With the holidays coming to a close, we’re finally getting the chance to reflect on all of the exciting activities and announcements that took place in 2019. It’s truly been a standout year for BlueJeans—especially when it comes to awards—and we couldn’t be more honored by all of the love we’ve received this year for our products, services and customer support. To see just what we mean, here’s a recap of the awards BlueJeans received in 2019:
We kicked off 2019 with a bang by announcing in January that BlueJeans Command Center was the winner of the 2018 Let’s Do Video (LDV) Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Videoconferencing Analytics/Management Service or Offering.” BlueJeans was also named a finalist by LDV Readers in the following categories:
- Best Software-Based Videoconferencing Room Service (BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Conference Phone)
- Best Cloud Software Videoconferencing Service
- Best Video Services Partner
- Best Interoperability Service or Platform
Also in January, we announced G2 Crowd Ranked BlueJeans a Best Software Company for 2019. As the the largest and most popular marketplace for business software, G2 Crowd’s Best Software Awards provide the definitive ranking of the best software companies and products worldwide to help organizations make better software decisions.
Then, in February, we announced that BlueJeans was Named a 2019 Top Rated Web Conferencing Software by TrustRadius—the most trusted research platform for technology buyers. As an unbiased reflection of customer sentiment, the “Top Rated” awards are the voice of the market and are not influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s company size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer. According to reviewers, email integrations (e.g. Outlook, Office 365, Gmail) and ease of connecting to an online meeting are two of BlueJeans’ strengths.
In April, our CMO Rosanne Saccone was named a PBWC 2019 Industry Leader. Each year, the Professional BusinessWomen of California (PBWC) recognizes emerging leaders and established senior executives who have demonstrated excellence connecting, mentoring and advancing women. The women and men honored have led groundbreaking and industry-changing innovation and have provided unique and unparalleled inspiration to their companies or their communities at large.
In May, under the leadership of CIO Mike Kelly, our customer Red Hat was the recipient of the 2019 CIO 100 Award! Recognizing organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT), the CIO 100 Awards is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Mike Kelly received the award for how Red Hat is using BlueJeans Meetings and Events to instill a collaborative spirit among employees, partners and the open source developer community [also see: Focus on openness and culture when selecting collaboration technology].
In June, BlueJeans won another 2019 Top Rated Award by TrustRadius for our Webinar Software, BlueJeans Events. TrustRadius users praised BlueJeans’ sound and video quality for all situations, the easy-to-use session sign-on experience, and its versatility for use in both small conferences and huddles as well as companywide meetings.
Also in June, BlueJeans Rooms with Dolby Voice Room won the 2019 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award, presented by TMC and INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.
In July, we highlighted the fact that BlueJeans Scored Big in G2 Crowd's Summer 2019 Reports—placing first in the Enterprise Results Index for Video Conferencing, while being named a Leader in two separate Enterprise indexes and one grid on Team Collaboration, as well as a Leader in Screen Sharing!
In August, we announced BlueJeans was named the winner of a silver Stevie® Award in the Customer Service Team of the Year - Computer Services & Software category in The 16th Annual International Business Awards—the world’s premier business awards program. With a record total of more than 4,000 nominations submitted from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry, this award is no small feat!
Also in August, BlueJeans was named a finalist in the Best Collaboration Platform category of the 2019 UC Awards, which focused on collaboration software vendors including video conferencing solutions, team collaboration software, huddle room technology and interactive whiteboards—A big congrats to our friends at Oblong Industries for winning [see how BlueJeans and Oblong work together in: Where did you get all this content?!!!].
To close out August, BlueJeans was named a Hot Vendor in Web and Video Conferencing in Aragon’s 2019 Special Report Part IV. With cloud continuing to drive new use cases and innovation, visual collaboration has become a strategic way to enhance the overall customer journey. The research note identified 4 Hot Vendors who are making a difference in the market.
Finally, in September BlueJeans won the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award, presented by TMC, INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and WebRTC World.
