Blue Jeans Network, the company that created the cloud video market, today announced it has completed key integrations with industry-leading technology partners that enable video meetings to be a simple, seamless, and central part of everyday work. After completing a highly successful beta program, BlueJeans for Workplace by Facebook is now generally available. Additionally, BlueJeans partnered with Samsung Electronics to develop an enhanced application for the Samsung DeX which turns Samsung mobile phones into powerful computing devices.
“Everything we do is aimed at providing a great user experience,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, co-founder and Executive Chairman at BlueJeans. “We took on the hard work and complexity of application and product integration so that we could deliver a beautiful video meeting experience that delights our customers, enhances productivity, and enriches communications.”
“BlueJeans continues to prove that it offers the simplest and most compelling solutions for all the different ways people work, and this is just the beginning.”
For example, BlueJeans for Workplace by Facebook makes it possible to conduct interactive video meetings and deliver presentations via BlueJeans while sharing content through Workplace. Users can also broadcast multi-party events through their feed and ensure that the right people see content whenever they need it. This integration has drawn praise from numerous beta customers and is now available to all BlueJeans customers.
“Streaming our all hands meetings directly into Workplace has been great,” said Karen Possemato, Vice President, Corporate Marketing and Communications at Illumina.
“It’s easier for our employees to access content by providing a central place for them to watch meetings live and view the recordings. BlueJeans understands what’s needed to support the evolving nature of our business and work processes.”
In addition, when it comes to innovation in mobile, BlueJeans has partnered with Samsung to further the capabilities of recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+. This integration delivers a BlueJeans meeting experience to Samsung Galaxy mobile users whether tethered with Samsung DeX or untethered and handheld.
“BlueJeans’ commitment to providing seamless video meeting experiences is the primary reason we selected the company as a development partner,” said Mok Oh, Vice President, Business Development at Samsung Electronics.
“Regardless of where users are or how they choose to connect, BlueJeans just works. This approach strongly aligns with Samsung’s vision. We want customers to be free to use their mobile devices in ever-more productive ways. BlueJeans helps them do that.”
These latest solutions further solidify BlueJeans’ position as the most functional, easy-to-use meeting platform on the market. They build upon BlueJeans’ existing integrations with Google Calendar, Facebook Live, Slack, HipChat, and Skype for Business, as well as its support for WebRTC.
BlueJeans’ commitment to developing a user-friendly, intuitive, and comprehensive portfolio also extends to its trial and purchase options. The company recently enhanced its ecommerce and trial experience to make trying and buying its video meeting technology even easier and more accessible. Because more than 70 percent of BlueJeans’ customer engagements begin with a trial, BlueJeans now provides a full-featured, 30-day free trial that fits companies’ requirements.
