Teleconferencing from Anywhere Just Got Easier

Conference calls offer the convenience of attending meetings from anywhere—your home, your office or on the road through your cell phone. If you have a smartphone, including a Blackberry or Apple iPhone, not only can you attend conference calls, but you can enjoy full-featured teleconferencing through Mobile Assistant from InterCall.
Recently released for the iPhone and available for free download from the iTunes store, InterCall Mobile Assistant lets you manage your conferencing on the go. How does it work?
After you install InterCall's free Mobile Assistant application on your phone, every time you open the app you’ll see a user-friendly, intuitive screen. Join a call—as a participant or a leader—with one touch.
Once your conference information (up to 256 different profiles) is loaded into the phone, you can start or join your call every time with one click. No need to keep track of multiple dial-in numbers and conference codes or worry about booting up your computer to look up the number for that important mobile conference call while you're on the go.
You can edit, add or delete your conference profiles easily at any time. Have a weekly meeting? Keep the information in your phone for easy access. A one-time presentation with a big client, but you know you’ll be on the road during the meeting? Set up a profile and then delete it when you’re done.
We’ve all been there—we had an important teleconference and left the information at our desk, in the hotel room or on our laptop—which, of course, was not with us at the moment.
InterCall Mobile Assistant makes mobile conferencing easy, convenient and as portable as our iPhone or Blackberry.
Have you ever been in the situation where you had to hunt down access codes or call-in numbers for an important teleconference? What happened?
