Conference calls (sometimes known as a concall) are great for when you need to get people together to discuss something but a face to face meeting is not practical.

How does it work?
Setting up a conference call is quick and easy. We offer two types of conference call services:
The Public Access conference call facility is suitable for up to 50 participants based in the UK. There is no set-up fee and no need for an account – you just 'call and go'.
To organise a conference, you simply call the number below and select 2 from the options menu. This will provide you with the necessary PIN, which you can then share with anyone you want to attend. At the arranged time, attendees simply call the same number, select 1 from the options menu to join the conference call, and then enter the PIN you have given them to gain access.
Why not try it out now? Just call 0871 890 1234 to get started (UK callers only).*
There are no charges to set up the call, attendees simply pay the standard national rate whilst on the call.
The Private Access call conference is a service for clients who want more control over their conference calls. Rather than using the public number, you assign any number in your account to be used for conference calls. For example, this could be an 0800 number so your staff can call in for free. You can even assign multiple numbers, including international numbers, so if you want to include overseas staff and clients, you can.
Private Access callers must enter a PIN to join, and an additional security measure is available in the form of Calling Line Identity (CLI) to ensure that the conference remains confidential.
Private call conferences can be arranged for up to 500 participants and the whole conference can be monitored and controlled via a web-based management system. Through this you can disconnect people, or change their status from ‘speaker’ to ‘listener’ and vice versa. A complete, downloadable recording of the call is also made available, so anyone who missed it can catch up later.
The Call Conference service can be used on its own or along with other services. Some examples of how it is used are:
- Meetings where travel costs / time are not justified.
- Company briefings or announcements.
- Inter-office call conferences.
- Quick call conferences with suppliers or third parties.
