Stay with your old dial tone system because you know how to work it, or jump aboard the new-age train and get a Hosted VoIP provider with all the new phone system features. The statistics show that most are moving in the direction of the Cloud, but there’s still a big problem. Most companies with a new-age Hosted VoIP system aren’t really utilizing it to its full (or even half of its) potential. You end up with a Cadillac of a phone system that you’re trying to push up a […]
The idea of a “creative” accountant has long been frowned upon, and for good reason. In fact, I remember one of my accounting professors telling this joke: “When asked the question ‘What is 1 + 1?’ the wrong accounting candidate would lean forward and say, with a conspiratorial smile, “What do you want it to be?’” And yet, at Jive, an innovative mindset within the finance/accounting framework has been vital in bootstrapping our business to tens of millions in revenue, 30+ quarters of consecutive growth, and a 9-figure company valuation.

As Jive’s in-house lawyer, I work with a variety of people every day. I get asked all kinds of questions. I sit in on a lot of interesting meetings. In a meeting I recently attended, one of our executives said something very simple. As seasoned as I feel that I am, I was shocked at how hard this comment hit me: “We want Jive to be a company that people enjoy working with.” Simple, but powerful.
