When you need to host weekly recurring meetings or organize a last minute meeting, our Reservationless Conferencing efficiently allows you to bring people together to help you meet your business objectives and succeed.
Allow participants to stay on the conference call without your attendance. The conference will end once the last participant disconnects.
Automatically record all of your calls without prompting to start a recording via your telephone keypad and eliminate the ability for anyone within your conference to stop the recording.
CALL MODERATOR DIAL-OUT
Start your conference call by just answering your phone. Our system automatically calls your predefined phone number when a participant joins your meeting.
Prevent your conference calls that have not been disconnected properly from continuing indefinitely by ending your conference once it has reached a set duration and number of participants limit.
CONFERENCE CODE-LEVEL CUSTOM GREETING*
Your company can set up a custom greeting to play after participants enter the conference code.
CONFERENCE ENTRY MODE
Prior to participants joining your call, select one of the following entry mode options:
Record a custom welcome message that is played to all your participants who join your conference using your dedicated toll-free or toll dial-in numbers.
To quickly enter your conference, turn specified prompts off that are played after you enter your conference code or leader PIN.
Directly from your conference, you are able to dial-out to domestic participants and bring them into your call or you can contact the operator to dial out to international participants.
DISCONNECT GRACE PERIOD
Provides a grace period allowing you to rejoin your conference in the event Auto Continuation is disabled and you have disconnected.
Eliminate the need to enter a leader PIN to start your conference. You will be provided with a 10-digit leader conference code to start your conference and your participants are provided with a participant conference code to join your conference.
ENTRY ANNOUNCEMENT LIMIT
Reduce the number of entry tones played when your call has started. Quick Start must be disabled and more than five to ten participants are on music hold.
Decide how your participants are announced when they join or leave the conference call. Choose from the following options: tone, name announce, name and tone, or silence.

Your account can also be enabled with the expiration feature that forces you to change your leader PIN at regular intervals (selected by your organization in terms of days; minimum 30/maximum 365) at midnight from the date your leader PIN was created.
LEADER SMART ENTRY
Store a phone number so when you dial in from that number to start your conference, our system will recognize the number and join you to your conference without inputting your conference code and leader PIN.
LEAVE AND JOIN A CONFERENCE
Your participants have the ability to leave the conference they are attending and join a new conference without hanging up and redialing the same dial-in number.
