If an employee is scheduling a conference call, the HelpDesk can reserve a conference phone to be delivered to a meeting room if one is not already provided in the room. Conference phones allow a group to hear and participate in a phone call. Our voice over IP (VOIP) phone system allows for three-way calling on campus so small conference calls can be hosted at a desk. Skype for Business also allows for online conference calling.
If an employee needs to host a conference call with particpants from outside the college, call the HelpDesk to reserve the phone bridge, which will provide a phone number to be shared with participants in other locations. You will need to know the date and time for the call when you make the phone bridge request.
