Customer of the Month: Jim Bennett

As promised, our October featured Customer of the Month is Jim Bennett of Bennett Associates. He has been a loyal customer for two years and uses our FreeConferenceCall.com service anywhere from four to five times per month, with that number increasing all the time he says. Find out how FreeConferenceCall.com has helped Jim and Bennett Associates:

  1. How do you use FreeConferenceCall.com for your business? My business requires a great deal of interviewing clients over the phone. By using FreeConferenceCall.com's services, I am able to make it easy for a client to connect with me (no excuses, it's free and you can connect from anywhere).
  2. How do you use FreeConferenceCall.com outside of business ? I belong to 3 or 4 networking groups where we now use this very reliable service. They are now using the service for their businesses as well. There is no downside. As a matter of fact, I receive a short report as a host which essentially is a record of callers that were on the conference call. I see the phone #'s of those on the call, and for how long they were on.
  3. How has FreeConferenceCall.com helped you succeed? In my line of work where communication is essential and traveling to see people face-to-face is happening less and less, I now have a FREE and reliable tool that takes away the excuse that we cannot connect. Thank you FreeConferenceCall.com for this valuable service.

We would love to feature you on our blog! Read More...

How to Use the *3 Touch Tone Command: Exit the Conference Call

The *(star) 3 touch tone command is a great way to ensure that you're telephone line will be disconnected properly from our system when you have concluded your call and are ready to hang up.

Why is this important? Some phone carriers will continue to keep phone lines connected to the conference call even after you've hung up. This may cause you're phone carrier to tie up your phone line even if you're not using it. It also prevents the Call Detail Report from being released to the host since it cannot be generated until all parties have been disconnected from the conference line. Read More...
