TANDBERG, the market leader for video conferencing and Telepresence solutions, today announced that it is opening up its 35 global offices for businesses around the world to connect their colleagues and partners affected by snow and transport disruption. Companies can book up to three free video conferencing or Telepresence meetings between now and the end of March 2010 to replace business trips that might otherwise have involved flying, using the channel tunnel or making hazardous car journeys.

Simon Egan, VP for TANDBERG across Western Europe and Sub Saharan Africa explained: "Our 'Fly Free' program can offer surprising relief to businesses who will suffer with stranded employees over the coming months. Modern video conferencing delivers tangible business advantage for our customers all year round, especially when workers can't get to where they need to be because of industrial action, extreme weather conditions or other transport failures."

"On average, TANDBERG customers save over 30% in travel costs within the first year and see a payback within six months," added Egan. "The opportunity to use our facilities for free this winter will save companies travelling time and money; enough for some even to cover the cost of a video solution of their own. Importantly, it also has a dramatic impact on lowering carbon emissions."

Users can now book their meeting at www.tandberg.com/flyfree much like booking a flight, by selecting a 'departure' and 'destination' point from a list of 35 possible locations, as well as convenient dates and times. This free invitation offers companies a means to not only reduce business travel costs and carbon footprint, but also cut staff downtime.
