New video conferencing capability enables Salesforce users to collaborate face-to-face
SAN FRANCISCO – SALESFORCE.COM DREAMFORCE – November 18, 2013 — Blue Jeans Network, the global leader in interoperable video collaboration services, today announced it has launched Blue Jeans for Salesforce on salesforce.com’s AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with customers, partners and colleagues in powerful face-to-face communications—anywhere in the world. As an innovative video conferencing service for Salesforce, Blue Jeans makes it easy for Salesforce Chatter users to host and join collaborative video meetings and to screen share presentations, documents, and video clips in real-time. The announcement was made today at salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2013 in San Francisco. Blue Jeans will be in booth #N2102 in the Cloud Expo North.
Blue Jeans for Salesforce is the first implementation of Blue Jeans’ new APIs, empowering partners and customers to integrate high quality, HD video collaboration services from Blue Jeans natively into their own applications. It can be downloaded from the AppExchange starting today.
“Salesforce Chatter and Blue Jeans Network share a common goal to continually advance collaboration through mobile and cloud computing,” said Nasi Jazayeri, EVP and GM, Salesforce Chatter, salesforce.com. “Blue Jeans for Salesforce brings video and rich content collaboration to the Chatter community, making sales, service and marketing more productive than ever.”
Blue Jeans for Salesforce extends Chatter’s powerful collaboration capabilities by adding live video conferencing that brings participants face-to-face. Blue Jeans for Salesforce is tightly integrated, allowing users to quickly and easily initiate video calls to collaborate on sales opportunities, service cases, campaigns and projects—all from within the Chatter feed.
“Texts, emails and phone calls play their roles in the workforce, but anyone will tell you that face-to-face communication is much more meaningful. This partnership brings together two powerful applications to extend the reach and value of Chatter to include rich, real-time video collaboration,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, co-founder and CEO of Blue Jeans Network. “We are excited to provide Chatter users with an easy-to-use, integrated experience. By connecting customers, partners and colleagues in face-to-face meetings, Blue Jeans for Salesforce can help foster stronger relationships, improved communication and bigger ideas.”
