PRESS RELEASE -- FreeConferenceCall.com, the most recognized conferencing and collaboration brand on the planet, announced today that it has launched free conference calling in Uganda. Uganda joins Algeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and South Africa on a growing list of countries that can use conference calling services at no cost.
The country has instant and limitless local access to audio services including high-definition audio conferencing, web conferencing and screen sharing, audio and visual recordings, customized greetings, security features, desktop scheduling and mobile applications at any time.
“The service enables consumers, businesses, charities, non-government organizations and governments with immediate access to conference calling that has a simple user experience,” says Bertrand Daumalle, managing director of international operations at FreeConferenceCall.com. “Users of the service can host up to 1,000 callers on an unlimited number of conference calls lasting up to six hours. Our services can work for users all over the world and create new opportunities for them. For example, a small business owner in Uganda can connect with suppliers in the U.S. for free.”
In Uganda, there’s a tax imposed on using over the top (OTT) messaging apps such as Skype, Viber and WhatsApp. With FreeConferenceCall.com, users can communicate completely free of charge. The company’s simple model enables collaboration and provides people with new communications services.
