Reservationless conference calling: Your best friend, in business & leisure

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…

  • Your dial-in number
  • Your room number
  • Your PIN

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.

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.

Is there any need to change?
