Free Conferencing Corporation Unveils New Feature for its Conferencing Service
January 26, 2010
Corporate and government agencies are increasingly opting for conferencing facilities for the various benefits and cost saving features provided y that technology. While the clients have to shell out hefty amounts to get this service initially, there are companies that provide this service free of cost. One such company, FreeConferenceCall.com, has announced a breakout conferencing feature as part of its full-featured conferencing service, FreeConferencing.com.
Free conference calls require only a name and an e-mail address to receive an instant account. The customer will be instantaneously provided with a dial-in number and access code for immediate phone conferencing once they enter their name and e-mail address.
FreeConferencing.com provides the convenience of breakout sessions which eliminates the hassle of creating separate conference lines for sub-groups within a single conference session. By notifying all participants of the date and time for the call and providing them with the conference dial-in number and participant access code, conference organizers must first organize a conference call. The host must then assign topics or discussion sessions for each breakout conferencing room—along with a leader who will guide the call during the breakout sessions.
In a release, David Erickson, CEO of Free Conferencing, said “An increasing number of organizations are looking to be more productive with their conferencing solutions. As an innovator in the conferencing space, FreeConferencing.com saw a need for the unique breakout conferencing feature and jumped on it. Now, customers in every industry can seamlessly use conference calling as a way to talk about specific sub-topics as part of any larger conversation.”
Free breakout conferencing can be used by various types of entities such as direct sellers and multi-level marketers, sub-committee meetings in the political arena, education and training seminars and so on.
In November the company announced additional features to its SimpleBlast voice messaging service, building on the momentum established since the initial launch of the product early this year. SimpleBlast works like a voice broadcasting system—users can record and distribute instant voice messages using a telephone and computer. The service provides quick and personal ways for users to reach their contacts.
