Audio Conferencing

Learn how you can increase your business' productivity and lower costs by audio conferencing.

Getting an Audio Conferencing Provider

Conducting an audio conference requires a conference bridge. This can cost thousands of dollars, plus more for maintenance, if your company chooses to purchase one. That's a big "if."

A more cost-effective way to audio conference (while keeping your arms and legs) is to outsource the conference call to a conference call provider.

Conference call providers charge in two basic ways:

  • Unlimited Monthly Plan: An unlimited monthly plan charges a fixed rate every month for unlimited reservation-less conference calling. This gives businesses that do a lot of conference calls the best value.

Subscribing to a conference call provider also gives you several advantages:
