How to set up a free conference call

It’s no surprise so many people want to know how to set up a free conference call. Two trends in business life are converging to raise the conference call to its rightful place upon the throne of communications technology. First there’s the decline of the office. More and more, people are opting for more flexible approaches to work. Many are self-employed or free-lance, and can desk-surf or cafe-hop to their hearts’ content.

The free conference call business model: How can it be free?

A lot of people have (very valid) questions about the free conference call business model. It’s not surprising people are curious. Conference calling is part and parcel of daily life – and not just in business. That such a powerful and ubiquitous tool should be free can seem quite remarkable for two reasons.

Firstly, we tend to associate value with cost (pretty logically). How can something that’s simple enough to be free be so useful? Actually, it’s in part the fact that they can be free that makes them so valuable for many demographics. For example, free conference calling allows charities to maintain internal and external communications without eating into their budgets. That means they can do even more good, and foster collaborations with other organisations. At the same time, they aren’t having to use funds that could be put to researching how best to achieve their philanthropic goals, or hiring talented people who can help them do so. Likewise, free NHS conference calls mean telecommunications aren’t using up money that should be put to treating people.

Conference call number: Genuinely free & reliable options

When it comes to conference call numbers, there is lots of variety. We have the good fortune to be flooded with options in most areas of life, and telecommunications is no exception.

Sometimes, it just takes a little nudge to even consider your options if your company has an established call conferencing technique. A lot of people don’t look at alternatives to PowWowNow, for example, because it’s always worked well enough.

Digital transformation in the charity sector – where to start

There’s no denying the great work charities are doing across the globe, for all kinds of worthy causes. There’s also no denying that technology can boost these efforts and their effects massively. Yet there persists a serious need for digital transformation in the charity sector. Sadly, it’s an industry which has generally struggled to keep up with digital developments. When you think of just how much charities – and their beneficiaries – can gain by the third sector investing some time and money into newer technologies, it seems a tragedy not to do so. So if you’re ready to embrace digital transformation in the charity sector, read on!

AI and business communication – what can we expect?

AI stands for Artificial Intelligence, and it’s a slightly tricky topic. What we do know is that AI and business communication have developed a close relationship. And it seems built to last.

What is AI anyway?

But in the public consciousness AI manages to be at once ubiquitous and mysterious. Despite appearing in news stories and general conversation on a daily basis, there remains confusion about what AI actually is.

There are certainly helpful definitions of AI. Some experts even divide it into smaller categories. This has been done according to the technology’s scope, for example, with some classifying AI as either Artificial Narrow Intelligence, Artificial General Intelligence, or Artificial Super Intelligence.

Will voice calls become obsolete?

The past couple of decades have seen more inventions than any age. Speed of development is constantly accelerating, as innovations and ideas build on each other. But this also means we abandon more technology more quickly. As the newest thing is unveiled, it often replaces what came before. Devices and techniques fall to the wayside. With the plethora of communication technology available, will voice calls become obsolete?

Is there cause for concern that voice calls will become obsolete?

Communications technology and fashion – more connected than you think

We all remember the tremendous boom of the Blackberry. In the noughties, it followed flip phones and spy-esque miniature laptops like the LG Vx9900 which fuelled the trend for QWERTY keyboards and helped secure Blackberry’s place as the *it* phone. Celebrities were constantly spotted with them. Even the President of the most powerful country in the world, Barack Obama, publically pledged his allegiance to Blackberry.

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.

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.
