Improved productivity the big benefit94 per cent agreed videoconferencing allows them to improve efficiency and productivity; 87 per cent said it allows them to reduce travel. That makes productivity the most confirmed benefit of the technology, says Wainhouse
Put it in business apps94 per cent said they’d use videoconferencing more if people they communicate with had it. “Somewhat surprising,” said Wainhouse, was that 83 per cent said they’d use it more if it was integrated with business applications.
