O2 Just Call Me - One Way to Make Your Life Simpler in 2017

Dishwashers and washing machines are just some of many technical innovations that make our lives easier, simpler and more efficient, and which we take completely for granted. And O2 do their best to do the same for conference calls (as well as business apps, flexible working, Wi-Fi, 4G Calling and much more).

O2’s new conference calling service ‘O2 Just Call Me’ is actually quite revolutionary in its own, small way, and it’s no wonder it made its way into CCS Insight CEO Shaun Collins’ top three pieces of tech he couldn’t live without in 2017. He called it ‘indispensable’.

We previously joined a conference call by dialling long and difficult-to-remember bridge numbers and access codes. We tolerated having to re-record our name every time we dialled in. And we put up with never being quite sure who was on the call at any time.

Not anymore, ‘O2 Just Call Me’ has radically changed that experience, for the better. The host schedules the call via an app, then all the participants need to do is dial the host’s mobile number, which is probably already stored in their contacts list. The host can see exactly who’s on the call, who’s speaking at any time and has complete control over the participants, with the power to refuse, mute, muffle or remove them.

O2 customers, whose feedback and insights helped develop and refine the service, have been giving it great reviews and regularly express how it’s been helping them work more productively and collaboratively.

On average, participants can join a call just under a minute quicker than using traditional conference call services. That’s up to eight hours a year saved just in joining conference calls – who wouldn’t want a day of wasted time back every year? And if you need to set up a call in a hurry, say, for emergency repair works, every second counts.

Once you start using ‘O2 Just Call Me’, it’s easy to see how clunky and frustrating traditional audio conference solutions are in comparison. Try it, and like a dishwasher, you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without it.
