Jive Software And Box To Deliver A Breakthrough In Social And Enterprise Content Collaboration

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:JIVE), and Box today announced a partnership to deeply integrate Jive's award winning social business platform and Box's best-in-class content sharing and collaboration platform. Together, Box and Jive will change how customers share and collaborate on content, driving a substantial new level of business value for knowledge workers in the enterprise and making organizations more competitive and productive.

"Both Box and Jive share a vision of fundamentally disrupting the way business gets done - Jive, with its leading social business platform and Box, with its award-winning secure content collaboration platform," said Tony Zingale, chairman and CEO of Jive. "By combining forces, we are fundamentally changing the way people connect, communicate, and collaborate to execute business and deliver tangible, substantial business and financial results to our customers."

"Box and Jive are platforms used by millions of professionals around the world, offering a powerful and easy way for businesses to connect and get work done," said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. "By unifying people across a central content platform, Box and Jive are accelerating enterprise productivity."

 A recent McKinsey Global Institute report titled The social economy: Unlocking value and productivity through social technologies (1), found that the average knowledge worker spends 28 hours per week collaborating, searching for information and using e-mail, a technology invented 40 years ago. They estimate that social technology can provide a 20-25% improvement in productivity, in effect, giving workers a full additional work day of value per week. The same report found that the value lies in using social tools to enhance communications, knowledge sharing, and collaboration within and across enterprises. As the industry leaders in social business and content sharing and collaboration, respectively, Jive and Box have the enterprise strength and consumer simplicity that businesses want and users demand. 


Box and Jive have committed joint engineering resources to develop new APIs and evolve core architectures to deliver an unprecedented integration, allowing customers to:

  • Access the entire Box experience within Jive via Box Embed
  • Access files stored in Box directly within Jive
  • Upload content to Box directly from Jive 
  • Sync document comments across the two platforms
  • Search for content across both systems

Additionally, the partnership allows sales and marketing teams at Box and Jive to work closely together, bringing their services to companies ranging from the world's largest enterprises to small and medium businesses.
