LONDON, November 26, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year's snow in Britain caused so much disruption to travel and therefore businesses, with estimates as high as GBP3.5 billion. Typically London grinds to a halt and over one in five workers takes a day off. Still caught in the depths of a recession, the country can't afford to be caught out by another bout of snow disruption. And given the availability of pay as you go, affordable, HD quality video conferencing, there is still time to prepare.

VC-NET - - the video conferencing, network and managed services specialist, is advising businesses to consider a pay as you go videoconferencing solution for as little as GBP35 per month.

VC-NET Executive Chairman, Chris Wade, explains: "Britain can't afford another GBP3.5 billion lost to snow disruption and we shouldn't need to! Video conferencing technologies have progressed significantly and are now a real, viable alternative to face to face meetings - a perfect solution for business continuity over what experts are predicting will be a harsh winter."

Businesses are realising that video conferencing is an essential business service that is easily outsourced in the same way that you outsource your payroll services. For example, VC-NET can take an existing, or newly purchased video system and register it to their Booked or Reservationless bridging service. This gives the customer self service or assisted bridged calls, to an unlimited number of endpoints.

Video conferencing is now suitable for board meetings, C level meetings, global recruitment, education and collaboration across all industries - removing travel down time and travel costs. Furthermore, because VC-NET is accredited with all market leading video equipment manufacturers, it can create the best possible video conference solution for customers.
