Sending Feedback is Easy During Your Mobile Day

Thumbs up or Thumbs Down?  That is the question.

This is our support team’s favorite feature in the MobileDay app.  “Why is that?” you say? Well, it is the fastest way for us to understand what is working for you as a user.  It is also an even better way for us to understand what did not work so well when you tried it.

Here’s how it works.  When you have used the MobileDay Join button for entering a meeting or conference call, the MobileDay interface will then have these opposing thumbs show up on the meeting that has transpired.  If you had an issue with your call you can quickly send us meeting details so we can research the issue and fix any problems by clicking Thumbs Down. When you have a great experience with MobileDay, simply press Thumbs Up and opt to share this mobile meeting success with your colleagues.  We need your help spreading the good word about the magic we call MobileDay so thank you!

Vintage Mobile – Smiling and Dialing

Here at MobileDay, we love vintage mobile phone images. As a career sales guy, this one is is a favorite. Rotary mobile…so cool. ” Smilin’ and Dialin’ “was a term of cold calling endearment back in an entry level job that I once had on an inside sales team. Wow…things have come a long way in telephony…especially in mobile.

A ‘Squirrelly’ Mobile Conference Call

As a knowledge worker, you are likely to at least participate in conference calls, if not hosting them yourself. I have been doing audio conference calls in business for more that 15 years, watching the technology change and morph from scheduling calls with operators into its current form used today, which is primarily reservationless conferencing, that is, using unique combinations of toll-free numbers and pass codes and/or PINs to get into a particular call instead of using an operator.  Heck, these calls have even become free to organize and use. Simple right?  Well, the mad growth in the business use of the mobile smartphone,  and the giant wave of remote work and road work being done, has created a whole new dimension to this newer method of conferencing.  Mobile devices now account for over 25% of all the people dialing into conference calls  each day and that number is increasing.  As we transition to joining calls from our cool new mobile device, there are new nuances that make things more challenging.  Multitasking, network quality, battery life, pass codes and PINs, an app for this and app for that… it can be a challenge just to join a call.

 

Since going mobile, I have had my fair share of times where the call was a bust.  I was working from home and discovered that my dog left the screen door open while I was on a conference call.  (Yes, my dog can open doors, but cannot close them.)  A squirrel had entered the house while I was in my home office and proceeded to tear about trying to find solace from my dog, the nice canine gentlemen that let him into this fine establishment (aka my living room).  Dog chases squirrel, things get loud, I start to yell (profane) all while my mobile phone remained un-muted.  The kicker was that this call was with my whole staff.  I sounded (and acted) like a lunatic until it discovered the open screen and returned to the yard.  Needless to say, they will never forget.

“MobileDay Helps Me Save Time and Makes It Easy for Me to Create My Own Conference Calls, As Well As Join Others.”

Meghann C., Colorado

Title: Social Media Consultant

Company Type:  Marketing Consultancy

Testimonial: “I am on conference calls constantly (isn’t every entrepreneur these days!) I tend to find myself fumbling through calendars to find the call in numbers, access codes and pin numbers, then writing them down on any scrap of paper I can find – sometimes while in my car – so that I can call in. I’ve been using MobileDay for a couple of weeks now and it’s so easy! As a business owner, every minute counts, so I’m always looking for time-saving apps, tools, and techniques! MobileDay helps me save time and makes it easy for me to create my own conference calls, as well as join others. The numbers I’ve entered work with their system so that when I need to,  the app dials the numbers correctly (at this point 100% of the time!) Excited to continue using MobileDay and see just how much time and headache it can save me!”
