IT TRENDS THAT AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS
In 2012 Kodak went bankrupt. A company that was once totally revolutionising the world of photography ended up shutting down its operations.
Whether you’re brainstorming a new initiative or discussing the next steps in a project, you need everyone involved in the same room to share ideas, raise concerns and make decisions.
Of course, this isn’t always possible, or practical. Your teams may be in different offices, branches, or even different countries.
When you can’t get people together in a meeting room, you can get them on the same call.
Audio Conferencing is a cloud-based call conferencing solution that lets three or more participants join a call from wherever they are, right away – no special equipment or complicated meeting requests required.
Call in from anywhere
Audio Conferencing enables reliable and effective communication and collaboration across your organisation. You can set up a call with teams or specialists in any location, and all they have to do is dial in.
Because everyone has the ability to make a call, the Audio Conferencing service is very accessible, so you can have a conference with anyone, across time zones and geographies, without having to go anywhere.
By empowering people to call into important meetings from any location, you can ensure that all of the critical participants can accept the meeting request and be a part of the conversation. No more driving to different offices or declining an off-site meeting because you simply don’t have the time to travel. This also drastically cuts down on the expense of travelling to and from meetings, and allows people to share information and ideas and make decisions quickly and effectively.
All you need is a phone
The Audio Conferencing service can be used by anyone who can make a call, which means you can set up calls that include people from outside your organisation. To join the conversation, they can use any phone, over any connectivity line, and simply use the PIN for that particular host. The service does not require you to have special equipment on site, so you can implement it anywhere and make it available to anyone without any installation costs or fuss.
Conference calls are easy to set up and join. The host can call into the bridge at any time to immediately activate a conference using their PIN code. Participants join the conference by calling the bridge number and entering the participant PIN code. The conference ends once the host ends the call, which means you do not have to worry about the calls and billing going beyond the specified meeting time.
The bridge is permanently available, so there is no need to reserve capacity for conferences. People simply dial in and use the service on demand, and you do not have to coordinate with other people’s meetings to have yours.
With Audio Conferencing, you can select a package that enables you to have from 5 to 40 participants on a conference call, from any number of locations. There are no additional usage costs for having more participants, as each participant pays for their own call.
Need more than 10 people ‘in the room’ for a really big brainstorming project, or an important meeting that needs to include more members of the team? Simply log a request and we will increase the number of participants for the conference call, quickly and easily.
A solution that grows with your business
Audio Conferencing is a cloud-based service, which means the infrastructure to run it is hosted and managed by our specialist teams. You don’t need on-site equipment or dedicated staff to support the service, as we also provide 24/7 support.
The nature of conference call conversations are often confidential with a lot of intellectual property, important decisions and personal information being shared.Audio Conferencing works from a completely secure platform, so you can engage, innovate and interact with confidence.
We also have set service level agreements in place to ensure the availability of the service and that every call offers the same high quality and clear lines.
Audio Conferencing is compatible with any telephony platform, and can scale up to meet any level of demand. It’s easy to set up and, once it’s installed, you pay only for the calls you make. As an IS voice client, you’ll be able to monitor usage and costs by accessing detailed reports from a self-service portal.
If you want to take your collaboration tools to the next level, you already have a platform for doing so, as the Audio Conferencing system can be engineered to accommodate video, Web conferencing and other communication applications. This allows for better integration between business-critical applications so that your organisation can operate and innovate at maximum capacity.
