Microsoft Office 365 comes packed with some powerful tools that increase productivity and the ability to collaborate. When it comes to collaboration, Microsoft has developed Lync which includes a free voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) audio feature that allows you to use the internet to talk to your conference participants. This is a great value but call quality can fluctuate over the public internet. We have heard multiple complaints that the VoIP audio solution is not business quality in a conference call environment. Very large calls and delay due to distance can cause dropped calls, missing voice segments, static, or echo on VoIP audio calls over the public internet. A conference environment multiplies those issues for each participant as latency from one party can create a poor environment for everyone.
To improve the audio conference experience, Microsoft has exclusively partnered with three audio conferencing providers to offer a fully integrated high-end telephone based audio conferencing service. These partnerships are designed to bridge the gap between the low quality free VoIP service and what you would normally expect on a business grade conference call.
These three providers offer packages that require each user to subscribe to a monthly plan of approximately $20 per user, per month.
ARG has a cost effective alternative: ARG has negotiated agreements with the Microsoft exclusive providers to eliminate the monthly subscription plan and put your company in a position to pay for only what you use.
This allows you to avoid monthly packages that come with a bundle of minutes and overage fees, and secure a low per minute rate where your company pays for only what it uses. Let ARG take the large fixed costs out of equation and secure a solution that has no surprises and minimizes your expenses.
What integrated audio conferencing will do for you:
- Dial-in or dial-out for participants on any phone for both internal and external callers
- Access to over 100 local and international dial-in numbers
- Meetings with up to 300 audio participants at once
