Conference Calls Key in Down Economy

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

With the current state of our economy and the looming threat of a recession, businesses are now faced with an even greater need to keep costs low while also remaining productive. When it comes to communications, this problem is easily solved with conference calls.

The conference call can be used for communications as well as training, presentations, meetings and other usages, without the need for all participants to be located in the same room.
With a conference call it is easy to improve business meetings as well as save valuable time and money wasted waiting in airports or traveling. This translates to more time spent working toward business goals.
Also, while the cost for fuel continues to climb, reducing business travel is a must.
Conference calls allow clients, colleagues and customers to meet over the phone or online to efficiently communicate their ideas just as they would in an in-person meeting. As today's business world is more globally dispersed than ever, conference calls also make it easy to connect with professionals located all over the world. With this, businesses can continue to respond to market demands without threatening the company's bottom line.
Eagle Teleconferencing, a part of EagleNet companies, provides facility-based teleconferencing services and specializes in conferencing, IVR and voicemail services with a capacity of over ten (10) billion minutes annually. The company has operations in the U.S., Italy, the U.K., France, Germany, and India.
Earlier this year, the company was presented with Product of the Year Awards from TMC's (News - Alert) Communications Solutions magazine for their Eagle Conferencing- India and EagleTeleconferencing, ConferenceLine offerings.
Eagle made headlines with the announcement that it would offer free conferencing services to victims of synchronized bombings that struck India in late July.
“It clearly demonstrates need for the business community to reach out to our society,” said Kent Charugundla, founder and chief executive officer of the company. “Our free conferencing services will be available to all qualified businesses and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers may stay on conference for as long as they wish to talk with others or utilize the services to coordinate recovery operations. We have global annual capacity of over ten billion minutes and we can accommodate large volume of traffic on our global intelligent bridge network at any time.”
