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.

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.

For the small business, it’s a big decision. 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. Take for example the experience with one of our first […]
