Phonesty – video conferencing done right


Some people may remember: Phonesty made its mark in the telecommunications sector around 2008/2009 when it revolutionized the capabilities of telephone conferencing in Germany and Europe.  At a time when expensive premium numbers were still the only option for conference calls, the team at Phonesty GmbH revolutionized the market. Under the premise “Phonesty – Phone & Honesty”, Phonesty launched a paradigm shift. Moving away from expensive solutions using high cost premium numbers – towards a fair and transparent offer for businesses and private users alike.

Phonesty offered telephone conferences at competitive, affordable prices over normal landline numbers and was providing a level of security and privacy that others in the industry couldn�t match. Through Phonesty, customers were finally offered an adequate and completely secure solution. Especially when exchanging sensitive information, customers could only dream of such safety and confidentiality until then: Phonesty offers this security while other competitors may squirm to avoid these very obligations, aiming to increase their profits by collecting your data.

Strong data protection is included with Phonesty. The services of Phonesty GmbH are subject to the regulations of the German Federal Network Agency and the European Data Protection Act: Experts know what this means, but for the layman, this assures:

The highest possible privacy and security for you and your conference.

Based on its previous recipe for success, the company has continued to optimize its operations. With a meaningful approach, of course. Phonesty is now setting off with its new product, right where its competitors show weaknesses. Or at the very least have been low performing.

Phonesty presents video conferences

In the last two years in particular, the option for virtual meetings has become more and more important, whether for companies, NGOs, or in the academic, artistic and teaching sectors.  Many of us remember how extensively the media reported on this when a number of schools were unable to continue with remote learning because many of the used services did not comply with national and international data protection laws, hardly coming close to meeting these.

Florian Trinkwalder and Mathias Hinrichs have taken a close look at trends in the market and with Phonesty Video have now launched much more than just another ‘Me Tooâ€? video call application. One of the key benefits of the Phonesty team: The underlying software is developed in-house and not purchased externally, as is the case with the competition. This allows to react in real time to customer needs and to create a product that meets quickly changing requirements. This way of working has proven to be successful and important at Phonesty GmbH over the course of the last 16 years. Now letâ€?s take a closer look at video conferencing, now offered by Phonesty.

Phonesty Video succeeds where others fail

Florian Trinkwalder presents an excellent example for the use of the Phonesty video app. As an enormously active person in the field of pastoral care, he noticed a very interesting development: Phonesty telephone conferencing was initially used by many churches and congregations to reach those who would have liked to attend sermons or meetings but were unable to do so for health reasons. By simply setting up a conference call with Phonesty, this problem was quickly solved. The same is happening with video conferencing today. And with Phonesty there is no need to fear that participants will be involuntarily presented to the whole world, as with a video on YouTube, or that unauthorized persons will gain access to information from the conference. In this way, even those who cannot be physically present are included and can enjoy the community.

Video conferences with Phonesty are a protected space

And this is exactly what makes Phonesty Video attractive for many sectors.

Easy to use app – great opportunities

Be it a private talk, a company meeting, an important NGO meeting or the familiar, family-like unity of a faith community or even a self-help group. In its design and features, Phonesty GmbH also fulfills all the requirements needed for therapeutic video calls. Similarly, Phonesty Video is equally suitable for remote learning, thus taking some of the burden off the shoulders of school administrators and teachers.

Although Phonesty can be used in many complex situations itâ€?s apps for Android and iOS are still very simple to use.  Big buttons, clear wording and instructions enable even those who are less tech-savvy and know little about ‘teleconferencingâ€? to quickly get started and navigate the functions. A new conference room is quickly set up, where what is said in that room, stays in that room. Thatâ€?s because Phonesty is following and even surpassing the same strong data protection laws that also apply to conference calling. 

Conferences can also be managed easily via PC after creating an account online. Once the Phonesty conference room is set up and the participants are invited, everyone can join at the agreed time and the conference can begin.

Diverse services for individual needs

Phonesty offers different packages, from Phonesty Free, to Phonesty Premium and Phonesty Professional. There is a suitable cost model for everyone. The call costs themselves depend on the respective telephone providers of the participants. In the case of a flat rate, it might even be completely free.

And Phonesty has even more up its sleeve:

“Of course, our video services include more than just simple communication. Features like ‘Plenum Modeâ€?, conference scheduling or ‘Screen Showâ€? for presentations are only a few to mention. Conversations can also very easily be recorded, and the combination of web and telephone access is also possible Our conference rooms are always active and available at any time.

Video conferencing has never been so simple, so unique, so flexible, so secure.

Phonesty – a word play with ‘Phoneâ€? and Honesty – we remain committed to this claim.

We look forward to answering your queries.
