Overall Satisfaction

I work on multiple Jive projects - all have been global and large organisations, up to 200,000 employees, where all departments use it. Typical benefits are productivity gains, expertise location, enhanced collaboration, increased employee satisfaction, reduced time to market, innovation and increased competitive edge.
  • Increased collaboration
  • Silo busting
  • Increased Productivity
  • Time saved
  • Competitive edge
  • Listening to customers - e.g. bring back Ryan Rutan's 'grey' plugins or make them core!
  • Analytics
  • Customer support
  • Get less US centric
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced time to market
  • Innovation
  • MS SharePoint,IBM Connections,Lithium,cisco
It's the market leader in Gartner's magic quadrant and the most innovative and easy to use platform.
All the Jive projects I've worked on have renewed their use of Jive.
It works best in large matrix companies. It's not a system of record and integration with such systems, e.g. SharePoint could be easier
