SAN FRANCISCO—Last Friday, Clark Builders Group (CBG) was honored with a 2012 Gold Vision Award at Constructech magazine's annual awards ceremony. The Constructech Vision Awards honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying innovative technologies to their everyday businesses. By employing Cisco Tandberg Video Conferencing, CBG was recognized this year for vastly improving the way the company communicates both internally and externally.

"The Vision Awards have a steep tradition rooted in honoring the most forward-thinking, innovative companies in the construction industry," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech magazine. "Make no mistake, the 2012 winners carry on this stellar tradition. These companies have implemented technology solutions that are improving their businesses far beyond what we could have even imagined just a few years ago. Now, with an eye on tomorrow, they are using technology to serve as a strong foundation as we advance the future of IT in the industry."

CBG's upgrade to the latest in video conferencing software provides the growing company a variety of corporate and other benefits. It not only reduces business expenses through a 50% decrease in travel costs between jobsites nationwide, but it makes CBG more environmentally friendly while improving employee productivity and work-life balance.

The integration of Voice over IP (VoIP) further decreases CBG's operational costs by eliminating long distance calling charges for weekly internal meetings. The face-to-face communication helps business contacts and associates create a sense of community, even between parties who may never physically meet.

"This type of advanced video conferencing technology promotes the same level of collaboration that you could achieve in person, but much more quickly, efficiently, and economically," said Justin Thomas, information technology analyst at CBG. "In particular, we're thrilled to earn a Constructech award for a tool that not only improves productivity, but the quality of our employees' lives."

Constructech hosted the Vision Awards competition for the first time in 2000, and has since honored numerous innovative companies in the construction and technology industries. Each year winners must demonstrate not only how the newly adopted technology diminished a company challenge, but must also outline the specific benefits of the adopted technology. This year marks CBG's 12th consecutive win, proving once again that CBG is a sophisticated competitor in its marketplace and is committed to leveraging the best of current technologies.
