I am furiously reporting a story about what companies are doing to reduce business travel.
Does anyone out there have a story to tell?
Please comment here if you do!
I can put you in touch with a number of companies who are using WebEx's online collaboration tools to reduce and even elimiate the need for travel.
I know you met with one of the WebEx's executives in January and got a quick overview of their software, but let me know if I can provide more info.
As an 800-person, multi-location Civil Engineering firm, we have been effectively using Riverbed technology to reduce the travel of both people and data. Our projects require multiple, large CAD files and, traditionally, a team of engineers sitting within local area network (LAN) distance to those files – Opening an 80 meg CAD file over the wide area network (WAN) is an exercise in futility. With the Riverbed Steelhead appliances providing file optimization, we can now share those files over the WAN. This means a member of a project team can reside within any office (or even at home with the Riverbed Mobile product), thus reducing travel while ensuring we have the right people working on our projects.
