Utilize Current Technology to Reduce Travel Costs

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

By using our Video telecommunications System or Microsoft Office Communicator for Live meetings, we can reduce travel costs for training significantly. Instead of having employees travel to one designated area for a certain training, the training facilitators can offer the training via V-tel or Office Communicator. This would eliminate having to spend money on airfare, baggage fees, taxi, shuttle bus, hotel stay, parking, & meals. This would also keep employees at work 1-2 more days because it would eliminate travel days which also cost money. By using our current technology, employees get the training at their work site & eliminate the costs of traveling to another city or state. We have wonderful technology, let's use it!
