The Audio Conference Meeting
- Conference Calling for worldwide collaboration
- No matter where attendees happen to be, collaboration with others in many countries is a simple matter of dialing
a local toll free phone number and
entering a passcode.
For international collaboration, conferencing remains the solution of choice for several reasons including:
Call Quality - Using the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) ensures that
all participants connected to the conference meeting can hear one another thanks to the superior call quality
that PSTN is known for.
Accessibility - Attendees do not need a computer, tablet, Internet connection, or video
conferencing equipment to join the call. All they need is a phone, and all phone types including landlines, VoIP
phones, and mobile phones are supported.
Toll Free Access - Your call guests can dial-in Toll
Free from 65 countries and the Expanded Plan with over 100 toll-free
country access. If a toll free number is not available in the attendee's country, the Host can use the included
dial-out feature and add them into the meeting in progress. Both methods are at no cost to the participant.
Host Dial-Out - An invaluable free feature that permits participation with any guest, in
any country. With Toll Free access numbers and the Dial-Out feature enabled, there are no limits to hosting a global
global phone meeting.
Voice Interaction - Instead of reading messages on discussion boards or short texts in
private social media networks, attendees speak to one another. This breaks the ice, builds relationships, and provides
participants with context and verbal cues.
Affordability - By holding calls regularly, geographically diverse team members
can brainstorm, collaborate, and solve problems without having to travel.
Flexibility - The conference is also extremely flexible. Not only
can you initiate a conference call on demand, you can manually dial participants (or set up automatic dial out),
record calls for future reference, participate in conferences from virtually anywhere, and much more.
Offshore Conference Call Uses
- The conference meeting has many uses for businesses of all sizes.
Some of the more common uses include:
Team meetings and collaboration - Team members from around the world can join the global
conference call, exchange ideas and information, and work together to overcome business challenges.
Whether your team consists of a few offshore designers or dozens of regional sales managers located on every continent,
team meetings using an international collaboration can ensure that everyone is working together toward a common
Mergers and acquisitions - The global conference tool is a vital communications assist
as two companies become one, and even long before the deal is complete. From discussions with lawyers and brokers
to making executive decisions and beyond, conference calling is a convenient, fast, and effective way to
facilitate global discussions.
Supply chain management - Make sure vendors can deliver by holding regular phone meetings between
production managers and vendors from around the world.
Training and Education - The worldwide teleconference call is often used as a training
and educational tool. Whether you need to train international
staff members or customers, a teleconference is an excellent, cost-effective way to deliver lectures, seminars,
motivational speeches, and question-and-answer sessions. In addition, you can record these sessions and use them
over and over either internally or externally. For example, your human resources department may require new employees
to listen to an orientation that originally took place as a conference. Meanwhile, a motivational speaker may opt
to create a pod cast of a previous global call.
Focus groups - Find out what your customers or prospects think about your products and
services by holding international calls. This is a cost-effective way to hear their thoughts. Since you can record
the meeting exchange,
you can also refer back to it as needed.
- Getting the Most out of Overseas Conferencing
- Like any tool, the global conferencing must be put to good use. To get the most out of your international
plan, take advantage of it and use it regularly to communicate with your team, business brokers, lawyers, partners,
vendors, and customers.
Enable automatic dial out - If you hold overseas conference meeting with the same
group regularly, enable the UBlast feature and enter each attendee's phone number into your account. Once set up,
you can immediately establish a conference on demand and have UBlast dial all participants automatically.
Use toll-free international phone numbers - By offering toll free access to the global
call, you'll encourage participation because participants won't be worried about how much the call will cost. Toll
free worldwide rates are much lower than you may realize, and there's no travel required.
Understand calling rates - International toll free rates vary based on each participant's
country. Compare the toll free rates for each country and determine which participants should be dialed directly.
The global conference meeting is an affordable, convenient, and flexible communications
tool for businesses of all sizes. Whether you need a better way for your geographically diverse team to collaborate
or want to share your knowledge with participants around the world, hosting international an conference is easy
