LAS VEGAS, Oct. 23, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE),
today introduced at JiveWorld13 in front of more than 1500 customers from
around the world the Jive Fall cloud release, offering a complete solution for
companies replacing dusty old portals with a modern mobile version and looking
to increase productivity by providing dynamic communication and collaboration
solutions -- whether in the office or on the go.

Jive's Social Directory provides a simple way to find experts and source
talent inside the company. People can now endorse colleagues' skills -- making
it easier than ever to find the person with the right expertise. Employees can
use these new expertise identification capabilities to find experts quickly.
For example, when creating new groups or projects, Jive auto-suggests
colleagues that match the needed talents. Additionally, Jive's profiles now
offer a 360-degree view of fellow employees, including how they are connected
within the org, their most impactful contributions, and trending content and
recent activity, plus a gallery view of photos.

Available in early November, the Jive Fall cloud release includes new
real-time communications that reach people across devices, a work environment
that brings in content from Gmail and Google Drive, a new social task
management system and a modernized corporate directory that helps employees
find experts and source talent within their company.

"We started using Jive at the beginning of the year and have already seen an
incredibly powerful impact on how employees communicate and collaborate with
each other," said Lindsay Lamb, marketing operations, Pharos Systems
International. "The innovations coming out of the Fall cloud release — from
the integrated messaging to the new social task system—will help us further
transform the way we work and drive even greater productivity gains at every
level of the company."

Portals Redefined
The primary use cases for modern enterprise portals are finding and connecting
with people, sharing and consuming information by the broad employee
population and creating meaningful departmental environments. The Jive Fall
cloud release delivers on these needs through a handful of new features.

  oA key activity in most enterprise portals is searching for people. Jive's
    Social Directory  provides a simple way to find experts and source talent
    inside the company. People can now endorse colleagues' skills -- making
    it easier than ever to find the person with the right expertise.
    Employees can use these new expertise identification capabilities to find
    experts quickly. For example, when creating new groups or projects, Jive
    auto-suggests colleagues that match the needed talents. Additionally,
    Jive's profiles now offer a 360-degree view of fellow employees, including
    how they are connected within the org, their professional experience,
    their most impactful contributions, and trending content and recent
    activity, plus a gallery view of photos.
  oWith Impact Metrics  executives and information workers can view how
    employees receive their internal blogs and strategy documents, including
    sentiment analysis, readers, whether targeted departments received a
    particular message, and who's actions drove the distribution and improved
    message reach.
  oJive Fall cloud release offers a flexible and intuitive portal platform
    that organizations can easily customize, helping individual departments
    within a company build dynamic, engaging portals in minutes for improved
    employee enablement and team coordination.

Social Collaboration and Enterprise Social Network

  oWith new real-time messaging embedded directly within the Jive platform,
    employees can initiate 1:1 or group real time conversations that carry
    through seamlessly for offline users, or they can see who else is viewing
    the same document and start a virtual hallway conversation right in
    context.
  oThe Social Task System, integrates Producteev directly within the Jive
    platform. People can easily create, assign and schedule tasks within
    Jive, including inside meeting notes, blogs, projects, profiles, spaces
    and groups. Additionally, people can now create tasks in-line in emails
    and direct them to the Jive community – providing easy tracking for the
    sender and checklists for recipients, ultimately reducing lost asks and
    removing the need for nagging follow-ups.
  oSimilar to the deep integration with Box for file storage, people can now
    access Google Drive, directly from Jive. Bi-directionally sync Jive to
    Drive and comment, mark final or needs action, make decisions and ask
    questions related to a document stored in Drive, right from the Jive
    platform. Or, work on files right in Drive while still connected to all
    the talent and resources of the company. And, get relevant profiles and
    Jive conversations from within Gmail, including the ability to comment,
    interact and create new Jive discussions from existing emails.
  oIn a world with more and more apps generating activity feeds, customers
    can bring all streams, including now Facebook and Twitter, into Jive to
    help people collaborate and get work done without having to login to
    multiple locations.
  oJive's Fall cloud release offers more  integration capabilities for
    third-party developers than any other social platform in the enterprise,
    including the ability to tie in any content system or document management
    system, build deeply integrated apps and create interactive activity
    stream objects that drive added collaboration benefits.

Enterprise Social Network Anywhere, Anytime

  oA new Universal App seamlessly brings all of the Jive Fall cloud release
    features on to iPad and iPhone devices. Designed with the new iOS7
    functionality, people can now create content using a new rich-text editor,
    take mobile videos and upload them onto their enterprise social network,
    use new search filters to find content as quickly as possible and view
    enhanced profile features and make expert recommendations within the
    social directory directly from their devices.

"We are focused on making Jive the social platform to get real work done --
ensuring collaboration happens in context, bringing in all lines-of-business
apps into the collaboration process and building the right level of
functionality to help people move conversations into actions," said Oudi
Antebi, senior vice president of products at Jive. "We're transforming the
way people communicate and collaborate in a new world where most of us are
mobile and use a best-of-breed approach when choosing the apps we use at
work."

The Jive Fall cloud release was introduced and demonstrated during the keynote
address by Tony Zingale, CEO and chairman of Jive, at the fifth-annual
JiveWorld conference, taking place October 23-24 in Las Vegas. More than 1500
attendees from 25 countries joined 20+ Jive partners and 20 JiveWorld sponsors
