Eyjafjallajökull may be hard to pronounce but the world has felt the effects of its volcanic eruptions over the past few weeks. Major airlines have taken a devastating hit as passengers were left stranded due to flight restrictions. The larger business community has also felt the impact of this natural occurrence, with losses said to run into the billions.

Hard Lessons

FedEx responded to the crisis by flying packages to Spain then moving them to other parts of Europe by road. But what about other companies that do business in Europe that didn’t have that option? Travelers were stuck in airports throughout Europe. They had to pay exorbitant rates for cab and train rides to get home where possible. All of this means one thing; companies must explore other ways of conducting business globally. One way is through utilization of video conferencing and remote PC.

The Revenue Fallout

Business travel in the area affected by the volcanic ash also resulted in huge losses for companies around the world. According to some reports, airlines were losing as much as $200 million a day due to grounded flights. Add to this the emotional impact of folks cut off from family members and being stuck in airports for days. It is easy to see that this experience won’t be soon forgotten. In total, the airline industry is believed to have lost $1.7 billion. This is a harsh blow for an industry struggling to get back on its feet.

With a good web conferencing product, face-to-face meetings can be easily planned and executed. File transfer, session recording, thousands of attendees, all these are possible with video conferencing.

Already there is talk that many companies have become new converts to the idea of adopting a web conference solution. Now due to the lessons learned from Eyjafjallajökull, it has become clear that business travel is a somewhat outdated concept. The bottom line is, regardless of nature’s whims business has to get done. Sending employees to various destinations around the world has already lost favor with many companies.

Companies that provide webinar software should now be poised to further prove their worth to the modern business environment. Now that flights have resumed and special flight zones have been established, the airlines will have to dust themselves off and move on. So the next time your company outlines major travel plans, don’t hesitate to step up and save them a bundle.
