New company launches web-based plug & play audio and video conferencing software to help small businesses confront rising gas and travel costs.
According to the latest business travel report from American Express, airfares will increase as much as 10% and hotel rates will jump 8%, and as much as 22% in Asia during 2008. These increases will far outpace the projected 2.3% rate of general inflation.
