Start playing conference call bingo now

By Jesse Harrison

We all know that conference calls can be far from perfect, so we've created a fun bingo game for you to play next time you're on a call. Remember, many of these issues are unnecessary problems and can be minimised by talking to an expert conferencing consultant at Express Virtual Meetings.

 

Here's a quick guide to understanding conferencing:

Host and Guest Codes
The organiser is provided with a unique Host Code and Guest Code by Express.

Host Code: This number should be kept confidential. It is used only by the organiser (account owner) to start a meeting.
Guest Code: This number is sent to the guests who are required to join the conference. Guests will be prompted to enter this code to access the conference.

Holding a conference
Holding a conference is simple and straight forward. It only takes 3 steps:

1. Organise: arrange the meeting and send all details including Dial In Number and Guest Code to the guests.
2. Dial: the host dials in and enters the Host Code followed by the hash key (#). Guests dial in and enter the Guest Code followed by the hash key (#).
3. Start: begin talking!

Choosing which number to use
Knowing which numbers to use for every situation can save you money and time.

           National Toll Free number:

  • Use when you have guests from both metro and regional locations
  • Ease of sending only one number to large number of guests
  • The host pays the carrier costs
  • Charged at a higher conferencing rate

Local Access Numbers: 

  • Use when your guests are all metro based
  • Sydney guests call the Sydney number, Melbourne guests call the Melbourne number etc.
  • Each guest pays the carrier cost at the price of a local call
  • Charged at a lower conferencing rate
