Powwownow brings global workers into the huddle

Our phone numbers give Powwownow's callers a voice in more than 40 countries.

All the Thrills with Fewer Bills

Isn’t it great when things work together? Powwownow (acquired by PGi in 2013) offers low-cost conference calling with pay-as-you-go pricing that’s added to your regular phone bill. The UK-based service promotes remote working and collaboration with conferencing services that bring co-workers into the conversation via high-quality international calls and with consolidated billing. That’s something global businesses can rally around.

Powwownow Challenges

Powwownow is on a mission to remove complexity from conferencing. In order to deliver an easy-to-use product with low costs, the company needed to look outside the boundaries of traditional telecoms. Establishing interconnects and building relationships with carriers in each of the countries they serve would have been a major undertaking. They needed a provider with the legs to cover dozens of countries at once.

Powwownow took advantage of Voxbone’s private VoIP backbone with interconnections that ensured inbound calls matched or exceeded the quality offered by traditional PSTN delivery. In addition, all dual-tone multi-frequency signaling (DTMF) information sent by audio conference organizers and users can be correctly transmitted as they would with a PSTN connection.

Powwownow Results

Voxbone has helped Powwownow extend its reach in more than 40 countries. As a licensed operator for its entire global footprint, Voxbone ensures compliance with local telecommunication laws and regulations. As a result, Powwownow’s customers experience crystal-clear, compliant international calling–without complications.

“Thanks to Voxbone, we were able to expand local access to our conference call service rapidly on a global level. We are truly impressed by the flexibility and scalability.”
