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.
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.
The National Association of Medical Device Training, or NAMDET, is an organisation which carries out the invaluable work of ensuring that healthcare professionals are fully trained to use all kinds of specialist equipment in their work to look after people’s health. In this capacity, the organisation is crucial to ensuring the safety and care of patients across the country and spanning different medical fields. Because of the sheer spread of their reach, the large and varied membership (from medical engineers to risk and governance managers and nursing staff to operating department practitioners), as well as the instructive nature of their work, there’s no doubt that to the people at NAMDET, good communication is key.
There is a very high chance that conference calling has become a part of your everyday professional life. This isn’t some sort of sweeping generalisation or narrow-minded view in which everybody works in a 9 to 5 office job.
In fact, teleconferencing has thrived across almost innumerable fields, proving itself useful to tutors and teachers – it was even the starting point of the phenomenon of Dr. Tyler DeWitt’s YouTube channel and the educational revolution to which it is contributing.
There is nothing more frustrating in a conference than trying to furiously scribble down notes faster than the speaker delivers them. Equally as frustrating is trying to decipher someone else’s hieroglyphic-like scrawls post meeting. If you want to avoid having to resort to either of these then this post is for you.
A large number of us don’t fully understand the power of using call recording until it is too late. The instant we realise that our note taking skills are abysmal, vital information is missing or something which was said has been misheard entirely are times we wish we could go back and hear all the information again.
Cloud contact centres allow you to save time and money on finding the people and technology required for a call centre. Instead, your contact centre is cloud-based, meaning that people from anywhere in the world can be answering your calls at any given time, without them having to be in your office. Instead of building up your own contact centre, you can focus on your core business.
As summer reaches the northern hemisphere, the numbers of people jetting off are steadily increasing. While we have had uncharacteristically warm weather recently in Britain as the thermometer reached its highest point in forty years, many of us seek even sunnier pastures, or simply want the excitement of travelling somewhere new.
But though being in a brand new place can be truly exhilarating, it doesn’t come without some challenges. For many, it is the distance itself, the very thing a traveller is seeking, which can be difficult.
Conference call services are fundamental telecommunications tools in the realm of business. Whether your company be huge and multi-national or a smaller business, the use of conference calling to contact clients or business partners eliminates hassle and enables you to carry out business procedures without the trouble of having to meet face to face. Below are just a small sample of the benefits conference calls could bring to your business:
Very often, people hear the word ‘free’ and become immediately wary. There is, of course, the knee-jerk reaction that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. In this increasingly cynical, avaricious, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction. Still, having even given WHPAY?’s website or blog a cursory glance, you would, by now, know that although we can make no promises about lunch, there is such a thing as a genuinely free conference call.
