New York City (NYC) conference call services are available with a local 212 call in number. So if you are a business or non-profit located in the Big Apple, this could be an ideal solution to your conferencing needs.
Signing up with a conference call service that provides a 212 call in number located in New York City satisfies a number of potential issues and certainly provides many advantages.
First, if most of your conference participants are calling from the greater New York City area, they can dial a local number to get into the conference call. This avoids any long distance charges they may otherwise incur by using a call in number located in another state. Most of the commercial conference bridges are located in the Mid-West United States.
Secondly, a local NYC number provides a tremendous convenience for your participants because it is easier to remember.
And third, you will be able to save a small fortune if you obtain a flat rate service. For all intents and purposes, you have the best of both worlds — a local New York City call in number AND an unlimited usage billing plan.
Flat rate phone conferencing services offer you unlimited usage, 24/7. Your calls are not timed and you talk as long as you want, anytime you want. This is much different than the traditional conferencing business model that charges you on a per minute basis. So rather than multiplying the number of people times the number of minutes on a conference, with flat rate service you can budget your conferencing costs down to the penny.
So if you are a New York City (NYC) business or organization that is looking to cut travel and meeting costs, and are open to the idea of having more of your meetings over the phone to save time, this could be your answer. You can get a local NYC 212 conference call in number, along with unlimited flat rate service, and you’ve just saved a substantial amount of money. Not only that, but your conference participants (also known as conferees or guests) have the good fortune of avoiding long distance fees, and in effect, dialing a “toll free” number (because it’s local) that saves you from being billed per minute charges. You won’t need an 800 conference call service, because you and your NYC area participants are dialing local anyway.
Of course, if you have people outside of the New York City area who are dialing in, they can dial the 212 number as well. Also, if you want, you can get a toll free service to “ring to” your 212 conference number and provide an 800, 866, or 877 conference dial number to your out of town participants. The advantage: You’ll only pay the per minute costs of the those who use the toll free number, rather than everyone on your conference call. For example, 3 people can call the 800 number and get into the conference, while another 5 people dial 212. You only pay the per minute toll free cost for the 3 people who call the 800 number, which is usually less than 5 cents per minute, per caller.
Remember, even though it’s a 212 conference dial in number, you don’t have to actually dial 212 from New York City to access the conference bridge. You would just dial the normal 7-digit local number.
All in all, being located in the Big Apple and having a local 212 dial in number for conferences is convenient, cost effective and presents a very professional image. It’s something you need to take a look at if you are interested in controlling costs and providing an easier way for your associates and colleagues to communicate and collaborate.
