Non-profits and associations can benefit greatly by using conference call services designed to improve productivity and cut expenses.
NOTE: Our most popular service for non-profits is our pay-as-you-go conference service because there is no set up fee, no monthly minimum, no reservations — it’s available 24/7 — and you pay after your call, not before.
A close second is our local access conference service that provides a local dial-in number in dozens of major cities across the U.S. and Canada. Now your conference participants don’t have to dial long distance to get into your conference.
Over the years we’ve been able to save non-profits a considerable amount of money because they generally don’t scrutinize or review their conference call expenses closely and seldom shop around for better rates. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” is a usual refrain. However, many non-profits have been using brand name services for years, never thinking that telecommunication costs have been cut substantially because of competition and overcapacity. When non-profits look at the current rates offered in the conferencing world, sometimes they are shocked at how much they can save — usually they can cut their conferencing expenses in half, or more.
That’s why it’s always a good practice to review the conference rates you are paying now and look for bids or quotes from other providers. Moreover, there are additional conferencing services available today that didn’t exist several years ago.
There is one more important aspect that needs to be mentioned — the time and efforts of your volunteers. Physical face-to-face meetings can kill a morning, afternoon, or evening for your volunteers. Yes, the mission is important, but they donating services away from their businesses and families. One of simple things you can do to make their lives easier is to have more conference calls that can accomplish the same results in a fraction of the time. Your volunteers will thank you for valuing their time and make their jobs more convenient.
Overall, conference call services are a key component in managing a successful non-profit organization or association. Big or small, conferencing can achieve results with your board, volunteers, sponsors, supporters or clients.
