PALO ALTO, Calif., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Jive Software, Inc.
(Nasdaq:JIVE), today introduced a new suite of mobile apps to help people do
their jobs more effectively on the go, anywhere and anytime. The mobile social
business software offerings, which include new iPad®, iPhone® and Android™
apps, provide people with a fast, convenient way to create content, find
experts and answers, search for information and take action all from their
smartphones and tablets. For the first time, users can generate serious work
documents on a mobile platform instead of using such devices primarily for
viewing documents created elsewhere.

"Jive has succeeded in making mobile work for work," said Nathan Rawlins, vice
president of product marketing, Jive Software. "Smartphones and tablets need
to offer more than just the ability to read updates and provide quick
responses back. With employees traveling more often and working remotely, it
is critical that they have the ability to actively participate regardless of
what device they use. Jive is transforming the mobile experience from a
passive experience to real productive collaboration anytime and anywhere."

Three New Mobile Offerings To Boost Workforce Productivity On The Go
The new apps provide people with effective communication and collaboration
tools while expanding productivity in key tasks and roles. The new apps
include:

  oJive for iPad: The new native app delivers an elegant consumer-class
    experience designed to get work done. Anyone can track progress on key
    projects, quickly get the latest news and stay in sync with teams through
    custom streams. In addition, remote employees can deepen their connection
    with the company and on-the-go executives can keep their finger on the
    pulse with an entirely new visual experience to explore and discover who
    and what is trending. The full rich-text editor makes it easy to create
    new content, including blog posts and documents to capture meetings notes
    and share with others. The app also helps people find the most relevant
    experts and answers with a new visual search filter coming later this
    month. A sales rep in an important meeting never again has to delay the
    deal with "let me get back to you on that." They can find the answer, send
    relevant collateral or get the number for an expert in their region to
    dial in live.
  oJive for iPhone 2.0: The enhanced app, now 50 percent faster, helps
    everyone collaborate more effectively wherever work takes them. The app
    moves people and projects from a noisy fire hose of irrelevant information
    to action and business outcomes by focusing attention through custom,
    automatically curated streams, highlighting final content and decisions,
    and making it easy to highlight what needs action by others. At the same
    time, it streamlines asking questions and finding answers and experts via
    intuitive navigation and a new slide-out side menu. Switching between
    working with colleagues internally and customers or partners in dedicated
    communities is also easy. Jive meets enterprise mobile security needs,
    including options to prevent any local content storage and remotely revoke
    access.
  oJive Present for iPad and Android: The new Android app and
    enhanced-version of the iPad app streamlines field sales and employee
    training, compliance and enablement. Sales leaders can equip global teams
    with the latest and consistent content with full auditable control over
    who receives, reads and distributes content to others. Not only do sales
    teams have access to the latest collateral while in the field, but Jive
    Present also integrates with their CRM tool, giving them access to
    contacts and the ability to sync activities and notes.In addition, sales
    reps can have a direct line back to the content creators inside marketing
    and sales for questions and comments. Jive Present for iPad is available
    immediately and the Jive Present for Android app will available in July.

Massive Increase in Mobile Usage on Jive
In the past year alone, Jive has seen a 435 percent increase in mobile usage
from its global customers, helping people be active participants in
conversations, even while on the go. With the newest mobile additions to the
Jive portfolio, an even larger number of customers are expected to turn to
their mobile and tablet devices to access Jive and create a whole new set of
content without the need to use their PCs or laptops.

"I'm absolutely certain Jive Mobile is going to transform the way our
employees – and especially our senior executives – use The Hub, our version of
Jive," said Tim Wike, director, intranet strategy and operations at Thomson
Reuters. "By offering Jive apps on the iPhone and iPad, we can further extend
social collaboration throughout our workforce, helping improve the
communication, contributions to content and the overall productivity for
employees on the go."

Extending Mobile Technology to Third-party Developers
The Jive iPad and iPhone apps are built on the Jive iOS-SDK, which allows
mobile developers to leverage the powerful features in Jive and create
purpose-built native iOS applications that are based on Jive's robust social
business core platform. Developers can easily add social functionality into
their own applications by providing a wrapper for Jive's REST API. The SDK
also offers developers continuous deployment while insulating the apps in
edge-case scenarios, ensuring subtle differences between minor updates do not
impact the experience. Learn more about the Jive developer community here.
