Conference Calling Goes Global

Oct 9, 2007
The spread of globalization has wrought many changes in our lives. It has changed our ways of living. It has allowed us to avail of products and services that we would not have had access to. It has opened our minds to what the rest of the world can offer. At the same time, it has also altered the ways in which we work. Gone are the days when file cabinets and piles of paper dominated our offices. These days, a single computer can serve as the storehouse of all information. Any data that might be urgently required will only be a few mouse clicks away.

In a way, that shows how business has changed today. Convenience and speed have become necessities. Could that be a reason why many organizations are gradually choosing conference calls over the traditional business meetings? To begin with, business meetings usually result in some wastage of time. Even if the meeting starts on time, some amount of time will inevitably be squandered in going to the meeting. That time could easily have been used better. Moreover, a good deal of time goes into preparing the conference room, inviting and assisting the delegates, and generally making certain that the meeting runs like clockwork.

In addition to the waste of time, there are other kinds of wastage in using the traditional business meeting. Often enough, delegates have to be flown in from different places. This is more so these days, when the workforce is scattered across the world. Air fares and accommodation costs can have a negative impact on the company's budget.

Thus, more and more business organizations have begun to turn to conference calling to discuss various important issues. This is especially important when the matter to be discussed is one of crucial importance and which cannot wait for very long. The "con call" as it is popularly referred to, provides an extremely cost-effective way to carry out discussions on a given matter. Moreover, the organization concerned finds that it has to only pay for the conference call service, thus saving on larger costs like travel and hotel bills.

Also, conference calls need not be bounded by the domestic arena. International conference call services are easily available. Thus, one can simultaneously talk to someone from the same office building and someone based in a foreign country. These days, we have access to a variety of conference call service providers. On looking around, we will certainly find some great bargains.
