3 Reasons Videoconferencing Can Save Your Agency Money and Hassle

Learn how video conferencing technology reduces travel costs and increases productivity for law enforcement

Did you know that Business travel costs a tremendous amount of money. U.S. business travel in 2014 reached $292.2 billion and is expected to advance 6.2 percent in 2015 to $310.2 billion, while total person-trip volume is expected to increase 1.7 percent to 490.4 million trips for the year. That’s why law enforcement agencies are considering video collaboration tools to reduce the cost and hassle associated with meetings.

A recent survey on PoliceOne found a shifting attitude among police departments and law enforcement agencies toward video collaboration tools, increasingly viewing them as a great and cost-effective alternative to travel. In fact, nearly 50 percent of police respondents already use video daily at their department and nearly 60 percent said they would consider using video conferencing instead of incurring travel expenses.

So why are agencies starting to look at video conferencing as an attractive alternative to setting aside budget dollars for business travel? Because video conferencing technology has come a long way and is starting to prove it’s just as effective as face-to-face meetings.
