What is most valuable?

The interface is user-friendly and screen sharing is easy to do.

What needs improvement?

If multiple people are part of the meeting and they are in the same room, for example on their laptops, then it will create an echo and the other person may not be audible.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In addition to this solution, we also use Microsoft Teams and Google Meet for video conferencing. I also have experience with Skype and Zoom. Microsoft Teams is similar to Skype, but when you're talking about BlueJeans, it's a bit different. BlueJeans has a more professional look for meetings.

What other advice do I have?

If the echo issue is eventually resolved then I would give BlueJeans a perfect rating. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
