Jive Software (News - Alert), Inc. has been on an acquisition streak, having purchased both Meetings.io and Producteev. Together, the companies will provide Jive with even more user-friendly innovation, combining a new cloud-based task management and a video meeting tool to Jive’s products.
With Meetings.io, users can create video and chat connections with anyone on a web browser. It provides group video meetings in real time, including group chats and screen sharing, that can be used without downloads or sign ups across companies and locations.
Jive’s other acquisition, Producteev, is a cloud-based task management solution. With it, teams can collaborate and manage their workloads across any platform, setting tasks and transferring workstreams into trackable actions as necessary. It can manage and collaborate on tasks form anywhere, collect the tasks from emails, then schedule, prioritize, and assign them while tracking the task progress in real time.
“As standalone applications and as part of the Jive platform, Meetings.io and Producteev offer dynamic and powerful social communications tools to help people deliver more business value to organizations,” says Tony Zingale, Chairman and CEO of Jive. “Meetings.io’s RTC platform allows people to use video and chat connections by simply clicking a link. When I can simply call up a session without hassle and talk to someone to solve a problem in real time, I know I’m much more efficient, personal and frankly, better. We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome these talented teams to Jive, who will help us accelerate the innovation and power of our platform for the benefit of our customers.”
Jive made some smart choices when it acquired the two companies. Both have services that will make a nice addition to Jive’s products, adding great video chat and task management solutions to them. The products will be integrated into the Jive platform in 2013, but they’ll also be available as standalone products, so customers will still be able to enjoy all that they have to offer, while Jive’s customers will be able to soon.
