Let’s face it- traditional video conferencing can be expensive. And for a small to medium size business, it can be difficult to adopt and maintain video just for that reason.

So today, we’re excited to partner up with Tely Labs to give users an exclusive offer.

At Blue Jeans, we embrace the mobile lifestyle and the idea that a person does not need a traditional laptop to accomplish #AWESOME work. Many of our customers have been embracing mobile work styles and have been waiting for the mobile team to expand our current client set.
To build on the momentum of our Intercall integration, we recently conducted a national survey. The survey revealed that 94% of respondents believe that face-to-face communication improves business relationships. While this statistic doesn’t surprise me as much, it’s interesting that 91% percent have never seen many of the people they work with on a daily or weekly basis.
Cisco Jabber is a desktop client that is capable of voice, video, im, chat, presence, and visual voicemail. Cisco’s acquisition of Tandberg’s allowed them to add the powerful Movi client’s video engine into Jabber.
