Houston, Texas November 17, 2009 — omNovia Technologies today announced that the National Forest Foundation (NFF) has selected omNovia Web Conference as its online collaboration and communication platform between employees and partner groups across the country. omNovia will provide an interactive web-based meeting platform to the NFF, while helping it to reduce its carbon footprint by reducing employees’ and partners’ needs to commute or travel for business.
The National Forest Foundation, which brings people together to restore and enhance our National Forests and Grasslands, will now utilize omNovia’s next generation web conferencing technology in their work to engage more Americans in community-based and national programs to conserve and restore America’s National Forests. NFF will leverage omNovia’s services to support peer learning amongst collaborative stewardship groups, nonprofits and the Forest Service.
“We are excited to use omNovia’s advanced web conferencing technology to improve productivity while reducing our carbon footprint,” said Mr. Bill Possiel, President of the NFF. He also said that, “Forests in America can absorb only 10 percent of the nation’s carbon emissions. We know that it is helpful for all of us to reduce our level of carbon dioxide emissions. Many of our daily activities result in the release of greenhouse gases, however, travel by car and plane, and use of utilities are the major sources of an individual’s carbon emissions. We encourage all organizations to utilize web conferencing technology as a way to reduce their impacts on the environment”.
Mr. Shawn Shadfar, Chief Executive Officer at omNovia Technologies, stated that, “In addition to providing cutting-edge web conferencing solutions that accelerate productivity and reduce cost, we are also proud to help organizations around the globe become more eco-friendly by reducing their carbon footprint with online meetings. We are very happy to partner with the National Forest Foundation”.
omNovia’s rich content room features include the World Map feature, which allows presenters and moderators to show their attendees an interactive map containing the location of each participant. World Map feature also allows businesses to calculate how much carbon dioxide they save by eliminating business travel.
