BT Tool Tracks Carbon Savings of Video Conferencing vs Travel

December 11, 2009 at 12:43 am Leave a comment

BT Conferencing announced the availability of Engage Tracker, a travel and carbon savings tool that helps companies document monetary savings resulting from the use of video conferencing. With real-time reporting capabilities, the tool is able to calculate employee travel costs avoided through the use of video conferencing, as well as carbon emission reductions resulting from reduced travel.    

            Engage Tracker facilitates accurate tracking of cost savings using the customer’s own data, not estimates or models. Travel savings can include avoided air travel and per diem costs. Carbon emission reductions are calculated based on avoided air travel.

            Jeff Prestel, general manager of BT Conferencing’s Video Business Unit, said: “Our customers who use video conferencing want concrete, measurable evidence of the technology’s benefits. Engage Tracker provides them with cost savings to prove return on investment as well as actual carbon emissions savings. Both are critical to making a solid business case for continuing to invest in video conferencing technology.”

            Several global enterprises have piloted Engage Tracker, reporting thousands of avoided trips, millions of dollars saved and thousands of tons of carbon emissions avoided on an annualized basis.         

            Engage Tracker is available as an add-on module to Engage Meeting Manager, BT’s online scheduling and call launch tool.
