Rengo Co., Ltd. has two head offices, one in Osaka and the other in Tokyo, and the functions of many departments are divided between the two locations. Therefore, the company strove not only to improve the communication and confirmation efficiency within each department, but also to enhance interdepartmental communication and reduce employee travelling expenses. Rengo had been using a videoconference system for some time, but the system was installed only in the areas designated for directors, thus restricting use by departments for routine business purposes. Also, to attend a meeting held at a paper manufacturing group company in Fukushima Prefecture, employees had to travel from Osaka or Tokyo to Fukushima. So Rengo was seeking ways to reduce the time and expenses incurred by trips from Osaka and Tokyo. To solve these problems, the General Affairs Department spearheaded a study of the benefits of installing a videoconference system that would match the company's needs and streamline the business activities of its departments.
