The use of video conferencing systems in Houston has become increasingly popular with businesses of all types and sizes. One of the main reasons for the increase in use is due to the high cost of travel associated with meeting and servicing customers outside of the Houston metro area.
Take for example the cost associated with two employees, located in Houston, that need to meet with a client in Corpus Christi. With this being a little over 200 miles away, there are sure to be some heavy costs associated with this meeting:
Downtime – In this particular example, whether the employees fly or drive, the downtime will be about the same, roughly 3 hours per employee, or a total of 12 hours that were not spent meeting with the client but that the company is still required to pay wages for.
On-the-road Expenses – These will include the cost of a rental car, fuel, and meals during travel.
Overnight Stay Expenses – In a situation where the meeting takes place over 2 days, you can include the cost of a hotel stay for your employees, which can also mean additional meal expenses or other necessary “away from home” expenditures.
For the scenario above, if the employees would have used video conferencing to conduct the meeting with their client directly from their Houston office, they would have been able to completely eliminate all travel expenses as well as the cost associated with loss of productivity.
In conclusion, through the use of a professional Houston video conferencing system, local businesses now have the ability to connect and service customers located all over the world for a fraction of the cost of traveling to their physical location.
