The way we work has changed drastically in the last decade. We operate in a world where the office literally fits on your mobile device. No matter where you are, you have access to everything you would need to go about the business day.
At Blue Jeans Network we continually strive to improve our service with new features and capabilities. On Tuesdays, our Sales Engineering team is going to talk about a different tip to get you better acquainted with the service and to get the most out of your meetings. For this installment, they'll walk you through the Blue Jeans Outlook add-in.
I just sent you a video meeting invite.. Why oh, why, are you dialing in by audio? This thought kept running through my head this past week during my online meetings with external vendors. In typical Blue Jeans fashion, I always want to share how easy and seamless the video conferencing experience can be. Despite my better efforts, I realized that some users are just more accustomed to using an audio bridge.

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).
Today, we’re thrilled to announce the official launch of the Blue Jeans service in Australia. We’re no stranger to the land down under; in fact, Australia is our sixth largest market, consuming over one million video call minutes, by 60,000 participants from 169 companies. One of those companies is 99Designs, a design firm with offices in Melbourne, San Francisco, Berlin, Paris and Brazil. Check out the full press release here.
The big question among Bay Area commuters this week has been how to get around the Bay Bridge closure. Do you go further north and cross Golden Gate, or perhaps go further south to one of the smaller bridges? Bay Area commuters, we feel your pain, especially with the recent Bart Strike. One option that we’re always happy to tout at Blue Jeans is WFH, working from home.
Hopefully you have had a great summer! Maybe you’ve traveled somewhere tropical, climbed Machu Picchu or camped along the beach. Whatever it is, hopefully you’ve enjoyed a little R&R! The Blue Jeans team enjoyed the summer by celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our service, the launch of Blue Jeans 2.0, the unveiling of a fun new company video and previewing a new video sharing feature.
Do you act the same on a video meeting as when you’re on an audio call? Probably not. We’re all guilty of multi-tasking while on a conference call. But that's because we aren't able to literally see what's going on in the meeting. The beauty of video is that it empowers every person to be an active and engaged participant.
