Really, it isn’t a question of if conference calling is useful to your professional life, but rather of just how useful it can be. And one of the things which could help a lot of businesses in just a matter of seconds is switching to genuinely free conference calls, rather than paying for monthly subscriptions or pricey per-call services.
