Multiple Collaboration Solutions Can Really Cost You - GotoMeeting


Whether you work at a mid-sized company or a Fortune 500 Enterprise, we’re willing to bet you and your colleagues use a variety of collaboration tools throughout your day. And we get it, this happens all the time! Typically, especially for web conferencing, there’s a solution that was deployed company-wide and there are the solutions people “choose” (usually to remedy the things they don’t like about that first solution they got). But the thing is, if you’re a leader in the company or even in the IT department, you’ve got to understand how maintaining those multiple solutions is costing your business.

Think about your IT leader having to manage all your employees in two different admin centers. Not exactly a seamless experience bouncing between the two. Now carry that down to all your IT department helping to maintain who is using what and navigating between the two to troubleshoot and manage rollouts. It’s confusing and frankly inefficient. According to Basex research, workflow interruptions like these can cost the U.S. economy $588 billion a year. Granted, we’re only talking about a fraction of that total. But even a tiny fraction of $588 billion is a lot!

The bottom line is, organizations who use more than one tool for the same task are wasting time and money. The good news? GoToMeeting can fix this problem for collaboration, and often reduce spend in the process. Consolidating your web conferencing with GoToMeeting is something we help customers do every day and why they prefer us over the competition.
