Keeping costs to a minimum is vital to improving your bottom line. Communicating with clients and colleagues, wherever they are in the world, is key to the success of any business. But travel costs can make a big dent in your profits too. And it’s not just things like flights, fuel and hotel bills that can affect your company’s profitability when you’re spending time on the road – it also means you are spending less time in the office, which can hurt productivity.
