As an entrepreneur, having reliable and convenient ways to communicate with your colleagues and clients is important. The Internet allows us to be more mobile than ever, giving us a variety of applications that can be used for effective communications. Being able to connect with your employees at a moment’s notice is sometimes crucial. With the use of a smartphone, laptop or tablet, you can easily download and use apps that will enable you to connect with personnel from anywhere, such as the airport, hotel, on the road, at the office or at home.

Auto Social Media Connections with UberConference App

You’ll find the interface for UberConference to be easy to use and likeable. It comes with automatic social media connections, so that you can learn more about those who are connected to the conference. This can speed up the introductions of the callers and the main speaker as well. All you have to do to access this feature is click on the photo next to the caller’s name.

In order to start a conference call, you just send a link to those you’d like to invite. When using the pro version, you can schedule the time of the conference and it will automatically dial the participants for you. All they have to do is answer the phone. If at the end of a conference you want to learn how much each of the callers participated, you can view the post call summary, which will tell you who talked the most and the least.

This app also gives you power over the call, providing you with brightly-colored buttons like “earmuff” to mute out noisy callers and “evict” to boot someone from the call. With the free version of the UberConference app, you are able to have up to 17 people on the call. For $10 per month, you can have up to 100 people on the call. Other features of the paid service include local phone numbers, call recording, custom hold music and scheduling recurring conferences.

Voxeet Offer’s Voice Recognition

One of the conference apps that you can download to your mobile device is called Voxeet. A lot of people like this application because it allows you to identify who is speaking at any given moment. It comes with a 3-D sound speaker recognition feature. You can also see a photo next to the name of all the participants. Everyone is split onto the left and right sides of the screen. When someone speaks from the left, there is a visual cue and you will hear his or her voice in your left ear.

This application also comes with HD sound, which helps to reduce background noise and echo. The voices of all the speakers come in loud and clear. There’s even a whisper feature, which can be used to talk privately with just one of the participants in the conference. You’ll still be able to listen to the conference call as you do so, without having anyone else hear you.

Making team calls are simple with the Voxeet app. All it takes is one click or you can set it up to Always-On, so that you can have quick chats with those in your group throughout the day. Switching from device to device is no-hassle as well. If you own an iPhone or Android device, you can download this app for free. Up to eight participants can be included in your calls at a time.

No More Conference Pins with Speek

Speek is another conference call application that can be used instead of traditional conference calls, which require phone numbers, pins and passwords to join the group. With Speek, all you have to do is create your own unique URL for the participants to click on and that’s it. They will be entered into the call. You can either use your name or the name of your company. The link is then sentto those you’d like to invite to the conference call using email, text or calendar invitation. When the recipient clicks on the URL, he or she will type in their own phone number and will then be connected.

The affordability of Speek is another reason why people like to use this app. It allows you to make free conference calls with up to 5 participants. For the Pro plan, which allows you to have an unlimited number of participants in your conference calls, all you have to pay is $10 per month. Even with this flexibility, it’s recommended that you not exceed 15 people per call. Other features that come with the paid plan include call recording and sharing files. This app can be downloaded on iPhone, Android and Windows devices.

The available apps for conference calling make it easy for even the busiest entrepreneurs to stay connected.
