Why Blue Jeans
TWith offices around the world, SAGE was using a mixture of Skype, WebEx, VOIP phones and Polycom Room systems in 25 different conference rooms to communicate. They were looking for a single solution that allowed employees to collaborate with each other and external partners without making their investment in room system hardware obsolete.
SAGE trialed the Blue Jeans service with an alpha test to a small group of users before doing a global rollout to the broader organization. Blue Jeans now allows SAGE employees to reap the benefits of face-to-face communication on any device no matter where they are around the world.
