Three Ways for Managers to Benefit From a Conference Calling Program

March 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 142

There are many ways to communicate these days, and new ways are still being developed all the time. Yet some individuals still do not take advantage of some of the simplest and most useful modes of communication. To be sure, the new smartphones and computers make for a great way to communicate, but it is not always as much about the tool being used as it is the program being used with the tool.Conference calling is a perfect example of such a program, and it is one that is not used nearly as much as it should be, if only people knew the benefits it could provide.

Managers of all types can particularly benefit from using conference calling programs, and these are programs that can be downloaded online at no cost which is an added bonus. Rather than waste time making phone call after phone call, managers can communicate with as many colleagues and associates as they need to with one simple call. Three situations in particular are ideal for the use of a conference calling program.

1. Associate/Employee Meetings - Managers in all industries hold associate or employee meetings on a regular basis as a great way to keep track of the needs of a business. But managers who use conference calling programs likely hold meetings more often, have more people involved, and get more out of the meetings as they can initiate them immediately when the need arises.

Whether you need to plan a meeting to settle a customer complaint or to plan a certain event, conference calling is a great way to get everyone together without having to interrupt schedules too much. Managers even have the option of scheduling after hours meetings so as not to have to interrupt the work day which is an even bigger bonus.

2. Finalizing a Deal - When it comes to managing a company that closes deals on a regular basis, conference calling programs are indispensable. You never know when a deal will start to fall apart and die out as quickly as they surfaced if the deal is not finalized right away. Managers who use conference calling programs worry about this less because they can use the program to get everyone involved on the phone and the deal finalized in no time.

When it comes to using a conference calling program for this purpose it may be beneficial to have a conferencing program that includes video as well. Whichever type of program you decide to use just be sure it is of good quality and does not cost you an arm and a leg.

3. Training - Finally, managers can also use conferencing programs to train new employees or associates outside of the office. There are many situations that may require time that managers simply do not have while in the office. Those individuals can extend training sessions to the individual's home to save time but still provide sufficient training.

Conferencing programs also allow other employees to train new associates from the comfort of their own home. This means freeing up useful labor during work hours without sacrificing training. Conference calls can do many things for many individuals, but for managers they are especially useful.
