PALO ALTO, Calif., May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) today announced that Clickstop selected Jive's Interactive Intranet solution to bolster its vibrant workplace culture. The innovative e-commerce and manufacturing company implemented the cloud-based Jive solution to foster open communications and collaboration in the midst of continued 30-percent growth, and to ultimately increase engagement and strategic alignment throughout the organization.
Clickstop has won several awards for its exceptional workplace culture and been featured on multiple fast growing company lists, including Inc. Magazine's 5000 Fastest Growing Companies for five years running. As the company expanded, it recognized that to maintain its vibrant culture throughout this growth period, it needed a modern digital workplace. The company's culture and communications team knew they could do better than cluttered email inboxes and a slow network drive, and chose Jive's cloud-based software to improve knowledge sharing and unify teams, departments and business units.
"Creating a great work environment is the cornerstone of our business strategy, and we are 100 percent committed to maintaining Clickstop's distinctive culture as we grow," said Monica Steffeck, co-vice president of culture and communications at Clickstop. "Jive is a perfect way to celebrate this culture and exemplify core company values like open communication—something that's vital to our success as we make the transition into a larger organization. As a market leader, Jive brings the benefits of constant innovation and employee engagement best practices, while giving us the flexibility to make the intranet our own with minimal IT support."
Clickstop recently rolled out its new Jive-powered interactive intranet, named "Edison," as a digital hub for all company communications and collaboration across 150 employees. With about half of the workforce using Jive on tablets in the company's warehouses and manufacturing space, the online software helps to build valuable connections that bridge the gap between office and warehouse staff. Jive keeps everyone informed of the company's new initiatives, financial performance updates, helpful documents, workplace happenings and social events. Through Jive, Clickstop's executives engage in conversations with employees and collaborate with individuals all over the company. The interactive intranet provides visibility into what's going on in each department and keeps the organization aligned. Leaders have even opened the process of planning the company's quarterly goals to an organization-wide brainstorm via the intranet.
Teams can also share and update project plans in dedicated permission-based spaces, enabling better task management and accountability. Since its launch, employees have shared over 1,500 pieces of content through Jive, creating a fully indexed and searchable 'corporate memory.' And new staff can get up to speed much faster through onboarding quests that help them find the support and resources they need to become productive. All of this boosts Clickstop's employee engagement, empowerment and strategic buy-in.
"Clickstop's interactive intranet is helping the company bypass common growing pains and productivity killers that often emerge as companies shift from small, to mid-sized, to large organizations," said Robert Block, chief customer success officer at Jive Software. "It's no surprise that such a culture-centric business recognizes the value of helping its employees work out loud, supporting autonomous workstyles and embracing transparency through a solution like Jive."
Clickstop owns and operates a suite of online storefronts that serve diverse markets such as the moving and cargo control industry, energy efficient insulation products, and home organizing solutions. Clickstop is one of many companies that use Jive to support critical human resources and corporate communications goals, such as establishing a unified company culture, increasing employee engagement and driving strategic alignment. Businesses such as ADP, Cerner, Devoteam, GoDaddy, Grant Thornton, Pearson, Plex Systems, Ricoh, Spectrum Health and Thomson Reuters have deployed Jive's Interactive Intranet solution to enhance communications and collaboration between executives, departments and geographical locations.
