Reservationless Conference Calls
In this day and age, there is no reason that a company should settle for anything less then reservationless conference calls from their service provider. With all of the advancements made in conference calling software, service providers that require that all conference calls be reserved in advance should be avoided.
Your company's sales are fueled by your ability to meet the needs of your customer in a quick and efficient manner. Whether you use conference call services to collaborate with other offices or to keep your client updated as to progress you should not have to put things off because you forgot to reserve a time with the conference calling company. Naturally it is to your advantage to pick a time in advance so that your attendees are able to make time in their schedule to attend the meeting, most conference calling companies offer software so that you can schedule times of the Internet for your meetings.
A company though, should always have the option to initiate a meeting within a matter of a few minutes. Things happen, businesses have emergencies and sometimes those emergencies make telephone of calling and leaving a phone message time consuming and unacceptable. Setting up emergency, reservationless conference calls can literally save a company money, time and even ensure that your client sticks around at least a little while longer.
Reservationless conference calls should be included in the basic package with a company. If you are choosing companies that charge a simple flat rate (which of course you should be) then double check the conditions of such a plan. Make sure that not only do they claim to be wireless, but they also need to make sure that it is easy for your company to initiate a conference call "on demand". This is important, as many companies will tell you just about anything to get your business. What many users find is that after they sign up for a contract or even if they just start using the services temporarily that almost none of the extras were included in the base price. Double-check the figures you are given and never accept a quote over the phone. Know exactly what you are looking for and make sure you clearly show your companies desire to have the option to start up a reservationless conference call.
