London Calling

If one hackneyed (sorry) punk rock reference wasn’t enough, this week we’re Going Underground. WHYPAY? is making a name for itself in the Old Smoke, helping all you notoriously busy Londoners to save some Mony Mony.

If you happen to be amongst the 1.37 billion people who are estimated to use the London underground, don’t ride the Train in Vain, keep your eyes peeled for our big red posters posing the same question upon which WHYPAY? was founded: why pay for telephone conference calls? When we offer the very same thing without asking you to spend a penny, there really is no sense in forking over your hard-earned money to ours competitors. It’s time to say Bye Bye Bad Man (and woman) and let them know you Won’t Get Fooled Again.

A brief history of 03 numbers

03 numbers are rooted in a truly positive and benevolent philosophy. They emerged in 2007, introduced by Ofcom, the industry regulator, to enable companies to lower the charges customers faced when trying to get in touch with them. 03 numbers allow private and public businesses and organisations to bear the brunt of the expense. Instead of being charged at a local rate like non-geographic 0845 numbers, or at the national rate like numbers beginning 0870, 03 numbers are charged at the same rate as a standard landline number would be – that is, any 01 or 02 number.

02 access charge soon to be 45 pence per minute

On the 1st of July Ofcom introduced a highly significant change to the way we get charged for making certain telephone calls.

All calls to service numbers (that’s any number beginning with 084, 087, 09 or 118) are now charged differently: There’s an access charge (set by the network provider) and a service charge (set by the company you’re calling). More on service charges

Get up to date: changes to call charges that affect all of us

Today marks a significant change in the way you’re billed for calling numbers that begin with 084, 087, 09 or 118. These numbers, known as ‘service numbers’ are used by companies to offer services of all types. Some conference call providers for example, use an 08 dial in number (although we don’t do that because we want you to be able to make conference calls for free!). If you’re not up to date, read on to find out how the changes to call charges will affect you and your phone bill.

Conference calling for prayer groups

The teleconference is a communication tool with immense power and a huge well of potential which has often, unfortunately, gone to waste. The problem is that many people perceive conference calling purely as a business tool, when in reality it has so much more to offer with a great deal of uses outside the office. From teachers, to sportspeople, to governments, or even prayer groups, conference calls are a unifying environment allowing a group of people with a common goal to collaborate and communicate. The world is constantly getting busier, quicker, and finding time can be really tricky, even for those with the strongest faith. That’s why prayer groups held over the phone can be such a great way to keep your religious community together, not to mention helping reduce damage to our planet.

Which is the best conference calling service?

Choosing the right tools for your business requires a great deal of consideration and research, but we often just don’t have time to shop around and find the best business tools out there. In most cases, a business will try a service and if it works, they’ll keep it. If it causes hassle and problems, they’ll try something else. And the same might apply to conference calls. Do you find yourself using conference calls? If you don’t you probably should be conference calling more.

WHYPAY?: the easiest, quickest, cheapest conference calling service?

Conference calling is a quick and simple business tool that makes professional life much more convenient and enhances communication between colleagues, clients and employers. But there are so many different conference call bridges to choose from, and they are by no means equal. In fact, some are sneaky, tucking hidden costs behind every corner or being overly complex to use. WHYPAY? on the other hand, is a whole different story, and is arguably the best call conferencing service on offer.
