InterCall offers a bunch of solutions centered around conferencing. Audio conferencing, web conferencing, video conferencing, they’ve got it all covered. For BlackBerry, they offer Mobile Assistant. Using the application grants you one-click access to your audio conferences, which you can join as a participant or as conference leader, with the conference controls integrated right into the app. It can store up to 128 conference profiles for quick access and, best of all, it’s completely free.
Ring2 specializes in phone- and web-based conferencing, recently bundled with medical services for BlackBerry. Their mobile solution allows users to participate in and control phone conferences from anywhere. Using a BlackBerry, you can be instantly notified when someone joins a conference and see a list of all participants. If you don’t recognize a name, you can drop them from the conference entirely or place them on hold, and even mute users if background noise interferes with the call. Finally, you can save the entire conference to MP3 for later retrieval. Hopefully we’ll get to see some new features at their booth at WES.
Pearl Medical is teaming up with Ring2 to offer its members call conferencing control via BlackBerry. Not only does Ring2‘s interface let you see who’s logged into a call, but you can record the call as an MP3, and assign billing information. Pearl Medical offers a slew of BlackBerry services to medical professionals, with subscription fees that can be subsidized down to £10 per month by answering some online questionnaires. Any job in medicine is a data-intensive affair, so it’s good to see BlackBerry delivering it in whichever way it can.
