Using International Conference Calling
Making international calls to or from France is relatively easy and affordable.
However, when it comes to making international conference calls between individuals in France and other countries,
it becomes challenging due to differences in dialing conventions.
For example, if you're hosting a conference call in the United States with participants in France or one of its
overseas regions, your French attendees won't be able to connect using your US toll free number. Likewise, callers
in France may be concerned about the cost of dialing your US phone number directly. They might not even know how
to dial out of the country without operator assistance.
You can overcome these obstacles by using an international conference calling service with support for France and
other countries involved in your call. You can host your France group call from any country, but issue different
access numbers for your attendees to use.
For example, if you host a U.S. conference with attendees from France, Italy, South Africa, Ecuador, and Kenya,
your attendees will be able to dial toll free or local access numbers specific to their countries.
Optionally, as the host of the call, you could use the "dial out" feature to direct dial participants
in countries where local or toll free access is not supported. For example, if you have participants in Mayotte,
you could dial them direct and patch them into the France global conference call.
Using direct dial out often results in lower costs, too. If you notice that a participant is from
a country with higher per minute rates than you'd like, you'll often find that dial out rates are significantly
lower per minute.
Another advantage of using direct dial to connect attendees to your France global conference call is that you don't
have to wait for them to remember it's time. Simply dial and connect. We also have a Connect App, which makes dial
out even easier.
No matter how your participants connect to the France conference call, you'll have access to a variety of useful
features - all included as part of your pay-as-you-go international conferencing plan. Some of the more popular
features are listed below:
- No contracts, no monthly fees, no activation charges,
