Businesses turn to video conferencing say Pennine

Rising petrol costs have fuelled the increase in enquiries for video conferencing systems, according to Pennine Telecom.

Companies large and small nationwide, are reviewing the way they hold meetings and communicate with each other due to the dramatic increase in fuel costs.

But the benefits don’t just stop there. Companies are finding that by implementing video conferencing, they are also saving valuable time, as well as reducing their carbon footprint.

“In the last six months we have seen an increase in the number of enquiries for video conferencing,” said Belinda McGee, Marketing Manager at Pennine Telecom.

“There’s the obvious savings on travel costs that can be made, but there are other compelling benefits for using video conferencing. If you imagine how many hours account for business travel within your workplace and convert this time into real productive time, straight away efficiencies and productivity will be improved. And by reducing stressful travel time your staff will have a better work life balance.

“Maybe you have a new product launch or training to be delivered to teams across multi-sites, by using video conferencing you can be assured that a unified message is sent to everyone at the same time.”

Due to the increase in enquiries, Pennine will be holding two seminars later this year, where interested parties can come along to see demonstrations, ask questions and try the equipment out for themselves.
