We truly live in amazing times. A lot has changed over the years. At one time, people would have to write each other letters on pieces of paper, fold those pieces of paper, pack them into envelopes and mail them off. Several days or even weeks later – depending on the distance the envelope had to travel – a recipient would open the letter and read what was written.
Sure, people still send each other mail today. But it’s at a rate that is far lower than what it used to be. And that’s because email has completely revolutionized the ways in which people write to each other. As you’re well aware, email messages can be sent back and forth within seconds. These days, communicating with someone clear across the globe is just as easy as speaking to a person sitting next to you!
Remember when seeing someone’s face while they were speaking to you over the phone was a futuristic fantasy you’d see in a science-fiction movie? Today, it’s the norm. Using such technology as Facetime, WhatsApp video calls or Skype, people can speak to each other face-to-face every day regardless of how far apart they are geographically.
This is what makes conference calling such a fascinating, yet necessary part of the business world today. It allows for business to be conducted in ways that were once unheard of. These days, meetings that include a variety of participants from all over the world can easily be held. In one phone call, several individuals can share ideas and have productive interactions that help for businesses to thrive.
One of the biggest benefits of conference calling is that it eliminates the need to travel. This is especially important for businesses that work with clients in other countries. Even short business trips can rack up quite the bill. However, by replacing a business trip with a conference call, thousands of dollars can be saved.
“Usually, conference calls don’t cost you or your company anything,” notes MobileDay.com, “Travel on the other hand can be expensive. Even if we’re taking a 30 minute car journey rather than a flight, travel costs really add up for your business. For you, you might be given expense costs, but there is still the wear and tear on your car if you are zipping from office to office on a regular basis.”
Naturally, when you get a bunch of people on the phone all at once instead of having to travel far distances to meet with them all, you save a ton of time as well as money. This allows workers to actually get to work instead of spending hours and sometimes days on the road.
“Conference calls are the quickest, most efficient way to get people together for a discussion,” writes Elliot Green of Call.Group, “They make you and your organization more efficient…There’s less time wasted travelling to face-to-face meetings. Conference calls are largely independent of location.”
Conference calling is just one of the many features that come with MeloTel’s cloud-hosted Commercial Phone Services. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-888-MELOTEL or use the Live Chat feature on our website!
