"Great tool - Room/Potential to the best"

What do you like best?

Ease of use is what I like the best. You can easily set up or join a meeting with a click of a button. I would like it even more if I there was a way to integrate it with web browsers. For example, if I could use it in one of my chrome tab it would have been much more beneficial.

What do you dislike?

There is no much I dislike, but I wish the mobile app was much easier to work with. Particularly the way you could ask host questions.In the mobile app, usually I would like to participate in the calls that I cannot really join using a computer or laptop, for example when driving and I would need to join a croup call or let's say I am outside and would like to benefit from joining a meeting without having to use my laptop.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

People who tend to use it definitely need to go through the tutorials to get the most out of it. If something does not make sense, definitely get in touch with the customer support representatives. They are the golden starts of the company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have group meetings regularly. We use it for group conference calls. I like the fact that you can record videos of the calls. That helps a lot for sharing and reviewing the content of the calls. Using other tools, we would have to a =use a thridparty screen capturing software.

"BlueJeans: A Great Solution For Video Conferencing "

What do you like best?

BlueJeans is very easy to use and great for large office spaces. It is easy to log in and on calls with either the BlueJeans link or with the remote control.

What do you dislike?

There is really nothing that I dislike about BlueJeans. Sometimes the link does not always connect with our AV system but it is easy enough to login or call in.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think that it is a great product and I would highly recommend it to any business with employees in different offices or different areas.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this to video conference with our different offices and clients. It is a great way to collaborate with our different offices. The video is always clear and the sound is great. I think that it makes it feel like you are right there with your coworkers and clients to make necessary decisions for the business. I also think that it is great that you can present a slide deck or share your screen when applicable so that everyone is looped into the mix.

What Webinar solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Product"

What do you like best?

How easy it is to set up an event and how little time it takes.

What do you dislike?

It was a little confusing in the beginning on the difference between scheduling an event and scheduling a meeting, as well as the different roles of the moderator and presenter. It would have been nice to been provided a 'white sheet' on how to and the differences.

I understand the need for the role of the moderator, however, it would be nice if this was an optional role for an event.

I also wish you could edit the event/meeting title after it has been created. This has caused a few issues in the past as meeting/training event titles have been altered.

I have also ran into issues trying to upload a video to play during an event so more information on how to do that would be appreciated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product that is easy to use to connect people from all over.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to seamlessly conduct meetings with participants here at our headquarters and in our field locations states away. This has been very beneficial to our organization.

"Great UI, but lacking some basic requirements "

What do you like best?

The look and feel of BlueJeans Events is amazing. It's intuitive, and that's something our customers definitely need. It's quick to launch and not cumbersome.

I love that the audio and video are combined. Previously, we had a separate phone number for our WebEx audio. It's very nice that people can now use their computer audio to listen to the presentation. I also like that the audio can be muted for all attendees, but wish we could unmute them as well (see below).

What do you dislike?

We have several moderators on our team and it's frustrating that, if one person creates an event, no one else can access the reports, recordings, or see a list of future courses.

It would also be helpful if we could unmute attendees if they have questions. Yes, they can type questions into the Q&A section, but it's easier to unmute everyone and let them clarify what they're asking verbally.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When creating an event, make sure you have more than one moderator. If the current moderator gets sick, and no one else is assigned that role, you're not going to be able to launch the event.

Know that there is a sizable lag time. Be sure to account for those 20 seconds when asking if anyone has any questions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have several Instructor-Led Trainings every week to help our customers use our software. Our customers sometimes have limited technical knowledge, and BlueJeans' great UI has helped mitigate a lot of issues we used to see with WebEx, such as people not being able to log in, or having issues with the audio.

"Finally a webinar tool that works "

What do you like best?

In general the comms quality is good and it interoperates very well with Lifesize and Huawei in room equipment -so great picture and sound

What do you dislike?

There are two apps on Mac and the Bluejeans Prime Events insists on using the old one.

Also, the Prime Events option doesn't hide the name of the attendee asking questions to panelist, quite annoying.

Finally, there's no usage stats for views/downloads.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In general look at Zoom as well, personally I find BlueJeans easier to use, more stable but it has less features. The killer thing is the hardware integrations (with in room systems such as LifeSize and Huawei) though, which I haven't tested for other platforms than BlueJeans.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm running influencer webinars with video, allowing us to give a more personal feel to webinars.

"BlueJeans - It's what you want it to do"

What do you like best?

The software and web platforms are very stable. There is no head-scratching and troubleshooting involved when trying to join a meeting. It is very quick and responsive. There is no lag time in joining a meeting.

The sound and video quality is superb.

What do you dislike?

The command center software could be more streamlined as the UI is a bit busy. I often find myself fumbling with the menu options and drop-downs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is very easy to join especially with the Google Calendar integrations. More often that not, all I have to do is click a link, and the software will launch and join my meeting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BlueJeans is being used across our entire organization. It allows our employees to collaborate without being physically present. We use it primarily for meetings, but also have used it's large presentation-type broadcasts. It is an essential tool for our company because we have several offices across the world. We also have several home-based employees, which makes BlueJeans very useful.

"The perfect solution for big events"

What do you like best?

Is the best option we ever found for large events. People is not wasting time on airports anymore. It is simple to use and install also prepare equipment for meetings. Quality cant be better. Do you want your event to be perfect? So don't doubt, use Bluejeans events. Even you can test it before you buy but i assure you teres nothing with this kind of quality as bluejeans

What do you dislike?

Nothing, we were testing some other tools but this is the best option right now and we think Bluejeans is headed in the right direction. That's why we don't change it for any reason, actually we have other products from the company and we are satisfied with all of them

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You wont regret to give it a try

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We usually perform a lot of these meetings with people all over the country, used webinar but has a lot of requirements. People don't have to travel long distances and waste a lot of time

"Blue Jeans Events"

What do you like best?

The number of people that can join in the events. We need to accommodate at least 5000 people and Blue Jeans can fulfill that. It is also easy to moderate from my desk or at the actual meeting.

What do you dislike?

Video Quality. We can never seem to get the full video quality in our broadcasts. It has become frustrating that our broadcasts are only getting somewhere between 360P and 480p video quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great product that will fill your small local meeting needs or your larger event broadcasts. The amount of people it can reach is amazing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Town Hall broadcasts to the entire company, many of which are remote. We average around 4000 individual users. Its amazing that we can broadcast easily to that many people.

"Excellent Service"

What do you like best?

The video and audio fidelity is unmatched by any other service. It is much better than competing solutions and does a great job of meeting our needs. We can easily have 500+ users connect to a meeting without having to worry about anything dropping out. Event link is easy to share and web app is just as reliable and desktop app.

What do you dislike?

I wish the mobile application was a little more intuitive. Wish that the online app allowed you to rearrange your live event dashboard so you can more easily hide things you don't want or need.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have large meetings 250+ and users that are connecting from international locations this is a great solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allowing 100+ users to easily connect to an event with little latency and no down-time.

"BLUE JEANS IS THE BEST PLATFORM FOR MEETING, AND BROADCASTING!"

What do you like best?

I love the price firstly. Secondly, I love the easy design and functions of the platform. Thirdly, I love the fact that I can conduct meetings, webinars, events, and broadcast to Facebook Live.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the scroll bar on the video section was larger. It is barely visible to find.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I strongly recommend you try the Blue Jeans platform. What do you have to loose? You get a free 30 day trial. It is so easy to operate and learn, that you will subscribe before your 30 days expire like I did!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am in the media and entertainment business. Blue Jeans help me handle all aspects of the things I need to do with ease. I can meet with my staff. I can broadcast my entertainment shows and events to Facebook. And, I can hold private meetings for training, auditions and much much more.

"A true leader in Conferencing and Events solutions"

What do you like best?

The look and feel of BlueJeans is immediately intuitive. The interface is clear while still being comprehensive enough to have full functionality. The ability to stream meetings and events to Facebook Live provides an 'easy-in' to promoting your message over social media.

What do you dislike?

Video quality is currently not as high resolution as some others. Will general users notice? Probably not as the video is 720p by default and is very clear even at lower bandwidths, not to men ion that this means that it is very efficient for your internet connection. I understand that there are upgrades to the quality very soon, so this will be an added bonus.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check out with the Dolby HD Voice Hardware if you can. The sound quality using this is by far the best that I have heard from a conferencing system.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used various tools for Webinars, none of which have provided everything that we have needed. Primetime has been a real boost for hosting events. The ability to hold a traditional streaming webinar, with full reporting, chat facility and live polls all in a simple to use interface is fantastic. Add to this the ability to then upgrade streaming viewers to fully interactive participants on the fly and it opens up a lot of possibilities and options for how events are managed and structured.

"Great Tool for large group video events and presentations"

What do you like best?

The data that BlueJeans makes available to you for troubleshooting and resolving issues for end users in the presentations is very valuable to those of use running meetings. The moderator tools and flexibility for users to connect from almost any device is a great feature.

What do you dislike?

The architecture of the product revolves around users getting a buffered feed and at times end users can be about 30 seconds behind the live presentations. This can cause some minor issues when fielding questions from the audience or attendees.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

BlueJeans Product Implementation team is great and can give some good demos and walk you through the product. They are a great resource in evaluating the product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our teams have never been more connected across offices throughout the US.

"great webinar platform"

What do you like best?

it works. easy to use, pretty intuitive and straight forward. I like how attendees, presenters, and moderators have their own links, which gives them their own path into the webinar. This makes it very easy to moderate vs. a bluejeans meeting where everyone is in the same lane.

What do you dislike?

video sharing needs to be improved (playing videos natively from screen sharing). I don't like how expensive this platform is, if I'm hosting a primetime event, the service should start charging you after you've surpassed the threshold of a large meeting count. In our case, its 150 participants. At 151 that's when the charges should start to count. I also don't like not being able to provide registration for a restricted event. We get phone dial ins and have no way of being able to distinguish between an actual employee or someone outside of our enterprise.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

compare and contrast, make sure you truly understand your pricing and limitation. Bluejeans is really good about providing support/testing and event assist. I would avail of these benefits and make sure you are truly successful on the day of your major event, allhands or town halls.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A love hate relationship with BlueJeans Events"

What do you like best?

What I love most about BlueJeans events is the user interface. It's very easy to grasp for both moderators, presenters, and attendees. The Q&A and chat feature is very obvious to attendees and without too many bells and whistles doesn't confuse them on the functionality. Having played with the moderating function for about a couple hours I was able to grasp everything fairly easily.

What do you dislike?

It's cumbersome when it comes to creating similar events. Our company utilized WebEx before making the switch to BlueJeans. It allowed us to create a template of an event and build from that each time we needed an event scheduled. We have about 4 events weekly that are very similar in setup, so having a template feature would do wonders.

One thing I have a love/hate relationship with is that attendees cannot speak during events and promoting everyone to presenter is cumbersome. The ability to be able to mute/unmute our attendees when needed without having to go through the process of promoting them to presenter is a must and is sorely missed from our old software.

Inability to run a single attendance report for all events across a specific date range is baffling. I do save all attendance reports for each event myself, but I need the ability to run a report for the entire year to see how many people registered, attended, or were absent.

Only the creator of the event can access attendance information. This causes a gap in information if the original creator is out on vacation. The other moderators don't know how many attendees registered (if any at all) for the event nor do they have access to their information afterwards to send any necessary follow up.

The lag between moderators/attendees makes for a bad experience on both ends.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some benefits to BlueJeans is the ease of use which helps us as a company and team bring in new people to use it with relative ease.

"Events Platform is $$$$$$$$"

What do you like best?

What's not to like. More robust than competition. Easy access to moderator controls. Ability to promote attendees to presenter is a game changer.

What do you dislike?

While I understand the use case for a different app, user adoption is slow. They still have the ability to join via browser but I would love it if attendees could join via BlueJeans app. Browser requires flash :(.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your homework. This solution is great for our use case, but it may not be for everyone.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Events regularly for global meetings as well as meetings for our larger team. The ability to have a dedicated presenter list but still have the chat interaction is great.

"BlueJeans"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of the interface makes it quite easy to manage and train end-users in its various features.

What do you dislike?

We run in to issues every so often with the MS Outlook plug in disabling itself and users complain about the buttons disappearing from Outlook.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have multiple company events each year that require all office locations to connect to a Blue Jeans event. The software has met our needs for these types of events.

"Good Event Software"

What do you like best?

Bluejeans events makes it easy to publish and publicize events for large groups.

What do you dislike?

It is a little more difficult than I would like to share details of the event with participants. In addition, the share button is a bit complicated, and I often end up reducing the text that it spits out by default.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Excellent if you are looking to engage with event participants during a webinar - allows you to do polls, questions, and also have a live chat.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We hold remote trainings and webinars with BlueJeans events, helping us communicate with students prior to their arrival.

"Seamless and Smooth"

What do you like best?

The functionality of Blue Jeans is superior to other applications we've tried. The ease of presenting and adding content is great. We love the feature of muting all microphones and cameras when needed.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of complexity to being a moderation and adding other presenters. It is just a matter of learning, but we usually have to do a little training before our first run as moderator.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have business-wide events, town hall meetings, all college meetings, and smaller team meetings. We also use Blue Jeans for project development. This is useful because we have a lot of remote employees.

"BlueJeans - Great for Groups"

What do you like best?

I like that BlueJeans is intuitive to use. The features make sense to me. Also, there are customizable settings. For example, I like my meetings to start without the moderator, that way no one is waiting on me to activate the room.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how the BlueJeans recurring meetings work. Whenever I have tried to set one up, it will not sync correctly with Outlook. If I need to make a change to it, I'd need to recreate an entirely new BlueJeans event.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With BlueJeans, we're able to have phone conference meetings with the additional benefit of being able to share your screen. It makes discussions more productive and easier to communicate. We also use BlueJeans for webinar purposes. The invites are easy, as well as the self-sending reminders.

"All Hands Problem Free"

What do you like best?

The moderator interface is supreme. Complete control over all in the meeting, chat for troubleshooting, recording options and the download options of recordings. I use the recordings to edit the meeting and post in our employee enterprise site.

What do you dislike?

Choppy video play over livestream. I usually have to send videos to users ahead of the meeting.

"Very useful interactive features, but can be tricky"

What do you like best?

The features are very useful and provide a lot of ways to interact with participants. The interface is intuitive and it is easy to learn the system.

What do you dislike?

The system can sometimes have issues and it is difficult to troubleshoot. There isn't much support on the website to help when issues arise.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scaling trainings and being able to reach a large audience quickly and easily. Our participants don't have to travel to a training site to still get necessary information and have their questions addressed.

"Solid webinar software"

What do you like best?

We recently tested several webinar platforms and found Bluejeans Events to be an extremely solid one - we already use Bluejeans internally as our virtual meeting platform and liked the ease of transferring knowledge to Bluejeans Events. It's a good looking interface that's simple to use. The meeting video and audio quality is generally high.

What do you dislike?

This software is significantly more expensive than very equivalent or even superior competitors. Given our particular needs, we went in a different direction.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend BlueJeans Events to organizations with a larger budget available for their webinar software - for smaller organizations, there are better options available.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bluejeans Events is solid and fairly reliable; it allowed us to host events with certainty that there wouldn't be major issues.

There can occasionally be some lagginess in the connection, but as technology improves, this will hopefully decrease over time.

It is a very simple system to use. With the right hardware, you can even connect a high quality camera for better video and audio streaming.

"Good overall small imporvements needed "

What do you like best?

Each user has an individual code dedicated to their meeting so its easy to provide to external users. Admin access is very nice and provides a lot of data and controllability on the admin side of things.

What do you dislike?

Bugs can take a little while to resolve. Its hard to package the downloader to redistribute to users.

original reason for going with bluejeans is to have the ability to admin big conferences and monitor meetings to make sure everything is operating as intended. bluejeans makes doing this simple and quick, being able to monitor data of live meetings so that you can see why a certain meeting is having flaky connection or not.

What do you like best?

BlueJeans has a simple interface for videoconference and screensharing, with good audio/video quality. It integrates with room systems well as well as personal devices.

"Exactly what we need and nothing more "

What do you like best?

BlueJeans Events is user-friendly and makes it easy for our team to set up a webinar and to host dozens of teachers at a team for learning events. There enough controls to make it customizable (i.e, Q&A, raising hand, switching between camera views) but not too many that it becomes confusing.

What do you dislike?

It'd be great if a user could be moderator and presenter, rather than have each role sign-in separately. We have to set up a lot of computer/use a lot of different accounts just to set up one webinar.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The largest benefit is being able to reach out to much of our organization at the same time and being able to interact with them.

"Adequate Video Conference Tool"

What do you like best?

It is a simple, effective, click to start video conferencing tool.

What do you dislike?

It is expensive and requires extensive setup. The space-age style discs they require you to use have no discernable added value.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a solid tool, but not worth switching from another vendor that has the same type of features/product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The same ones we realized when we used GoToMeeting and then Zoom. Just in a different format.

"Productive Tool for Webinars"

What do you like best?

I like BlueJeans meetings best, and BlueJeans events a little less.

What do you dislike?

The slide delay for attendees is about 10 seconds, which is extremely long. Can't share an application, only a screen. Chat is difficult to manage, with a separate conversations in a separate tab. Can have multiple presenters for a single slide deck.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't look for option(s) to share control of a slide deck.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webinars for researchers every couple of months.

"Great program!"

What do you like best?

We love the fact that participants come in without being able to use the microphone without being given the permissions. This make large meetings easier.

We have had delays or slow connections at times, usually due to internet connections of our moderators.

"A good solution"

What do you like best?

Overall the quality was pretty good and the video/audio held up strong through most webinars.

We didn't like having to use a different interface than what we were used to with Blue Jeans' regular interface.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the Events interface and dashboard if you are also using Blue Jeans for normal video conferencing. The Events dashboard is different.

"Good streaming service, but expensive"

What do you like best?

The customer support was top notch. We got quick responses from Alphi when service was interrupted, and the demographics report afterward was helpful.

What do you dislike?

The price was pretty high. While the service was good, it made more business sense to broadcast on a free platform like Facebook Live.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to livestream events and get stats on participation. The events were recorded and easily accessible

"Blue Jeans Technology Has Not Kept Up "

What do you like best?

Initially, we really liked that Q&A were well-integrated and aligned with our content.

What do you dislike?

The Blue Jeans platform has been very unstable for us. We decided in early 2018 to stop using the platform to stream content that is uploaded to the Blue Jeans server because the application dashboard that plays the videos glitched.

Recommendations to others considering the product:
