We at Jive are obviously a bit biased, but we are big believers in the idea of “community.”  Online communities have the power to connect people, unearth game changing ideas, and give voice to people who otherwise might not be heard.  But despite having drunk the kool-aid, I think anyone who manages an online community will tell you it’s not all rainbows and unicorns.  For many companies, it can sometimes feel as if there is a river of activity and conversations happening, but no easy way to capture the sentiments, ideas and insights in a seamless way that allows the organization to take action on what they learn.


That’s why our customers are so excited about the Jive Bridging module in 4.0. In just a few clicks, you can capture a conversation happening in the community and begin socializing it within the organization – behind the firewall – gathering input and feedback almost instantly, and then providing a response just as easily. This is going WAY beyond what others have been promising with  Social CRM.


With the magnitude of the Jive SBS 4.0 release, jive bloggers decided to team up on the news and split it into digestible pieces. In this series of posts, we delve deep into the new mobile tools, bridging public and private realms together, deep Microsoft Office integration, and provide a high level perspective of Jive SBS 4.0.
