On Demand, Reservationless Conference Calling Brings People Together
Work together from anywhere
We use conference calls for client meetings, sales presentations, team collaboration, training, communication to employees who work in different locations and much more. Conference calling is a means of cutting travel costs and allowing workers to be more productive by not having to be together in one location for meetings. Why hire yet another company to only provide conference bridges? A modern business phone system already has these capabilities built-in.
Your conferencing needs likely vary day to day, situation by situation. You may need an on demand conferencing capability at certain times, and an ad-hoc conferencing ability another. Our approach to communications is simple: we keep our customers connected. Our platform and features are flexible, scalable and easily accessible from your deskphone, softphone or mobile device. Whether you’re in the office or on the go, ShoreTel Sky gives you the mobility you need to maximize your efficiency and productivity.

Ad-Hoc Conferencing: The Fastest Way to Conference
Sometimes a meeting needs to happen NOW. Ad-Hoc conferencing gives users the ultimate flexibility to conduct a conference instantly, “on-the-fly.” Instead of being arranged ahead of time, ad-hoc conferencing enables callers to be manually added to a conference call during an existing call. For example, when a user is connected to more than one caller on separate lines, he/she can join those separate calls into a single conference call. Users can then add additional members quickly as needed. The moderator has full control over the call with the ability to add, delete or mute participants. A total of six callers can be on an ad-hoc conference call at one time. Ad-hoc conferencing is included as part of your ShoreTel Sky service at no additional charge.
ShoreTel Sky Ad-Hoc Conferencing offers:
- No dial-in necessary, just join existing calls or add someone new
- No need to send out an invitation
- Moderator call control, including attendee information, mute and add/drop
- The tools you need to conduct impromptu meetings
