These days, many employees are working remotely. When you have employees working in various locations, you need to find ways for them to communicate effectively. In this instance, in-person meetings are often impractical. This is where you can benefit from a conference bridge. A conference bridge is a great way to stay in touch with fellow employees, regardless of where they are.
What is a Conference Bridge?
A conference bridge is equipment for your Business Phone System that can answer numerous calls simultaneously and bridge them into a single call. Put simply, this allows multiple users to share a digital conference room. Depending on your phone system, a conference system can be something you have in your office or it can simply connect to the internet. When your employees use it though, they will not require special equipment. All they have to do is dial in.
The Value of Conference Calling
Conference calling allows your employees to collaborate and connect from anywhere. Most importantly, all they require is a phone. They will not have to spend money or lose time on travel. Your employees can also rest assured that conference calling is secure because they can restrict access with a PIN.
Conference Calling vs. Video Conferencing
Video conferencing has become popular these days. However, it is not always an ideal solution. For example, you may need to accommodate more people than a video conference can realistically handle. Furthermore, depending on your environment, conference bridges are a great way to protect your employee and client privacy. If you are simply a voice in the digital conference room, your personal privacy is also protected.
