ClientMatterConference has created a comprehensive audio and web conferencing service for the legal industry in the U.S.
Here’s how it compares to the leading legal industry teleconference providers.
Major Court Conference Call Service Providers
The main competitors in the law firm centric conferencing arena are:
- Soundpath Legal by PGi Legal
- Infinite Conferencing Legal
- AT&T Legal Conference
- Intercall legal conference
Not all are created equal and have different costs and capabilities. ClientMatterConference performs well against the competition for what is most important to attorneys, court reporters, legal assistants and legal professionals across the U.S.
The needs of the Law Firm
Fifty percent of the conferencing companies that cater to the legal industry seem to offer services which essentially are business conferencing services.
For example, AT&T legal conference and Infinite Conferencing legal are standard conferencing plans not specific to the attorney or law firm work flow.
ClientMatterConference is designed to serve attorneys and their support staff. The entire service enables hosting anything from a conference call with the judge or a paralegal conference call to deposition conferencing and hearings, civil motions with built in security, pristine audio quality.
Billable hours used to be an issue but with ClientMatterConference each attorney conference call can be assigned with client and matter billing codes for a specific attorney. All call minutes are identified and itemized. All call data is viewable online through the customer portal and can be sorted by client, matter, attorney, date of call, etc.
Attorney Staff Friendly
Our online portal consists of just one page. Your one-page portal allows you to quickly create ad hock conference rooms complete with client matter billing codes.
No Hidden Fees or Surprises
It’s a pay-as-you-go service with no activation fees and no recurring fees. There are no hidden fees, no monthly fees, no minimum usage requirements, and no contracts.
ClientMatterConference uses exactly the same bridging technology as AT&T with fiber optic networks, not VoIP.
Soundpath Legal by PGi Legal Rates — Soundpath Legal’s Global Meet Audio plan starts at $19 per month, which includes 300 minutes of VoIP or toll minutes. If you want to provide participants with a toll free access number, you’ll pay an additional 7 cents per minute per participant. You’ll pay $19 per month whether you use up your 300 minutes or not. If you go over 300 minutes, you’ll pay five cents per minute for toll calls (add another seven cents per minute for toll free calls) or two cents per minute for VoIP calls — all per minute per participant which is standard for conferencing. Web conferencing is not included, but is available as a separate product with its own fees.
Infinite Conferencing Rates — Legal conference calls using toll free numbers cost just four cents per minute under Infinite Conferencing’s Reservationless Conferencing plan. There are limits, however, such as a maximum number of participants totally just 100. Infinite Conferencing’s Operator Assisted Conferencing Plan will cost you 20 cents per minute per participant. Neither plan includes web conferencing.
Intercall Legal Conference Rates — Intercall offers a pay-as-you-go plan with toll free rates of 10 cents per minute per attendee. You’re limited to just 125 participants on this plan, and web conferencing is not included.
AT&T Legal Conference Rates — If you use AT&T, which uses the same bridging technology that we use, you’ll pay a premium rate. For example, its pay-as-you-go rates for AT&T’s “TeleConference and Web Meeting Service” for reservation less automatic dial-in start at 22 cents per minute per participant for a caller paid dial in number. This increases to 29 cents per minute per participant for toll free dial in numbers. Prices go up from there. Web conferencing is included in this plan and costs 33 cents per minute per connection.
Client Matter Conference Rates — With ClientMatterConference rates are 6.9 cents per minute, per participant for toll free access numbers. You can have as many as 400 participants in your teleconferences. Why pay for a flat rate prepaid plan when you can get our portal and quality for $0.069 per minute?
