Globalization in business may have to wait or at least be done in an alternative way as most businesses situated in the United States have reportedly cut down on business travel costs in line with the growing credit crunch evident today. So for the executives who have been known to travel here and there ever quite so often in a year, a large reduction in such an activity is expected to occur as companies are continuing to find ways to survive the financial crisis befalling us.
But the question is, is it really a concern that companies may find as alarming? Remember that technology was supposed to cover all of these things. For sure it is a matter of fine-tuning the implementation and transition of technology and what it can do for business. Through the Internet, a lot of things can happen. Sure there will be no more physical presence but it is about legality and communication that makes business ends meet.
Trust and authenticity may be a question for most. But companies can turn to a couple of way to ensure that their transactions are indeed authentic and true. A lot of this can be done and besides, telecommuting offers a lot of innovations. Electronic mail or even real time chatting with videos to boot can more than save companies a lot of money. All it takes is a couple of adjustments and you may find businesses operating normally.
It is all about integration and allowing technology to take its place. Businesses can benefit a lot if they know which technological offering to use and align with business issues today.
