Scientific software company Godel Technologies has invested in a state of the art video conferencing system to help facilitate its working relationship with clients abroad.

GodelTech, which is headquartered in Manchester with two development centres in Europe and a clutch of international clients, has turned its Manchester Science Park office into a video conferencing suite to enable face-to-face discussion with overseas clients and manage its impact on the environment by cutting the need for travel.

The Tandberg system was originally installed to aid communication with Godel’s newest client, Norwegian-based ADB Systemer which develops technologies for the oil & gas, construction and healthcare industries. GodelTech now hopes all clients will adopt the system in the coming 12 months.

Terry Bland, Managing Director of GodelTech says: “Meeting with clients face to face makes it much easier to do business efficiently and using the video conferencing system enables us to do this with our clients who are based in other countries. I also believe that being able to see clients and brings trust and friendliness into the equation, which is a must in the business environment.”

“The system also helps us manage our impact on the environment as we can have teleconferences with ADB in Norway without producing any of the harmful emissions that flying or driving would.”
