Brockmann and Company, the market insight firm
released its latest report entitled 'Telepresence by Industry 2008'. The report is available for free download for a limited time on http://www.brockmann.com
. The report compares the importance, value, consumption and expectations among 420 business users in seven industry groupings including finance, telecom, computer, software, medical, education and public sectors.
Peter Brockmann, President of Brockmann and Company said, "This report defines 'telepresence' broadly to include immersive, modular and high definition video conferencing products and services. Users from the education sector valued the service the most, preferring to pay an average $121.05 to attend a session rather than drive 40 miles to a face-to-face meeting."
Brockmann added, "The financial services industries are at the forefront of expectations. They are the most aggressive at exploiting the 'green' attributes of telepresence - getting the same information in and out of a session as they might in a face-to-face meeting, but without the travel."
Brockmann added, "This report defines the perspective of our global business user panel and presents industry-by-industry variances for discussions."
