Jive has also signed two new strategic partnerships with leading Japan resellers TIS and Ricoh IT Solutions to help it further extend its presence in the country.

Commenting on the company's Japan launch, Jay Larson, Jive's President of Worldwide Field Operations, said: " Japan is a world leader in innovation.  But Japanese companies have had limited options for social communications and collaboration tools that these businesses can utilize to drive improvements in productivity and top-line revenue.  With Jive entering the market, Japanese companies can now benefit from a world-class collaboration platform – one that can help increase workforce productivity by 15 percent." 

Jive will provide Japanese IT departments and lines of businesses with a localized version of its cloud-based platform to empower employees, customers and partners to communicate and collaborate in a social ecosystem while seamlessly working with existing business system processes like traditional email, customer relationship management and salesforce automation tools.  Several Japanese-based and operated companies already use Jive for social collaboration and public community management, including Dentsu Inc., Hitachi Data Systems, Ricoh Americas and Toshiba.

Strategic Partnerships with TIS and Ricoh IT SolutionsJive's newly signed partnerships with TIS and Ricoh IT Solutions will help further drive Jive's industry-leading social business platform into specific Japanese businesses and verticals. TIS will resell Jive in Japan and globally, utilizing its proven presence in verticals like the financial, manufacturing and telecommunication industries.  Similarly, Ricoh IT Solutions will broaden Jive's reach in Japan and globally, focusing on bringing the power of Jive and social business to existing customers across industries.  Jive is available for Japanese companies to purchase starting at 12 USD per seat per license.
