Video Apps for Government

- March 7, 2012 - 0 Comments

This week is National Telework week. I’m working from home using WebEx video to collaborate with Cisco colleagues around the world. 

My 3-day telework pledge will save me $81.90 in transporation costs and 122 pounds of pollutants for the week. If I continue the 3-day telework routine for a year, I will save $4,095 in transporation costs and 6,120 pounds of pollutants or 3.06 tons for the year.   Imagine how much we could all save if every government worker and citizen was able to use network collaboration and video to work from home. 

Also this week,  the President members of the Pacific Alliance participated in the first Virtual Presidential Summit through TelePresence without the need to travel.  During the 90-minute “Historic Presidential Summit,”  the Presidents of Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica and Panama (by telephone) were able to specify the fundamental points for the signature of the treaty for the “Pacific Alliance.” 

There are many exciting video applications for government including:

Please let me know how you are using video apps in your government agency to cut costs and enhance services for citizens and constituents in your community.
