Jive for Outlook® is here

Posted by ariel.cohen Sep 29, 2011

I'm extremely happy  to announce that Jive for Outlook® is now generally available!  With this game-changing product we are continuing our mission of driving the new way to business.


Jive for outlook® is the biggest result of our OffiSync acquisition (read more about it here: Jive Acquires OffiSync. Brings a Complete Social Experience to Your Microsoft Desktop) enabling us to accelerate the time to market with such a revolutionary solution.


No other company or products have ever come close to delivering such a deep and broad integration with Outlook®. The level of complexity to reach such results required us to go above and beyond the standard level of integration.

Jive for Outlook® transforms the way information workers use email and engage with one another. We make it possible to actually use Outlook® to boost productivity.


Email remains the most common collaboration solution in the enterprise, yet we all know it's a very unproductive one. Employees spend too much time sifting through old and new threads looking for the information needed and trying to keep up with the email overload. And while email is a communication tool between people, PEOPLE don't get the priority they deserve. Jive for Outlook® changes that by putting people at the center of every communication, adding context and social profiles that improves the way people manage their communications, making the process more productive and social. Additionally we help people find the right communication whether it is trapped in their inbox or available in Jive by using our new Super Search (and super fast) technology, that looks  across Outlook® and their Jive communities to find the information and experts they need to get their jobs done faster. All from one quick search.


Collaborate better, faster. With Jive for Outlook® we give customers a way to replace “reply all” and “group emails” with the new way to work – up-to-date discussions. Now, users can easily create Jive discussions from Outlook® directly. Plus, they can post updates, send direct messages and consume all Jive content (yeah, that means blogs, document updates, company newsletters, threaded discussions, you name it) in an innovative threaded way without leaving the comfort of Outlook®. Why does that matter? It means that Outlook users can finally easily get critical information and knowledge out of their inboxes and in front of the people that need to see it.
