Social enterprise company Jive is debuting a number of new features for its social network for businesses today. The company is also announcing its Try Jive, a free 30-day trial for customers.
Jive is one of the giants on the social enterprise space. Modeled to offer Facebook-like features to enterprises, Jive’s software combines computing with social collaboration to offer fully-featured, internal social networks for businesses. Its suite of applications help businesses collaborate on a variety of tasks, including holding discussions, communication, sharing documents, blogging, running polls, social networking features and more.
Via a new plugin, users can now integrate Jive Anywhere, which allows users to search their Jive networks and access information from their browser. So within a web-based CRM product, you could look up deal discussion and documents in your Jive network without having to leave the page.
Jive is also debuting a more integrated App experience, which allows users to integrate data from third-party apps into the Jive platform. For example, the new app from Box brings Box folders and ﬁles directly into Jive discussions so customers can see and collaborate on Box documents while creating and viewing content in Jive.
Other improvements to Jive’s platforms include more intelligent search, as well as Jive for Teams, a new group collaboration solution for teams of 25 to 250,000 people.
Jive also recently launched a dedicated social intranet product for the enterprise and a new customer service software.
