Free Audio Conference Call Service from DBS Telecoms saves you time, money and helps the environment

DBS Telecoms now offers a free audio conference call service which allows you to hold meetings over the phone, dramatically reducing your company’s carbon footprint and allowing you to spend more time working rather than travelling to meetings.

DBS Telecoms in Lincolnshire is well known for a variety of different services. They are providers of freephone 0800 numbers, 0845 numbers, and local numbers for 500 different UK towns and cities. They offer fax-to-email and a variety of other extra features on their local and non-geographic numbers, and they offer a call answering service.

Now, they are offering a free audio conference call service. This service is free, with no booking and no billing involved. This new service from DBS Telecoms allows you to hold meetings over the phone for up to 50 people at a time, and all you pay is the cost of the telephone call to the phone conference number. Calls are typically 4.3p + VAT per minute from a landline based on BT’s call tariff rate. Calls made from mobile phones and other operators may vary, but it is still considerably cheaper than travelling to and from a meeting. So, there are no set up costs, no monthly or annual service charges, and DBS do not ask for any payment details, so you will not be prompted to provide debit or credit card details or your bank details. No bills are sent out. All you are asked for when you request a PIN number is your name, your company name, your phone number and your email address, and the free PIN will then be sent to your email address. It is as simple as that.

David Clarke, Director of DBS Telecoms, said: “We are delighted to offer this service for free because of the benefit it will have on the environment, as well as on companies’ time and their budgets. It’s a fantastic green alternative to driving around the country going to numerous meetings. The carbon footprint is absolutely minimal. With fuel the price it is, it makes travelling from one side of the country all the time very expensive and as we all know it isn’t great for the environment. I think all businesses, especially in tough economic times, can appreciate that driving miles for meetings isn’t the best option any more, and that being able to have a group meeting over the phone for free is a much more environmentally friendly and cost effective solution. It also saves time. If you have to travel a long distance to see a client for a meeting, the time to get there, the time for the meeting, and the time to get back often add up to a full day’s work. Even if the phone meeting lasts two hours, you still have the remaining six hours or so of the working day, plus think of all the fuel and stress you have saved”.

The free audio conference call service is available any time someone wants to use it. You don’t have to book a slot in order to use it, as it is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It is, however, only available to UK customers. There is no minimum or maximum use clause – you can use it just to make one phone call, or use it all the time. The only maximum number involved is the amount of callers you can have in the meeting, which is 50.

To use the service, all you have to do is order your PIN number for free from the DBS website. You let people you want at the meeting know the date and time of the meeting, and then give them the phone number 0843 290 6868 to ring. Once they have dialled this number, they will be prompted to enter the PIN number, which you can provide to them when giving them the date and time of the teleconference. The PIN number is uniquely yours and means that the conference call is secure. Hopefully you will all dial the number to be at the meeting at roughly the same time, and as someone new joins the teleconference the people who have already joined the meeting will hear a beep. When you’re ready to end the phone call, you just hang up as usual. It is possible to get a recording of the meeting as well if you want one – just call 0800 046 1688 for more details.
