Conference call phones reviewed: What to look for when buying

We all know teleconferencing is a great business tool. But for some people, making the most of it can mean investing in a bit of hardware – specifically, a conference call phone. And given the fact that there are so many uses for conference calls outside of business and telecommunications, not everybody in the market for a conference call phone is an expert in these matters. After all, teachers and tutors, musicians, even medical staff and non-profit staff, might not keep up with the latest trends in telecommunication technology. That’s why we’ve put together a little guide on how to choose the right conference call phone for you.

Embracing technology in the charity sector – adapt and flourish

There’s no getting around the fact that we’re living in a digital age. No sector or organisation is excepted, and none can afford to ignore modern developments. Yet sadly, one field where technology stands to make a world of difference is struggling to keep up: there is an unfortunate lack of technology in the charity sector. Non-profit organisations appear to have a difficult time adopting and implementing new technologies, even though they (and the causes they help) could gain so much.

How to make conference calls from a landline phone

These days, we seem to be using our mobiles for almost everything. There’s even been debate in recent years about whether we should replace desk phones in offices with mobile devices. But most of us are still regularly using landlines, whether personally, professionally or both. And in both capacities, we might want to hold conference calls; after all, there are lots of reasons outside of the business world why you might teleconference. Sportspeople have made great use of telecommunications, many teachers and tutors are big fans of phone meetings, and there’s a growing trend towards teleconferencing in medicine, with the NHS particularly benefiting from WHYPAY?’s conference call services. You might soon be able to consult with your GP remotely! Essentially, there are many reasons why you might want to make conference calls from a landline phone. And luckily, it’s a simple process.

Have your cake and meeting

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.

Buzzing about WHYPAY? – BIBBA: A case study

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.

5G networks on their way – but what can we expect?

The country’s leading mobile providers just bid in an auction to secure bandwidth in what will be part of the UK’s new 5G mobile network. But how will the souped-up network be different from the 3G/4G connections we’re all used to relying on? Will we even notice it?

Since late March, Ofcom have been auctioning off new bandwidths to key players in the industry, with Vodaphone, O2, EE, and Three all spending a total of £1.4 billion in order to stay ahead of the game and eventually provide customers with next-generation mobile internet services.
