Orem, UT (PRWEB) – Jive Communications, a leader in the Hosted VoIP and Unified Communications industry today announced the hiring of Todd Dechter and Scott Jager as Directors of Business Development in Higher Education. Both bring extensive knowledge and experience in providing solutions to higher education organizations across the U.S.
“We’re excited to add new levels of leadership to Jive’s education initiatives,” said John Pope, CEO at Jive. “Both Scott and Todd understand the unique intersection of needs in Higher Ed. These groups need cloud functionality, and are more driven by budgets and business cases than ever before.”
Jive offers industry-leading Hosted VoIP and Unified Communications solutions that let organizations manage their communications seamlessly via the Cloud. Jive’s signature visual dial plan editor allows administrators to visually map out call flows and dial configurations using a drag-and-drop web interface, making traditionally difficult moves, adds, and changes much simpler.
“The industry demand for enhanced communications continues to grow, and Jive is poised to adapt its platform quickly,” said Scott Jager. “Our initial emphasis is on increasing collaboration for all stakeholders (peer to peer, student to instructor, instructor to administration) through real-time voice, video, chat, conferencing, presence awareness and more.”
Cloud Hosted VoIP can be tailored to educational institutions’ needs via an intuitive online portal. Jive also offers calling prompts, emergency response services, and features built specifically for Higher Ed.
“It’s an honor to join Jive’s Higher Education division,” said Todd Dechter. “As we engage the industry and influence Jive’s product offerings, we have the ability to provide a communications platform that is an asset instead of a cost center. We can also help promote student engagement and reduce information silos that have plagued the industry. Unified Communications is moving from concept to reality in Higher Ed, and that is very cool.”
The Jive Higher Ed team is now meeting with higher education organizations across the country. For more on Jive Higher Ed or to schedule a visit from the team, see jive.com/higher-ed or call 888-960-0087.
