Good source of communication/conferences.

Review Source: Capterra

The benefit I would said I have is being able to communicate/have conferences calls at work for meetings and customers when they have issues. So far I have not had any interfering with the conference.

Pros
I like that is a great tool for phone conference. The sofware will provide you with the phone number to dial and the conference number. If you are the host it will also provide that number to insert. Overall the communication is great. There is no limit for the amount of people that can join.

Cons
THe only thing I do not like is that when you are in the conference and you try to conference someone else, it will start a beeping sound which will not go away and you will need to reopen the conference.

Ability to call and screen share with the people in the conference and you can also get instant replays. This is very useful if there will be some trainings and not everyone can attend

Great Until We Had To Switch To Video Calls

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Great until it started to get expensive. We've switched to Zoom.

Pros
Free Conference was a great solution for our company when we were all in the office and had to have different meetings throughout the day. It's a professional line that allows us to have conference number to provide to our clients.

Cons
It's quite expensive if you have several meetings all day. Some carriers have a one cent per minute charge and at the end of the month it can be quite expensive. At least for me since we have multiple meetings all day.

Bridging your conference meetings

We can connect real time to as much as people using the phone or internet.

Pros
It's a free service that provides business solution in bridging many people to join a conference meeting. i like that it will provide you a link so you can connect via your computer, or use the number and pass code to connect using your phone.

Cons
Connection issues have been a challenge sometimes, like quality of voice and some people cannot connect to the conference. You have to be ready for a few minutes before the scheduled meeting for any unexpected technical difficulty.
