The modern conference call and intercom – perfect your business!

Who now does not want to live where he wants, and yet not to break away from the work process? This is especially true in the summer. And in order to stay in touch, these lucky ones use the conference call. How to make it so that you do not just stay in touch, but also to ensure that this connection was of high quality?

The “Conference Call” service is designed for conducting telephone conferences via the Internet to any number of participants or groups of participants in any place, at any time, at home and in the office.

For the effective development of the business, the coherent and efficient operation of all the company’s divisions is necessary. Qualitative coordination of actions is provided by planned or emergency meetings, including in the mode of audio conference or video conference.
Through such activities, there is a convenient contact between the various units of the organization, which are at a considerable distance from each other. The organization of a virtual meeting allows you to quickly hold not only the meeting, having collegially solved all the issues, but also remote training of the company’s personnel.

And also to exchange files and short messages.
