As FreeConferenceCall.com Founder and CEO David Erickson has stated, “‘Free’ is the best marketing term in the universe.” As a salesperson, that can present obvious challenges. There’s a faulty perception out there that free (and low cost) platforms can’t possibly equate to enterprise-grade quality.
Today, I’m going to prove otherwise. But I’m not going to do all the talking. Instead, I’ll leave it to industry experts and FreeConferenceCall.com users to tell you in their own words why you actually get more than what you pay for when it comes to our products and services.
What Do the Experts Say?
Actually, the quality of free conferencing services is more than a match for its paid counterparts. In fact, a Wainhouse Research survey shows that 9 out of 10 people claim their experience with a free service is “about the same” or “better” than paid services.
Let’s narrow the focus to FreeConferenceCall.com. Roopam Jain, industry director, enterprise communications & collaboration at Frost & Sullivan stated, “In our use of FreeConferenceCall.com services, we found it to be a robust collaboration tool with high-quality audio and video conferencing that rivals industry competitors.”
How does FreeConferenceCall.com stack up against the competition? Just in 2016, the company won two Gold Stevie® Awards: one for telecommunications and another for its Customer Care team. G2 Crowd, a leading business software review platform, named FreeConferenceCall.com High Performer for Web Conferencing and VoIP — right alongside paid providers — and ranked us with the highest overall satisfaction score based on user ratings. In addition, FreeConferenceCall.com For Business™ was named a Hot Vendor in Audio Conferencing by Aragon Research.
What Do Our Customers Say?
Of course, it’s the end user who is the true expert. FreeConferenceCall.com users occupy multiple verticals, from healthcare to finance to hospitality. We have users in almost every Fortune 500 company. As the most recognized conferencing brand on the planet, we have attracted big name attention.
According to Gene Marks, Forbes contributor, “One of my favorite services that I’ve been using for years is FreeConferenceCall.com. The service does what it says…the landscape is changing for those mid-sized and larger companies who are looking for a better, more affordable alternative to their conferencing services.”
David Pogue, founder of Yahoo Tech offered this advice: "When you work for a big fancy corporation with unlimited resources like Yahoo!, people routinely set up conference calls…. It's great for planning, brainstorming, and having virtual meetings. But actually, anyone can do that. For free. I use FreeConferencecall.com….Everybody in the group calls the number, enters the code, and boom: free conference call! You're welcome."
Per Geoff Kochakian, partner and founder of Phi Services, LLC, “FreeConferenceCall.com allows us to communicate easily with our dispersed teams, our clients, anyone with whom we need to connect and share information. We don’t even think about it anymore, it’s simply another tool we use every day. Windows, Android, iOS, web, we use them all seamlessly. Thank you for such a great, easy communication platform!”
