Today we released our new free audio conferencing service which is comprised of an array of local landline numbers for different countries. These can be used in conjunction with any Mikogo desktop sharing session for free conference calling with your online meetings. For Mikogo users who often used the previous audio conferencing numbers during their presentations, these new numbers will be a definite improvement – local landline numbers will make the calls cheaper and for some, even free. The new service also allows users from countries not previously covered by Mikogo’s past voice conferencing service to join in on the fun.
The new Mikogo audio conferencing service provides local landline numbers for over a dozen countries, as opposed to providing “premium call numbers” found in alternative call services. Customers who wish to use the audio conferencing feature can do so by getting the local access numbers directly from our audio conferencing page, or alternatively the numbers can be embedded into the Mikogo Scheduler invitation emails from within the software. Users will then dial their country specific number before being asked to provide the session ID that will connect them into the conference call. From there, a single call can hold up to 25 participants (I mean, if you so choose).
Zero or Local Call Costs
But here is what will sweeten the deal. The numbers available in the audio conferencing service are local to the caller and will not incur “premium” charges. Mikogo itself charges nothing for the numbers and neither will your service provider if you have unlimited local calling. That means no end of the month surprises when you read your phone bill. Just the simplicity of Mikogo voice conferencing with the satisfaction of saving money.
For the moment, we have provided local access numbers for 18 countries and we’re preparing to add another 21 countries to the system by the end of the year. The use of local access numbers is better for you, the Mikogo user, because it will minimize or eliminate your conference call costs and widen the net of countries able to utilize the audio conferencing service.
Keep it local with Mikogo and save your hard earned cash by trying out our new voice service today.
