BlueJeans Named a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Jeans Network, Inc. today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions. BlueJeans is the first cloud service to fully connect desktops, mobile devices, and room systems in one video meeting.

Gartner evaluates vendors for the Magic Quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to the report, “Meeting solutions blend communications, collaboration and content to enable real-time group work from anywhere.” The report further states, “By 2022, 65% of meeting solutions users will take advantage of SIP/VoIP-based audioconferencing options embedded in those meeting platforms, up from 20% in 2017.”

“We believe our positioning as a Visionary by Gartner further validates that our cloud-first approach and product roadmap are key drivers for innovation, growth, partner and customer success,” said Quentin Gallivan, Chief Executive Officer, BlueJeans. “Organizations can no longer afford to let their business processes slow them down. With strong technology partnerships and the ability to address a variety of meetings use cases, BlueJeans provides a simple, integrated meeting experience that helps customers streamline collaboration across the enterprise.”

As of September 5, 2018 on Gartner Peer Insights, BlueJeans has received a 4.6 out of 5 customer rating for its meetings solutions platform. In August 2018, a client service manager in the manufacturing industry said, “I believe BlueJeans to be the best meeting software I’ve used. It is easy for the clients to use as well as to call into via phone. Quality of sound and video is never a topic of discussion which is...Amazing!” An information systems analyst in the services sector said in July 2018, “BlueJeans is by far the most intuitively well laid out web conferencing software I have ever used and supported, best of all it is easy for non-technical end users.” In November 2017, a Chief Data Officer in the finance industry called BlueJeans a “great product, relatively easy to implement, with BlueJeans providing high-quality support along the way.” Additionally, earlier this year, BlueJeans was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Meetings Solutions (Web Conferencing), from the Gartner Peer Insights community.

BlueJeans helps some of the world’s largest companies work productively where and when they want by bringing video, audio and web conferencing together into one meetings platform. BlueJeans had an early lead in understanding how the convergence of cloud, mobile and video would impact collaboration strategies. To further strengthen the platform’s enterprise capabilities, BlueJeans released a new version of its video meeting solution this year and also opened up the product’s APIs through its Technology Partner Program to enable innovative companies to build new solutions with BlueJeans support that will ensure communication and collaboration is a seamless experience for the modern workforce.
