Jive and Polycom partner for social business video
Polycom and Jive Software have formed a strategic partnership to integrate Polycom HD video into Jive’s social business platform.
The companies say the technology alliance is designed to transform how businesses engage and collaborate with customers, employees and partners. It allows Jive customers to conduct live video chats, including group video calls, as well as record video meetings or messages for archiving, training and ongoing collaboration.
As consumers and knowledge workers rapidly adopt social business and video collaboration, seamlessly integrating the two technologies is addressing a clear market need. Video-enabled social platforms give people a powerful communication vehicle to more deeply engage with others in their social circles. Video collaboration promotes richer conversations, more effective discussions, faster decision-making, and improved creativity and brainstorming.
The HD video offerings will be based on open standards to ensure interoperability with other business and communications applications. The planned offerings will enable users to make point-to-point and multipoint group video calls in real time, as well as record meetings or video messages and archive them in the context of their group for others to retrieve and view at any time.
