Overview - Why use the CallConference service?
CallConference (or teleconferencing) allows people on different telephone lines to talk to each other at the same time. Whether they’re in the next room or half way around the world, you can arrange a meeting without the expenditure of time and money that is usually associated with meetings.
CallConference offer two types of conference call service.
Free access conference call – No account is needed and all participants pay for their own calls, dial 08447 457 457 to try it now.
Advanced access conference call – You can choose your own dedicated call conference number. In addition you can add on security features such as Caller Line Identity (CLI) & PIN number recognition. You can even have your entire call conference recorded for later download. A CallConference account is needed as the account holder pays for all participants.
How does the conference calling service work?
For the public access conference calling service, you call the designated number below and select 2 from the options menu. This will provide you with the necessary PIN which you can distribute to conference members. At the time you have arranged, delegates simply call the same number, select 1 from the options menu to join the call conference, and then enter the PIN you have given them.
Why not use it now? You can call now using the following numbers:
08447 457 457 – For Callers in the UK
+ (44) 870 162 0685 – For Callers outside the UK
This sort of conference call can be used for up to 30 participants, and involves no set-up or account.
The Advanced access call conference service is set up and operated in much the same way, but is not restricted to a single number. You can nominate any telephone number held by CallConferencing – an 0800 free phone number to provide a free meeting for participants, or even an 0871 Rate 10ppm number to generate income.
Callers must enter a PIN, and an additional security measure is available in the form of Calling Line Identity (CLI) to ensure that the conference remains confidential.
Advanced call conferences can be arranged for 30 + participants. The whole call conference can be monitored and controlled via a web-based management system, through which you can disconnect people, or change their status from ‘speaker’ to ‘listener’ and vice versa. A complete, downloadable record of the call conference can also be made available, enabling accurate minutes to be produced.
