United Business Media, a distributor of news and information, is using Jive technology to improve productivity by connecting its employees located around the globe.
UBM is expected to use Jive technology to change how its employees find, connect and collaborate with each other both within and across its various business units. With Jive, UBM is expected to change the company’s culture from that of segregated business units to that of open communication and dialogue.
David Michael, executive vice president of global technology at UBM, said: We realized very early on that social business software has the ability to fundamentally change the way work gets done in our organization. Jive’s turn-key Enterprise SaaS solution allowed us to focus less on the technology and more on how we can help our employees become more efficient and productive in these tough economic times.
Dave Hersh, CEO of Jive Software, said: United Business Media’s use of social business software is another great example of how leading global companies continue to innovate in a harsh economic climate. Social business software helps UBM tackle its most fundamental business challenges by harnessing the power of its most valuable asset, its people.
