A year ago, Micki Clark had no time to enjoy her Colorado horse ranch. She was too busy commuting 60 miles to Denver to the office of Communiqué, her family owned real estate and marketing firm.

Clark is now saving thousands of dollars on overhead as Communiqué's staff communicates via teleconferencing, VoIP, and monthly meetings at a local restaurants.
