Forbes magazine recently interviewed the CIO of global architecture firm Woods Bagot about their use of video conferencing to support their “global studio.” “We’re not like other practices, where someone in the New York office doesn’t know someone else in the Chicago office. We leverage our skill pool globally. We have experts from Dubai, Sydney and San Francisco working on a very large development in the Middle East,” he said.

Enabling their experts to easily meet face-to-face and collaborate anytime with each other and clients is a priority for the firm, and why they were drawn to video conferencing. Not only has Woods Bagot’s global deployment of video helped streamline business processes and improved client relations, the savings for the first board meeting replaced by visual communications was $120,000 just for airfare. Now board meetings are held more often at a fraction of the previous costs, which has helped speed decision making.
