One-time Conference Call Service

Looking to have a one-time conference call?  We can help you.

Your best bet is to sign up to for our Instant Activation conference service that will provide you a toll-free conference access number and passcodes in the next 2 minutes.

Here are the advantages:

1)  You’re only charged 4.9 cents per minute, per person.  There are no set-up fees and no contracts, so you can use the service once and not worry about any future costs.

2)  The toll-free number will work for any of your conference guests in the U.S. and Canada.  You can accommodate up to 100 guests.

3)  Once you fill out your order form, your information will be emailed to you instantly, so you don’t have to wait for your order to be processed.

How does it work?

Once you receive your access number and passcodes, just alert your conference guests of the time you want everyone to call in.  (Your conference bridge is open and ready to go as soon as you receive your email.  You can use it anytime.  You don’t have to let us know when you want to use it.)

Everyone, including you, call the toll-free number at the time you assign to start your conference.  Then everyone will be prompted to key in their passcode.  You will enter your 7-digit host passcode followed by the # sign.  And your guests will enter in their 7-digit guest passcode followed by the # sign.  Your conference will begin and you can talk as long as you want.

We will keep track of your time and charge your credit card accordingly after your conference is over.

That’s it!  You will never hear from us again.  However, if by chance, you want to have another conference call in the future, you are welcomed to use the service whenever you want.  You can use the same passcodes over and over again.  So, it’s always a good idea to save your call-in number and passcodes in case you need to use them again.

Your request is not unusual

And don’t worry, your request is not at all unusual.  Thousands of businesses and individuals who have never hosted a conference call before find themselves in situations that necessitate getting several people on the phone at once.  They only need to use the conference service once and probably won’t need to do it again.  That’s why we’re here — to make sure you can communicate and discuss important topics quickly and conveniently, without committing yourself to long term contracts or agreements.

If you want to order over the phone, you can give us a call at 877-254-2424 and we’ll be happy to help you get started.

High Quality Phone Conference Services at the Lowest Rates

High quality phone conferencing services are readily available and easy to obtain.  In fact, you can get a conference account set up in minutes at no cost.  You can review each of the various conferencing plans and options at the top or side of this webpage.

Here are some of things you should know or consider while you are narrowing down your phone conference bridge options:

1)  In 90% of the situations, it’s MUCH less expensive to outsource your conferencing services versus owning and maintaining your own in-house conference bridge and hardware.

2)  There are variety of plans and programs designed to meet your individual needs.  It doesn’t hurt to discuss the pros and cons of each with a professional.  That’s why we’re here.

3)  Free conference services exist, but in the end, you get what you pay for.  Long distance carriers have been known to block calls entering free conference bridges.  In fact, T-Mobile is now charging users a penny a minute to access free conference lines.

4)  Audio phone conferencing is here to stay.  Why?  Because as cool as video conferencing is, the majority of people are self-conscious about what they look like on camera.  Some people even hate looking at themselves.  Verbal conversation will never be replaced when it comes to business and organizational interaction and that’s why the phone will be around for a long time.  While more people text today than talk on the phone, texting is not a practical way to conduct business conversations or transactions.

5)  For video and web conferencing, the old video conference room is out and the smaller less expensive webcams are in.  Now you can do everything from your desktop, or even a smartphone.

6)  It’s true.  Phone conferencing slashes travel and meetings expenses dramatically.  The reason phone conference call services are booming is because it is the least expensive way to conduct business from a variety of locations.  Face to face meetings are always good, but unfortunately, they eat up time which businesspeople and non-profit professionals can’t afford.   If you can get 5 people on an audio conference call by just picking up the phone, you can accomplish more in 10 minutes than you can killing a morning or afternoon trying to get everyone in the same room at the same time.   And with the advent of smartphones and cell technology and coverage, people can now conference and conduct business from anywhere.  You’ll see hand-held video conferencing technology becoming more widely used in the future.

Your best bet:  Look at the different conference services that are offered, get some good advice, and move forward with your plans.  There are no long term commitments so you can always switch to another plan easily and quickly.

Getting a high quality and reliable conferencing service could be the best move you’ve ever made.  Give us a call at 877-254-2424 and we’ll get you set up quickly on the right path.

Business Teleconference Services: Sales, Projects, Announcements

Usage of our business teleconference services are growing substantially because organizations are adopting teleconferencing to cut down on meeting time and to reduce travel costs, particularly for sales conference calls, collaborative projects, and announcements.

Since it is much less expensive to retain an outsourced service bureau like us, rather than purchase and maintain conference hardware and equipment, teleconferencing has been universally adopted by both large and small firms who can now choose from a variety of excellent plans and programs.

There are plans that fit almost any business teleconferencing need or budget.

1) The most popular form of business conferencing is based on a pay-as-you-go plan.  You only pay for the minutes of conferencing you use, no more or less.  It is referred to as reservation-less conferencing, pay per minute or pay-per-use conferencing.  You can use either a toll-free or non-toll-free number to access your conference bridge.  You can learn more about the pay-as-you-go plan here.

2) There are also fixed and flat-rate teleconferencing services that provide unlimited usage, 24/7.  You can use the service as much as you want, whenever you want, for one rate per month.  The only catch is that everyone dials a long distance number.  However, since cell phones have no long distance charges (domestic) and many businesses have long distance bundled with their local service, it doesn’t cost anymore.  This is great deal for heavy conference users and can cut costs dramatically.  You can learn more about this service here.

3) Teleconferencing also includes new communication tools such as web and video conferencing.  More often than not, web conferencing that enables you to share such things as PowerPoint presentations and “whiteboards,” usually use teleconferencing as an adjunct service.  In other words, collaborators use the Internet to share visual information or even videos, while the audio portion of the conference is conducted over the phone.  You can learn more about video and web conferencing here.

Setting up a teleconferencing account is relatively simply and easy.  Once you get your account established (there is no cost to set up a conference call account) you will receive your call-in number and passcodes via email.  Set up a time you want your teleconference to begin and alert your associates of the time they should call in.  Everyone calls the same number, and you will be prompted to put in your passcode.  (You key in your host code, and your guests put in their guest code.)  Your host passcode is separate because you have the ability to mute everyone on the call to eliminate distracting background noises.  More than one person can call in on the host code.  So as an example, if three people are going to do most of the talking, and fifteen people are on the teleconference, those three people would call in on the host passcode and everyone else could be muted.

Directions on how to conduct a teleconference service call on a do it yourself basis are straightforward and easy and are included in your introductory email.  You won’t need any time to set up or practice.  And generally, you can record the call and playback at no additional cost for certain amount of time.

Getting a teleconference service to help you improve communications and enable you to discuss issues and projects with associates who are in different geographic locations is the quickest and most effective way to collaborate and achieve results.  Whether you use teleconferencing for sales, internal management, teleseminars, educational applications or just talk to family and friends, you’ll find it a convenient and beneficial technology that saves you time and money.

Give us us a call at 877-254-2424, and we’ll do our best to insure you are getting the best value for your particular needs.

Conference Call Service for Law Firms: Depositions, Judge Conferences

Law firms have used conference calls for decades, but more recently, have embraced the technology to include depositions and other legal proceedings that have traditionally been conducted face-to-face.  Judges are also beginning to encourage the use of conferencing to save time and money.

While phone conferencing is by far the most popular way conferencing is practiced for internal and external purposes, video conferencing is gaining traction because costs have dramatically declined.

Phone conferencing for law offices

Law firms use phone (audio) conferencing extensively because it is simple, convenient and fast.  The two most popular formats are:

1) Operator managed conference calls:  Our professional conference operators call out to each of your parties and place them into a conference bridge.  You give us a list of the names and phone numbers ahead of time, and let us know when you want our operators to dial out to each of them.  Usually, you will receive the first call so you are in the conference first.  Then, a call will be placed to the opposing lawyer(s), and then, finally, the judge if one is involved.  Your conference is secured and you can talk as along as you want.  This preferred service is very helpful since all of your parties only have to answer the phone.

2) Toll-free dial-in conference calls:  Simply, we give you a toll-free conference access number and set of two passcodes.  You use the host passcode to enter the conference and your guests use the guest (or conferee) passcodes. P rior to the conference you alert your guests of the time they should call-in, along with the providing them the toll-free access number and the guest passcode. (When you call the toll-free number, you will be prompted to enter your respective passcode, followed by the # sign.)  While you may not have the convenience of having an operator call you, there are several advantages. First, you can use the service anytime 24/7 without reservations.  And second, you can get separate passcodes for each of your partners or associates so everyone has their own personal conference codes which makes it easier to sort expenses.  It also enables you to have simultaneous conference calls at the same time without any conflicts.

Video conferencing for law offices

Years ago, large law firms would spend tens of thousands of dollars installing video equipment and establishing video conference centers within their offices.  Unfortunately, the centers were hardly used and the equipment quickly became obsolete.

With the advent of desktop conferencing, and with video cameras now built into laptops, the cost of conducting a video conference is next to nothing.  Services such as Skype can be used for free to conduct video conferences anywhere at anytime.

However, if security is important and if the video conference involves more than 3 participants, law firms are advised to use the services of a professional conference company.  You can learn more about our video service here.  We provide both per-minute and flat-rate plans depending on your law firm’s needs.

Whether you take advantage of either the phone or video options, there is no cost to set-up your account and we charge your credit card after your calls.  Also, there are no long term contracts or agreements and you can terminate your service at anytime without penalty.

Adopting the latest conference technology for your law firm will help in many ways — cutting costs, saving time, along with improving your negotiating processes.  Give us a call at 877-254-2424 and we can work with you to come up with the conferencing solution that works best for your law firm needs and objectives.  We serve hundreds of law firms across the United States and look forward to adding you to our growing list of satisfied clients.

7 Advantages and Benefits to Outsourcing Conference Call Services

There are several important advantages and benefits in outsourcing conference call services:

1)  Outsourcing enables you to concentrate on your core business mission and profit centers.  If you’re selling widgets, you don’t want to take time and attention away from doing what you do best.

2)  Setting up an internal conference bridge is more involved and expensive than you think.  Along with the installation of additional phone lines, there are contracts, maintenance, repairs and other overheard costs.  In other words, the “set-up” costs can be huge.  Conversely, tapping into our existing conference bridges requires no set-up costs and can be done in a few minutes. 

3)  Another issue with inhouse conferencing involves manpower and staff time.  Depending on the size of your installation, the time and attention it takes your IT department to plan for and upkeep your conference bridge can be substantial compared to outsourcing the service.  We already have trained and experienced technicians and experts on out staff who can do the same thing, not to mention professional customer service representatives (yes, live American agents who are readily available and answer the phone!)

4)  In today’s business world, companies need to be flexible and agile when it comes to locating facilities.  If an internal conference bridge was to be located, it would only make sense if there was a long term commitment to a particular location which may not be compatible with your company’s interests or goals.  On the other hand, when you outsource, there are no long term contracts and you can start and stop the services at any time, providing you the highest degree of flexibility.

5)  The conference call business is one of the most competitive in the world and rates have been dramatically reduced over the past 10 years.  From a dollar and cents point of view, the reasons for outsourcing your conference call services are becoming stronger every day.

6)  Companies and organizations that shift their cultures away from physical meetings and travel, and  toward outsourced audio and video conferencing, will be able to greatly cut costs and expenses.

7)  We offer on-demand conference services, which that you can have your conferences whenever you want, 24/7, without the need for reservations or advance notice.  Our massive bridges are open to you whenever you need them.

Overall, outsourcing your conference call service to us makes both economic and practical sense.  We stand ready to assist you in providing the conference service you need at a price that will not only save you considerable financial and staff resources, but will allow you to implement a conference call program that can be put in place within hours and day rather than months.
