8x8 Virtual Office Enterprise Suite

Some of the best scenarios are working remotely. It really allows you to get everything you need out of an office phone right from your computer/cell without any need for hardware. It's not great when you've already plugged in a dialer of some sort, or software like Outreach.io that has some overlap in features (click to dial, especially).

Jive Hosted VoIP

I would recommend Jive for any SMB organization as it makes them look larger than they are and allows for powerful tools at a reasonable price. Small business especially can benefit from its ability to route calls in multiple ways allowing them to add diversity in their call tree and allow less users to act like more users.
Large business can also benefit from Jive simply by virtue of the system being easy to use. In a large org, the call tree can be complicated. Jive's easy to use drag and drop interface allows for ease of implementation by large org's making setup of the PBX a snap.

  • It has a chat feature for Jive users that you can use to communicate if you are on another call
  • The conference calling feature is very easy to use
  • The program is very easy to use and is user-friendly

Cons

  • Integration with Insidesales/Salesforce/Outreach/etc.
  • RAM usage could be lower
  • Cross platform?
  • The devices you pair with Jive sometimes don't work
  • The UI freezes sometimes and requires the computer to be restarted
  • It is missing the ability to call directly from email signatures, so you can't easily just click on the number and it re-route to XLIte

I think Jive still has a potential to improve. We really like it in out company.

Alternatives Considered

I had no control over this but we are using 8x8 virtual office enterprise suite to get some of the functionality, mostly click to dial and contact handling. It's not exactly a competitor, but if you're looking for an easy way to utilize your company phone system remotely, I've had a great experience, including working from home for an entire month on it.
We initially looked at Skype for business as it seemed to be the most popular use for many companies. However, it did not fit in out budget and we were looking for something right for our team. There are some collaboration things that are available in Skype that we don't really need at this point.

Return on Investment

  • I've reached more leads and contacts than before because I can text to set appointments
  • Jive allows us to increase our customer service and support
  • Jive sometimes does waste a lot of setup time for those users who have difficulty connecting devices
  • Jive increases productivity amongst the teams in our company
