Avoid travel issues with video conferencing technology

Wednesday, July 24 2013

Video conferencing technology can be used to replace business travel as the software allows professionals to communicate with almost anyone from around the world. From the comfort of their desks or home offices, employees can easily reach out to their clients and colleagues to discuss important matters.

Additionally, it seems as though few workers will miss traveling to remote locations to conduct business. There are many reasons why people hate going on trips, particularly when their flying to their destinations. According to a recent TripAdvisor survey, the most common complaints about air travel are the uncomfortable seats, high prices, delays, long lines and annoying passengers. Addison Schonland, a partner at AirInsight.com, joked to the The New York Times that it may be better to turn to shipping services to get from one location to another.

"Perhaps there's a future for flying on U.P.S. and FedEx - they can give you a roomy box, pick you up at your door and, best of all, get you there on time," Schonland said.

Employers can ensure that staff members don't have to endure excruciating flights by implementing video conference software. The communications solution is an ideal alternative to business travel.
