Blue Jeans has completed its LinkedIn (News - Alert) integration, making it easier than ever for professionals to communicate through its cloud video conferencing services. While the integration was announced a while back, it has officially launched, and is already looking good.
The LinkedIn integration is now available, so Blue Jeans users can sign up and log into meetings with their LinkedIn credentials. This will make their LinkedIn information, such as a personal photo and a professional title, available to other users to see and add to their profile.
Not only will this make it easier for users to set up their own profiles, but it’ll be convenient for those they chat with as well. By linking directly to one’s LinkedIn profile, connecting and networking on videoconferences is simple. This is convenient for all users, providing a more integrated experience and better connection than ever before.
"Both Blue Jeans and LinkedIn are about building better connections between people," says Stu Aaron, CCO at Blue Jeans Network. "When you combine Blue Jeans' face-to-face video experience with the information and context available through LinkedIn you create an even more personal and effective meeting. Today’s integration with LinkedIn is a natural progression in our mission to incorporate Blue Jeans video conferencing capabilities with leading business applications and social enterprise services. It builds upon the prior work we’ve done with Salesforce.com (News - Alert), and Facebook."
As videoconferencing becomes more common, as well as more desirable, there will be an even greater demand for services that are both high quality and convenient. Blue Jeans has done well to make videoconferencing as easy and convenient for users as possible, and the LinkedIn integration makes it even more so.
Social media integration has become the new way to create profiles and log in for many websites, and LinkedIn is the social networking site of choice for business professionals, making this a natural decision. It’s a smart choice for Blue Jeans, one that’s sure to prove beneficial for the company and its customers.
