Many of our customers schedule periodic conference calls with the investment community where a carefully selected panel or presentation team delivers the current performance of a business.

Despite what is advertised, most call providers fail to offer an event call service designed with Financial PR & Investor Relations in mind. There is a neglect for the subtleties of this type of industry, with Financial PR and IR professionals often becoming restricted and frustrated by unreliable, over complicated and expensively inflexible solutions.
Great conference calls should be both simple and cost effective, often replacing face-to-face meetings, they can be used to reduce travel time and organisational costs, as well as lessening your carbon footprint.

Whether you’re a multi-national organisation with teams around the world or a small business with a key client located overseas, being able to join your important conference calls securely from anywhere in the world is crucial. So crucial that your chosen provider requires sufficient coverage internationally or you risk some participants being unable to partake, which is both frustrating and costly to your firm’s productivity.
