How Conference Calling Helps To Create A Cooler Company

Submitted by Dan Faraldo in Customer Service, Industry News, MeloTel Features

The determination of what is and isn’t “cool” varies depending on who you talk to. But, if you ask the MeloTel team, it’s incredibly cool to own and operate a company that has the ability to provide top-of-the-line products and services and unbeatable customer service while contributing to a cleaner environment. Oh, and let’s not forget making a profit while doing all of that!

With conference calling, your business can accomplish all of the above. As part of MeloTel’s cloud-based Commercial Phone Services, you receive conference calling as an automatic feature. As you’re likely aware, the feature enables you to connect various individuals from different locations all over the planet in one phone call, simulating a board meeting with numerous participants. Now, that’s cool.

Conference calls save time and money.

Naturally, all business owners are in business to generate profits. Part of making money is saving money. And by using conference calls, you save a ton of dough on travel costs. Consider the fact that many of your business partners and affiliates may operate in locations that are in other parts of the country or even the world. Just how much money would you save using conference calls instead of making travel plans to see them in person?

“A primary benefit of conference calling is that it can save time and money,” clarifies Chris Joseph on Chron.com, “Employees who may be scattered throughout the country do not have to be in the same place to exchange information or ideas. This also saves the business in travel expenses, such as air transportation or gas mileage as well as hotel costs and meal expenses.”

Conference calls help you promote your “green” company.

What happens when you’re not driving and flying all over the place? Well, in addition to saving money, you’re also minimizing the amount of pollution caused by the vehicles you would otherwise be using to travel. Using conference calls helps you to better the environment. Promote your company as a “green” business by highlighting its commitment to limiting air pollution.

According to the aptly-named, Elliot Green on WhyPay.net, “by using conference call facilities on a more regular basis companies can contribute to a greener environment by eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions that are inherent to travel.”

Conference calls expand your business globally.

As we’ve highlighted, not travelling to far off places doesn’t mean you can’t conduct business in those places. With conference calling, you have the opportunity to develop and grow business relationships with people all over the world. The feature completely obliterates geography as a hindrance to your company’s success. Conducting conference calls gives your brand a worldwide reach.

“Conferencing calling can be an important tool to businesses looking to expand, especially to overseas markets,” says Joseph, “Instead of having to send a large number of employees and resources to a foreign country, companies may be able to conduct some of the business by conference call, reducing overall costs of operation.”
