Workplace productivity via robust meeting insights for everyone
The collaboration market has expanded over the past decade and connected millions of teams across a scattered workforce. According to Markets and Markets, the Collaboration market is slated for further growth and expected to reach $48 billion in revenue by 2024. BlueJeans’ Chief Product Manager, Guillaume Vives, told me they see a trend of vendors focusing on the number of meetings they enable, rather than the quality of those meetings:
“Too often, Collaboration software vendors focus on enabling more meetings”
He continued, BlueJeans believes this to be the wrong approach to Collaboration. As such, they recently surveyed 700 professionals and found that 67 percent of experts said they have more weekly meetings than they used to. One-third of respondents even felt their weekly meetings were a ‘waste of time.’ These findings have massive economic implications, to the tune of more than $400 billion companies spend each year on ‘meeting waste,’ according to BlueJeans.
