Three Ways to Leverage the Many Benefits of Virtual Collaboration
Three Ways to Leverage the Many Benefits of Virtual Collaboration

Execution, however, invariably focused on travel reduction. The recurring savings from less travel recouped the upfront investment for telepresence systems, so less travel was the metric that mattered.
