Re: Savings and Increased Communication
That is a good point, I feel, as generation Y begins to gain experience in the workplace, this generation is going to employ modes of communication that they are familiar with and that offer a high level of efficiency. Text is good because an employee can go over information and review it again in-order to extract greater value.

Another area that I feel is changing is the mode by which employees are gaining information and knowledge. Books used to be the primary source of information, but now real-time information is becoming increasingly important.

Re: Savings and Increased Communication
One thing that I see in the SF Bay Area is that many companies don't eve have a phone system.  They rely on cell phones and more accurately texting.  It is a new world and a new day there are certainly needs for phone systems in large corporations, health care space and companies that require call centers but fewer and fewer phone systems are being sold and more and more are hosted.  Unified Communications as it is is really cloud based and work flow based, in my humble opinion

Savings and Increased Communication
A consumer can switch some of their communication needs from the public network to an IP network, for instance, cellular minutes consumed can be lowered by using Skype. A small change can convert a consumer's bill from $162 to $46. It would also allow the user to switch to video, if audio is falling short in providing the desired level of communication, increasing the quality of communication. Multiply these savings with a large user-base in an enterprise setting, and the savings gained can make a business competitive in the market place.
