GBTA Forecasts U.S. Travel Spending to reach $310 Billion
In a news release by the Global Business Travel Association, U.S. business travel is expected to eclipse $310 Billion in 2015, an increase over 2014’s $292.2 Billion, respectively. No doubt, travel is a huge expense for many businesses, but there are ways to increase productivity while also lowering overall travel costs. Improvements in technology have helped videoconferencing gain popularity over the past decade, and videoconferencing has proven to save time, money, and also helps minimize the environmental impact related to transportation and CO2.
“In the past, videoconferencing systems could be quite expensive and somewhat difficult to use…those days are long gone,” says Barry Sawayer, CEO at Trinity Video Communications. “VTC systems are less expensive today and give you more options than ever before, like Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and cloud-based solutions. There are several affordable products on the market that can help any company reduce their travel budget. It (videoconferencing) just makes good business sense,” says Sawayer.
