Blue Jeans targets U.S. with Ingram

Blue Jeans Network has announced a U.S. distribution agreement with Ingram Micro which extends the relationship after successfully selling together in Asia Pacific and EMEA for the past year. The deal will allow a comprehensive network of U.S. channel partners to build meeting solutions for any business for a measurable and secure increase in productivity and collaboration.

“BlueJeans is a cloud-native meetings platform and a natural fit within our growing unified communications and collaboration portfolio,” said Jeff Yelton, Executive Director, Ingram Micro. “Demand for intelligent workplaces is building among businesses of all sizes, and we’re excited to extend our relationship with BlueJeans and expand our U.S. portfolio to include BlueJean’s one-touch video, audio and web conferencing solutions.”

BlueJeans also announced that channel industry executive, Barry Ruditsky, joined the company as SVP, Global Channels. Ruditsky spent nearly 11 years at EMC where he managed indirect sales including OEM, resellers and channel partners with a global sales organisation.

“There is a terrific market opportunity for BlueJeans as we continue to work alongside the industry’s best partners, including Ingram Micro,” said Ruditsky. “Enterprise companies in every market segment are fully aware of the impact that meeting and collaboration solutions like BlueJeans have on the morale, engagement and bottom line of the business. There is literally an endless runway for us to grow with our partner community.”
