A Good Year for Jive

While some of Jive’s earnings weren't as favourable as the Third Quarter of 2011, the company continues to make strides and bolster its offerings through new partnerships within the industry.

In October, they announced a new iPad app, Jive Present, which aims to help companies with sale presentations and training.

They've expanded and entered into new partnerships including one with Box, with promises of integration between the two company's offerings in early 2013. Other partnerships include Chubb Insurance, NASCAR, Good Technology and F5 Networks.

Recently, Jive announced acquisition of two companies,, a real-time communication platform and Producteev, a cloud based social task management system to improve how businesses work and collaborate together.

It was also recently recognized as an industry leader in the Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace and the Magic Quadrant for Social CRM.
