Jive Software (www.jivechime.com) has released Jive Chime, an app that connects coworkers in real time. It’s available for Mac OS X, iOS, Windows and Android systems.
Employees can instantly start 1:1 or group conversations with coworkers, teams and departments, whether at their desks or on the go, says Elisa Steele, CEO and president, Jive Software. An employee can start a conversation from their phone while on the go and then easily pick up the conversation from their desktop later on. Any employee can connect with anyone inside their company without needing their email or phone number saved as a contact.
Employees can set notification preferences according to their individual needs to stay in the loop without getting bombarded by alerts. People can create and name Jive Chime groups, add and remove coworkers from conversations, see when messages are read and when team members are responding, and send team chimes as needed.
IT organizations can leverage new administration features for adding, deactivating and editing employees’ profiles by uploading their directory in a centralized console. These features are available for US$2 per user per month.
