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.
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.
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.
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.
Over four million people in the U.K. are estimated to work solely from home. This increase is due to the way we work evolving, meaning going into an office every day isn’t necessarily beneficial for every job role.
Though it may appear that it’s mainly the employees who are better off for working remotely, employers also benefit massively as they require less office space and can therefore cut costs of rent significantly. Advancing technology means it is extremely easy for workers to contact the office from wherever they may be, thus driving the rising number of people working from home.
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.
These days, it is easier than ever to get work done far from an uncomfortable office chair, labelled stapler or communal kitchen. Thanks to new technologies like Virtual Reality, as well as less recent developments like the humble telephone, we can stay in touch and on the ball pretty much around the clock, from anywhere in the world.
And yet, a lot of people continue to face the daily slog into work every single weekday morning. In fact, according to the Office of National Statistics, the amount of people who commute into an office every day comprises a huge majority of the country’s professionals, with the figure coming in at around 86%.
Cloud contact centres allow you to save time and money on finding the people and technology required for a call centre. Instead, your contact centre is cloud-based, meaning that people from anywhere in the world can be answering your calls at any given time, without them having to be in your office. Instead of building up your own contact centre, you can focus on your core business.
Telemarketing can be an extremely efficient way to increase sales, but it is a method that comes with a whole host of its own, specific challenges. Unlike with things like print ads, generally emails, and even text messages, timing is absolutely crucial. With other techniques, people can come to your content as and when they are looking for it: when they open a newspaper, switch on the TV or the radio, scroll through their Twitter feeds, or check their phones. But when you’re placing a phone call, you have to have some level of confidence that there will be somebody at the other end of the line with the ability, willingness, and time to answer the phone and have a conversation at that moment. Telemarketing also comes with its own laws, and businesses who choose to ignore or flout these regulations put themselves at risk of incurring fines of £500,000 from Ofcom and the Information Commissioner’s Office, telemarketing’s regulating bodies. Make sure you know the telemarketing rules, and avoid fines.
