Web Conferencing and Telecommuting

A couple of months ago Wainhouse surveyed 200 users of web conferencing technology. The report was released recently with an executive summary which can be found here. The report focused on brand preference, user habits and performance. I did not read the full report but there were some interesting pieces of information to be found in the executive summary.

One of the most interesting pieces was the graph below.

The graph shows the types of technologies people use when they telecommute. At the top of the list is web conferencing which is being used 78% of the time. Web Conferencing beat out other more prominent collaboration tools such as IM and VoIP. Certainly these results are skewed since the survey only included current users of web conferencing but it is still a telling statistic. People who use web conferencing find it a more effective tool for telecommuting and collaborating than IM and several other technologies touted as collaboration tools. So, the question is, what are you using at your company for telecommuting and collaboration?

There were some other pieces of interesting data as well that I will be discussing in a future blog.

This is definitely amazing to know that 78% of the telecommuters use Web Conferencing at the first place. Good data, especially the graph.
