No flights, no problem for Easynet Global Services customers
19 April 2010
Face to face business meetings continue to take place across the world despite current flight restrictions, as Easynet Global Services’ customers avoid travel with managed telepresence. International sales meetings, board meetings and finance meetings are unaffected by the Icelandic volcano eruptions on European airspace, and continue to take place in high-specification telepresence suites across the world. Those customers who do not yet have the solution are being encouraged to use it free of charge1, to experience it for themselves.
Koen Vanpraet, global sales and marketing director for Easynet Global Services, said: “The frustration of delayed international travel is a thing of the past for our managed telepresence customers. As an essential part of our customers’ business continuity plans, it really is business as usual as they retain their competitive edge and spend time in the office, not sleeping rough at an airport or jostling for space on a packed ferry!”

Telepresence in action
In July 2008, the then-UK Minister of State for the Environment, the Hon Phil Woolas MP, delivered his keynote speech at the 2nd Annual Climate Change Summit in Sydney, Australia without leaving London. Appearing live in Sydney using telepresence technology, Mr Woolas saved an estimated 60 hours of travel time and 6.2 tons of CO2 emissions on his air flight alone.
