial-out feature to connect the individual to the conference call when the time comes. This is also useful when you have guests who should not be privy to the other discussions on your agenda.

How Affordable are Canada Conference Calls?

Hosting Canada conference calls is one of the most affordable and convenient options available for group communications, especially with local per minute rates as low as 2.9 cents per minute. To give you a better idea about the affordability of holding actual Canada conference calls, we’ve put together a few example scenarios below.

Using Canada Conference Calls for Team Meetings

Imagine having a team of sales managers in cities throughout Canada. By using our audio conferencing service, you could hold team meetings to discuss current projects, sales goals, coaching, and more. How much would such a group audio call cost? Let’s crunch some numbers:

  • 20 minute example length of each conference call
  • 10 attendees using Canada local access at 2.9 cents per minute
  • 5 attendees dialing in with Canada toll free access at 3.9 cents per minute

For a 20 minute Canada conference call with 15 attendees, the total cost would be $9.70

(the call quality is crystal clear with no garbled conversations, voice clipping or drops outs)

Using Canada Conference Calls for Large Teleconferences

Another popular use for Canada conference calls is holding a large teleconference. Let’s say you have a team of 250 sales associates across Canada and would like to deliver a state of the company address along with a brief questions and answers session. In this example, we’ll assume a 30-minute teleconference, attendance of 250 people, and toll free access at 3.9 cents per minute.

How much would such a call cost? $292.50

That’s much more affordable than holding an annual meeting or traveling across the country to visit various branch offices.

Using Canada Conference Calls for Cross-Border Discussions

Here’s one more popular use for Canada conference calls: Canada-USA group audio calls. In this example, let’s say that you need to coordinate a project with several vendors and partners located in both USA and Canada. Conference calling rates for your USA counterparts are even lower than they are in Canada. Thus, our calculations will involve a few more variables. We’ll assume the following:

  • 3 vendors in USA using local access numbers at 1.7 cents per minute
  • 1 partner in USA using toll free access at 2.9 cents per minute
  • 3 partners in Canada using local access numbers at 2.9 cents per minute

For a 30-minute USA-Canada conference call based on the above, you’d incur a total cost of $18.78. It’s a small price to pay to land a lucrative deal or build a successful partnership.

Not only are Canada Conference Calls economical, they’re far less expensive than Bell Canada and convenient for attendees who need local or Canada toll-free access.

With our pay-as-you-go Canada conferencing service, not only can you communicate with a group of people across Canada — or across the border — affordably, hosting these group audio calls is easy. You can do everything needed from your phone’s handset or opt to use our free Live Conference Viewer or free Connect app. Attendees simply dial a local or toll free number and enter the conference PIN. It’s that easy.

Plus, the call quality and reliability of service are outstanding thanks to PSTN fiber optic networks and Avaya conference bridges with triple redundancy. With our pay-as-you-go service, you get advanced features and competitive rates without a contract or long-term commitment.

Kazakhstan Global Conferencing for International Trade

You could give them a direct line, but expect some pushback. A better option would be to use our international conferencing service and give your contacts toll free access numbers for China and Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan Astana RoadsKazakhstan is the world’s 48th largest exporter with crude petroleum being its largest export by far.

To give you some perspective about just how important crude petroleum is to Kazakhstan’s export economy, it accounted for 58 percent of all exports for the country in 2014.

Its next major import, refined petroleum, accounted for just 5.3 percent.

If you import crude petroleum from Kazakhstan, run an import / export business that deals with partners in Kazakhstan, or have the need to interact with partners from around the world, holding global conference calls is an effective way to collaborate on projects, discuss the logistics of a given deal, or negotiate with suppliers. However, holding international conference calls with participants from other countries can be tricky. Our global conferencing plans solve the problem of bringing international callers together into a shared audio conference.

Customers receive all 150 global access numbers to accommodate their global conference call participants.

Included is the Kazakhstan toll-free access number 88003337312

Examples of Global Conferencing in Action

For example, if you’re in the United States and are brokering a deal between a refinery in China (Kazakhstan’s largest export partner) and a crude petroleum supplier in Kazakhstan, your contacts won’t be able to join your global conference call using a standard North American toll free number. You could give them a direct line, but expect some pushback. A better option would be to use our international conferencing service and give your contacts toll free access numbers for China and Kazakhstan.

When it’s time for the Kazakhstan conference call, everyone dials an access phone number specific to their own countries. There are no expensive international calling costs to prevent others from joining your audio conferences and there’s no need to get an operator to assist. Simply make a standard phone call, enter the conference PIN, and begin interacting in a group audio call.

What happens when everyone has joined the conference call and you realize that another party, from another country, should be involved? With our global conferencing plan, you can bring just about anyone, from any country into your international conference calls — at any time. During the call, simply use the moderator dial-out feature to dial and join your new participants.

If you’re still in the planning stages, you can simply invite your international contacts from various countries as you normally would. They’ll then be given instructions on how to join your conference call using a toll free or local access number specific to their own countries.

What Sets Our International Conferencing Service Apart

You’ll find many ways to conduct international and Kazakhstani conference calls, so why use our global conference calling service? Below are a few ways we are different:

  • We use tried-and-true telecommunications technology, PSTN, and not the less reliable VoIP
  • We are a pay-as-you-go global conferencing service with no contracts, no hidden fees, and no monthly fees

International Conference Calling with Sudan

Our live operators are based in USA and are available 24/7 to assist you.

Sudan Khartoum Aaltaib Salih StreetThe Republic of Sudan is located in North East Africa. It is bordered by Egypt, South Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Central African Republic, Chad, Libya, and the Red Sea. Sudan is divided into eastern and western portions by the Nile River and is Africa’s third largest country.

Sudan gained its independence in 1956, but the transition was characterized by military regimes, conflicts, and two lengthy civil wars. A peace agreement, the North-South Peace Agreement, in 2005 eventually led to the independence of South Sudan, which was formalized in 2011 but has yet to be completely settled. U.N. Peacekeeping troops have been in Dafur since 2007 where instability remains.

Ceding South Sudan also impacted Sudan’s economy as about 80 percent of Sudan’s oil fields were located in the south. Prior to the secession of South Sudan, Sudan’s economy was booming, and Sudan was ranked as one of the world’s fastest growing economies. That quickly changed with the secession of South Sudan.

Currently, Sudan is an authoritarian state where the president and the National Congress Party have full political power. Sudan operates under Sharia law, a religious legal system favored by some Islamic countries. Challenges Sudan faces includes refugees from neighboring countries, continued violent conflicts, poor infrastructure, and poverty.

As of July 2015, Sudan had an estimated 36,108,853 people. The official languages of Sudan are Arabic and English, and Islam is the predominant religion. About half of the population relies on subsistence agriculture and lives near or below the poverty line.

Sudan is the largest exporter of gum Arabic in the world, and its economy is now largely dependent on agriculture. Gold mining is a potential economic driver being explored.

Telecommunications in Sudan

Sudan had about 420,000 fixed line telephones in 2014 according to CIA World Factbook. That’s about 1 subscription for every 100 people. That same year, Sudan had 27.8 million mobile phones for a mobile cellular density of 78 mobile phones for every 100 people.

Sudan’s telecommunications system is considered to be well-equipped for the area, and in Sudan Mapthe process of being upgraded. It is made up of various telecom technologies such as microwave radio relay, fiber optics, cable, tropospheric scatter, radiotelephone communications, and domestic satellites. Cellular service arrived in Sudan in 1996.

Today, most major cities in Sudan have extensive cellular coverage.

The fixed line operator in Sudan is Sudan Telecommunication Corporation (Sudatel). Canartel also offers competition in the fixed line market.

Mobile operators in Sudan include Sudan Mobile Telephone Company, MTN, and Canar.

Sudan has one international satellite earth station and more than a dozen domestic ones. The country is linked to EASSy and FLAG fiber optic submarine cable systems.

In 2014, Sudan had 8.5 million Internet users for an Internet penetration rate of 24 percent of its population.

Making International Phone Calls in Sudan

If you are in Sudan and need to make an international phone call, you will need to dial 00 first, which is Sudan’s exit code. You’ll also need to find out the international country code for the country you are calling and dial that before dialing the phone number.

Making International Phone Calls to Someone in Sudan

In order to call someone in Sudan from another country, you’ll first need to dial your country’s exit code followed by Sudan’s international country code of 249. Once those two codes are entered, you can then place your phone call by dialing the phone number.

International Conference Calling — Sudan

You can also invite attendees from around the globe to join your international conference calls. Sudan does not have a toll free or in-country access number, however. The best ways to host or join international conference calls from Sudan are listed below:

  • Use the free Connect app. This app requires a network or wireless connection, and it makes hosting or joining a global conference call simple. The app will dial the international access number for you, eliminating the hassles associated with making international phone calls and providing you with our competitive dial-out rates. This app also includes handy features like call recording and the ability to manually join attendees into your Sudan conference call by dialing them directly.
  • Use moderator dial-out. As the host of a global conference call, you could use the moderator dial-out feature of our international conferencing plan to dial attendees in the Sudan directly and join them to your conference calls. This saves them from having to dial an international access number, and it ensures that you get billed our low dial-out rates.  All your Sudan attendee needs is a telephone.  View our best Sudan dial out plan rate here.
  • Use one of our live operators from USA. Our live operators are based in USA and are available 24/7 to assist you. If you need help joining an attendee from Sudan into your global conference call, they’ll be happy to jump in.

Our Sudan international conferencing plan is available on a pay-as-you-go basis. All callers, from around the world, are joined over a modern, fiber optic PSTN network for the best quality and reliability. Since there’s no contract, there’s also no risk.

Three Easy Ways to Host Conference Calls Across Canada

When it comes to hosing conference calls with Canada, you have several convenient options. Below are three of the easiest ways to host a Canada conference call using our pay-as-you-go Canada conference calling service.

  1. Host a Toll Free Canada Conference Call

Perhaps the easiest option of all is to host a toll free Canada conference call. With this type of conference call, each attendee is given a toll free access number and a conference PIN. Whether in Vancouver, Québec, Montreal, Toronto, or a remote community in the Yukon, your attendees will each dial into your conference call using a toll free number. There are no costs to your participants whatsoever with this method, and you’re billed 2.9 cents per minute per participant. This is about as easy as it gets.

  1. Use a Combination of Local and Toll Free Access Numbers

Another option is available that can still ensure that your attendees can dial in at no cost, or at minimal cost, while lowering your costs a bit: using a combination of local and toll free access numbers. We have local access numbers for certain Canadian cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Alberta, Québec, Halifax, Ottawa, and Calgary. Have your attendees in these cities use local access numbers, which reduces your per minute rate down to just 2.9 cents per minute per participant. For everyone else, issue the toll free access number. Again, this is very easy on everyone involved.

  1. Use the Live Conference Viewer to Dial Attendees in Canada Directly

Our free live conference viewer is yet another easy-to-use option. This is a web application that allows you to manage your conference calls as they take place. You can also use the Live Conference Viewer to manually control the call in progress.

Each of the above options is easy with our service — and it gets even better! You can also extend your Canada conference calls to participants around the world if desired. For example, if you have participants in the United States who need to be on the conference call, you can invite them, too. We have dozens of local access numbers (1.7¢ /min) for cities across the United States as well as toll free access.

Thus, you can use our Canada conference calling service to host:

  • Canada conference calls with participants across Canada only
  • US – Canada conference calls with participants in Canada and USA

This is a pay-as-you-go conference calling plan with no contracts, no monthly fees, and no unexpected charges. We have exceptional audio quality and reliability, and our plans are packed with advanced features.
