Have you ever done the math on commuting to work? Telecommuting saves money, it’s a fact. Yet most folks are fearful of stepping out of the in-person environment. Luckily the barriers have been broken by Adobe as their new Acrobat Connect Pro software has video, audio, and interactivity that create an almost in-person experience for meeting attendees.
In addition, Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro online meeting software is now offering a free trial and every time someone signs up they donate twenty-five dollars to help a school go green. In fact, Adobe has partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council and the mayors of Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco to help schools go green in their communities. Each city will receive up to $100,000 to create classrooms that foster learning alongside smart environmental practices.
Donations made through the Connect and Conserve campaign will fund schools with goals of becoming LEED-certified, helping them save money moving ahead through solar panels and energy-efficient lighting.
This new Adobe software allows you to “dynamically share documents and presentations, including audio and videoconferences, with business partners around the world, all without having to leave your desk. Meaning less travel for you and fewer emissions for the planet.”
The future of telecommuting just got brighter! Imagine if every city provided incentives like this for their businesses to begin telecommuting, moving us closer to a world free of rush hour.
