Dial800’s BizCloud® VoIP phone services are the secure cloud-based features your business needs to stay connected. When you can’t meet in person because of remote workers, travel, or employees are spread between multiple offices, add BizCloud MEET virtual meetings to your Dial800 account to manage communications with one company.
Why Use BizCloud MEET?
BizCloud MEET is one of Dial800’s newest tools for staying connected to your office, coworkers, and clients from any location through virtual meetings and conference calls.
With more employees working remote full or part time, more support for Work from Home days, and businesses with offices spread across the country, video meetings allow coworkers to connect quickly, build important team bonds and share work seamlessly.
If your business already uses Dial800 for call tracking and analytics or call routing, this provides you with virtual meeting capabilities all within the same Dial800 framework you already use.

Rooms in BizCloud MEET are where meetings are held. These rooms can hold recurring meetings, or they can be used on an as-needed basis when hosting a meeting. You can have your own personal room, as well as share a room with others.
Each Room has a unique meeting ID and pass code you can share with others when you invite them to meet using your Room.
In the My Rooms tab, you can view which meeting rooms you have access.
To host or join a meeting, you can navigate to the main log in page and enter the meeting room credentials for your meeting room. This quick way of logging in and starting a meeting is most often used to one-off unscheduled video calls.
You can start your meeting by clicking Start.
You can also log into your account and schedule a recurring meeting under the My Rooms tab by clicking Create Meeting. This is a useful way to set up daily, weekly, or monthly meetings you regularly have with your team or one-on-one.
You can change your Room passcode by clicking manage.
To see the meeting room information, click info. You can copy the meeting link from here to share with meeting participants in addition to the invite they will be sent if you schedule a meeting.
In the Meeting History tab, you can view all meetings in your Rooms along with when the meeting started, how long it lasted, and a list of participants.
Within BizCloud MEET, there are many features to help you communicate with your team.
