We’ve recently read a two part report about the way videoconferencing has changed how people communicate with each other, especially at work.
With over 16 years of experience in the supply and support of videoconferencing, we know that there are a great number of benefits that will be realised by people using videoconferencing.
It has been widely documented that in the UK we work much longer hours than some of our European counterparts – videoconferencing is a fantastic way of redressing the work-life balance that seems to be somewhat weighted in favour of work. Imagine, if you will, you are required to attend a 2 hour meeting at one of your company’s other offices, which is 2 hours drive away. Assuming you were to work an 8 hour day – 75%
of your day will be taken up attending this meeting, when really it should only have been 25%
, had you used videoconferencing. Also then take into account the savings of other costs – travel including fuel, wear and tear on the car, road tolls and subsistence and the reduction in carbon emissions
by not travelling.
Traffic jams can be avoided when you use videoconferencing
We are not by any means suggesting that you never travel again, far from it, but by replacing, for example, even one in every three meetings with videoconferencing the time and cost savings that will be made are enormous. If you would like to read more, here are the two parts [part 1] [part 2] of the report mentioned above, why not give us a call and we can show you just how much your organisation could save by investing in this technology.
