Overall Satisfaction with BlueJeans

In our organization, we use BlueJeans for business meetings, small group interaction, and for long-distance conference calls. Our leadership teams within our organization that includes persons from other locations (states) are the more frequent users. I have used the program to complete assignments with college students at the seminary. Easy access to online conferencing is a convenience for volunteers who work full-time jobs and eliminates travel for participants that live long distances.
  • BlueJeans has created a software that is easy to operate for people that are not tech savvy.
  • The ability to record meetings is a plus for our organization when team members are absent.
  • Screen sharing is user-friendly and the quality of the transmission is very good.
  • BlueJeans could improve on the functionality of using other apps on their platform such as uploading PDFs and interacting with the material (I could be an amateur).
  • There could always be improvement on screen quality.
  • Sharing the screen with other individuals contributing to the development of material is useful for college students.
  • BlueJeans has led to an increase in meetings with minimal cost.
  • We are able to recruit more people to participate in spite of long distance.
  • We definitely save on travel and expenses.
I have recently used Skype, and professionally we used Blackboard and I used Google Docs scholastically. Although I am not as familiar with Skype or what benefits they have, it was a successful conference. Blackboard seemed to integrate work better with the need to use documents, but Google Ddocs seems to be the best software for collaborative assignments.
I rate BlueJeans higher because it does not necessarily have one strong suit, but appears to do many things well. For instance, I enjoy the collaborative effort that Google Docs brings but they have no conferencing component. Keep in mind that I am not familiar with all the advantages BlueJeans has to offer.
Google Docs and Calendar have worked well for me when needing to interphase with my calendar. However, I intend to do a bit more search on what BlueJeans has to offer and whether or not it might be more compatible with my apps and the software I am currently using.
I find that BlueJeans is well suited for situations of long distance training and conferencing. However, if there is lots of information and documents to be shared with the participants, I think it is a bit more difficult due to the time constraints of covering multiple documents in detail.
