If you spend a lot of your life travelling the world, then it can be difficult to keep in touch with those who matter the most to you. Whether it’s family, customers or colleagues, staying in contact can be hard work.

However, if you’re running a business, or even if you’re working abroad, taking advantage of a call conference service could be the key to keeping things moving whilst you’re away.

That urgent account with finance, the weekly check-in with your sales team, or even the review of activity with marketing. These are all meetings that can be had on the go.

Huge range of dedicated conference numbers available

With the option of free, local and international access numbers, you can jump onto a group call wherever you may be. With call charges to the caller ranging from absolutely free to local rate with some providers, you can make sure your business keeps moving no matter how far apart you and your colleagues are.

When you choose a dedicated conference numbers, that number is yours to keep and use exclusively. This means that you and your colleagues can save it into your handset for easy dialling in wherever you are.

With plans designed for both small businesses and larger companies alike, you can always make sure that you avoid nasty roaming charges by offering your employees a local dial-in number to your call conference service.

Numbers are on offer from countries all over the world. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a beach in Barbados or skiing in Switzerland. Staying up-to-date with your colleagues is as easy as dialling in, selecting your room and the conference starts.

You are able to set up multiple rooms on the service, which means that each department can have their own private area. Maybe marketing needs a call at the same time as finance? No problems. You can both use the service at the same time. The minutes used simply come out of your monthly minute allowance, or are charged at the standard service rate.

With super-fast setup and a self-service portal to manage your meetings, it’s never been easier to organise meetings on-the-go. If you want to turn call recording on, it’s only the click of a button before all of your conferences are recorded for easy note-taking later.

No internet connection needed to us the conference call facility

You only need a telephone to get connected. The majority of the conference call services, also known in some sectors as an ‘audio bridge’, rely solely on the ability to make and receive a telephone call. So you won’t need to spend a fortune on data roaming or rely on below par Wi-Fi in your hotel or hostel. If you can make a call, that’s all you need to join the discussion.

Conference calling is particularly popular in both the United States and the United Kingdom, with the most searches for ‘conference call’ out of any other countries. Make sure you’re not rushing to Google in the minutes leading up to your meeting by having a dedicated conference number to hand.

So wave hello to increased productivity when you’re abroad, and stamp out those ‘business-essential’ expensive call and data charges by using a dedicated conference call service the next time you’re travelling.­­­

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
