A recent survey of 1,205 business decision makers shows that 96% consider video conferencing removes distance barriers and improves productivity.
Furthermore, video conferencing is set to become more popular with more than half of respondents (52%) anticipating video will be their preferred way of working by 2016.
At Lane End Conference Centre, one of the largest residential conference venues in UK, these figures come as no surprise.
Heni Fourie, Sales and Marketing Manager at the International conference centre, said: “We took steps to implement a direct fibre link a year ago to support effective, reliable video conferencing over the internet.
“Since then we have seen a steady increase in the number of companies, large and small, using video conference facilities to collaborate with colleagues in the UK and abroad.”
The direct fibre link at Lane End guarantees visitors super fast internet with a top speed of 100 MB - ideal for video conferencing.
What are the business benefits for communicating via video? The main reasons include:
- Reduction in fuel costs
- Less impact on the environment
- More time to get on with the job in hand.
Lane End conference centre offers hi-tech video conferencing facilities across the site and free super speed internet – currently only available to one per cent of the UK.
Combined with airy conference rooms, over 100 en-suite bedrooms and delicious on-site catering this award-winning UK conference venue offers the best of everything.
The conference centre is located 30-minutes drive from the centre of London in the idyllic village of Lane End, Buckinghamshire.
