Real-time messaging has become a hot area in enterprise software thanks in part to the hype surrounding Slack, and Jive Software has now joined the fray.

Announced in February, Jive Chime has now graduated from beta and is available for use on desktops and mobile devices.

Jive Chime aims to keep teams connected in real time across iOS and Android devices and on Windows and Mac desktops. Promising a secure and consumer-style experience, the app can be used for both one-on-one and group conversations. Both images and links can be shared in-line from mobile or desktop devices.

Chime is designed to make it easy for users to create and name groups, add and remove coworkers from conversations, and see when messages are read and when team members are responding. Employees can also customize the tool by setting notification preferences so that they can stay informed without getting bombarded.

IT admins, meanwhile, can add, deactivate and edit employees' profiles by uploading their directory in a centralized console.

The basic Chime app is free, but the optional IT administration features cost $2 per user per month.

Jive Chime joins the Jive Daily company news app as the first offerings to emerge from the company's recently announced Jive-w app portfolio.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
