Staying Connected in Seattle with Operator Assisted Conference Calls
Operator-assisted conference calls allow organizations in Seattle to stay connected with national and international partners, vendors, employees, bidders, trainees, and other people in expertly run group audio calls.
With an operator (or group of them for larger events) actively monitoring the conference call, the host of the call can focus on the task at hand without the distractions of greeting attendees, verifying attendance, fielding questions, or muting and unmuting lines.
How Seattle Operator-Assisted Conference Calls Work
Seattle operator-assisted conference calls rely on the same underlying technology as our regular conference calls, but have a much more personal touch. Live operators work with you before, during, and after the call, providing a concierge-like experience.
With larger groups, registration becomes paramount. We set this up and manage it for you as well as send out reminders so no one forgets to call in. If they do, our operators can dial out to them and manually join them into the call.
We provide all attendees with local or toll free access numbers, even if they are located in other countries. For the few countries without local or toll free access, our operators will dial those attendees directly.
Beforehand, an operator will meet with you to plan the conference call, go over its requirements, and assign a sufficient number of operators to participate in the call.
As the call begins, operators will greet attendees, gather any required information, confirm they're on the authorized list, and troubleshoot connections. If desired, an operator can present both the introduction and conclusion of the call.
During the call, operators mute and unmute lines, field questions, dial-out to any scheduled speakers, and more. You can also have an operator moderate the Q&A session.
After the call, an operator can compile and send reports, recordings, and transcripts based on the services you've ordered.
Benefits of Operator-Assisted Conferencing in Seattle
Holding a large conference call is more complicated than holding a small one, with the potential for more disruptions and less organization. Seattle operator-assisted conference calls solve this problem, allowing you to focus on your message delivery while we take care of the call’s logistics.
Some of the benefits of Seattle operator-assisted conference calls include:
• Improved conference call security
We make sure only authorized attendees can join the call through the use of passcodes and by screening them as they join.
• Audio monitoring
Background noise, dogs barking, interruptions, and inappropriate outburst are unpleasant interruptions that can quickly derail your audio conference. Lecture only mode and live audio monitoring reduce the risk of audio disruptions leading to a better conferencing experience for everyone.
• Improved attendance
Timely reminders and our operators’ ability to dial participants directly improve conference call attendance.
• Improved engagement
Since operators can conduct polls throughout the conference call, the call becomes more engaging and you can gather attendee sentiment.
