PALO ALTO, Calif., April 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:JIVE), and Box today announced that Jive's leading social business platform and Box's best-in-class content sharing platform are now fully integrated and available in the cloud. This powerful combination of business tools gives anyone the ability to use Box and Jive together seamlessly to increase productivity, collaborate more broadly and get work done in better ways.
As an integrated solution, Jive and Box allow people to work within both platforms simultaneously.

"Box and Jive represent the new way people are working. Employees and employers want and expect best-of-breed tools that allow them to instantly collaborate in any system and multiple systems at the same time – versus being locked and slowed down by working in one closed business app at a time," said Tony Zingale, chairman and CEO of Jive.
