The service gives consumers, businesses, charities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and governments immediate access to conference calling services with a simple user experience. Users can host up to 1,000 callers on an unlimited number of six-hour conference calls.
“Giving people immediate access to free conference calling and collaboration tools is a game-changer for local communities and businesses. We are proud to be supporting the growth of the economies in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa and helping people to meet, connect, and do business,” says David Erickson, Founder and CEO of FreeConferenceCall.com. “We have selected these markets because we believe our services can have the greatest impact on local people and result in more opportunities to expand our presence in Africa.”
According to the company, FreeConferenceCall.com is the fifth largest audio conferencing provider worldwide by volume of minutes. The service connects millions of users globally each day, including 800,000 business customers from nearly all Fortune 500 companies.
“Partnering with the carrier community is the foundation of our business. We are looking to expand our relationships with African carriers, as our revenue sharing model creates new opportunities to monetize local infrastructure and drive profitability,” says Josh Lowenthal, COO at FreeConferenceCall.com. “A partnership with FreeConferenceCall.com requires no capex, no opex, and no receivables risk. As the OTT on the PSTN, we offer a no-lose mechanism for regional fixed and mobile operators to bolster voice traffic using existing infrastructure.”
FreeConferenceCall.com has nearly doubled the number of voice minutes it carries over the last five years with its global expansion that is expected to drive further growth and development. As part of its strategy, it has selected 55 countries to launch services in based on a country-by-country basis, evaluating regulatory environments, available network infrastructure and potential users.
