Jive develops enterprise social app for intranets

The Jive Social Intranet Solution is designed to create intranets that have enterprise social networking features

Jive Software has developed a version of its enterprise social collaboration software designed for intranets, the latest product it creates for specific workplace scenarios.

In the case of the Jive Social Intranet Solution, the vendor is targeting companies that want their intranet to have enterprise social networking features, such as activity streams, microblogging, employee profiles, workgroup communities and document sharing and co-editing.

CIO Australia feature: What is gamification?

Jive's product is designed to provide intranets that are dynamic in nature, engage employees, promote collaboration and contain fresh, up-to-date content, the company plans to announce on Wednesday.

It offers IT departments administration and management features to, for example, establish security controls, configure content access policies and meet compliance requirements.

Jive Social Intranet Solution is also integrated with Outlook, Office and SharePoint, so that employees can participate in the intranet from within the interfaces of those Microsoft products. It can also be integrated with other third-party business software and can be accessed from BlackBerry, Apple iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets.

Jive Social Intranet Solution also comes with a new Jive "gamification" module that lets companies create incentives for users to participate in certain activities and tasks.

Jive Gamification, as the module is called, is based on technology from Bunchball and can be used to create workplace "games" to promote, for example, that members from a specific department answer a set of questions or complete training materials.

Jive recently announced the first specialized version of its software. Called Jive Social Customer Service Solution, it is designed to help companies reduce support calls, cut resolution times and drive up customer satisfaction.

The company plans to launch another such specialized product for sales and marketing departments.

The goal of these specialized products is to reduce the amount of in-house customization needed to adapt the Jive software for specific tasks or departments.

The specialized products will be interoperable, so companies that acquire several of them will be able to collaborate and share data across departments.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
