  • 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.

  • Easier to find information about internal initiatives.
  • Useful for storing content in a shared repository and not on local computers.
  • The notifications system of Jive has prevented errors in executing company policy, based on alerts from Jive to flag new content.

Jive talkin' (sorry)

Return on Investment

  • The effects have been mostly positive as we did not previously have a company-wide tool of this type available to all employees. That's not necessarily specific to Jive as we could have used any tool, but Jive is largely up to the job.
  • The only negative impact has been an occasional poor use of the tool, which has not had the desired effect of a more productive workforce.
  • The ability to share information with third parties outside the company on a limited basis is a plus for collaboration with partners.

My Jive Review

Return on Investment

  • reduce email traffic
  • reduce amount of files/documents scattered & lost across shared drives
  • increased discovery, awareness and interaction of historically more separated individuals & team functions across the organisation
  • from an IT perspective, we've benefited from improved IT operations (e.g. troubleshooting info shared and easily searched/found with all team members - such that even junior team members can solve technical problems outside of business hours, lessening the burden for standby/call-in for more senior team members)

Return on Investment

  • Our phone system runs perfectly due to their awesome customer service. We are able to rely on all the different features that they offer in order to make the experience here are Wеb2win more professional and enjoyable.
  • Jive gives our team a space to collaborate without clogging up our email inboxes. Instead of sending emails to a couple different listserves and having to dig to find certain threads, we can migrate some of those discussions to Jive posts. Similarly, Jive is a space for discussions that falls outside of our normal workflow.

  • It's expensive to use as a SaaS solution
  • Had a great adoption rate
  • Where a buyer is looking for a dedicated/single platform in this market, Jive is often the leading choice.

Jive review from a multinational chemical company

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Return on Investment

  • Very hard to get concrete ROI numbers... same for Salesforce or any other tools.
  • Overall positive impact, it trained people to work differently and collaborate. Some people work more efficiently. People need to want the change to get all the benefits from it.
  • The only negative thing I can see is the complexity that those tools bring to the organization. Those tools are very user friendly and people underestimate a lot of things. It is a big mistake. These tools need a serious project team to implement. In some companies, the collaboration topic is a big mess, and so it is frequent that users have to use Jive, Google docs and some others tools. It can be confusing and not productive in the end.

Return on Investment

  • Saves time and effort to completion of deliverables (increases productivity or profit as a result)
  • Increased speed and accuracy related to getting answers to questions
  • General increase in openness and access to people and information - creates opportunities for sharing and networking that did not exist before - adding transparency to the organization is a big plus.

Best features of social media, collaboration, content sorting and searching ALL IN ONE - Jive box of goodness!

Return on Investment

  • Cannot speak for my company but it clearly had the same impact Facebook had on the outside world. It allowed everyone in all of the corners of the company to have a voice, to rate content and comment on existent content, to collaborate better with similar interest users and to develop professionally by better having visibility in what opportunities, classes, seminars are out there.
  • It is NOT SharePoint and SharePoint is NOT Jive! They are different and they should be! There are features that are on the wish list for Jive to mimic from SharePoint and that is fine but the difference is clear and SharePoint will never be Jive in terms of ease of built, usability or collaboration!
