TrustRadius recently announced their 2020 Tech Cares Award—which celebrates companies that have gone above and beyond to provide their communities, clients, and front line workers with support during the COVID-19 crisis—and BlueJeans is proud to be among those being recognized.

According to TrustRadius CEO Vinay Bhagat:

“We are excited to announce our first-ever Tech Cares Award Winners. This pandemic isn’t just a test of fortitude. It's an opportunity to distinguish yourself. We have been completely inspired by the way the B2B technology industry responded to COVID-19. So many companies pivoted with grace, leading to many of them standing out in our minds as major community contributors during this time. Not only do we feel that these companies are deserving of recognition—we also consider their example when deciding how we ourselves can find new ways to give back.”

BlueJeans is offering free access to our video conferencing service to first responders and NGOs helping communities manage outbreaks and protect citizens from further exposure. All first responders and NGOs will be granted organization-wide access to BlueJeans for an initial period of 90 days, which may be extended as needed (see our blog post from March on how we are helping customer during the pandemic).

To be accepted for the Tech Cares Award, each nominated organization had to be a B2B technology company that demonstrated above-and-beyond caring during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone was welcome to nominate an organization for this award, including those who work for or with the company. All nominations were thoroughly vetted by the TrustRadius research team.

In addition to nominations, the Tech Cares Award was also given on the basis of reviewer feedback on TrustRadius. Organizations whose reviews clearly illustrated how much they care during this crisis have also been recognized.

Like the feedback from TrustRadius reviewer Tammy M. McCoy, Ph.D, who is Teaching Through COVID-19 Pandemic Using BlueJeans:

“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, my campus has shifted to remote learning, meaning that I will now be using BlueJeans for synchronous and asynchronous teaching and for holding consultations and other meetings. So, it is truly addressing the problem of needing to stay connected with colleagues and students when unable to meet face-to-face.”

TrustRadius is the fastest growing, most trusted customer voice and insights platform that helps tech buyers make great decisions and helps technology vendors acquire and retain great customers. Each month, over 1 million B2B technology buyers use verified reviews and ratings on to make informed purchasing decisions. Headquartered in Austin, TX, TrustRadius was founded by successful entrepreneurs and is backed by Next Coast Ventures, Mayfield Fund, and LiveOak Venture Partners.
