Blue Jeans Network has officially launched in the UK.
This move capitalizes on a rapidly growing presence in the market. The UK already boasts nearly 700 businesses consuming approximately 10 million minutes a year on the Blue Jeans service, making it the second largest market for Blue Jeans behind the US.
The Blue Jeans service boosts collaboration and productivity for businesses of all sizes with a scalable, easy-to-use service for face-to-face video meetings and rich content sharing across the widest range of conference rooms, desktops, and mobile devices.
Blue Jeans is the only solution in the world today that can connect both business and consumer video conferencing tools, including TelePresence, video room systems (H.323), SIP, Skype, Google, Microsoft Lync, browsers, tablets, smartphones and audio callers, into one single meeting. The cloud-based service is used every day by consumers in over 12,000 cities on all seven continents.
As Blue Jeans gains significant market share, the UK and European markets are core to the company’s global growth strategy. The company recently closed a new $US50 million round of venture financing in September to fuel its growth and to expand its presence into key markets.
