LAS VEGAS, Oct. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- JiveWorld14 -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) today announced the Fall cloud release of its JiveX™ external community platform, providing companies with modern and innovative ways to deepen customer and partner engagement by delivering more valuable insights to both community managers and participants with ROI-focused analytics, and driving stronger brand affinity with compelling interactions across both mobile and web experiences. Unveiled at JiveWorld14 in front of a record number of customers and partners, the JiveX Fall cloud release offers several new features that enable companies to expand their customer reach to drive new and repeat business while building brand loyalty.
"In the digitally connected world, an engaging community for customers and partners is a business imperative. However, in order to unlock the true potential of these communities, brands need to deliver user experiences that create meaningful engagements and interactions with their audiences," said Clara Liang, chief product officer, Jive Software. "Our latest update to the JiveX platform provides companies with even more ways to put their users first, enabling brands to better encourage and increase participation and discussions within the community. This translates to stronger brand loyalty and affinity for our customers."
Available in November, the JiveX Fall cloud release provides community managers with a wide range of new capabilities to strengthen their partner and customer communities:
- Drive greater customer and partner engagement. JiveX Fall cloud release delivers an even more compelling experience to drive customers and partners back to their communities. By showcasing top and relevant activities, visitors can quickly scan for the most important posts, questions, announcements and discussions. New role badges provide a visual cue of a user's role, such as community administrators, moderators, experts and champions, so members can easily associate what someone is saying to their role in the community.
- Deliver deeper insights to improve user experience. With an advanced Q&A workflow and insights, JiveX enables community users to quickly find the most useful content, and community managers to glean insights into the value of their communities. With new 'Most Helpful' ratings, users can effectively identify the most helpful replies to questions with a yes or no vote to guide other community members more quickly to which content was the best and most helpful. With new ROI analytics, community managers can access new reports providing quantitative data enabling them to demonstrate the value of their community.
- Strengthen brand affinity. JiveX improves the ability for organizations to drive a strong brand experience across all community participants, but in particular those accessing communities via mobile devices. Community managers can now take advantage of new simplified management capabilities to customize their community's mobile browsers to deliver the best browsing experience possible while providing the same flexible layouts equivalent to the desktop experience.
"At Sidecar, our community is arguably one of the most important elements of our business – providing a shared voice among our corporate offices, network of drivers and our valued customers especially on mobile devices," said Maria Ogneva, head of community, Sidecar. "The newest features within the JiveX Fall cloud release will provide Sidecar with an even more engaging platform to bring our community together, encourage and empower each individual to be ambassadors of our brand and help us build our following within a quickly changing competitive environment."
