Every time I get on a plane to go to another meeting in another city I yearn for the day when the bulk of the population gets up to speed with virtual whiteboards and teleconferences. This story gives us an update.
“UK business executives are fed up of wasting money and time travelling to meetings. Advances in technology, such as the advent of virtual whiteboards and improved call quality have encouraged companies across the UK to adopt virtual meetings. They are benefiting from faster decision making, greater collaboration with global colleagues, increased employee productivity, money savings, as well as the knowledge they are reducing the environmental impact of carbon emissions through less air travel,” commented Phil Marshman, director of VoIP at Zycko.
