BlueJeans signs first ever Australian distributor deal

01 Mar 2017

BlueJeans, a global cloud-based video communication services provider, today announced its first Australian distributor appointment – VExpress.

The partnership will effectively bolster VExpress’ current video communications offering with BlueJeans’ suite of solutions, including Primetime, onVideo, onSocial and the recently launched Huddle Rooms.

Asia Pacific (APAC) managing director at BlueJeans, James Brennan says the appointment of VExpress is a milestone in the local growth strategy, and a confirmation of the commitment to expand into new channels, making it easier that ever for Australian resellers to offer BlueJeans products.

“The appointment of VExpress as our first Australian distributor is our dedication to a strong focus on customer service, channel enablement, pre & post sales support and a flexible and innovative approach to meeting the needs of the channel,” Brennan says.

“The needs of the modern workplace are constantly evolving, so it’s critical for BlueJeans to have partners like VExpress who can meet our customers’ complete business needs with transformative solutions today and into the future.”

General manager at VExpress, David McEwen says the agreement gives partners and resellers the benefit of expert support in an easy-to-use, secure, cloud-based service.

“BlueJeans offers a cloud product that is not only simple to use, but the quality of the service is second to none,” McEwen says.

“The global leader in video communications has demonstrated excellent support and service to our resellers and distributors. We have already seen an impressive amount of interest and demand for BlueJeans solutions across our reseller community, so we are excited about the partnership’s huge potential.”

According to BlueJeans, they will complement the existing reseller portfolios of communication solutions, making it the ideal fit for partners that are transitioning to a recurring revenue and cloud model.

BlueJeans has nearly 5,000 customers and 25 million participants around the globe, making up for around one billion minutes of face-to-face interaction per year.
