Jive wants to replace your employee directory
What does the new guy on the team or someone from the branch office look like? Is your colleague working offsite or in her cubicle? What person in legal should deal with that thorny contract issue? Who can you call from the lobby to sign you in with security?
Jive Software has written a mobile app that answers those sorts of pesky day-to-day questions. It’s an interactive employee directory with built-in location intelligence and a virtual org chart thrown in. What’s more, you don’t need to buy its full-blown social business software application, to use it.
Jive Circle is the second app introduced by the company this year, as Jive attempts to convince businesses that it’s more than a purveyor of social business software. The first one shipped in April. Called Jive Chime, it offers many of the same features as workplace chat applications such as Slack or Atlassian’s HipChat.
“These apps work independently, but also well together,” said Colleen Jansen, Jive’s vice president of marketing. “This is something that works well without being an existing Jive customer. They are single, purpose-built experiences that solve specific problems.”
That said, they’re a not-so-subtle way to build awareness for Jive’s flagship software application, used by the likes of GoDaddy, Humana, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., and Stella & Dot.
Jansen declined to discuss Chime adoption metrics or pricing for either app.
Jive is due to report its second quarter Aug. 4. For Q1, it managed a 15% revenue increase to $47.1 million, and the latest period is expected to be in the same range. For the full year, the software company anticipates revenue of $195 million to $200 million.
