Conference call systems

There are many alternatives when choosing conference call systems and it can be confusing. Traditional systems offer teleconferencing over telephone networks. Newer systems use desktop software for online web conferencing and access via mobile apps over the internet.

Budget Conferencing provides a single conference call system. Guests can choose to connect to a call over any phone or an internet connected device or laptop. If at any time you want to display a file or your screen everyone can switch to their computer or mobile device without losing the call.

Some offer ‘free’ and others charge. ‘Free’ operators make money by displaying ads or using 1800 numbers that still cost you money but on your telephone bill.

At the top end Telstra and Optus offer high quality networks at a cost up to 2-5 times higher than some. Like larger operators you can experience conference calls with 24/7 customer service and high quality audio at a fraction of the cost of the big guys. See a conference call comparison chat below.

You don’t have to compromise on quality since all lines offer guarantee 99.9% up time on the call . How do we do that? Budget Conferencing automates most of our processes to keep costs down and partners with a leading global network provider to provide highest quality audio lines.
