To better enable employee connection and communication and to deliver on its renewed commitment to sustainability, P&G identified, and ultimately implemented, a green strategy supported by a high-end communications system. It began deploying Video Collaboration Studios across its global network in October 2007 with the goal of implementing 43 studios in just nine months.
Today, there are more than 50 studios up and running, saving the company millions in travel costs. P&G expects these saving will continue to grow as more studios are added and video enabled collaboration tools become embedded in business practices.
A significant benefit of the technology is the ability to reduce the environmental impact of traveling.
