There is a popularly held belief that three is in fact the magic number – if De La Soul says it, it must be true. We’re also pretty sure that, mathematically speaking, if two heads are better than one, three heads are probably better than two. After all, collaboration is an immensely powerful tool, whether in the business world or in any other kind of endeavour: team work does make the dream work. The problem is that for a lot of Giff Gaff users, this is proving a little tricky. Many people are struggling to hold 3 way calls with Giff Gaff, which is why we’ve decided to put together a quick guide to make sure that nobody is barred access to this simply wonderful and wonderfully simple communicative asset.Read more »
It seems like every other week we’re reading another news story about how much funding the NHS is or isn’t receiving, how it’s spending the money it has, how it plans to spend the money it might be given… And of course, the more funding the NHS has to put towards treating patients and improving facilities, the better. That’s why we’re thrilled to be helping to reduce spending on NHS conference calls, so that there’s more to go around for the big stuff.Read more »

It’s a small world, so they say, and it’s getting smaller. As technology develops and spreads, we’re able to connect with more people, more instantaneously and more directly than ever before. This opens up a vast array of opportunities, something which can clearly be seen in the business arena. Thanks to telecommunications, you can have partners, investors, employees and clients all over the country, and even the world, meaning you get to make the most lucrative possible deals and work with the best and brightest in the field. But, of course, you need to make sure that you maintain open and straightforward lines of communication with your whole team and all of your customers or clients. That’s why a simple conference call is such a powerful tool.Read more »
Here at WHYPAY? we calculate how much money our users are save on conference calls 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.

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 »
