Delivering VTC Visibility for Microsoft Teams

We’ve all heard it a million times: “What gets measured gets managed,” but just because this phrase might be overused doesn’t make it any less true. Generally speaking, it’s nearly impossible to evaluate progress of an initiative, without a clear understanding of what’s transpiring and how well it’s going.  This philosophy is baked deep within BlueJeans’ DNA and demonstrated through our award-winning, real-time management dashboard, Command Center

Our customers love Command Center because it provides instant visibility across their entire BlueJeans environment. By delivering in-meeting analytics, instant alerting, and live meeting controls, BlueJeans Command Center gives administrators the ability to holistically measure, monitor, and manage their video collaboration environment. 

Today, we are excited to announce the General Availability of a new tab within Command Center that is fully dedicated to the BlueJeans Gateway for Microsoft Teams. BlueJeans’ pure-SaaS cloud video interop solution is the easiest way for organizations to use their existing video teleconferencing (VTC) room system equipment and connect directly to Microsoft Teams Meetings. By visualizing VTC endpoint data within Command Center, Microsoft Teams administrators are now able to better manage their heterogenous room system estate and proactively monitor their environment for any trouble spots.

Many of our Gateway customers are investing in long-term, strategic Teams rollouts that require significant planning and change management. Command Center gives them a new tool at their disposal to evaluate and pinpoint Teams adoption challenges by being able to better understand if their users are taking advantage of the room infrastructure or if there are potential network challenges that need to be addressed before Teams is ready for a prime time rollout. 

Additionally, we know that many of our channel partners are helping their customers with Teams rollouts, and we are excited that they can now use Command Center to help with their deployments and provide a valuable interface for delivering ongoing managed services. 

For a limited time, we are offering BlueJeans Gateway licenses for 12 months free for up to 5 concurrent video conference room connections. This free promotion includes access to our new Command Center capabilities and will give you incredible insight as you continue on your Microsoft Teams adoption journey. Click here to sign up and get started with the easiest and fastest way to connect your conference rooms to Teams Meetings.
