High-Quality, PSTN-based FreeConferenceCall.com Service Delivers Digital Clarity And Collaborative Conferencing without Set-Up Hassles and Costly Bills
Long Beach, CA (April 11, 2006) – Free Conferencing Corporation of America, the leading provider of REE one-to-many collaborative communications solutions, is taking FREE HD audio conferencing to new levels. Used worldwide by more than 200,000 consumers, from small businesses to large enterprise organizations, FreeConferenceCall.com offers a high-quality, reservation-less conferencing service that is extremely easy to use. The service is ideal for companies and organizations, large and small, which need a reliable, hassle-free tool to arrange teleconferences. It also provides reporting functionality including an email summary listing call date, calling number, start time, enabledd time, number of attendees, and total minutes.
“HD Audio conferencing has become a mission-critical tool to conduct business,” said David Erickson, founder and CEO, Free Conferencing Corporation of America. “We are offering organizations the best of both worlds with a FREE, convenient communications tool that eliminates the conferencing fees associated with paid providers, yet delivers high-quality PSTN (public switched telephone network) lines that paid and other free providers cannot match – all with zero commitment and no need for reservations.”
According to Erickson, consumers simply provide an email address and within seconds are given an account with their own unique phone number and access codes. Consumers can use the service to create a virtual conference room where professionals and workgroups can conduct business, exchange ideas and collaborate with colleagues, customers and prospects.
FreeConferenceCall.com’s pioneering all digital network is built on voice routers versus analog-based conference bridges that can be prone to static and other noise. In addition, FreeConferenceCall.com offers the scalability of allowing up to 1,000 callers at a time with the capacity to expand that number to 200 callers for an additional fee.
