I need to schedule a teleconference ASAP. How does it all work?

No problem. Simply call 1800 733 416 and we can have you set up with pass codes immediately. Then, it’s just a matter of dialling a number and entering the pass code and advising your participants to do the same!

Can I host more than one teleconference at a time?

Absolutely. We can issue you and your organisation with as many as moderator and participant pass codes as you need. There are no additional charges associated with additional pass codes.

How can I organise a conference with international participants?

We have a list of over 50 International Toll Free Numbers – this means your international callers will not be charged to join your call.

 

If the location you require is not on the list, we can do one of two things:

2) We provide them with an alternative number to use.

 

Either way, we will ensure your call goes ahead!

What is the difference between web conferencing and webinars?

Web Conferencing is real-time sharing of content between two or more devices and is meant to replicate face-to-face meetings. Webinars are interactive online seminars held by presenters and attended by audiences. The difference between the two is largely that web conferencing is two-way communication and webinars are one-way communication.

We offer free ad-hoc training to all our billing customers. Just reach out to our support team and they will set you up with an appointment for training.
