Website FAQ's


Getting Started



1. How quickly can I be set up with an account for phone and web conferencing?


During business hours (weekdays 8am – 8pm, Eastern time, excluding holidays), within 15 to 30 minutes of faxing us your completed application form. You should call us at 1.888.203.7900 or 1.973.671.0040 if your phone and/or web conference is starting soon and you’re in a hurry.


2. Do I have to use the phone and web conferencing together or can I use them separately?


You can use them together or separately. We charge for them separately, however.


3. Do you require a contract?


We do not require a contract from you and there are no setup fees. Our standard pricing is “per-minute” and with this rate structure we do not impose any monthly minimum charges. We do require an application form with your signature to ensure that you will pay for any usage of the services.


4. Do you offer training for your services?


Yes, we offer extensive training through your dedicated account manager or event coordinator at no charge. Depending upon what services you are planning to use, you may not need training; for example, our Reservationless phone conferencing is very easy to use.


5. Do I call you to schedule a conference?


Not usually. Most of our customers use our on-demand, automated phone and web conferencing for their everyday meetings; no reservation required. Larger conferences and those with special needs are more likely to need our “Operator-Assisted” phone conferencing, which does require a reservation.


6. How many people can join my conference?


Our automated phone and web conferencing accommodates up to 100 attendees by default. Call or email us if you may need to go over 100 with one of these services, please. Operator-assisted phone conferences and webcasts can handle thousands of attendees.


7. What is the difference between Operator-Assisted and Reservationless phone conferencing?


Reservationless phone conferencing does not require advance reservation,it is fully automated, and available 24x7x365. You receive permanent dial-in numbers and entry codes and can use it any time; it’s on-demand. Operator-Assisted phone conferencing is for larger and/or more complex events and requires an advanced reservation. Typically, an operator greets all callers and gathers their contact information, introduces the speakers, monitors the entire conference, moderates live Question & Answers (Q&A) sessions and more.



7 - Day Free Trial



1. How does the free trial work?


The 7-day free trial allows you to utilize our automated phone and web conferencing services at no charge to determine if they will meet your needs.


1. How does Infinite compare to WebEx and LiveMeeting?


Both are excellent products but we stack up very well. Many former WebEx and LiveMeeting customers have told us so. We typically surpass the competition in support and flexibility.



Phone Conferencing


Reservationless Phone Conferencing



1. How will I be able to know who attended the call?


During the conference call you can perform a roll call by dialing “#1”. Assuming you have name recording turn on (this is turned on by default), the system will play back the names of all callers. Only you, as Chairperson, will hear the roll call. After the conference, you will receive an automated email detailing the usage on your conference call. We can’t provide names unless you have activated PIN codes, however, we do provide you with the number they called from. You also receive this information on your invoice at the end of each month.


2. How many people can our product accommodate?


Our Reservationless (automated, 24x7 on-demand) service allows up to 100 callers by default. We can set it higher, but you will need to call us.


3. How secure is your service?


The service is as secure as your dial-in number and entry codes. Additionally, you have the ability to lock the conference at any time by dialing “*5”. Once you have locked the conference, nobody else can enter/listen, including our operators. Another option for highly secure conferences is turning on PIN codes for your account. This requires all callers to be setup in advance with a unique code.


4. How do I record my conference call?


Once dialed in as the Chairperson, you simply dial “*8” and follow the system prompts. For more detailed information and a user’s guide, click here. Once you have recorded the conference call, it remains in your account until you record again and overwrite it. Click here for instructions on giving people on-demand access to your recording via phone. See below for getting a digital copy of your recording.


5. What is a WAV file?


WAV is a common digital file format. When you record your conference call it is stored on our system as a digital file in the WAV format. Virtually all computers now come with free software (media players) that can play the WAV file through the computers speakers.


6. How can I get a WAV file?


If you want a WAV file of your recording, you must order it from us by contacting your account manager or calling Customer Service. Be sure to tell us before you make a new recording and overwrite this file. We copy the WAV to a server with public access and send you the link via email.


7. How long does it take to receive my recording and what format will it be sent in?


The link to your WAV file will be emailed to you, generally, within about 1 hour of your conference conclusion. If you want a WAV file of your recording, you must order it from us by contacting your account manager or calling Customer Service. Access to your recording via telephone is available immediately afterwards.


8. Do I call you to schedule a conference?


Unless you think you may have more than 100 callers, you do not need to “schedule a conference” with us at all. The service is available 24x7, on-demand. Just give your conference invitees the date and time, the dial-in number, and the Participant Entry Code.


9. What additional features do you offer for Reservationless phone conferencing (mute, etc.)?


Some of the features that are included in the Reservationless phone conferencing service are: No reservation required, automated 24/7 service , hosts up to 100 people (can be expanded if desired), permanent Toll-free Dial-in number and entry codes, global Access and international dial-ins, free wallet cards for each user, billing code option, *0 operator support, 24X7 phone and email support, chairperson dial-out capability, automated recording and playback options, detailed invoice with cost center breakdown, and emailed phone usage summary report.


10. How do I change my room features?


In the near future we will allow you to do this online, but for now please contact your account manager or Customer Service.


11. Why would someone choose Operator-Assisted instead of Reservationless?


Conference calls that are very large and/or complex are often better off using professional operators. The following are just a few examples of features only available with an Operator-Assisted conference call that can add a professional polish to your event: toll Free and toll (for international callers) dial-in with live operator, operator monitoring, sub-conference, communications line, presentation mode, music hold, polling, questions and answers, and security/conference lock.


12. How can I not have people on the phone that I don't want in a particular call?


Change your Participant Entry Code, lock your conference, or turn on PIN codes.


13. Can I have multiple chairpersons in conference?


Yes. Multiple callers may use the Chairperson Entry Code. All Chairpersons will have access to the Chairperson-only features.


14. If I don’t use my codes for a certain period of time do they expire?


We have never deactivated codes or accounts for inactivity in the past. In the future, should we decide to do so, you will be given plenty of advance notice via phone and email.



Operator - Assisted and Event Phone Conferencing



1. What services do I get with an Operator-Assisted conference that I don't get with the automated service?


Operator-Assisted conferences are for those that need a professionally run conference. Here are just a few of the services that are can be included: live operator to greet each caller and collect contact information, sub-conference with multiple speakers in advance, lead operator gives real-time updates of audience counts and takes last minute script changes, lead operator to introduce speaker(s) and make announcements from your script, fully moderated questions and answer (Q&A) session (muting and unmuting of callers lines and introduction of those with questions), real-time monitoring and troubleshooting (i.e. sound quality, dialing out to missing speakers, etc.), operator announcements at the end of the conference call.


2. How do I record?


Just tell us that you want it recorded when you make your reservation. We take care of the rest.


3. How will I be able to know who attended the call?


For a small additional fee, we will send you a Participation Report which provides all the contact information our operators gathered from each caller prior to the conference call starting.



Web Conferencing



1. How many people can your product accommodate?


WebInterpoint accommodates up to 100 by default – with no advance reservation required. If you might have more than 100 showing up, please let us know in advance so we can change your account settings.


2. How secure is your service?


Highly. Attendees must know the date and time of your conference, the login page URL, and the Participant Entry Code to get in. All sessions use SSL encryption to keep hackers from spying on your meetings.


3. What are the major differences between per-minute web conferencing and flat rate web conferencing (payment options and features)?


Our default pricing for WebInterpoint is per-minute; you pay only for actual usage – by the minute, per person connected. Per-minute pricing is a post-pay model; we invoice you at the end of each month based on actual usage. Our flat-rate model is a subscription-like service; you pre-pay monthly for “Rooms”. The number of Rooms you buy defines how many simultaneous meetings you can have. The size of the Room (the number of attendees it will accommodate) determines the rate you pay.


4. If I use WebInterpoint, do I have to use your phone conferencing?


No, but for 3 or more participants, you should probably consider it.

Yes we can, please click here for complete details on recording a web conference and the related charges.

No, Remote Control and application/desktop sharing are included features of WebInterpoint. Also, our user guide gives a good overview of most features and how to initiate them.


8. If I don’t use my codes for a certain period of time do they expire? Do I need to reactivate my account?


We have never deactivated codes or accounts for inactivity in the past. In the future, should we decide to do so, you will be given plenty of advance notice via phone and email.
