Conference calling provides a great way to save business costs. Did you know that over the space of a year traveling for 2 hours to attend a meeting can cost around £5000.00! This total is just for 1 person’s travel. How many people do you have traveling to your conferences? These costs soon add up.
Conference calls are essential part of everyday business activity. It allows businesses to communicate with their clients, internal teams and colleagues from multiple locations.
What are the benefits of conference calling?
The benefits of conference calls are many. As mentioned above travelling costs are greatly reduced when using call based conference service. Not only are costs saved but also time. Time is an ever precious commodity – your time can be better used by cutting out unnecessary travel times.
There’s a double bonus to teleconferencing. Negating the need for your participants to travel to you a conference also saves the planet. Did you know that the average car that travels over 500 miles a week creates an astounding 3 cubic tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
When you look at the statistics of flying then you can increase that to 2.8 metric tons per trip (based on one international return flight from New York to London). We’re all being asked to play a part in keeping our ‘carbon footprint’ down. So conference calling is a superb way to go ‘green’.
Other benefits of conference calling include its ease of use. Many companies make conference calling complicated. It’s really simple to get started via your instantly activated online account and then your telephone keypad becomes your control centre.
The alphanumeric keypad on your conference phone gives you control of volume, mute and participant count numbers. Conference calling is cheap to use and secure. You can even get a choice of numbers and add your own branding such as welcome messages.
