The traditional method of starting a conference call works but it takes a long time. Who has time for all those numbers, beeps and prompts? Especially when you’re running late?
At ReadyTalk, we’re focused on delivering the tools for perfect meetings. Perfect meetings should start with one click. Here are four tools that will allow you to start every meeting with one click. The best part? These allow your participants to join with one click too.
- ReadyTalk for Outlook
You can easily start on-demand and scheduled meetings directly from Microsoft Outlook. When you use the plugin to schedule meetings the “Call Me” link is included allowing you and your participants one-click to join a meeting. More on Call Me below. Install now.
- Mobile Apps
The ReadyTalk Conferencing App is the fastest way to connect to a meeting from ANY phone – your desk, a conference room or on the road via your mobile phone. You can store these numbers right in the app making it easy to use the “Call My Phone” feature. Plus, this feature doesn’t use mobile minutes when you call any phone beside your mobile phone. Get it for Android or iOS.
- Quick Launcher
Streamline the process to start, join, and invite participants to online meetings with ReadyTalk Quick Launcher – a desktop tool available when you need it. Download it now.
- Google Calendar
Easily schedule and start on-demand meetings directly from Google Calendar. Your invites include all the details need to join with ONE click. Install it now.
“Call Me” Don’t call us. We’ll call you and we’ll call your participants.
We are making it even easier to host or join a ReadyTalk call with “Call Me” features. When you (the chairperson or meeting host) use any of the tools above, a link to the “Call Me” page is included with the invite. When it’s time for you to start the meeting or for your participants to join, they simply click on the link. They enter their phone number and the conference bridge dials out to them. They’ll also be connected to the web meeting – no dialing, no access code. It’s fast and easy.
A few highlights:
- Enter your conference information once and it will remember your details for future calls whether you are hosting or joining
- Join only the web portion of the conference and not the audio portion if you so choose
- The page is mobile-friendly so you can quickly start the call or join from any device
