We also use Skype to communicate in our organization. They are both useful for organizational communication. The good thing is in Jive, you will have your own personal timeline. Jive also has a newsfeed or timeline that you can browse where you can see the latest updates from your coworkers and friends in the organization.

Jive provided phone support which can be useful in case of emergency. Jive's initial pricing was free which helped jumpstart the process. It also provided JIRA integration which we needed for certain teams. Jive also had Zendesk integration which was useful for support teams to coordinate with our company's Zendesk instance.

I was not involved in the decision to implement Jive versus competitors. My presumption is that the feature set at the time was attractive compared to options like SharePoint. Useful to note that SharePoint seems to have closed the gap in recent years.

We had a Google phone number set up before and Jive was a lot better option than that. It is more consistent and can be configured much easier and with more advanced settings. Additionally, based on the pricing as well as working with the rep on our account, it was a perfect option for us.

I honestly don't recall what we briefly used before Jive - it wasn't good and didn't last long. I think it was under-utilized because you couldn't really do a whole lot with it. Jive does pretty much everything we need it to do, so for that reason alone, Jive is the superior tool.

We found that Jive had integrations with the existing IT infrastructure/tools which was nicely aligned with our strategy of playing nice with the existing ecosystem, rather than compete against it. Jive uses a technology stack that is well known by our organisation (java/spring/tomcat/SQL) and has a nice framework for customisations (plugins, add-ons).

I did not make the decision to implement Jive. There is a collaboration tool in Salesforce. However, Jive was picked because it was a good quality price ratio tool. We have over 5K users and I believe the objective is to go to 10K users.

Without getting into specifics, Jive is relatively strong in terms of more 'ready to deploy' business solutions that require less overhead on the client organization side in terms of IT infrastructure, operational support and ongoing administration and maintenance. While some of the flexibility to customize is restricted compared to a full 'development platform' where similar features may exist - but Jive is an expert at collaboration and social business - so if you are willing to be open to new ways of working, you reap a disproportionate positive benefit in quality of software, time to delver and ongoing IT maintenance costs.

I think Jive is a very unique platform in that it is very user intuitive, and acts just like the social networks we've all grown to love and used to. I think it's a great way for the team in disparate locations to stay in touch, and a great way for management to monitor progress of projects.

Sharepoint:
Sharepoint locks you into a box, but at least most MS Office products are in that box and work well together. Sharepoint tended to be very "clunky" when used, but it covers the basics of collaboration even if it could be difficult to use. I can't speak from an Admin perspective, but from a user side it fulfilled its purpose.

Salesforce Communities/Chatter - I include this because if everyone is onboard with using Salesforce, Chatter and Communities can be a solid platform choice for collaboration. Usually business data is in Salesforce already, so having conversations and collaboration around the specific business information is extremely helpful. Being an administrator, I viewed the administration of Salesforce to be complex at times, but quickly resolved.

My choice by order of preference would be:
1. Salesforce
2. Jive
3. Sharepoint

Compared to MS SharePoint community administration, I'm much more comfortable with Jive administration tools. The Jive user interface is more pleasing and easily adaptable with readymade widgets. The navigation (both top level and within a social group or community) is made easier with standard tabs and standard content types.
