June 25th, 2015

Audio conferencing is typically seen as a luxury that only large companies are able to afford. This is generally because there is a perception that audio conferencing requires a lot of expensive equipment along with recurring subscription fees. That is hardly the case, however. Even small companies are able to use conferencing to their advantage. In addition to using conferencing to host large internal conferences, small companies can also use conferencing to great effect for hosting update calls for their investors. This is actually a great way to keep the people who have invested in your company informed about the direction in which your company is going and how your business is doing.

R-HUB’s TurboMeeting provides HD audio conferencing whenever you host a meeting. If you want audio conferencing independent of web/video conferencing, you can get just what you need with the TM paid for audio conference subscription, too. Additionally, small companies can also use unassisted conferencing services to have meetings within their own company. This makes it possible for businesses to conduct efficient meetings without everyone needing to leave their desks and drop what they are doing.

Conducting More Efficient Employee Training with HD Audio Conferencing

Another great feature is the ability to record these meetings so that anyone who may have missed the meetings can listen to them at a later date. This also gives your business the opportunity to record new employee trainings so that they can be played again and again on an as-needed basis. With this feature, your new hires can do their training from any location, which makes hiring remote workers even easier. You can also ensure that your training maintains a consistent quality with everyone receiving the same information. In fact, you may find that this is a great way to grow your business if it is sales-based, because it allows you to expand your reach across multiple states or even multiple countries. This can be incredibly beneficial in today’s highly competitive world of business, as the global marketplace continues to expand at a rapid pace.

Keeping Informed Across Multiple Geographic Locations

The ability to conduct meetings via audio conferencing also makes it possible for people to stay informed even if they are not actually in the office. If you have staff who travel, you can use audio conferencing to make certain that everyone stays up-to-date. Since all you need is to dial in a number to join the conference, your employees are able to join from wherever they may be. This means that for construction companies, your employees never need to leave the job site in order to attend important meetings.

Companies today need every advantage possible in order to remain competitive. HD video conferencing provides companies of all sizes with the tools they need.

build_trust

While the telecom industry is continually evolving, all signs now point to hosted VoIP being the wave of the future. In addition to the POTS network going offline soon, there are also many other key advantages that hosted VoIP offers over traditional PBX phone systems. Below are the five biggest advantages to using hosted VoIP:

Cost
Hosted VoIP offers a much lower upfront cost compared to a traditional PBX system. This is largely due to the fact that VoIP does not require expensive cards for each feature and group of phone lines. In fact, the only upfront costs associated with VoIP is related to the actual phones that your business will use. Typically, this will save you thousands of dollars; funds that you can reinvest in your organization.

Scalability
With hosted VoIP, you can take advantage of extreme scalability. VoIP grows very easily with your organization. When you need to expand and procure additional phone lines, all you need to do is purchase another phone and add a line to your bill. There is no need to worry about whether your PBX cards are able to handle another line or if you will be required to purchase another expensive card in order to handle it. This helps you to save money and time while growing at the speed that is best for you.

Online Management
Due to the fact that hosted VoIP is an Internet-based product, it can be managed easily through an online portal. This means that you can benefit from the ability to change your voicemail and set up call forwarding when you are not in the office. You can even edit the information that is associated with each of your phone lines. Such an online portal can be accessed securely from any location, meaning it can travel with you.

Direct Inward Dialing (DID)
DID is easily one of the coolest features offered by VoIP. In addition to everyone in your organization being able to be reached through the attendant at an extension, DID also provides each person with a unique number that can be dialed at his or her desk. This highly beneficial feature comes standard with every VoIP system and can prove to be invaluable for sales representatives, while also making the Find Me Follow Me feature work even better.

Unified Messaging
With unified messaging, you can also use the Internet to its full advantage. With this feature, audio files of any new voicemails you receive can be sent to you in an email. If you need to work offsite but still want to be able to check your voicemail from any location, this feature can prove to be incredibly valuable and convenient.

These are just a few of the many benefits you can enjoy with hosted VoIP compared to a traditional PBX-based phone system. If you would like to learn more about how a hosted VoIP system can assist your business, please contact us at 1-866-758-0984 or email us at sales@rhubcom.com

Benefit from HD VOIP Audio Conferencing with RHUB Web Conferencing Servers

December 8th, 2014

An increasing number of businesses are now opting for VOIP audio conferencing. Among the reasons for that is that VOIP audio conferencing is less expensive, better quality than land line calls and provides more host control over the conference. Additionally, VOIP and audio conferencing is more spontaneous than drafting an email and transmitting it to large groups of coworkers. Furthermore, it provides a more virtual setting than deploying the speaker button on the telephone. In numerous ways, the Internet has revolutionized the way in which businesses are able to interact. VOIP Audio conferencing is now paving the way for the future of communications.

With sales now reaching almost $15 million and a growth rate of more than 45% in 2014, Voice-over Internet Protocol, or simply VoIP has truly become a strong contender in Internet communications.

How It Works

The way in which the Internet and a telephone are able to function simultaneously can seem quite astounding, but there is actually nothing complex about the concept behind it. Computers are utilized for recording sounds, including the sound of the human voice. Small bits of sounds are then saved in the CPU at extremely high rates. These small portions of sound are known as samples, which are then saved by the computer to form a copy of the original sound.

VoIP utilizes the same principle as a computer recording sounds. The exception is that the small bits of sounds, or samples, are not saved in a local computer. Instead, they are played in another computer once they have traveled through the Internet Protocol, or IP, network.

RHUB Web Conferencing servers are able to provide HD VoIP audio conferencing in which every attendee in a meeting is able to make use of computer microphones and speakers for conducting audio conferencing with HD voice quality. In order to avoid the potential for echo, it is advised that a decent headset be used. More than 200 attendees can be supported in a single session.
