Connecting with Clients in Australia with Two Essential International Communications Services

With our month-to-month global virtual numbers and pay-as-you-go international conferencing plans, there’s no long-term commitment and no obligation to continue using the service.

Skyline Melbourne AustraliaCommunicating with clients in Australia has its challenges, especially if you’re located in North America.

Two essential international communications services can bring down barriers and help you to better connect with your customers Down Under: global virtual numbers and international conferencing. Here’s how they can help.

Global Virtual Numbers Give Your Business a Local Flair

A virtual phone number does not have a physical location. With an Australia global virtual number, the phone number looks like any other local phone number in Sydney, Queensland, Perth, Melbourne, Mackay, or Liverpool, but it rings to the destination phone number of your choice — virtually anywhere in the world.

Thus, if you have customers in Sydney, you could get a virtual Australian phone number local to Sydney yet receive calls in New York or Los Angeles. Toll free Australia virtual numbers are also available.

A virtual phone number will help you to overcome at least two obstacles to calling your business: international calling concerns and potential calling costs. Even your most sophisticated customers may have reservations about calling an international phone number. The number itself may look odd, and they may worry about time differences. While international long distance costs have fallen, an international phone number brings uncertainty to the mix.

By providing your clients with a local Australia phone number, you will take these potential barriers out of the equation. There’s no need for callers to question whether or not they should call you; they simply see the local number and call. It’s that easy!

Holding Group Audio Calls with Your Australian Clients

You may also need to communicate with your Australian clients in a group audio call. For example, if you need to provide training or answer questions about a product or service with two or more participants in Australia or elsewhere, an international conference call is a great way to do so.

However, you want to make the process as easy on your clients as possible. With our international conference calling service, you can do just that. One option is to provide each participant with an international conferencing access number for Australia, which addresses many of the same problems outlined above. Another option is to use our moderator dial out tool to call your Australian attendees directly and join them into your international conference call.

In both cases, the quality of the phone connection is of utmost importance. Our global virtual numbers and all international conference calls are routed over modern, fiber optic telecommunications networks of the highest caliber for crystal clear audio every time. Both services are loaded with advanced features, yet offered at competitive rates with no contracts.

For example, our global virtual numbers include:

  • Local ringtones
  • Simultaneous ringing
  • Advanced voice response
  • Customized greetings
  • Forward faxing
  • Optional call recording
  • And more…

Our international conferencing plans for Australia include:

  • Low per minute rates
  • Toll free and local access numbers for Australia
  • Free Connect app
  • Dial out feature to 196 countries
  • Free MP3 recording
  • Toll free access from 65+ countries
  • 24/7 operator assistance (US-based)
  • And more…

With our month-to-month global virtual numbers and pay-as-you-go international conferencing plans, there’s no long-term commitment and no obligation to continue using the service. Give us a try and find out just how easy it is to communicate with your Australian clients — no matter where in the world you may be!

Holding Cheap International Conference Calls in France

Whether you make one global conference call or thousands of them, you’ll pay only for the minutes you use.

Eiffel Tower
Eiffel Tower

If you’re on a budget but need to hold cheap international conference calls in France, you have several options that will get the job done — but with varying results.

As with most any choice, you’ll need to weigh the pros and cons of holding cheap international conference calls and choose the one that’s best for you.

Below are a few of the most common options currently available along with their advantages or disadvantages.

  • VoIP Conference Calls — VoIP conference calls involve transmitting voice data over the Internet rather than over traditional voice networks. When hosting international conference calls, this type of service has its appeal because it’s perceived as being cheaper than traditional networks. The biggest problem with this option has to do with sound quality. For example, if your hosting a global conference call in France and have participants dialing in from Russia, USA, Turkey, Australia, China, and points beyond, you may have trouble hearing and understanding the participants — and audio delays, stutters, echoes, dropouts, and other sound quality issues are common.

If your top priority is hosting cheap France international conference calls and you’re willing to risk sound quality, then a VoIP solution might be acceptable. That said, they’re not necessarily as cheap as you may think, especially if you must make a long-term commitment and pay a monthly fee whether you use the service or not.

  • Free Global Conference Calling Plans — Another option is to sign up for a free global conference calling plan. However, there’s almost always a catch with free services. For example, the France global conference call may be free to you, but all of its participants may incur hefty international long distance charges. This option can backfire on you because your attendees may opt not to join the call. Some free international conferencing plans require participants to listen to audio ads or may nickel and dime you for desirable optional services. Free plans may or may not use subpar telecommunications networks, making audio quality something you’ll want to be aware of.  With free services, many countries do not have access numbers.

If cost is more important than your relationships with participants, a free global conference calling plan may be good enough.

  • Dedicated International Conference Calling Plans — Purpose built for international conference calls (in France and the rest of the world), dedicated international conference calling plans provide toll free and local access numbers for dozens of countries and bring all attendees into a single shared voice conference room. Depending on the service provider, you may be required to sign up for a one- or two-year plan — and you may have monthly fees whether you use the service or not.

Our pay-as-you-go international conference calling plans bring the right balance of affordability, features, and quality. We have highly competitive rates to countries around the globe with more than 60 countries supported with toll free access numbers under our Legacy plan and more than 100+ supported with toll free access numbers under our Expanded plan.

Whether you make one global conference call or thousands of them, you’ll pay only for the minutes you use. There are no minimums, no monthly fees, and no contracts. Plus, we use the best PSTN telecommunications networks in the world, ensuring the best audio quality.

As you can see, there are many ways to host cheap France conference calls. Which one is right for you? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook.

What You Need to Host New Zealand Conference Calls

If some invitees do not attend due to scheduling conflicts, you can share the recording of the conference call with them after the fact and they won’t miss out.

Wellington New Zealand Tram CapitalIf you have business associates, potential partners, suppliers, vendors, or customers in New Zealand, how do you connect them into one of your conference calls?

International conference calls are more difficult to arrange than domestic conferences for several reasons, making it important to learn what to expect before you schedule your first New Zealand global conference call.

New Zealand Global access numbers

International participants each need a convenient, low cost means of joining your global conference calls. New Zealand callers, for example, won’t be able to dial your North American toll free access number; it simply won’t connect as toll free numbers are not international numbers.

That said, it’s possible to get international toll free conference call access numbers with our global conferencing plans.

In fact, our Legacy and Expanded conference calling plans offer toll free access numbers to dozens of countries around the world.

We also have regional access numbers. For example, you can set up your New Zealand conference calls with either a toll free access number or a local number for Auckland.

If you have participants in Auckland, choosing the Auckland access number is the most cost-effective option.

Tools and Apps

What else do you need for hosting New Zealand conference calls? A world time zone map is helpful, especially if you have participants located all around the globe. It’s virtually impossible to schedule a call time that’s 100 percent convenient for 100 percent of your global participants.

However, awareness of time zone differences can go a long way in scheduling a call that will disrupt the fewest people.

It’s also helpful to have a way to record your calls easily. After all, if some invitees do not attend due to scheduling conflicts, you can share the recording with them after the fact and they won’t miss out.

Our New Zealand conference calling service includes a free call recording feature where you can record your conference calls in MP3 audio format.

You may also want to use an app to manage your global conference calls. Our free Connect app can be used with your PC, Mac, or smartphone (BlackBerry, Android, or iPhone), allowing you to easily connect and manage your New Zealand conference calls. Our free live event viewer is also helpful, putting a variety of useful features, like moderator dial out and call recording, right at your fingertips.

A Modern PSTN Telecommunications Network

Often overlooked, you need a reliable international conference calling service built on modern telecommunications networks. How your callers are connected to your New Zealand conference calls matters more than you may realize.

If you want to be sure that every word comes across crystal clear with no interference or line noise, choose a service provider that uses superior fiberoptic PSTN networks. Our quality is of the highest quality because we’re built on a solid telecommunications infrastructure.

Exceptional 24/7 Support

Finally, with any of our global conference calling plans, if you ever need help, live, US-based operators are available 24/7. We’re here to help ensure that all of your global conference calls are trouble-free.

Sign up for one of our pay-as-you-go New Zealand conference calling plans and you’ll have everything you need to host successful global conference calls.

International Conference Calls from Luxembourg

Hosting international conference calls from Luxembourg is easy and affordable with our pay-as-you-go plan.

Luxembourg CityWith its charming mix of medieval and modern buildings along with its prestige as a financial hub, you could find yourself in Luxembourg for business or for pleasure.

Luxembourg’s government recently announced its intentions to fund asteroid mining research, making Luxembourg even more attractive to those in the space and mining industries.

No matter why you may be in Luxembourg, there’s a good chance you’ll need to communicate with your family or business partners back home — or around the world. One of the easiest and most convenient options is to host international conference calls from Luxembourg. Below are a few tips that can help.

  • Evaluate your international conference calling options. Hotels often offer business services to their guests, but you may find that international conference calling is not an option. Even if it were, you can bet it would be offered at a premium price. If you’ll be working out of a corporate office of one of your Luxembourg-based colleagues, you may be able to use their teleconferencing system. However, the best option is to bring your own international conferencing call service along for the trip. Our pay-as-you-go Luxembourg international conferencing plan is perfect: it’s easy to use, has low rates, and is loaded with high quality advanced features.
  • Determine what you want to accomplish during your global conference calls. It’s important to have a clear goal for each call, invite the right people to join your conference call, schedule the call at a convenient time (this is tricky with a global audience), and actively manage the meeting. We recommend creating an agenda, using a world time zone map, and setting up alerts to help you stay on track.
  • Take advantage of international conference calling technology. Our Luxembourg conference calls are easy to schedule and initiate using standard telephones. They’re even easier if you download the free Connect app or use the online tools included in your online dashboard. You can schedule and join international conference calls with just a few taps or clicks, record your group audio calls with a button press, and even dial participants directly (which further reduces your costs) using the moderator dial-out function.

Hosting international conference calls from Luxembourg is easy and affordable with our pay-as-you-go plan. Since there are no contracts, you can sign up and use the service for the duration of your trip and then cancel when you return. In fact, you don’t even need to cancel your plan because if you do not use it, you will not incur any costs. Many of our users keep their plans and use as needed.

Since our international conference calling plan supports 60+ countries (100+ on our Expanded plan), you can host conference calls from virtually anywhere, not just Luxembourg — and you can have participants connect using local and toll free numbers specific to their countries.

Get Ready for the 2016 Olympics with a Brazil Virtual Number

We offer affordable buckets of minutes for our Brazil virtual phone numbers.

Rio de Janeiro Brazil OlympicsBrazil state-owned tourism agency, Embratur, estimates that 380,000 foreign tourists from around the world will travel to Rio for the 2016 Olympics. If you’re one of them, you’ve got a lot of planning to do including booking a flight and hotel, arranging local transportation, and getting tickets to the games.

One thing you may not have considered — but is highly recommended — is getting a Brazil virtual phone number so you can stay in touch both locally and internationally.

What is a Brazil Virtual Phone Number?

A virtual phone number is one that has no physical limits; you can assign it to forward all incoming calls to any phone including your mobile phone, office phone, hotel room phone, and so on.

With a Brazil virtual phone number, you can get either a toll free or city-specific virtual phone number and then designate your main USA phone number as the ring-to number initially. This is helpful when making arrangements from a distance as it gives your local contacts in Brazil an easy way to reach you or return your calls as you plan your trip.

How You Might Use a Brazil Virtual Number

For example, if you get a Rio de Janeiro virtual phone number, callers in Rio de Janeiro would call you just as they would call any other number in the city. They do not need to dial an exit code, international country code, or complicated international number. They’ll incur only local costs, if any, depending on where they are calling from.

When you arrive in Brazil, you can then change your ring-to number to your local phone number such as your hotel room number or disposable mobile phone. Instead of juggling multiple local phone numbers as you move from one city to the next during your stay, you can simply set up your Brazil virtual phone number so that it rings to the appropriate phone.

Another great potential use for your virtual phone number once you arrive in Brazil is to use it to make cheap and easy phone calls back home. With this option, you’d use any local phone, such as your hotel room phone, to call your family, friends, and business associates back home. Simply change your ring-to number to the number you are trying to call and then dial your Brazil virtual phone number.

This will keep you off your hotel’s pricey international long distance service, and save you from trying to figure out how to dial out of Brazil. Plus, you’ll get the same low international call forwarding rates you’re entitled to based on your virtual phone number plan.

How Our Brazil Virtual Number Plans Work

We offer affordable buckets of minutes for our Brazil virtual phone numbers. Simply pick toll free or the desired Brazilian city and choose the plan with the right amount of minutes for the month. This is a no-contract, month-to-month plan, making it ideal for using during the Summer Olympics or any other short- or long-term purpose.

In addition to competitive rates, our virtual numbers are loaded with advanced features like voicemail, voicemail to email, fax forwarding, sequential call forwarding, simultaneous ringing, and advanced PBX features. The sound quality is exceptional as all incoming calls are routed over modern, state-of-the-art fiberoptic PSTN networks.

If you’re heading to Brazil in the near future, take a look at our virtual number plans and find out just how affordable international phone calls can be.

Tips for Hosting Belgium International Conference Calls

Time is a precious commodity, making it important to start and end your global conference calls on time.

Brussels Belgium Bruxelles imageNeed to host a conference call with international participants in Belgium? Whether you’re in Belgium or your attendees are, international conference calls have a few additional considerations.

Here’s what you need to know about hosting global Belgium conference calls.

  1. Your attendees will need a convenient and cost-effective means of accessing the call. If you use a traditional conference calling service, it most likely doesn’t support international callers. While you could give them a direct number to access the conference, they will incur international long distance charges in order to participate. This is a huge obstacle to overcome! Even if your participants are not concerned about the potential cost of the conference call, they may have trouble connecting.

The best solution is to use an international conference calling service that has local or toll free access numbers for each country. For example, attendees in Belgium will dial a toll free access number for Belgium while those in Chile will dial a different access number specific to Chile.

  1. Telecom quality is essential. While many VoIP and web-based conferencing options exist, they have their downsides. One of the biggest problems with IP conferencing solutions has to do with audio quality. Echoes, sound delays, drop outs, and noise are common issues with these technologies. When you have vast distances, these problems can become even worse. If you want all attendees to hear one another perfectly, make sure to choose a Belgium conference calling service known for its telecommunications quality. We use modern, fiberoptic PSTN telecommunications networks for the best sound quality available.
  1. Factor in time differences when scheduling your Belgium conference call. If most of your attendees are in Eastern Europe, time differences aren’t too dramatic. However, if you have attendees in North or South America and other parts of the world, they could be significant. Use a world time zone map to help you determine the best time to schedule your Belgium global conference call.
  1. Start and end your global conference call as promised. Time is a precious commodity, making it important to start and end your global conference calls on time. If these are recurring teleconferences, your attention to the time limits will be appreciated — and will help to build trust with your attendees. For example, they’ll know that you keep your word and will be more likely to attend future conference calls because they know that they’ll be well managed and run on time.

Use alerts and timers to keep you on track during the call, and make sure to prepare an agenda. If a topic requires more time than you scheduled, consider scheduling a follow-up global conference call rather than allowing your current one to run over.

  1. Finally, familiarize yourself with the international conferencing tools included in your Belgium conference calling plan. These are included to make you a more effective moderator. Below are a few of the most popular ones:
    • MP3 recording
    • Live Conference Viewer
    • Connect App
    • Moderator Dial-Out

Collaborate Internationally with Latvia Global Conference Calls

Our Latvia global conference calling plans eliminate this problem with local and toll free access numbers specific to more than 60, or more than 100 with our Expanded plan, countries.

Riga Latvia imageAre you part of a global team based in Latvia? Whether you’re part of a small virtual group or have colleagues scattered around the globe, hopping on a plane every time you need to collaborate simply isn’t practical.

While online collaboration tools make it easier for teams to work together, there are times when you need the real-time back and forth of an actual conversation. If you’re in Latvia, global conference calls are the perfect solution. Here’s what you need to know to get started.

  • Regular conference calls don’t necessarily work internationally. Sure, you could give your fellow team members the direct phone number for your office in Latvia and use the PBX’s conference calling features, if available, but that would require each global conference call participant to dial an international phone number as well as incur costs. Some may have trouble figuring out how to call your office from their countries, and country exit codes vary, making it hard to provide this information for all of your intended participants. Our Latvia global conference calling plans eliminate this problem with local and toll free access numbers specific to more than 60, or more than 100 with our Expanded plan, countries.
  • Audio quality is crucial. This is not the time to experiment with free international conferencing services that use VoIP. Our Latvia global conferencing service is powered by modern, fiberoptic PSTN networks of the highest quality. You’ll be able to hear one another perfectly despite geographic distances spanning the globe.
  • Hosting Latvia global conference calls is less expensive than it sounds. You’ll be pleasantly surprised as you browse our competitive international conference calling rates. For example, our conferencing rates for Riga access numbers are currently just 10 cents per minute. We offer both toll free and local numbers for dozens of countries. You can control your costs even further by using the dial out feature which gives you even lower per minute rates. Plus, there are no minimum usage requirements, monthly fees, or surprises. Simply pay for the minutes you use, as you use them.
  • There’s no need to sign a long-term contract. Our Latvia global conference calling plans are available on a no-contract basis. They are truly pay as you go. If you use our service to make 100 conference calls a month, great. If you use it to make one conference call and never make another call again, that’s fine too. You can use it or not use it as you see fit.

These are but a few thoughts to keep in mind as you consider international conference calling services in Latvia. We’re here to answer any questions you may have and help in any way. Sign up for an account today and find out just how affordable and easy it is to collaborate using Latvia conference calls.

Hosting Botswana Global Conference Calls

Our Botswana global conference calling rates are extremely competitive, as our all of our international rates.

Gaborone Botswana image
Gaborone Botswana

Though Botswana is one of the world’s most sparsely populated countries, it is home to over 2 million people. In the middle of the last century, Botswana was one of the world’s poorest countries.

That, however, has changed. In fact, Botswana is now one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. It has a modest standard of living and a high gross national income.

If you’re in Botswana for business, for a visit, on a medical mission, or for any other purpose, you may need to stay in touch with colleagues from around the world. One affordable option is to host an international conference call from Botswana.

Here’s how to do it.

1.     Sign up for our pay-as-you-go expanded international conference calling plan. Our expanded plan offers toll free access numbers for Botswana as well as local and toll free access numbers for more than 100 other countries. With this plan, you can host an international conference call from within Botswana and have colleagues join you from countries far and wide. No matter how far apart your attendees are, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to hear them clearly thanks to our fiberoptic PSTN telecommunications networks.

2.    Use our free Connect app to manage your Botswana global conference calls. This app makes it easy to initiate and manage conference calls. It includes a variety of helpful tools such as call recording or moderator dial out.

3.    Hold international conference calls on the fly or pre-schedule them. There’s no need to reserve time with our Botswana conference calling service, but you can if you prefer. We have live, US-based operators standing by 24/7 to assist you as needed.

4.    Provide your international participants with local (to them) access numbers. Your colleagues may have concerns about how to connect to your Botswana conference calls. With our global conference calling service, you can put their concerns to rest by giving them country-specific access numbers. For example, if you have attendees in Canada, rather than dialing an international long distance number to connect to your Botswana conference call, they can dial a Toronto access number or a Canadian toll free number to join your call.

5.    Use our service as needed. Our global conference calling plans are available on a pay-as-you-go basis with no contracts. If you only need to host a single conference call from Botswana, there’s no need to sign up for a long-term plan. There are no minimum usage requirements, no monthly fees, and no early termination penalties. Simply host international conference calls when needed and pay only for the minutes you use.

Our Botswana global conference calling rates are extremely competitive, as our all of our international rates. If you want to reduce your costs even further, make sure to use the moderator dial out feature to dial some participants directly as those rates are even lower.

  • Give callers in Sweden a toll free number to reach you internationally — Both local and toll free numbers for Sweden are available. With a toll free Sweden virtual phone number, your callers will dial a traditional toll free number that works within Sweden; however, their calls will be routed to whichever destination phone number you have configured. The destination phone can be located anywhere on the planet including in Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, North America, Australia, or any of the island nations.
  • Get competitive local and toll free international rates from Sweden to any phone — Our Sweden virtual phone numbers plans include bundles of minutes at highly competitive international call forwarding rates.

  • Enjoy month-to-month access to your virtual phone numbers — Our virtual phone plans are offered on a month-to-month basis with no contracts or cancellation penalties. This is a great way to get the best rates for a short-term or long-term plan. Whether you need a Sweden virtual phone number while you’re on vacation, as part of a market expansion, or to communicate with loved ones, you can use the service for as long as you need it without worrying about long-term contracts or early termination fees.
  • Get access to advanced calling features. Our Sweden virtual phone numbers include robust calling features such as fax forwarding, sequential and simultaneous ringing, IVR/PBX, advanced call forwarding, and more. Optional call recording and optional rollover minutes are also available.
  • Start a business in Sweden without a large capital expenditure — Have you been thinking of serving the Swedish market with goods or services? Using a Sweden virtual phone number is a great way to establish a business presence in the country without actually moving to Sweden or staffing a physical office. Use the virtual phone number to appear local, but route your incoming calls to your main office or call center located in another country.

There are many ways you could benefit from a virtual phone number in Sweden. How have you used virtual numbers to communicate internationally?

Australia Global Conference Calling Benefits

Our Australia global conference calling plans feature advanced calling features and live event viewing tools.

Darling Harbour Australia imageAs tempting as it may be to fly to Australia periodically to meet with your business partners, regional employees, family members, and associates, international travel is costly and time-consuming.

Australia global conference calls can take the place of many of your trips, saving you both time and money while simultaneously allowing you to communicate and collaborate with a group. Below are some of the many benefits of hosting Australia global conference calls.

  • Conferencing calling with Australian participants is fast and easy. Unlike booking a flight and then traveling, you can connect to an Australian global conference call on a whim. Whether a business emergency needs your immediate attention or you have a brilliant idea to share with your colleagues, initiating and holding a global conference call can be done in mere minutes.
  • Global conference calls are less expensive than you may realize. Our pay-as-you-go Australian global conference calling plans feature advanced features and competitive international conferencing rates.

You can even issue toll free international numbers for participants in dozens of countries, making it easy and toll free for your international attendees.
  • Holding international conference calls in Australia and around the globe helps to build relationships. Since the cost of global conferencing is so much lower than in-person meetings, you’ll be more likely to hold more frequent teleconferences. Feel free to hold weekly global calls with your international staff — or daily calls if your business dictates a higher frequency. If you have family members living in Australia, bring the entire family together and keep those bonds strong with regular group calls. Even if you have family in USA, France, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, and Australia, you can all gather together in an Australian conference call. The hardest part will be scheduling a time that accounts for all the time differences.
  • Having an international conference calling plan provides you with flexibility. Our international conference calling plans provide support for more than 60 to 100 plus countries (depending on the plan you choose). This means that not only can you hold global conference calls in Australia, you can hold them around the world. Whether you’re located in Australia, the Philippines, Mexico, Italy, Egypt, or anywhere else in the world, you can both host and attend meetings.
  • Our Australia global conference calling plans feature advanced calling features and live event viewing tools. You can manage your conference calls via our free Connect app or our online live event viewer as well as use traditional phone menus or ask the live operator for assistance. You can also record your calls with a quick click of the button.
  • Superior phone networks mean that you can hear everyone clearly. We use fiberoptic PSTN networks for all international conference call attendees. These modern networks deliver the best audio quality and are far superior to VoIP.

These are but a few of the many advantages of our Australian international conference call plans. Sign up for an account today and pay as you go with no contracts and no cancellation fees.

Bahamas International Conference Call Tips

bahamas lighthouse caribbean sea atlantis travelPlanning a business retreat or family vacation in the Bahamas? Or have an office staffed in the Bahamas?

Global conference calls could help you stay in touch with your colleagues back home. Get the most out of our global conferencing plans by using the tips below.

  1. Sign up for a pay-as-you-go global conferencing plan. Our international conference calling plans offer support for the Bahamas, and they’re available on a pay-as-you-go basis. This means that you only pay for the minutes you use; nothing more, nothing less. There are no minimums, no contracts, and no cancellation fees. Once you’re in the Bahamas, you can initiate a Bahamas conference call with your office back home as needed. Should you find that one conference call is more than enough, you don’t need to worry about canceling your plan. On the other hand, if a crisis erupts, you can host as many global conference calls as you need without worrying about going over your limit.
  1. Plan your global conference calls just as you’d plan any meeting. While our rates are competitive for the Bahamas and beyond, no one wants to spend more time on a group audio call than necessary. If you’re on vacation, especially, you’ll want to spend as little time as possible. Spend a few minutes planning your agenda for the call and then stick to it once your teleconference begins. Not only will a well-run conference call result in less time spent, it will reduce the overall cost of the call.
  1. Take advantage of advanced teleconferencing tools. Our Bahamas global conference calling plans come with a wealth of features and advanced tools. Make sure to get acquainted with the features available, and then use them! The MP3 recording feature is useful if you need to record your calls for legal compliance, training, or other purposes. It’s also helpful for sharing with attendees who were unable to attend. If you are using your conferencing service to conduct training calls, you can use the recordings to train others — including future employees. The online live event viewer is also a useful tool that allows you to direct dial participants, mute and unmute individual lines, record the call, lock the conference, and more.
  1. Schedule your Bahamas conference calls with time zone differences in mind. If your participants are on the East Coast, time zone differences aren’t as dramatic as they are for participants on the other side of the world. Use a world time zone map to help you schedule the best time for your global conference calls in the Bahamas.

If you need any help before, during, or after your Bahamas international conference call, assistance is just a click away. Live operators are readily available to assist. Whether you need global conferencing for just a few weeks or plan on holding global conference calls on an ongoing basis, you’ll appreciate the flexibility, quality, and affordability of our plans.

Saudi Arabia International Conferencing as an Alternative to an In-Country Visit

The strong market and the dangerous climate bring a dilemma to those doing business in Saudi Arabia.

By B.alotaby - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=44911748Saudi Arabia is a large export market for the United States and other countries, and its economy is diversifying.

Its IT market alone is estimated to be worth $4.6 billion (USD). Saudi Arabian infrastructure projects such as the North-South railway and the Saudi Land Bridge are worth another $30 billion in potential contracts. Saudi Arabia’s healthcare market is also large and potentially lucrative to external firms.

At the same time, Americans and Westerners in general have valid concerns about traveling to Saudi Arabia. In fact, the U.S. Department of State urges US citizens to carefully consider the risks due to security threats, previous attacks, and violence near the Yemen border.

The strong market and the dangerous climate bring a dilemma to those doing business in Saudi Arabia. Opportunity knocks, but it’s not necessarily safe to answer the door. And if you happen to be a female business professional, traveling to Saudi Arabia could also mean being treated differently.

Avoid these Problems by Holding a Saudi Arabia Conference Call

International conference calls allow you to communicate with associates, business partners, and customers in Saudi Arabia without having to step foot in the country. When you hold a Saudi Arabia conference call, you can discuss business without having to be concerned about your personal security or acceptable attire.

Even during times of political stability, holding international conference calls is a smart and practical choice. With an international conference call, you can have callers from around the world join together to discuss any number of topics without requiring anyone to travel.

The cost of hosting an international conference call in Saudi Arabia is small compared to travel costs. Imagine flying just five executives from the US to Saudi Arabia for a meeting. Not only do you have airfare times five, you also need to pay for hotels, meals, and local transportation. You may even need to rent a conference room to hold your in-person meeting. Your in-person meeting could easily cost tens of thousands of dollars.

In contrast, hosting a global conference call with Saudi Arabia is much cheaper. To connect USA participants, it would cost less than 3 cents per person per minute using our current rates. To connect Saudi Arabia participants, you could choose either a toll free or dial out option which are currently just 68 cents and 19 cents per person per minute.

So, let’s say you have five American and five Saudi Arabian participants in a one-hour conference, your total cost for the international Saudi Arabia conference call would be as low as $64.80, broken down as follows:

The chairperson is located in the U.S.

60 minute international conference call with 10 conferees
Five USA Participants at $0.026 per person per minute – $7.80
Five Saudi Arabia participants at $0.19/min dial-out rate per person per minute – $57.00

Hosting Saudi Arabia international conference calls also allows for instant communications, something you can’t achieve with in-person conferences. If you have a crisis or need to coordinate a new initiative, you need to communicate sooner rather than later, and an international conference allows for that.

Hosting Austria International Conference Calls

PSTN networks are traditional fiberoptic networks. They are tried and true and known for their reliability and sound quality.

Vienna Austria Evening imageIf you have business associates, family members, or friends in Austria, global conference calls are a great way to stay in touch, build relationships, and control your costs at the same time.

However, not all global conferencing plans are built equally. Here’s what you need to know about hosting global conference calls in Austria.

International Conferencing Calling Plans Vary

First, some international conferencing plans charge you a set fee — whether you use the service or not. Others are available on a pay-as-you-go basis. Our Austria global conference calls are pay-as-you-go — and you pay only for the minutes you use. There are no minimums and no cancellation fees. Our international calling rates are among the most competitive you’ll find. Plus, you get loads of free, advanced features such as MP3 recording, live operator assistance, and free online event viewing tools.

Another important consideration when choosing an Austria global conference call service is whether the service uses VoIP or PSTN networks. VoIP conference calls are routed over the Internet. While good from a cost perspective, VoIP calls often have sound quality issues like dropouts, echoes, delays, stutters, and line noise.

PSTN networks are traditional fiberoptic networks. They are tried and true and known for their reliability and sound quality. If you’ll be holding important business conference calls in Austria, we strongly urge you to look at PSTN-based conference calling plans.

Toll Free Access Numbers are Available for Attendees in Austria and Around the World

Toll free numbers typically work only within a given region of the world. For example, callers in Austria cannot connect to a USA business using the USA toll free number the business may have. Instead, they must call the business’s direct number and incur international long distance charges. When you host an international conference call, you can’t simply give your international callers your business’s toll free number because, unless they are in your country, the number will not work.

There’s a workaround to this: choose a global conference calling service provider that offers toll free support to the countries your call’s participants are located in. We issue toll free numbers unique to various countries and then use international call forwarding to route those callers to your conference room.

This means that if you’re hosting a global conference call in Austria but have attendees in France, South Africa, Canada, Japan, and Singapore, your individual callers will all receive toll free numbers unique to their countries. They will not need to dial a foreign number, nor will they incur international long distance tolls when they connect to your Austria conference call.

It’s up to you, and there’s no need to worry about violating the terms of the contract because there’s no contract.
  • Schedule the South Korea conference call. Scheduling international conference calls can be tricky due to time differences. Use a world time map to help you select the best time for your call, keeping in mind that even the dates could be different if attendees are located on the other side of the International Date Line.
  • Take advantage of useful international conference calling features. Our plans include a variety of useful features that can help your South Korea global conference call be successful.

Holding International Conference Calls in Portugal

Whether you need to host a global conference call in Portugal with international suppliers, partners, customers, colleagues, family, or friends, doing so is easy when you have an affordable, pay-as-you-go Portugal international conferencing plan

Lisbon PortugalWhether you live in Portugal or plan on traveling there for business or pleasure, holding Portugal international conference calls is a convenient way to stay in touch with a group of people from around the world.

Holding international conference calls requires each attendee to dial an access number to join the call. However, unless you use a dedicated international conferencing service provider like aitelephone.com, your attendees will need to dial a Portuguese phone number. This could be off-putting to some attendees.

For example, some may wonder how much it will cost them to connect to your Portuguese global group call. Others might be confused because the Portuguese access number looks different from phone numbers in their own countries.

By using an international conference call service, you can provide your international attendees with local access numbers — or even toll free numbers if so desired. Our international conferencing service is an easy-to-use, pay-as-you-go service that you can use as needed with no worries about long-term contracts or minimum usage requirements.

Highlights include:

  • Available Portugal access numbers include Portugal toll-free and Lisbon local

  • Toll free access numbers in 150+ (depending on the plan) countries

  • No contracts, no minimums

About Portugal

Portugal flag imagePortugal was once a global maritime power, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries. Alas, a series of events changed that including a massive earthquake, the Napoleonic Wars, the independence of its wealthiest colony (Brazil), and a revolution in 1910 that deposed Portugal’s monarchy only to replace it with repressive governments. Democratic reforms came to Portugal in the mid-1970s after a military coup.

Today, Portugal has a population of more than 10.8 million according to July 2014 estimates. Portugal has a diversified, service-based economy with many formerly state-controlled sectors such as financial and telecommunications now liberalized. Portugal joined the EMU (Economic and Monetary Union) in 1999. Some of Portugal’s largest trade partners include Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, UK, USA, and Angola.

Telecommunications in Portugal

The CIA World Factbook estimates that Portugal had 4.558 million mainline telephones in use in 2012 and another 12.312 mobile cellular subscriptions. Portugal has more mobile subscribers than it has residents.

Portugal has a state-of-the-art telecommunications network with broadband and high-speed capabilities. Domestically, its phone system consists of an integrated network of coaxial cables, open-wire, microwave radio relay, and domestic satellite earth stations. Portugal is connected to the rest of the world via submarine cables and 3 satellite earth stations.

Portugal had 5.168 million Internet users in 2009, putting it in 44th place in comparison to the rest of the world. Cafes, post offices, hotels, conference centers, and other public areas often offer free and paid Internet connections to Portuguese residents.

The telecommunications industry in Portugal is overseen by the regulatory body known as ANACOM. Competition in the telecommunications industry dates back to 1989 when legislation was written to allow the introduction of competition nine the telecom services sector. Portugal’s Telecommunications Act compiled the general principles for telecommunications into a single piece of legislation. The act made it the state’s responsibility to guarantee the existence and availability of fundamental services with the stipulation that the exploitation of services involving the use of complementary telecommunications infrastructures could be carried out by properly licensed public and private companies.

Several operators, CTT, TLP and Marconi, had to be re-organized, a process that reportedly brought its share of controversy, backdoor deals, and mergers. Portugal Telecom emerged and continues to be a major player in the Portuguese telecom market.

Some of the major telecommunications providers in Portugal include:

Cabovisão, Oni Telecom, Portugal Telecom, Telepac, and TIMWE. Mobile operators include: Meo, NOS Comunicações, UZO, and Vodafone Portugal

Whether you need to host a global conference call in Portugal with international suppliers, partners, customers, colleagues, family, or friends, doing so is easy when you have an affordable, pay-as-you-go Portugal international conferencing plan.

Argentina Global Conference Calling Tips

Buenos Aires Catalinas imageIf you’re in Argentina, or if you have colleagues or partners in Argentina, global conference calling is a great way to communicate with a group from around the world.

While you’re likely familiar with hosting regular conference calls, use the tips below to get the most out of Argentina global conferencing.

  1. Sign up for an international conference calling plan. While you could theoretically host an Argentina conference call from your main office, your international participants need a convenient means of dialing in. Requiring callers from other countries to dial an Argentina access number places a burden on them, which could discourage participation. By signing up for an Argentina global conference calling plan that supports most countries, you’ll be able to give your attendees an access number (toll free or local) specific to their countries.
  1. Use online conferencing tools to manage your global conferences. Our live conference viewer is a convenient online tool that you can use to more easily manage your conference calls as they occur. You’ll see each participant who’s on the call as well as be able to mute and unmute their lines. You can also lock your conference call once everyone’s on the line to prevent others from joining in without your knowledge. If you need to connect a participant who has not dialed in, you can do so directly from within the tool.
  1. Plan your agenda. Nearly all successful meetings start with a well-planned agenda. The same is true of global conference calls. Plan your meeting out on paper first to ensure that you allot sufficient time to cover each agenda item. If your call is getting too lengthy on paper, consider splitting the conference call into a series of shorter calls.
  1. Consider time differences. Global time differences make scheduling conference calls challenging. For example, while it may be Monday morning in Argentina, it’s still Sunday night in other parts of the world. Use a world time zone map to help find the best time for your global group conference call.
  1. Record your conference calls. It’s often helpful to record your conference call. Not only can you review the recording afterward, you could retain it for legal or historic purposes. Recording Argentina conference calls with our international conferencing service is a simple matter. Though international laws vary as far as recording disclosures, it’s considered a good practice to inform participants that the call is being recorded.
  1. Share your recording (if appropriate). Depending on the nature of the conference call, you may want to share your recording with participants, absentees, or even future participants. For example, if the conference call’s purpose was to train your customer service agents, you could share the recording with attendees so that they can review the information as needed. Likewise, your future hires could benefit from listening to the recording. On the other hand, if the call was confidential in nature, you’ll want to secure the recording accordingly.

These are but a few tips that you can use to host more effective international conference calls in Argentina, or any country for that matter.
