Cost and convenience are the key benefits to using video conferencing.
Video conferencing costs a fraction of what it takes to bring several people together at one site for a meeting, especially if air travel is involved. Video conferencing minimizes travel, giving employees a more productive use of their valuable time. And video conferencing saves you and your employees from the inevitable travel fatigue.
