What is a Teleconference?

International Teleconference UserA teleconference is a conference call, seminar, meeting, or other live exchange of information that takes place over a telecommunications system.

Phone teleconferencing is the most common form of teleconferencing. Multiple attendees participate in the teleconference call from various remote locations by dialing a designated phone number and then entering an access code.

A variety of teleconference services are available to host a domestic or global

In addition to phone teleconferencing, Web and video teleconferencing add a visual element to the mix. Depending on your preferences, you can use Web/video conferencing with VoIP audio over the Web or in conjunction with existing toll free or dial out teleconference services.

How a Teleconference Enables Collaboration

When you have a geographically diverse team, a teleconference brings everyone together for a live voice discussion without requiring expensive travel or excessive business interruptions such as the logistics involved in arranging a face-to-face meeting in another city or country.

An international teleconference call allows your team to share ideas, brainstorm, solve problems, assign duties, learn new information, and build camaraderie. You can treat a phone teleconference just as you would any other collaborative meeting by following an agenda, moderating discussions, and prompting attendees to contribute to the conversation.

An audio teleconference allows for live interaction and fewer misunderstandings thanks to verbal cues such as tone and voice inflection.

What if you have attendees from all over the world?

You can host an international teleconference and provide separate phone numbers for each country, all of which connect to the same global teleconference bridge.

For example, your Australian callers would dial an Australia Toll Free teleconference phone number; your UK callers would have a different UK teleconference Toll Free phone number; and your Indonesian callers would have their own Indonesia teleconference phone number; yet all callers will be connected to the same teleconference call.

Types of Teleconferencing

As you consider the possibilities of collaborating internationally with a phone teleconference, it's important to understand the main audio teleconference plans so that you choose the right type for your needs. The main types are local access and toll free teleconferencing.
  • Local access teleconference - This is an affordable teleconferencing option because callers are given local access phone numbers. Though typically less expensive for the host (or even free depending on the plan), be aware that that individual callers may incur toll charges which could limit participation.

  • Toll free teleconference - By providing callers with toll free phone numbers, callers do not incur charges. Instead, the host pays for the cost of the conference call much like with regular toll free phone calls. To see just how affordable a toll free teleconference can be, use the online calculator to estimate the cost.

  • Unlimited flat rate teleconference - An unlimited flat rate teleconference is a good choice for companies that aren't interested in providing toll free access numbers. With an unlimited plan, you pay a flat monthly fee based on the number of participants and enjoy an unlimited number of audio teleconference calls each month. This also provides you with price certainty.

Why not host an International Teleconference Meeting?

ManagerThe benefits of utilizing a teleconference to communicate with associates and existing or potential clients are numerous especially these days when in-person meeting costs are going through the roof.

Teleconcerencing not only enables a business to converse in real-time with participants, they do so at bargain rates and significant costs savings for all concerned.

Teleconferencing is also very effective because issues can be discussed in real time. And with international toll free access, it's easier than ever to host an international teleconference.

Because teleconference costs continuing to decline and many other costs are rising, including airfare, hotels, food, car rental, etc., hosting an international teleconference can be the most cost saving decision in business telecommunication history.

Overcoming Teleconferencing Challenges

Affordable teleconferencing brings people together without the expense of face-to-face meetings. However, it's not without its challenges.

Fortunately, most phone teleconferencing challenges can be solved.

For example, what if you have a participant in a country not supported by toll free teleconferencing?

Use the international "dial out" feature to dial any callers that do not have toll free access to your teleconference. You can even preprogram this feature to dial these callers automatically at the scheduled teleconference time.

Another challenge with a toll free international teleconference involves scheduling the call so it's at a convenient time for most attendees.

Unfortunately, if participants are located all around the globe, it's unlikely that your global teleconference time will be completely convenient for all attendees.

The workaround to this is to use the MP3 call recording feature for those callers who can't attend live or use a revolving schedule so that next time the teleconference is at a better time for those who were inconvenienced earlier.
