Summer is often a time for change and new beginnings. For some, it’s a sharper focus on fitness as the hot weather forces us to strip off and allows us to jog around the park without contracting a nasty cold. Often, it’s the time of year when we decide to shed a relationship we have outgrown. And with thousands of people finishing school, college, university and graduate schemes, there’s plenty of professional change happening, too. Even for those who’ve been employed for longer, you might be feeling ready to make a move to guarantee more (or less) sun for the rest of the year – or for countless other reasons.Read more »
Here at WHYPAY? we calculate how much money our users are saving in call charges by comparing the cost of calling our 03 number (usually £0.00) to the costs of calling 7 alternative conference providers in the UK.
We love transparency at WHYPAY? (it’s one of the reasons we’ve partnered with The Wonderful Organisation), and we wanted to clearly show our working when it comes to our estimated savings.
To calculate how much WHYPAY? users save, we take information from the UK’s most popular landline and mobile providers. What we do is work out the average per minute rate for calling an 084/087 number (provided by 7 alternative conference calling services listed below) and multiply it by the number of minutes our conference callers use each month.Read more »
At WHYPAY? we are firm believers in balance. Taking a holistic approach over black-and-white thinking seems to lead to the best results, and a little bit of anything in moderation is good. That’s why we endorse a flexible work schedule which combines remote working with face to face meetings, fuelled with a few morale-boosting eats and treats. From tasty vegan lemon drizzle cake at Tibits to a hearty lunch at Pret a Manger, we don’t shy away from eating while we work. And with the savings you’d make from using WHYPAY? for genuinely free conference calling, you can afford that extra slice of cake and a refilled mug.
Is remote working the right choice?
Before diving into advice on how (and where) to work remotely, it’s worth taking a look over some background information to help you decide whether it’s right for you and your place of work.Read more »
If one hackneyed (sorry) punk rock reference wasn’t enough, this week we’re Going Underground. WHYPAY? is making a name for itself in the Old Smoke, helping all you notoriously busy Londoners to save some Mony Mony.
If you happen to be amongst the 1.37 billion people who are estimated to use the London underground, don’t ride the Train in Vain, keep your eyes peeled for our big red posters posing the same question upon which WHYPAY? was founded: why pay for telephone conference calls? When we offer the very same thing without asking you to spend a penny, there really is no sense in forking over your hard-earned money to ours competitors. It’s time to say Bye Bye Bad Man (and woman) and let them know you Won’t Get Fooled Again.Read more »
BIBBA is the Bee Improvement and Bee Breeders’ Association first founded over half a century ago in 1964, under the title of the Village Bee Breeders’ Association. Few remain among us who are unaware of bees’ importance to the environment, and more specifically, have not heard of the planets’ imperative need to protect its bees. It’s therefore pretty clear that BIBBA’s work is crucial, and anything that can help its members to work and communicate cohesively is really valuable not just for BIBBA, not just for bees, but for the well-being of the world – if we do say so ourselves. After looking at how NAMDET put WHYPAY? to such great use, we talked to Nick Mawby of BIBBA to hear how teleconferencing helped them.Read more »
The National Association of Medical Device Training, or NAMDET, is an organisation which carries out the invaluable work of ensuring that healthcare professionals are fully trained to use all kinds of specialist equipment in their work to look after people’s health. In this capacity, the organisation is crucial to ensuring the safety and care of patients across the country and spanning different medical fields. Because of the sheer spread of their reach, the large and varied membership (from medical engineers to risk and governance managers and nursing staff to operating department practitioners), as well as the instructive nature of their work, there’s no doubt that to the people at NAMDET, good communication is key.Read more »
Open days or open houses can be an extremely effective way of casting some light onto your institution, business, school, university, gallery, or even a literal house you might be trying to sell. But the very premise of an open day – opening your doors to the public – immediately casts a rather narrow perimeter around your possible target audience. It seems to limit the people who could step through your open door to those in the close vicinity, or able to travel to you.Read more »
We have all experienced meetings which drag on far too long. In fact, so much so that 73% of professionals have time to do other work in meetings according to Atlassian, a productivity software company.
So how is it possible to know when it’s time to call it a day and hang up a conference call? Below are just a few of the classic signs that your call has gone on far too long.Read more »
The festive period has drawn to a close, meaning many of us are returning to work, healthy-eating, money-saving and generally re-introducing the moderations and self-control which allows us to function as adults.
For a lot of people, the break was a very welcome one and brought with it much-needed respite from meetings, deadlines and the sometimes dreaded conference call. With all the mistakes which people continue to frequently make when teleconferencing, it’s not a wonder that some of us can hardly help but roll our eyes when we hear of one being scheduled.Read more »
There is a very high chance that conference calling has become a part of your everyday professional life. This isn’t some sort of sweeping generalisation or narrow-minded view in which everybody works in a 9 to 5 office job.
In fact, teleconferencing has thrived across almost innumerable fields, proving itself useful to tutors and teachers – it was even the starting point of the phenomenon of Dr. Tyler DeWitt’s YouTube channel and the educational revolution to which it is contributing.Read more »
