How a Toll-Free International Conference Calling Works
Once you have a pay as you go conference calling plan, you can begin scheduling and hosting conferences.
When you host a global conference call, you first schedule a time for the call to take place. This can be a point
in the future or immediately. You can setup the toll free overseas conference call online using your account management
tools or request operator assistance.
From there, you will need to invite your participants and let them know what toll free number they need to dial
in order to connect to the worldwide toll-free conference call. This number will vary depending
on which countries are involved.
For example, attendees from Hong Kong will dial a specific Hong Kong Toll Free number while attendees from Italy
will dial a different Italian Toll Free access number.
Over 60 countries are supported. The toll free list of the actual numbers is immediately sent to the customer upon
Alternately, you could use the dial out feature
to connect callers from unsupported countries for global international conference calling.
The dial out feature is also an option when you want to reduce the total cost of the call because dial out rates
tend to be lower per minute than the toll free rates for some countries. You may want to set up a blend between
toll free access and dial out.
International Conference Calls
Once the conference
call is scheduled and the participants invited, each participant will need to connect to the call at
the correct time using the assigned toll free number (or wait to be called by the leader using dial out) and entering
the conference call's passcode. This passcode connects all callers to the conference. Once everyone has checked
in, the call can begin.
Because this is a toll-free conference call, the owner of the account is responsible
for paying for the toll free and dial out access on a per minute, per participant basis.
For example, if you hosted a toll free global conference call with five participants and it lasted 30 minutes,
your account would be billed for 150 minutes.
The per minute rates for each participant will vary depending on which countries are involved.
Another common issue with conference calls is excessive ambient noise, but this can be easily overcome.
For example, imagine having ten participants on the line, each of whom is calling from a potentially noisy environment.
You might hear dogs barking, children playing, traffic, computer chimes, keyboard typing sounds, and more.
At the beginning of the conference, tell all participants how to mute and unmute their phones so that these noises
are kept to a minimum. Or the Leader can mute everyone at the same time using a simple keypad command..
Connect with partners, associates, employees, clients, and vendors around the world cost-effectively with a international conference call.
