SYDNEY, Australia, March 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jive Software, Inc.
(Nasdaq:JIVE), a leading social business platform, today announced the opening
of new offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Australia; Hong Kong; and Singapore.
Jive's expanded presence in Asia Pacific comes as more companies recognize how
social business platforms can deliver real business value for their customers,
partners and employees, including increasing workforce productivity up to 15
percent and increasing top-line growth by as much as 4 percent.*
Commenting on the company's Asia-Pacific launch, Jay Larson, Jive's President
of Worldwide Field Operations, said: "Some of the most innovative companies
across the world, including several in Australia and Asia, are transforming
their businesses with Jive. Our products help customers, partners and
employees access the information, expertise, and best practices they need to
get work done in a better way. And don't just take our word for it.
Third-party research proves customers using Jive spend less time on email, in
meetings and searching for information–ultimately increasing productivity by
up to 15 percent. We're excited about bringing the goodness of Jive to
Australia and Asia."
Jive's cloud-based platform helps lines of businesses be more productive,
communicate and collaborate better, while also adapting to existing business
system processes. For example a sales organization implementing Jive can
increase sales per rep by 13 percent, raise win rates by 12 percent and
shorten sales cycles by 22 percent.*
Jive has already worked with several Asia-Pacific and global clients to help
transform their business processes, including Ace Insurance, Commonwealth
Bank, PwC Australia and REA Group.
Commenting on the REA Group's implementation of Jive, Melissa Hendry, Internal
Communications of REA Group, said: "We've been using Jive as a social intranet
since 2009. This is now a crucial business tool that enables communication,
collaboration and knowledge management among employees. And particularly
