In late 2019, only 5.3% of employees worked from home. Since the global pandemic, this number has skyrocketed to 42%, leaving firms across various industries in uncharted – and uncertain – territory.
With considerable long-term remote working parameters, businesses are faced with a growing number of potential security risks, workflow interruptions and technology complications, particularly when it comes to communication channels. As this new virtual working environment expands, firms must be able to harness their communication channels to ensure daily operations are not hindered and customer information is not compromised.
Remain Secure with Premium Conference Call Services
In today’s remote work environment, it’s not enough to use a free conference calling service that barely meets your business’ needs. Free conference call services pose a major security risk for companies, as participants cannot be monitored and private information is often stored improperly.
Firms in financial services, technology and other industry sectors have indicated that they do not plan to return to traditional office settings in the near future, which means that conference calling technology needs to be robust and uncompromised. Premium conference calling inquiries for CIA Omnigage increased dramatically since March and we anticipate a continued uptick.
With the right solutions in place, in-person meetings will gradually become a thing of the past as firms realize that not only are virtual meetings just as, if not more efficient, but they empower participants with other capabilities such as immediate access to customer data files.
By using premium conference calling services, businesses can achieve next-level communication with their clients, allowing them to host calls with additional layers of security while ensuring only approved participants can join. Elite conference call services such as CIA Omnigage’s Quarterly Earnings Call service require individual pins to enter, giving firms the peace of mind to continue building relationships confidently under these new and potentially permanent working conditions.
Operator Assisted Conference Call Services at Your Fingertips
Adopting technology and systems to fit the new meeting grounds in a virtual environment can be overwhelming. Free, generic conference call services do not offer live help options when issues arise, and their customer service agents are sometimes impossible to reach.
With Operator Assisted Conference Calling , firms can have their entire call managed by live operators who are highly trained in customer service and managing security and privacy, assisting callers from start to finish. Some firms require virtual meetings with 200+ participants, and our dedicated operator assistants ensure that only invited participants are granted access to calls, 100% audio quality is present, meetings start and end properly without any hold times and that no technological or bandwidth failures occur along the way.
High-quality customer service, professional-grade security and elite audio quality features make premium conference calling in the remote workplace a necessity. CIA Omnigage provides an end-to-end solution to firms seeking ways to adopt stronger client relationships and flourish in the remote workplace with their unmatched conference call solutions.

When choosing a conference calling service Lawyers to have a number of requirements. These include
Privacy and security are critical in the Legal Industry. It is mandatory that a Lawyer have access to a secure conference call company. A Lawyer must be able to control the participants allowed to listen in on a scheduled call and request any additional security measures if needed. Lawyers are required to guarantee that the call participant on a hosted call is the intended audience. The operator hosting the call has specific steps to establish a protocol for a call participant to enter the live call, which also includes a few conference call security options, such as PIN Required Conference Call, Operator Assisted Conference Call with a pre-Approved list, and a Conference Call Portal. When a PIN is required in a conference call the conference type is offering maximum security, data capture for call participation, and the convenience of the automated access. The registration web site is provided and two levels of security are required for call access (i.e. Conference code and PIN). There also might be a situation when you might need to do an Operator Assisted Conference Call with a pre-Approved list. This is a conference that offers maximum security, data capture for call participation, and participants are only required to know a conference ID or name. Clients must also give a client-defined “approved list” so operators know who to add to the call. “Live operators” manage conference access and the security, which allows for immediate communication to the call organizer should a discrepancy regarding call access arise. Lastly, there is the Conference Call Portal, which provides “real-time” participation information and a chat feature for a direct communication channel to the operator.

Dial-out conference call

The operator will have a list of all participants with a name and phone number. The operator will directly call each defined person on the list and add each participant to the scheduled call.

Tips For A Successful Event Conference Call
Have a Plan Prior to the Conference Call
It is especially important to have a plan before a large event conference call. Sending out invites before a call can help everyone stay on the same page and know when to call into the conference. In addition, forwarding an agenda to all users can give everyone a sense of how to be prepared and also a time estimate of how long the call will be. With many registered participants, event calls must be carefully structured to make sure that all callers receive information and can collaborate efficiently.
Mute Your Conference Call Lines
It is very crucial to mute your lines during a large conference call. Most companies can agree that background noise during a conference call can lead to increased stress. As a result, work productivity can drop down heavily. With a live operator, only those chosen to speak will be authorized leading to fewer interruptions.
Hold Questions Until the End of the Conference Call
It is always beneficial to hold Q&A until the end of the event conference call so that you can stick to the planned agenda. During the introduction speech, it is important to state to participants that there will be time for Q&A at the end of the conference call.
