InterCall and Blue Jeans Network Connect to Redefine Business Collaboration
November 13, 2013 @ 09:59 AM | By Dennis Collins

We are pleased to announce an exciting new offering for InterCall customers. We have worked with our partners at BlueJeans Network to deliver an integrated solution that makes it easy to add video conferencing and enhanced call controls to everyday InterCall Reservationless-Plus audio conferences. By merging audio and video, we have created a global collaboration platform that makes meetings easier to schedule, join and experience regardless of whether people connect from traditional phone lines, mobile devices or by video.

As Rob Bellmar, our senior vice president of conferencing and collaboration says, “People are interested in using video to improve collaboration, and they want a simpler way to connect. Integrating our Reservationless-Plus and the Blue Jeans services gives hosts a simple way to start meetings on-the-fly, while participants can easily click-to-join from anywhere on any device, and experience the high quality audio and video conferencing that they expect.”

Among the benefits of the new InterCall and Blue Jeans integration:

  • Simple scheduling with one tool for video and audio meetings
  • One common code, one meeting invitation and multiple ways to join
  • Additional in-meeting controls, such as a list of participants, active talkers and mute/un-mute capabilities
  • High-quality voice for both audio-only and video attendees

According to MIT Sloan Management Review, 75 percent of all businesses will use collaboration technology tools in 2013 and nearly 90 percent will employ them by 2015. Studies prove that face-to-face video helps people meaningfully connect, reducing hostility, fostering empathy and improving communication.
