Conference Calling Sub-Accounts, why use them? Still sharing your conferencing plan credentials with your colleagues? With exceptional audio quality, ease of use, and low rates, we don’t blame you. It’s a great way to keep costs down while encouraging audio collaboration. However, we recommend adding sub-accounts to your main account. We can set you up with sub-accounts upon request, each with their own passcode and user identification.
Conference Calling Sub-Account Benefits
The main benefits of using sub-accounts have to do with simultaneous usage and accounting:
- Avoid conflicts — What if you want to hold an ad-hoc conference call but someone else in your organization is currently holding their own conference call? This may not happen often, especially amongst small teams, but as more of your coworkers begin using it, it could become problematic. By issuing sub-accounts, you can avoid this problem. Everyone has their own credentials.
- Cost-accounting — Looking for an easier way to keep track of your team’s conference calling costs? This enables your team to use their own conference calling accounts under one master account. Your billing department will appreciate receiving a single bill, broken down by user ID.
- Project billing — You could even order sub-accounts specific to a project or client. By using a dedicated conference calling account for each project or client, their conference calling costs can be more easily documented.
For example, let’s say you want to document all conference calls related to a lawsuit you’re involved in. Rather than using your main conference calling account for any related calls, use the sub-account. When the time comes to document how much billable time you spent in audio conference calls, simply review the sub-account.
How you use sub-accounts is up to you and your billing practices. Many start with sub-accounts for each department, with the department members sharing access as needed. Others issue sub-accounts to each employee who needs one, allowing for better tracking on an individual level. You may even have a mix of individual, departmental, and project sub-accounts.
Adding sub-accounts to your main conferencing plan brings all the benefits of our service to a wider group of users in your organization while keeping billing simple. Give us a call to add a sub-account to your current plan.
