"BlueJeans prides itself on delivering an easy, one-touch video meeting experience, which is one of the top reasons that customers choose our platform," said Quentin Gallivan, CEO of BlueJeans. "We believe Gartner’s positioning of BlueJeans as a Visionary validates our investments in supporting customer workflows with strategic workflow integrations as well as ongoing interoperability. We will continue to execute on our vision to create online meeting experiences that allow users to collaborate more effectively."
Being a visionary means BlueJeans aligns with the forward-thinking needs of customers in order to deliver an enterprise-grade, easy-to-use video calling service that enhances productivity and raises the bar for modern workplace collaboration. From one-to-one video calls to room-based video conferencing and all-hands meeting events, BlueJeans delivers online meeting solutions that work in every scenario.
At its core, a meeting solution is a real-time team collaboration tool that supports collective work over an enterprise for one-on-one meetings, all-hands presentations, training sessions and live webinars. The online meeting solution market is at the convergence of web conferencing and group video systems, which involve mobility, video and endpoint support - essential online meeting requirements. Video as a service (VaaS), cloud-based conferencing, group video systems and premises-based video infrastructure technology are included in the meeting solution market. Each solution considered for inclusion in the Magic Quadrant was evaluated on its ability to deliver presentations, screen sharing, text chat, whiteboard sharing, basic security, integrated VoIP audio, live video and mobility.
BlueJeans’ cloud-based video platform “offers simplicity of use and extensive features across meetings, large events and workflow integrations.” Beyond our commitment to being an open, interoperable platform for video meetings, BlueJeans’ strategic integrations with Skype for Business, Workplace by Facebook and support for WebRTC are creating meeting experiences so customers can collaborate the way they want.
