Did you hear the big news? We have a new offer available for IT and business leaders to enjoy our free cloud video interop for Microsoft Teams—the BlueJeans Gateway!

To fully maximize the Microsoft Teams experience, companies need to connect their existing legacy conference rooms to Teams. And in case you didn’t know, the BlueJeans Gateway for Microsoft Teams is the easiest way to connect your conference rooms and huddle spaces to Microsoft Teams meetings.

The BlueJeans Gateway ensures room deployments are easy and fast to install, with advanced security and real-time management and analytics capability. Deploying in minutes means every employee can participate in meetings, whether via desktops, conference rooms or huddle spaces. Furthermore, as a Microsoft-certified partner, BlueJeans’ pure SaaS solution prevents unnecessary complexity by interoperating with thousands of room system configurations—including Cisco, Poly and Lifesize—making the most of your existing hardware investments.

And starting this week….for organizations moving to Microsoft Teams, we are offering BlueJeans Gateway licenses for 12 months free for up to 5 concurrent video conference room connections.

Our promotion is designed to help customers deploy Microsoft Teams effectively in their room environments with very low risk. With Microsoft Teams, users stay in the same workflows they use today, and our SaaS Gateway ensures deployments are easy to install, with advanced security and real-time analytics capabilities. Rip and replace is not always the best option and this promotion will help companies can leverage the existing hardware, deploy quickly, and focus on business outcomes.

We think this is pretty great! But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Irwin Lazar, vice president and service director at Nemertes Research had to say:

"Team Collaboration adoption continues to rapidly accelerate, with more than 63% of the 645 companies participating in Nemertes' ‘Workplace Collaboration: Research Study 2019-20’ now using or planning to deploy team collaboration apps. Microsoft Teams leads the way with nearly 56% of Team Collaboration adopters. Achieving the full business benefits of Microsoft Teams means extending video meeting capabilities to existing room systems. Already nearly half of our research participants are using or planning to use meeting interoperability services like BlueJeans Gateway to bring the Microsoft Teams meeting experience to existing video endpoints." 

Designed to allow users to easily access Teams video meetings on any existing room system, the pure SaaS infrastructure of BlueJeans Gateway converts existing conference rooms into Teams-ready meeting rooms quickly and simply, minimizing deployment and management headaches.  With BlueJeans Gateway for Microsoft Teams, organizations can enable their users to leverage Teams video meetings across their diverse room environments to better connect people for more productive meetings.
