Reaping the Benefits of Video Conferencing

You’re considering investing in a video conferencing system. You know it would reduce travel costs – are there other benefits that would help justify the implementation costs and learning curve?


The use of video conferencing (VC) is growing at an unprecedented rate, due to improved reliability, reduced cost and a greater understanding of its advantages. Many companies find that VC quickly becomes a break-even investment. A recent survey of VC users ranked the top benefits as:

  • Increased efficiency & productivity (94%) – VC lets employees and execs   maximize face time with customers and partners worldwide. The improved communication compared to audio conferences further boost productivity. Meeting efficiency improves with the ability to demo products and other visual materials.
  • Increased impact of discussions (88%) – The ability to see those you converse with, gives greater impact to VC discussions.
  • Expedited decision-making (87%) – The ability to quickly convene a VC with geographically dispersed participants can accelerate virtually any aspect of business.
  • Reduced travel (87%) – Reducing travel costs for just one employee can cover the expense of a VC implementation.

Additional key benefits noted include improved employee health and satisfaction, improved communication and employee/partner relationships, reduced environmental impact, and overall boost in competitive advantage.
