Getting Real Value Out of RaaS

Today, we’re happy to announce the general availability of our BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service (RaaS) with Dolby Voice Room solution in North America! Making it easy to upgrade your meeting rooms and huddle spaces with best-in-class hardware and software, this new subscription service takes the “work” out of deploying and managing conference rooms so that you can focus on getting to work.

The industry is increasingly shifting away from traditional purchasing models in favor of newer, subscription-as-a-service based models that will optimize processes for IT buyers looking to procure technologies as quickly and simply as possible. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2020, all new entrants and 80% of historical vendors will offer subscription-based business models, regardless of where the software resides.

With software, hardware and services available all in one single package, you can use your operating budget to avoid incurring large capital expenditures and sidestep time-consuming internal approval cycles.

Whether you’re an enterprise IT buyer looking to streamline operations or a smaller shop with less IT resources available, BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service with Dolby Voice Room allows you to stay agile to fit the unique and changing needs of your business and deal with whatever comes your way. Here are the top 5 reasons to consider going with the RaaS:

  1. Compelling Cost of Ownership
    Have the freedom to deploy as many BlueJeans Rooms as you need to meet your workplace transformation goals. This adds up to 20-33% lower total cost of ownership over 3 years.
  2. Easy-to-Buy
    Leverage a subscription (OpEx) model to eliminate the hassle of making large capital expenditures—providing financial flexibility.
  3. All Inclusive and Predictable
    Take advantage of a fixed monthly cost that includes service, warranty, hardware, support and management tools with no additional costs or hidden fees. This premier warranty and forward replacement removes maintenance hassles!
  4. Single Vendor
    Experience the ease of having BlueJeans as the sole vendor responsible for sales, distribution and support. We take the first call throughout the lifetime of the relationship.
  5. Peace of Mind, Guaranteed
    The subscription model lets you eliminate hardware lock-in. Remove the administrative overhead that typically comes with maintaining hardware, by providing advanced hardware replacement and firmware and software updates free of charge. Furthermore, equipment refreshes means you’ll always have the latest technology.

With a renewed focus on the internal people and processes, rather than the purchasing and maintenance of hardware, IT will be able to streamline operations and connect users and devices as quickly and simply as possible to allow them to achieve their business goals.

Furthermore, BlueJeans’ premier one-touch meeting join and seamless calendar integrations, paired with Dolby's collaboration features like intelligent scene framing, voice placement and whiteboard view, allows teams to be more productive whether working remotely or in the office.
