Richmond, UK (PRWEB) January 27, 2005
Powwownow has today announced the launch of the first European conference call facility which will allow European users to join conference calls in the UK for the equivalent price of a UK national rate call. With the new, unique, service from Powwownow, European conference calls can be made with prices starting from as little as six pence per minute.
With the cost of travel ever increasing, and time restraints becoming stricter, conference calling is becoming a vital part of the work process but this can also be expensive, particularly for companies with important European contacts. Powwownow is leading the way in reducing the costs of carrying out these fundamental European business meetings. With budgets being under constant restraint cost savings are a key business concern. Low cost conferencing calling is providing a very real alternative method of professional European communication, without the costs associated with travelling.
ÂInternational dial-ins account for 25 percent of our call minutes and users have previously had to call a UK number, making European conference calling more costly for them,Â said Andrew Pearce, director, Powwownow. ÂOur whole philosophy here is based on making conference calling simple, reliable and cost effective so we have created a system whereby European callers can not only join a UK call, but they only pay a national rate call in order to participate.Â
The service has primarily been launched in France, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Belgium. However, it will also be available in Spain from February 2005 and rolling out through out Europe over 2005. Each country will have a specific dial-in number which will allow them to take advantage of the cheap call rates when arranging and participating in European conference calls.

ÂCarrying out European meetings is becoming more of an everyday task for many businesses,Â continues Pearce. ÂFor some businesses this is an essential, yet costly part of their work and we just want to be able to provide them with a dependable solution that wonÂt cost the earth.Â
