Let’s face it, the world of work has changed and many collaboration tools have not kept up. Traditional video conferencing systems, we’re looking at you. You’re never quite sure if the technology will work when you need it to, then you have to rope in the IT guys and you spend even more time troubleshooting than actually meeting.

Our investors at Battery Ventures who led our latest round of funding know the pain of traditional video conferencing all too well. And so they got together to make a short video to show exactly what they’d really like to do with all that clunky video conferencing hardware if a bat and an open field were nearby... (Office Space fans- this one’s for you).

Check out the video and share with anyone who secretly wishes they could do this.

We're excited to welcome new investors to the Blue Jeans team, and are thrilled to build upon the new capital that will be used to add fuel to the fire. We're investing in our platform to continually bring the best of our service to our customers. Apart from our Mountain View, CA headquarters, we now have US sales offices in Orange County, Chicago, Atlanta and most recently, San Francisco. Earlier this week we officially launched in Australia and look to further our international expansion very soon. 

Stay tuned for more from Blue Jeans Network; we’re just getting started.
