FreeConference Goes Mobile with Instant Text Alerts and Conferencing Info

New level of convenience is one more way to make free conferencing easy

LOS ANGELES, CA—September 16, 2008—FreeConference, the originators of free audio conference call services, announced the availability of mobile text message services, bringing a new level of convenience to businesses by helping make sure conferences happen on time, every time.

Instant Text Alerts send a text message reminder with your conference information to your mobile phone, fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled start of your conference. These alerts are available with Web-Scheduled conferences through the FreeConference website for both organizers and participants.

In addition, conference organizers can send a text message to their own mobile phone with their Conference On-Demand information. This can be used for both one-touch dial-out and forwarding to other participants, when organizers want to set up a conference call directly from their mobile phone.

"We are making sure conference calling is simple, convenient and reliable, wherever you are and whenever you need it," commented Alex Cory, CEO of Global Conference Partners, parent company of FreeConference. "We already have you covered on the web or from your desktop.  With text messaging services, we are adding the convenience of managing calls right from your mobile phone, ensuring that you never have to miss a conference call again or scramble for the number to call.”

Both services are available in the US for $0.45/text message through NEARU, a leading provider of local mobile search and alerts, and can be easily ordered through the FreeConference website. Instant Text Alerts can be sent for any individual conference, or as a recurring convenience for all scheduled conferences.
