Speak to any working professional and they’ll lament that making a call on a phone is easy, but conferencing is a daunting task. It is an extremely tedious process with connectivity frequently breaking down, voices hardly audible, leave aside the video that is grainy on most occasions. Relax, there’s a new app trending that promises to make conferencing simple and hassle-free. NowConfer is an innovative conferencing solution developed by Singapore-based Comverg Technologies which can be used for audio and video conference calls. It is freely available for Android and iOS users. NowConfer already features among the top 10 conferencing apps in Google Play Store; till date it has seen over 100,000 downloads and close to about 2500 minutes of conference calls are made by users on a daily basis. Basically, NowConfer ensures easy and hassle-free conferencing by solving the issues posed by the current conferencing solutions. Instead of the traditional way of dialing a bridge number with a PIN and pass code, this app dials the organiser first at the scheduled time, followed by a parallel dial to all the participants at the same time to start a conference call. A user can sign up for NowConfer by downloading and installing the app from Android or iOS app stores.
To schedule a call, login to the NowConfer app using your login credentials. Then click on schedule audio conference by clicking the ‘Setup audio conference’ button on the home screen. Choose date and time, then add participants from your phone book to create a conference. NowConfer will dial the organiser at the start of the conference and all participants once the organiser is in the conference.
