PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) today announced that SunEdison, Inc., the world's largest renewable energy development company, selected the Jive-n solution to underpin its new interactive intranet and collaboration hub. Jive's cloud-based solution will help drive strategic alignment, cultural unity and increased productivity for the company's 3,300 global employees by helping them easily connect, communicate and collaborate from any device.
SunEdison has 35 office locations across North America, Europe and Asia. As the company grew, its traditional intranet didn't keep pace with the vibrant energy and collaborative mindset of SunEdison's employees. The communications team set out to find a people-centric solution that would deliver a more intuitive, simple user experience, empower modern workstyles and support the company's recent cultural transformation.
"SunEdison's DNA is built on innovation, diversity and thinking outside the box about how to bring clean, affordable energy to the world. To nurture SunEdison's thriving culture, we are working to become a more connected enterprise," said Ken Milhous, director of corporate communications at SunEdison. "Jive-n's flexible collaboration hub will drive strategic alignment and capture untapped potential by bringing everyone across the company together in a one-stop digital workplace."
The Jive-enabled interactive intranet enables more two-way internal communications that keep employees aligned and engaged with the company's strategy, goals and values, while giving SunEdison leaders meaningful insights through analytics that measure the reach and impact of their messages. In addition, Jive's powerful enterprise search capabilities speed new hire onboarding and other workflows by helping people quickly find any piece of content, whether stored in Jive-n or another integrated system.
With the support of Jive's professional services group, SunEdison launched its new collaboration hub to employees worldwide, enabling better communication and streamlined workflow across the company's different groups and locations. SunEdison will also enhance user profiles with Jive's gamification features and Active Directory integration to help employees find, connect with and follow subject matter experts or like-minded colleagues across the organization.
"SunEdison is at the forefront of the renewable energy industry, and much of its success stems from the company's smart approach to product innovation, cost reduction and fostering an efficient workforce," said Robert Block, chief customer success officer at Jive Software. "We enjoy partnering with forward-looking organizations like SunEdison that recognize the value of re-inventing how employees work together within the context of today's evolving workstyles."
SunEdison is one of several energy, extraction and engineering businesses – such as Cameron, Chesapeake, Jacobs Engineering Group, PinkPetro and Schneider Electric – that use Jive communities to improve innovation, productivity and safety. Jive helps these industry leaders identify and leverage their internal expertise, increase the impact of research and development, and communicate new regulations to drive compliance and reduce risk.
