Likelihood to Recommend

Deltek WorkBook

My recommendation very much depends on who the colleague is. I would recommend WorkBook if it is an accountant, project manager or someone similar, and if the setup is done within WorkBook and passwords, etc. are being used within WorkBook only. I would tell IT Managers to avoid the application and think twice in terms of access management etc.

Jive

It's definitely worth considering Jive for the type of application we've developed i.e. a central shared repository for all employees to host and discuss information. I can't say I have ever used a superior tool, but they may exist. I'm just not sure I would want to use it exclusively for file hosting, though. It does integrate with various other tools, so perhaps it would be fine if used in conjunction with another tool for that purpose.

Cons

Deltek WorkBook

There are always external factors that can impact this decision but currently, the Jive platform is maintaining its lead in the market place in this area. If the innovation in this space by Jive continues, then this number will remain high. Integration with other systems and adaptability to changes in the market or in client needs will also make this decision hard to predict more then 6 months into the future

It was harder to use that expected. The admin needs to be code savvy to truly customize the system. And users need to trained on the system and the setup. Trainings and monitoring need to continue to enforce use.

Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze.

Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.

They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.

Jive online training is there. It is OK/average. I feel some other companies are doing better. It is not a piece that is required to have a successfully implementation, but it could be useful to improve it

If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.

Jive

Jive and IBM/HCL Connections have very similar features, but Jive has a much much better UI/UX compared to IBM/HCL Connections (which is horrendous). The usability factor alone was enough to tip the choice in Jive's favor. When compared with Atlassian Confluence, it came down to a toss-up between target user audience. Out of the box, Jive is more tailored to ordinary users that may not be tech-savvy, while Confluence being highly customizable and extensible, demands more from its users.

Return on Investment

Deltek WorkBook

  • WorkBook is one of the cheaper solutions on the market, which, in the long term, gives a great ROI.
  • We have spent a lot of time on support which is a negative impact.
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jive

  • Makes us seem bigger than we are.
  • Makes it so the person that manages this part of the business can go on vacation and can pass on these duties to other people when he is gone.
  • Helped us fulfill MSA requirements from our clients to have phone support. Couldn’t have closed some of our deals without it.
