Sometimes, trying to have a face to face meeting between different members of your team can be a true challenge. Perhaps one member is driving into town, another closing a sale with a client in Los Angeles, another setting up a new office in Houston, while you're at the headquarters in New York City. So how do you get everyone together and talking? Perhaps the best choice is to utilize a conference call service.
Different Locations, Same Meeting
A conference call service is quickly becoming a popular way to bring your colleagues as well as potential clients together to have a conference for a number of reasons. The first, of course, is that it allows people who are in multiple locations to have a real time conversation.
Since everyone would be able to hear each other as if they were in the same room much more can be accomplished then if information was relayed via email or telephone messaging services.
The second reason why using a conference call service could be a great choice for your next meeting is the quality of the sound would simply be unmatched if you were to try and have the same conversation over a speakerphone or even three-way calling.
The reason is the type of technology used in a conference call service. By having each participant call into a central location and having the signal amplified and clarified for the best sound quality. Basically, with a conference call service, each participant sounds like they are the only person on the line.
A third reason for using a conference call service is the overall cost savings presented with each use. In most cases, if you factor in the cost of travel, time lost bringing everyone together, as well as the rising cost of long distance, having everyone call into a central location makes much more sense financially. Add to that the fact that many times the call in number is toll free, the cost savings simply add up.
The bottom line is using a conference call service is often a lot more cost effective, and more efficient than many of the other choices available. If you factor in the difficulty of getting everyone together, figuring out different speakerphones or complicated three way calling, using a conference call service is one of the best options available.
