Business travel is coming under closer scrutiny: In Germany alone, companies spend
approximately 50 billion euros on business travel every year.
To partially offset this expense, many companies are replacing business trips with online
meetings. With this technology, customers and partners are able to communicate with images and audio over the Internet, while special presentation functions reinforce the personal aspects of a meeting. Software licenses, Webcams, and headsets are worth the investments. Companies that use Web meetings discover new methods of collaboration and reduce their own output of greenhouse gases.

Even when facing challenging economic times, businesses still need to communicate and rely on technology to connect with customers, partners, suppliers and their own employees. Cutting back on communications spending will have a negative effect in a long downturn. It will leave any business that does so with fewer options when conditions improve and at a disadvantage compared to competitors that continue to invest. However, there are 10 steps that can be taken to grow the value and use of communications, while controlling costs.
Most companies have plans in place to ensure employee-to-employee communications following a business disruption event (BDE). But many companies haven’t addressed how communications will be maintained with partners (suppliers, vendors, channel partners, etc.) and customers.
Guests, contractors, vendors, business partners, and other temporary users require and expect certain level of network access within organizations that they visit. Corporate network access has been typically open; internal LAN connections have seldom required authentication. Today however, regulatory and other security concerns demand that organizations adopt a more secure posture towards these short-term users.
Email has become today's most mission-critical communication channel. Each and every day, 800 million business users worldwide use email during the course of their work day and about 80 percent of a company's intellectual property passes though its email server. Email is a vital component of both internal communication between employees and external communication with customers and business partners. It has become such an integral part of normal day-to-day business operations that most companies simply cannot function without it: when email stops, your ability to conduct business also stops.
