I’m excited to let you know that we’re adding exactly that kind of great talent and technology to the Jive platform.

 

Today, we announced that we are bringing Meetings.io and Producteev into the Jive family – innovative companies in their respective areas of real-time communication technology (RTC) and cloud-based social task management. And what’s so exciting is that both companies already have several thousand customers around the world who have experienced what we already know - that social task management and RTC make work more productive, accountable and personal, just like Jive.

 

For those that are just getting to know these companies, Meeting.io’s RTC platform allows people to use video and chat connections by simply clicking a link.  What I love about it is that work gets that much more personal and moves that much faster. When I can simply call up a session without hassle and talk to someone to solve a problem in real time, I know I’m much more efficient, personal and frankly, better.

 

Producteev similarly makes work that much more productive by letting people collaborate together on tasks and projects on any device. If you’re like me, being able to turn real work into actual work streams as easily on my iPad and iPhone as I can on my desk is really valuable.

 

By integrating Meetings.io and Producteev into Jive, we will take a giant leap forward in making work collaboration much better. Who wouldn’t want these services that allow all of us to focus on what matters at work.

 

And the other great news is that both companies will continue to offer their services to their customers in their current form as standalone products, while we bring them into the Jive platform.

 

I’m so excited to welcome the extremely talented Meetings.io and Producteev teams to Jive because I am certain they will help us pursue our next generation platform and help our customers continue to change the way work gets done.

 

Learn more about these announcements and hear directly from Denis, Meetings.io founder and Ilan, Producteev founder. I look forward to your feedback and comments to this news and anything else on your mind.
