Cross-platform video conferencing company Blue Jeans Network announced today that it will integrate with Salesforce.com.
Blue Jeans developed a cloud-hosting video conference service that makes it possible for people using different video conferencing and telepresence systems to talk to each other. So far it works with products from Cisco, Polycom, LifeSize and others, as well as software systems, such as Skype, Microsoft Lync, and Google Video Chat. The new integration will bring video conferencing directly into the Salesforce.com application so that users don’t have to switch into another application to video conference on any of the supported systems.
Blue Jeans Network was founded by Krish Ramakrishnan who previously sold two companies to Cisco (Internet Junction and TopSpin). The company just raised a $25 million Series C round earlier this summer.
It’s off to a good start — reference customers include: Facebook, Foursquare, Stanford University, and MIT.
At Blue Jeans Network, their mission is to make video communications as easy and pervasive as audio communications, enabling more effective collaboration at work, at home, and on the road. Their cloud-based conferencing service enables people to connect with each other any time, any place, and from practically any device.
