Blue Jeans Network, a provider of interoperable video conferencing services, has partnered with InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corp. and the world's largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, in a deal that will allow InterCall to offer the Blue Jeans service to its customers worldwide, supplementing InterCall’s portfolio of audio and Web conferencing services with Blue Jeans’ video conferencing.
Through this partnership with Blue Jeans Network, InterCall allows users to connect to meetings via services such as Cisco, Google, Microsoft Lync, Polycom, and Skype, regardless of the hosting platform. The service is cloud-based, and customers familiar with InterCall’s Reservationless-Plus audio conferencing platform will find it just as accessible and easy to use.
“This new service eliminates the challenges that often make video conferencing difficult,” said Robert Bellmar, Senior Vice President of Conferencing and Collaboration for InterCall. “By allowing users to join a meeting from various devices and platforms, video conferencing is now a more viable meeting choice than ever before.”
“Partnering with InterCall allows us to serve more customers who are in need of easy-to-use and accessible video conferencing solutions,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, CEO of Blue Jeans Network. “Since the Blue Jeans conferencing service is cloud-based, there is no new hardware to deploy or software to download. A few clicks is all it takes to schedule, host, join and run meetings.”
