Deliver Your News to the World Video Conferencing Allows Acorn Engineering To Reduce Their Meeting Costs and Save Valuable Employee Time


LOS ANGELES, CA, October 4, 2006-Two years ago Tom Laidlaw, Acorn Engineering’s IT Manager, was faced with a dilemma: how can the company effectively conduct meetings with their various companies, which expand from one coast to the other, while reducing costs? His solution: MegaMeeting.

With over 75 patents and several major product lines, including literally thousands of products, Acorn Engineering operates internationally with over 800 employees and utilizes over 500,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.

Acorn Engineering currently uses MegaMeeting in its Sales and Marketing departments, as well as for their Administration and Executives. Not only has MegaMeeting made the execution of meetings more efficient and effective, but through the use of MegaMeeting’s technology, Acorn Engineering has reduced their meeting costs and now their employees’ time is used more proficiently. Tom Laidlaw attests that the greatest benefits he has received through using MegaMeeting is the cost and time savings because his employees “do not have to drive or fly to have face to face meetings.”

In addition to conducting sales and company meetings, Acorn Engineering is also using MegaMeeting’s web and video conferencing services to conduct their weekly management meetings for their companies throughout the country.

The specific features of MegaMeeting that Acorn Engineering implements most often are the video conferencing capabilities that allow meeting attendees to see each other, the ability to share a PowerPoint presentation via the Internet, as well as screen sharing capabilities.

One of the main reasons Acorn Engineering chose MegaMeeting over other web and video conferencing systems was due to MegaMeeting’s ability to provide its services at a lower cost then its competitors.
