Culture is a big deal at Jive Communications. Not only do we want to say we offer the absolute best work environment in Utah for developers and engineers, we want to live it. Our goals and aspirations are large, and we have a significant amount of work to do in order to reach them. Regardless, we plug away, one small step at a time. Continuous retrospection and improvement are not only our mantra, they are also our way of life. We experiment, gather feedback, and continually adapt to meet changing needs and requirements. Two months ago, we embarked on an […]
The Spirit of Awesomeness is alive and well at Jive Dev! Yesterday, twenty of our intrepid team members gathered to kick off planning for Jive’s Google I/O 2015 Extended event. In roughly 20 days, we will be kicking open the doors to bring in our peers and associates from throughout the local IT community to share in this exciting experience – and best of all, it’s ALL FREE, my friends! Riding the coattails of our recent success with an extended version of the popular ng-conf in early March, we decided to again bring a slice of the excitement home. On Thursday and Friday, […]
April is a special month for employees at Jive as it marks the time for the annual company retreat. This year about 270 Jivers descended on Las Vegas for a weekend of general mayhem. The creative team decided to take this opportunity to deck out our fellow Jivers in vegas-themed swag. In addition to hats and shirts featuring the Jive Jeep, we gave out temporary Jive tattoos, playing cards, and money clips stuffed with dollar bills. Of course, once we were finished with the swag we couldn’t stop there. With the help of the executive team we organized a bowling […]
I’ve noticed the phrase, “fake it ‘til you make it,” in the media lately. I first heard it discussed in a TED talk and saw it on the cover of an issue of Harvard Business Review. I later heard it echoed by a local author, Merilee Boyack, during a community outreach luncheon. This concept deals with the human ability to imitate a behavior until it becomes habit. If you’re able to observe another’s successful traits, imitate that behavior, then pull it off convincingly, others will likely treat you as if that’s just the way you are and have always been. […]
Jive proudly sponsored the ng conf 2015 Kids Coding Bootcamp that took place March 5-6 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Using Scratch, a block-based programming language developed at MIT, kids designed their own games, mazes and characters while learning basic programming skills they can build on in the future. This video highlights the kids who went through the Bootcamp, their excitement about coding, and basically shows that they will take over the world before we know it. With these developers at the helm, the future of the Cloud is in pretty safe hands. The best and […]
Technology has grown from a luxury to a necessity in just a few short years. Classrooms have evolved from the chalkboard to the overhead projector to video content, PowerPoint presentations, eBooks, and much more. It is common to walk into a university library and see students studying with nothing but a laptop—the books on the shelves acting as nothing but wall art. Many argue that technology is killing communication, but universities and colleges know differently. They understand that technology is actually improving and enhancing communications. In fact, students and teachers alike expect collaboration outside the classroom to occur effortlessly, with […]
So how does Jive Hosted VoIP relate to fantasy baseball? Your business is your fantasy team, and the best way to make decisions about the future is through the use of detailed information about the past. Jive call analytics empower you to maximize sales leads and efficiency by viewing your macro and micro phone-traffic patterns. These include data such as “mean/min/max” reports and time-of-day reports for all extensions and numbers, geography-based heat maps, and downloadable CDRs. Filters can be applied that sort data by call count, time of day, call duration, caller geography, call routing information, and more.
One of the more common questions I’ve gotten over the last year or so has been now that WebRTC is available in major browsers, isn’t SIP going to go away? As WebRTC is really aimed at the access layer, let’s rephrase this question to: Is WebRTC going to replace SIP at the access layer?
At Jive, we like to keep our heads in the clouds—or Cloud, in our case. Cloud technology has already re-wired the way we live, from social media to file storage to streaming your favorite music and movies. But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming.
Jive Communications is not only solidifying itself in the telecommunications marketplace, but it’s also making its mark on American pop culture. When West Coast Customs’ new season airs this fall, Jive will be featured on one of its episodes to reveal our newest team member—the Jive Jeep.
