Above is an example of a conference call with attendees located in multiple countries.

A U.S. direct conferencing bridge access number is provided as well as 119 global access numbers.

The call example does not include savings possible if the participant/s can dial-in directly using their own VoIP connection from their country such as Skype or other IP phone services.

Any connection option can be used

Conference Call Access Options
As an example, one of your participants can join your call from Australia using the Australia Toll Free number.

On the same conference call, the chairperson could dial-out to participants in China or Ireland -or any country using the optional dial-out feature.

Another guest can dial-in using their own VoIP connection from any country.

We send you a standard U.S. access number which can be dialed from any country.

Most customers enjoy using the
Toll Free access numbers because of the convenience to the international participants.

In fact the majority of international conference calls are normally international 'Toll Free' access conferences.

If your conference meeting has guests located in a country on the Toll Free country list, then you do not need the other access options.

That said, there are situations that require the use of the 'Dial-Out' feature.

For instance, a participant that may be located in a country that does
not have a Toll Free access number and you may not want that participant to join your call using the supplied U.S. toll number.

The Dial-Out feature enables the chairperson to use our conferencing facility to dial the attendee and place them into the call.

When the attendee receives a Dial-Out call from the host, it is an 'inbound' call to that participant. No passcodes are necessary for that dial-out attendee to join. They just answer the phone when it rings to immediately participate.

Using Skype or other VoIP provider to access your conference call

Another strategy used by some of our customers is to ask a participant to access our conferencing bridge number directly from their country using Skype or some equivalent VoIP service that may be available to them.

Your cost would be reduced because the Toll Free rate from their country would no longer be in the equation. It would be replaced with 1.6
¢ cents per minute.

Any of your participants
that have access to an inexpensive calling plan to call the US, can dial-in directly to our U.S. conference bridge as an alternative to using the supplied Toll Free access number for their country.


Use the 'dial-out' option if an access number is not listed for the country where your meeting guest is located.

The dial-out rates are
typically lower than Toll Free access rates depending on the country of the attendee.

The participant does no dialing and simply picks up the ringing phone to hear and participate

Leader Dial-Out Feature
