Verizon Business announced that BlueJeans by Verizon, which provides secure video collaboration and large interactive events for hybrid ways of work, has been positioned by innovative research firm Metrigy as a Top Provider for meeting apps. The MetriStar Top Provider Award delineation exemplifies BlueJeans’ commitment to providing a frictionless and immersive, any place, any device meeting experience for clients that drives engagement.
Why was BlueJeans positioned as top provider?
Recognising tech providers whose clients achieved high business success and achieved above-average client sentiment ratings, the MetriStar Top Provider Awards found that firms use the BlueJeans meeting application to conduct virtual meetings with state-of-the-art voice and video quality, combined with productivity features to improve meeting experiences.
“Metrigy’s Workplace Collaboration 2022 MetriStar awards are based on how customers rate their providers, and quantitative metrics correlating the use of a provider’s app with measurable business success,” said Irwin Lazar, President and Principal Analyst at Metrigy.
“In addition to having high customer ratings, BlueJeans customers saw a 48% increase in revenue, 51% cost savings, 25% reduction in employee turnover, and a 41% improvement in employee productivity after their deployment of the app,” Lazar further commented.
BlueJeans’ top performing areas
The comprehensive report goes on to highlight BlueJeans’ top-performing areas, including voice and video quality, technical features of the platform, response time to problems or questions, reliability of the platform, and ease of use. According to the findings of a research study, BlueJeans’ customers include some of the largest businesses in the world.
BlueJeans has consistently delivered innovative features like background noise cancellation, spatial audio, and tools to enable meeting participants to easily capture notes and highlight key meeting points. Backed by the network and services capabilities of its parent company, Verizon, BlueJeans delivers a meeting app experience that achieved high customer sentiment ratings and that its customers are using to deliver measurable business success.
What were the executive’s thoughts on the recognition?
“At BlueJeans, innovation is in our DNA. But it’s no longer just about tech. It’s about the people, the experiences,” said Chris Lewter, VP & General Manager, BlueJeans by Verizon.
“We’re looking beyond ‘just meeting’ to how we can deliver a secure, reliable and scalable set of video solutions designed to power collaboration, boost audience engagement, and ensure business continuity in the era of hybrid work. Today’s award proves we’re on the right track.”
