Shedding the £££s: A round up of changes PowWowNow has made during lockdown

13th October 2020
By Tom Ladle

It’s safe to say that 2020 has been an unpredictable year. If you were to say in 2019 that there was going to be a nationwide lockdown, you probably would have chuckled and exclaimed, ‘behave!’. But that’s exactly what did happen and as a result, we’ve been busy making changes. So, here’s a round up of changes PowWowNow has made since lockdown and how we’ve shed the £££s, allowing colleagues to easily stay in contact, at an affordable price.

Introduced FREE conference calling across all plans

With lockdown, we saw a drastic change in user behaviour. The office spider phone was swapped out for mobile, with many of us now having to work from home. To address this, we decided to introduce free conference calling across all our plans, with our ‘0330’ number. Now, anyone who signs up for our Basic plan can make conference calls in the UK and we won’t charge a penny. On top of this, minutes used will most likely be included in your landline/mobile bundled minutes.

50% off all paid plans

Our main mission is to support UK businesses, particularly during this trying time when companies need to be equipped with remote working tools to communicate effectively. As our way of making this happen, we are offering 50% off all paid plans. Meaning our new ‘Lite’ product will be slashed from £6 to £3 per month and our Pro plan, we’re offering for £5 instead of £10 per month. We also still have a 14 day free trial on our Pro plan, if you want to try before you buy. No credit card, no downloads, and no commitment.

A new ‘Lite’ product

We know that not everyone wants a fully-fledged, guns blazing video call product. There’re many reasons for this. You might not use the product often as you simply don’t have many meetings, you might prefer conference calling over video calling, screen share does the job etc, etc. That’s why we’ve launched our ‘Lite’ product, which offers free UK calls, screen share and 1-to-1 video, for those occasions when you do fancy switching the webcam on. You’ll also get other handy features such as audio recording, screen share recording, online Guest list and in-meeting chat.

Video calls go mobile

The change in user behaviour also spurred us on to make some massive improvements to our mobile App. Previously, only offering conference calls, with our latest update Lite and Pro plan users can host and join video calls through our App, using our browser based product. Available to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Plenty more to come

We hope these changes make a big difference for many UK businesses and as always, we will continue to make improvements that benefit our consumers and support the continued shift towards remote working. So, watch this space!
