Jive Overview

Jive-n provides an online collaboration space to share knowledge and documents, communicate with coworkers and search and find relevant content, news and people within the company. Users can set up department specific portals so that each team have access to their own news, resources and content.

Communication tools include a searchable employee directory to locate people by expertise, skill and reputation. Jive-n provides the ability to create blog posts to share knowledge. Users can see how many people have read a blog post, as well as how many people have viewed an announcement, and who has shared on the information. Jive-n helps users to understand how well teams are communicating, see if messages have reached their target audience, and if they have had the desired effect.

Further enterprise social networking tools offered by Jive-n include live activity streams, groups and discussions. Use Jive-n to assign tasks to coordinate with documents, groups and discussions. See all project information from one place, including stakeholders, key assets and deadlines.

Real-time communication tools allow users to edit and read documents at the same time, as well as see who's viewing the same document in that moment. Users can chat with online users, invite people into a private discussion, and then turn this discussion into a sharable document.

Jive - Work in Progress

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2018/06/27
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

Pros

Jive offers our firm an easy and convenient means of communication, documentation, and support. The platform has a lot of different features for page setups.

Cons

It does require a bit of a learning curve to put the website together. It does also require some thought on the creator's behalf as to how to provide easy access to the users.

Decent but needs newer, more exciting features

Pros

Decent features and functionality and easy to use IF you know how to code. Good pricing and nice that they now have a mobile version that works well - many other intranet software platforms do not have mobile capabilities.

Cons

The product leans too much on users' ability to code HTML/CSS. To make your intranet pages pop and look professional, it shouldn't require jumping through so many hoops. They should have more responsive widgets built into the platform because the front-end usually ends up being well organized but a bit one dimensional. Would be nice if it were set up similarly to Wordpress.

Pros

Many features. Great place to keep up to date info. Our department has a very organized space full of great resources that we can direct employees to.

Cons

outages are very inconvenient. New users have trouble finding things. I still don't know the difference between a space, a place and a group

I am CEO (owner) of a creative solutions development and process management company. Our primary phone service is hand held. JIVE provides continuity in our professional communications providing consistent client communication 24 x 7.

Pros

Quick and easy contract (service) purchase and install. Reasonable pricing cost. Multiple phone equipment options (purchased separately with Jive) for multiple office locations. Desktop equipment is excellent with perfect connectivity and sound quality. Any questions we have raised are answered professionally and quickly.

Cons

It seems odd to have desktop phones after 100 percent service via individual hand held phones. JIVE, however, solves that issue.
