A good teleconferencing system is at your beck and call 24/7. Always ready and waiting.
Much like a loyal pooch, your WHYPAY? telephone conference room is at your service with the click of your fingers (or a few taps of your smartphone). It asks for nothing in return for the service (it’s free to set up and use), and it’s always ready and waiting for you to dial-in with colleagues or friends on-demand.
Once you’ve created a WHYPAY? conference room it’s permanently yours. All you need to start a conference is…
If you don’t already have one, it’s probably time for you to create a charity website. Over recent years, we’ve been hearing time and time again how organisations need to embrace technology to stay in the game. It’s really difficult to really flourish in any industry without making use of the digital resources available. At the end of the day, it means that you’re able to reach much fewer potential customers than your competitors, making it easy for them to edge you out. Even the people who do find ways of interacting with your organisation will find it much less convenient and easy to do so. When we’re all used to being able to browse a website at leisure, even make purchases with one click, having to pick up the phone can feel positively arduous.
For any organisation to run smoothly and successfully, collaboration is crucial. And the key to collaboration is communication. If you’re working for a charity or non-profit, you know how important teamwork is to getting anything done, and if some people aren’t sure of what’s going on, or what’s expected of them, chaos tends to ensue. Without maintaining open and easy communication, you’re in for a stressful, frustrating and unproductive ride. But with more and more people embracing flexible and remote work, it’s not always as simple as tapping somebody on the shoulder or having an impromptu meeting. That’s why conference calls for charities are an invaluable tool which the sector should ensure is part of their day-to-day running.
Good communication is at the core of every successful project, be it in or out of the business world. But when pulling together all the elements that go into getting a new business off the ground, making sure your team can stay in touch is paramount. At the same time, as a budding business you probably don’t have a big budget to be dedicating to bespoke or hi-tech communication tools. At WHYPAY? we firmly believe that nobody should be having to fork over cash for clear communication. That’s why we provide genuinely free conference calls, why we put together a collection of wonderful ‘Freemium’ services, and why we’ve collated this list of some of the best startup communication tools that won’t cost you a fortune!
Group phone calls are an incredibly powerful and wonderfully simple tool. In fact, it’s partly this simplicity which makes them so flexible! And considering the importance of collaboration for success, it’s not surprising that a communication tool which brings more people into the conversation should be so popular in all different kinds of fields. In fact, the amount of uses for group phone calls is almost overwhelming – after all, how often do we find ourselves wanting to talk to more than one person at a time, in all areas of our lives?
For anyone who does a fair bit of remote working as part of a flexible working routine, or because they travel a fair bit, the value of free meeting locations will be immediately apparent. And people who fit into that category is ever growing: with working life being revolutionised, particularly thanks to remote working becoming an increasingly realistic option, you might not have such a fixed idea of where your ‘place of work’ is these days.
But although you get tonnes done from the comfort of your sofa, there might also be times when you need to cast a slightly more professional aura. That’s why having a list of meeting locations is always a good idea.
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.
We’ve all heard the mythical stories about companies which have gone beyond strewing around a few bean bags to becoming ginormous, open-plan professional spaces with free food around the clock, puppy pens, gyms and beds for employees to nap in whenever they get sleepy. But of course, these things are not right, or even possible, for a lot of work places. So what is it that can make you a great employer in a slightly more conventional work place?
Could working from home be a given in years to come? The rate of technological development in the previous few years feels head-spinningly unprecedented, and is expected to continue in leaps and bounds. While for a lot of us, the advent of driverless cars (here appropriately showcased using another significant area of development: Virtual Reality, with a 360 degree video) take us back to giddy childhood dreams, there are some much more immediate and practical benefits remoulding the way we live – and specifically, the way we work.
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.
