I used to work in an IT firm for like 5 years since 1999. Back in year 2000, it was already super cool and interesting to have a phone conferencing with clients from Singapore or Sweden to have meeting, which usually comprises of creative team here and management team over the other end.
Looking now that it is 2007, video conferencing is widely available with humanize, intelligent network infrastructure and communications tools like USB camera, IP phone that support collaboration in real time, from anywhere in the world.
In order to keep up with the marketplace, it is necessary for organizations of businesses, governments, educational, and medical to equip themselves with powerful tools like this, as it saves cost, increase productivity, profitability, and competitiveness as never before.
