Overall Satisfaction with Jive Team Collaboration

It is absolutely essential to the business processes in my company. We use it for all collaboration from internal discussions to working with clients in externally-facing groups. It is simple and intuitive to use, yet is a very rich platform with tons of functionality. Because we drink our own champagne here, it is easy to show our clients how Jive can change how they work daily.
  • Search -- be able to quickly find anything that you have access to
  • Work out loud -- share your knowledge and content instead of hoarding it on your desktop or in an ugly email chain
  • User-centric -- Jive puts the power in the users instead of the admins. There is of course some admin control, but the users shape how the Jive instance is used and can quickly collaborate instead of relying on an IT ticket.
  • Better integration with other tools such as Jira
  • Expand the very useful Jive for Office and Outlook to work with Mac operating systems
  • Give more options for theming/branding in their external-facing Cloud environments
  • Increase employee efficiency
  • Quicker access to corporate knowledge
  • Much quicker collaboration on building SOWs and WBSs
Jive works more with how people actually work and not how admins think that people should work. For example, relying on a folksonomy of tagging instead of a restricted taxonomy is far more practical with how users actually search for content. By putting the power to the users, Jive allows the site to keep up with quickly changing companies and yet still be tailored to their culture and objectives.
It is by far the leader in Social Collaboration platforms
