The deal will give Jive the ability to offer enterprises an easy way to make Microsoft Word and Outlook instantly social and tightly integrated with Jive.
For those who’ve wondered whether it’s really possible for an enterprise to embrace Social Business, you can stop wondering. With this acquisition, Jive is bringing Social Business to you, where you work, to your desktop, to the applications and emails you live in eight hours a day. Our customers no longer have to choose between collaborating on Jive’s Social Business platform or the familiar Microsoft Office UI.
â€œThe integration is very deep,â€ Antebi says. â€œYou can see edits as they happen. This is social document collaboration as opposed to old school document management where you check in and check out a document and come back two hours later and wait for it. Thatâ€™s the â€™90s.â€ – Jive Software
