Communicating in the Year 2009, Not your Grandmother’s telephone!

I am always looking for new, innovative ways of doing business. So when a solution comes along that not only leverages updated technologies and medium, but more importantly saves businesses, employees, and any individual time, money, and productivity, I have to evangelize it…….

The days of schlepping cross country, sitting in traffic, and running through airports to catch a flight are over.  Travel budgets are being cut yet companies still have to communicate with and effectively train geographically diverse employees, customers, and suppliers. What if you had an updated means of staying home, sitting in your office, and still interact with people around the country or world?

The solution is videoconferencing and videocasting.  “I tried videoconferencing and it didn’t work,” is a frequent response.  Today’s videoconferencing is light years ahead of where it was even 5 years ago. The software is free.  Communicate with up to 20 people on the Internet, share documents, and use your laptop or PC with a camera/microphone combination that costs less than $150. Pay only for time used which is a miniscule fraction of an airplane ticket!

Videocasting is the solution for companies who need to communicate with large groups of geographically diverse people. Videocasting is analogous to two way Internet TV.  You can take questions, show videos during your program, and talk with hundreds of thousands of people. A division of a Fortune 500 company needed to get new product information out to their customers throughout the US and Canada. Ribbon Internet Broadcasting Network (ontheribbon.com) videocasted a 90-minute program with 1100 sites and approximately 1500 people watching, and interacting with the presenters.  The program was archived and could be watched later for those who missed the live presentation.  All the viewers need is a dial up Internet connection to watch the high-quality program.

For businesses who must comply with EEOC regulations and other government rules, videocasting is the most cost-effective way to comply. Ribbon recently saved a company more than $25,000 and six weeks of time in travel and employee costs to train their employees in 23 branches. Call them TODAY!

So, the next time you’re sick of waiting in airports, sitting in traffic, or hearing your travel budget is cut, try videoconferencing and videocasting. Call 800-511-6844 or go to www.ontheribbon.com for more information. Videoconferencing and videocasting is easy to set up, easy to use, and helps you cost effectively stay connected to your employees, customers, and suppliers.
