How to Use International Conferencing Connect with Subject Matter Experts from Around the World
International Conferencing Connect Use Case | The world has become much smaller thanks to advances in telecommunications. As a result, teams on assignments have much easier access to the brightest minds on the planet.
It’s no longer necessary to fly (or sail) across oceans or traverse continents in order to speak to an international subject matter expert or gather a team of them together into a conference.
Global conferencing tools make it possible to gather in a group audio call at a moment’s notice.
Best of all, you don’t need expensive equipment or a long-term commitment to a pricey conference calling plan. You do not even need a computer, just your phone.
Here’s what you need to know about using global conference calling to connect with subject matter experts.
Global Audio Conferencing Equipment — No computer required. All you and your subject matter experts need is a telephone.
Our international conference calling service uses modern fiberoptic PSTN telecommunications networks to deliver crystal clear audio to all participants no matter where in the world they are located.
This is traditional, tried-and-true technology and not VoIP which often causes glitches, dropouts, echoes, and subpar audio quality. Any phone, including landlines, mobile phones, and Skype, will work with our plans.
Global Access Numbers — Subject matter experts are providing you with a valuable service by sharing their knowledge.
The last thing you want to do is inconvenience them with an expensive international phone call. Our global conferencing plans have local and toll-free access numbers for more than 150 countries around the world.
Bring an expert on the call
For example, if the subject matter expert is located in Paris, France, she can dial a Paris phone number in order to join your conference call. If another expert is joining you from Dubai, he can dial a toll-free phone number for the United Arab Emirates.
Moderator Dial-out — There may be occasions where you’ll need to manually dial the subject matter expert.
For example, if you need an archaeologist’s to share his expert opinion about a discovery made on a construction site, but first need to discuss other aspects of the project with your team, you might want to begin the conference with your team and then call the archaeologist mid-way through the conference call.
Respecting experts time
This respects the expert’s time by not requiring him to sit through conversations that are not relevant.
Our global conference calling plans include a dial-out function where you can quickly and easily dial a participant and then join them into the conference call.
Recording Global Audio Conferences — It’s a good practice to inform participants that the call is being recorded.
Depending on the nature of the call, your subject matter expert may have some conditions on whether the call can be recorded or how you can and cannot use the recording.
If there are no objections, make the most of your time with subject matter experts by recording your conference calls. This is a simple matter of pressing *2 on your handset.
Collaborating with subject matter experts is easy when you have a global conference calling plan.
It’s also affordable thanks to our low rates, pay-as-you-go pricing, and contract-free arrangement. Simply pay for the calls you host as you host them. You can cancel at any time.
