Also known as phone conferencing or teleconferencing, audio conferencing allows multiple people, from any geographic location, to speak with each other on one telephone call.
To conduct an audio conference all you have to do is pick up the phone and dial in, using the telephone number and PIN code that you have been provided. You can dial in from any telephone, mobile or audio conferencing unit at anytime, anywhere in the world. Arkadin’s conferencing services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
No, you never need to pre-book your conference calls. Once your account has been created, simply invite your participants to the meeting and provide your access number, participant PIN code, and the date and time of your call.
Simply call your toll-free or toll access number and enter your moderator or participant PIN code.
The main difference between being a moderator (logging in with a moderator PIN) and being a regular attendee (participant PIN) is the different functions you can access within the conference.
The moderator can 'Lock' an audio conference. This means that other individuals will not be able to join. You can also set an additional pincode for your meetings to add an additional level of security. Please refer to the respective solutions user guide for more details.
Yes, but only if you are the moderator. Please refer to the respective solutions user guide for more details.
By using the solution’s mute feature you will be sure to block out any background noise, static or possible “hold music” that comes from your line. Your phone mute feature may or may not block static or hold music.

We discourage the practice of sharing accounts for a few reasons. Charges may be incorrectly allocated to you when you did not use the service. Also, multiple hosts may schedule separate calls at the same time using the same account details which will cause confusion and wasted time. If other colleagues need conferencing services, we would recommend that they obtain their own account. There is no extra charge for setting up additional users.
Yes, you can call your toll access number or we also provide a list of international toll-free access numbers or geographic numbers that you can call while abroad.
If a participant has forgotten the PIN code or fails to enter one when prompted, he/she will automatically be connected to a customer service operator who will place the participant into the correct conference upon verification.
Depending on your requirements, your Arkadin Account Manager may be able to arrange for on-site training. Please contact your Account Manager or Customer Service at +65 6572 4820 for further details.
