Teleconferencing makes business travel less common, but experts make the case for the business trip.

CHICAGO — Technology has made many things easy. We record TV shows and fast-forward through commercials. We listen to far-flung radio broadcasts live on our telephones. And we meet face to face with clients and staff members from thousands of miles away.

That last leap has been boosted in recent years, particularly with the advent of TelePresence, a video-conferencing technology. The well-received product can generate life-size, high-definition images (and audio) of whoever is sitting opposite you, no matter how far away.

The benefits of teleconferencing are clear: cost, time saved and healthier, happier employees who aren't traveling so much.
