Why use Toll-free numbers for conference calls?

In all industries, we’ve seen changes and disruptions creeping in slowly over the years. Not sparing the telecommunications industry is the rise of technology supporting long distance calls and the way we hold conference calls.

Not only did the way we conduct conference calls change, the way we worked has also changed dramatically over the years. Working remotely has been the trend and will continue to be in the years to come. In fact, it is estimated that 70% of companies worldwide are promoting flexible working styles and an estimated of 1.3 billion workers are already working remotely across the globe.

An increase in worldwide calling plans has also been noticed – Businesses now rely more on remote telecommunications than ever before. These days, as plenty of businesses rely on IP telephony, the majority of call providers have included domestic and long distance calls as part of their packages.

Getting a toll-free number has its advantages – Participants can join a conference call for free anywhere in the country which makes participants less hesitant to dial in. Calling a toll-free number is also seen as a form of professional courtesy from the host (the one inviting to the conference call) who picks up the bill which can have a positive impact on brand image, or simply increase attendance rates to the conference call.
