Phone Conferences Via Web Conferencing

By Dean Iggo

Holding phone conferences via web conferencing is an emerging field in conference call technology. More people are now able to access the Internet at lightning fast speeds. Faster speeds means incredible amounts of data can be transferred and shared instantly. To take advantage of this many companies are holding their phone conferences in via a web conferencing service.

While in most cases a company chooses to use either phone conferences or web conferencing, a combination of the two is truly important step to increasing the usefulness of conferencing. Why is that? Well for starters with the introduction of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calling services, it is becoming easier to make phone conference calls to either toll or toll free numbers. A VoIP line isn't necessary; many companies are still using a regular telephone.

To complete the voice portion of a teleconference, the normal steps apply, calling a number and inputting a pass code. So far this is pretty standard and is a process that most companies are familiar and very comfortable with. Adding in web conferencing at this point is also very easy and doesn't involve too many more steps. First the computer that will be used during the conference call will need to have the software that is provided by the conference calling service. After downloading the conferencing software, the computer needs to be connected to the Internet if not already.

Most modern computers come Internet ready, and installation can be done without having to have the cable company send over a person to do it. In most cases hooking up to high-speed Internet involves picking up a cable modem, plugging it in and connecting both the computer and cable connections. Follow a few simple onscreen instructions and the computer is now ready for web conferencing. After calling the necessary number on a telephone, now connect using the web conferencing software.

Immediately it is obvious why many companies are switching to phone conferences via web conferencing. The ability to not only have an audio conversation, but to share information over the computer adds another dimension to conferencing services. Many companies are able to share sales data, graphs, pictures and even video during phone conferences via web conferencing.
