BCNET, a not for profit organization serving British Columbia’s higher education and research institutions, found the right desktop and room system video collaboration solution in Blue Jeans after evaluating 17 vendors. 

BCNET’s members think Blue Jeans has helped improve their face to face collaboration:

 “The [Blue Jeans] service has been easy to administer, especially with respect to connecting Skype users to a meeting” ~BCNET Collaboration Technologies Working Group Board Report on Desktop Video Conferencing Solutions

“With Blue Jeans you get a high quality video experience which makes it better than other desktop solutions.  The type of connectivity Blue Jeans offers with Skype and room system connections will be used more and more, allowing people to connect from anywhere, anytime – that’s true flexibility.” ~ Mark Zuberbuhler, Executive Producer - Digital Media, Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, University of British Columbia

“In February alone, we had over 30 Blue Jeans meetings with our members, project teams, working groups and committees who are located at campuses across B.C. Not only is our face-to-face communication more effective, but participation in meetings has greatly improved as people have the option to join the meeting from their home or office.” ~Keir Novik, IT Manager
