Have you done your ROI?
The ROI model
A natural way of working "Our new SMART collaboration capability enables people to meet, irrespective of where they are in the world and interact as if they were in the same room. This has had a massive impact on travel costs and reduced our carbon footprint significantly. Last week I trained 34 people in India from Ipswich and yesterday I trained a further eight – that’s a saving of a flight to India, plus my time, in just two weeks.“ “ Ultimately we’re using this technology to change and transform the culture of the company.” Bola Oshisanwo, Director, Agile Development Centre “ We can set up a conference in less than three minutes and SMART’s collaboration technology fits perfectly with our mantras of ‘walk up and use’ and ‘three touches and go’. It really is that simple. The reduction in travel, time and associated costs is quite staggering. The senior team has gained a day a month in time and, as no one has to travel, the overall productivity of the team is greatly enhanced . It’s a win-win situation for everyone.” Alan Parkin, Programme Manager, Infrastructure Design and Delivery, O2
