Annual cost of virtual- vs. real-world travel

One of the biggest questions we get from customers is, how much money can I save by holding meetings and other events in ProtoSphere, rather than traveling to some distant location? We thought an easy way to explain the answer would be to create a chart that compares the cost of licensing ProtoSphere to the cost of traveling. (You can click it to enlarge.)

The chart shows the cost of one user with a single ProtoSphere license, at $900. Next to that, it shows the cost of the user traveling one, five, and 10 times annually, both domestically and internationally.

You can see how the cost of meeting in ProtoSphere remains constant for the year, while other travel costs rise. The travel costs are based on average costs per trip, including air, land, and hotel, according to the American Express Global Business Travel Forecast 2010.

Give the chart a look-see, mull it over, and let us know if you have any questions or feedback. As always, we'd love to hear from you!
