Teliris, the leading global provider of agile telepresence and collaboration, announced today that British American Tobacco will double their current Teliris Telepresence deployment as well as upgrade all existing systems to realize the benefits of the newly released agile 6G platform.

Leveraging Teliris’ groundbreaking 6G platform, British American Tobacco will double the number of Teliris Telepresence rooms originally anticipated this year at the same total cost of ownership enabling the company to surpass their carbon reduction goals.

According to David Sampson, British American Tobacco’s Group Mobility & Virtual Working Manager, “When British American Tobacco adopted telepresence, we set ourselves a number of ‘hard’ and ’soft’ targets for benefits. Our experience to date has been that all our targets have been exceeded. As well as the financial benefits, we also hope this will help lead to new ways of working and collaborating, ultimately giving our staff choices about how they want to work, freeing up their time and improving their work/life balance. Additionally, we hope telepresence will help us meet the stated sustainability goals, including a real reduction in our carbon footprint. We have set ourselves a target to reduce 11,000 tonnes of carbon over the next five years through telepresence and we have managed to a reduction of 50 percent of that in just one year.”

“We are thrilled, although not surprised, that British American Tobacco and other premier customers quickly realized the unrivaled value that Teliris’ 6G platform delivers,” said Tony Smith, Teliris European Managing Director. “We have secured over 130 orders in less than 30 days since our newest innovation became generally available and expect to continue at the same pace in the future.”

Additionally, the company saved over 6,000 tonnes of carbon by eliminating 5,592 short, medium and long haul flights.
