IR Video Conferencing Time Savings Analysis

By using IR’s conferencing facilities available in either our Calgary or Edmonton offices, we can help to save you time, reduce costs, and help to make your day run smoother. Here’s a look at how.

Scenario 1.
You have a three hour meeting in Toronto next Monday at 9:00. If you wanted to avoid spending the night in Toronto, you would do the following:
Leave home at 10:00 pm to arrive at the airport, park, and check-in for your flight that leaves just after midnight.

Next, you could try to sleep on the plane, land at about 6:00 am Toronto time, and arrive in to the terminal about 6:30 am, freshen up, catch a cab and fight rush hour traffic into downtown Toronto. You would likely arrive at your meeting at about 8:30 and be ready for your meeting.

Your meeting ends about noon, you grab a bite to eat, then catch a cab and make your way back to the airport to catch the 4:00 flight back home. You board your plane, try to sleep again on the 4.5 hour flight back to Alberta and land at just after 6:30 pm, get back to your car and drive home.

It’s now about 8:00 pm when you walk through the door. You’ve missed the whole day, didn’t enjoy dinner with your family, and you’re dead-tired and go right to sleep.

Here’s the breakdown of the day:

  • Travel & park at airport – 1 hour
  • Check-in & board plane – 1 hour
  • Flight to Toronto – 4 hours
  • Landing and taxi to gate – 30 minutes
  • Cab to downtown Toronto – 1 to 1.5 hours
  • Cab back to airport – 45 minutes
  • Check-in & board plane – 1 hour
  • Flight to Alberta – 4.5 hours
  • Landing and taxi to gate – 30 minutes
  • Shuttle back to parking, drive home – 1 hour
  • Total travel time only – 15 hours, 45 minutes

Scenario 2

  • You schedule the meeting via video conference for 9:00 ET, 7:00 MT
  • You leave home at 6:15 and arrive at IR’s office at 6:45
  • You are connected by video conference, hold your meeting, then drive back to your office at 10:30
  • You spend the rest of your productive day at the office and are home for dinner at 5:30
  • Total travel time – 45 minutes
