How Teleconferencing Helped Spread Christmas Cheer

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. But we have a lot to thank the trusty teleconference for, especially around this time of year. […]

Why record conference calls?

There is nothing more frustrating in a conference than trying to furiously scribble down notes faster than the speaker delivers them. Equally as frustrating is trying to decipher someone else’s hieroglyphic-like scrawls post meeting. If you want to avoid having to resort to either of these then this post is for you… A large number of us don’t fully understand the power of using call recording until it is too late. The instant we realise that our note taking skills are abysmal, vital information is missing or something which was said has been misheard entirely are times we wish we could go back and hear all the information again. If […]

Who is Paying for Your Free Conference Calls?

A lot of people’s immediate reaction to being offered something for free is disbelieving skepticism. The assumption is that there must be a catch, a condition, a hidden cost. Sometimes, these sage cynics are right; a lot of conference call services claiming to be free do end up costing you money. Sometimes it’s in sign-up fees, sometimes they charge you for what they term ‘extras’, but which they know are almost always essentials, and sometimes it’s only free if you have a very small number of participants or a very small number of minutes. Wherever the charges are hidden, it’s causing a lot of confusion and mistrust in an industry […]

How Secure is Free Conference Calling?

In this increasingly cynical, avaricious, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction.

This is a question of the quality of service that you can expect, when you aren’t actually […]
