Jive Software makes a Facebook style social network for businesses where employees and their bosses can communicate with one another within a protected environment. Make no mistake, it is not a social media, it is a serious business tool. It enables communication between employees; communicate with business partners and customers. Jive Engage (formally known as Clearspace and subsequently Jive SBS) combines community software, collaboration software, social networking software and social media monitoring into one product. Intentions are to increase team work and productivity. It enables workers to communicate, share ideas and see each other’s work. It also allows video conferencing.
Jive helps to increase employee productivity by cutting company e-mails and lower the cost of communication with customers due to reduce cost for telephone services.
