ACT customer service professionals remain available to clients 24x7, and additionally, many ACT services are now accessible online to extend greater conferencing efficiency to clients around the globe.
As part of its new service offering, ACT now enables clients to order reservationless audio conferencing and web collaboration services online. New customers can visit the website and select unlimited monthly or per minute subscription plans that best suit their unique conferencing needs. Additionally, all ACT customers now have the option to pay and manage their bills online.
In addition to ordering services and paying bills online, ACT now enables customers to manage their services online. For example, Conference Director is a web-based tool that works with ACT Elite Audio Conferencing and allows a host to manage attended calls online. With Conference Director, the host can monitor participants as they join the conference, view participant information, change the order of participants during a question and answer session, and chat online with a co-presenter or the operator to manage time-sensitive conference details. This level of real-time information enables clients to make adjustments as needed, maintain control throughout the discussion, and enhance collaboration between speakers and participants.
ACT also offers this level of real-time control for reservationless ReadyConnect® web and audio calls with Web Conference Control.
ACT offers ReadyConnect customers the ability to create and manage their reservationless audio accounts securely online with iPortal. Using iPortal ReadyConnect customers can arrange new accounts and customize features for each call by selecting options such as recording, roll-call, self-mute or presentation mode, or they can launch ReadyConnect Web Meeting to share documents, presentations, web pages and applications online in real-time. ReadyConnect customers can also print a “wallet card” with account details, launch Web Conference Control and print a confirmation for themselves or participants with dial-in information. Finally, an account holder may view a list of his/her in-country and toll-free access telephone numbers. ACT provides access in 78 countries.
“Customer service remains our number one priority,” said Mark Kelly, chief operating officer, ACT Conferencing. “These new and enhanced online services are a direct result of ACT collaborating with customers and delivering the services they have requested to do their jobs more efficiently. Because our conferencing services are purposely designed to be easy to access and use, our new and improved self-service options will make it easier for our customers to collaborate when they need to and however they need to, regardless of time of day or their location.”
Also introduced today is ACT’s Time Zone Conversion Tool. ACT makes it easier to schedule meetings, especially global calls with its Time Zone Conversion Tool. Customers can select the location of each participant to quickly and easily determine when work hours coincide.
