Use Telepresence Technologies To Tap Into Your Workforce IP

September 2, 2009: 03:44 AM EST
A company’s workforce is a vast reservoir of product research and development ideas: a living, breathing form of intellectual property. The problem is how to tap into that reservoir, to gather and share the ideas. For the past few years, companies like Procter & Gamble and Cisco Systems have employed high-def videoconferencing and instant messaging over integrated voice, video, and data networks, so-called “telepresence” technologies. These money-saving technologies have made it easier for people to share insights and ideas. “The videos and collaboration tools help Cisco create a great sense of community within the ranks,” says one exec.
