Six people started Jive on a shoestring-budget in 2006. Today, it’s a major communications firm with a team of 700 and offices in 11 countries.
Following their recent acquisition by business software giant LogMeIn, Jive’s customer base is exploding. Fortunately for regular users, service is as steady as ever. Jive’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) call quality remains second-to-none.
Jive Communications Key Features
Jive’s laundry list of features almost certainly includes ones that your company could use. The most popular features include
- Three-way conferencing
- Auto attendants
- Auto divert
- Call analytics
- Call monitoring
- Call waiting
- Custom hold music
- Extension dialing
- Unlimited call queues
Of course, you might not need all of these features. Fortunately, the ones you don’t use won’t cost you a single dime more. With Jive, you’ll never feel like you’re ‘wasting capacity’, or paying for something you don’t need.
Jive’s pricing structure is as simple as they come. You pay per user, and the rate decreases the more users you have. There are no tiered service levels - you get the same features in the lowest tier as you do in the highest one.
|Number of Users||Monthly Price Per User||Cost for 12 Months|
If you have 100 or more users, rates are more negotiable. Jive offers custom service plans at this level, and will go out of their way to cater to your needs. To find out more, simply request VoIP quotes from Jive and up to four other providers.
Jive is dedicated to outstanding customer service, which is why they handle all inbound call traffic from their contact center in Utah rather than an offshore service center.
That’s great, not just for ease-of-communication, but because a sleepy call agent at 4am in the opposite hemisphere may not be as helpful as one working at (roughly) the same time of day as your callers.
It’s also great for logistical reasons. Most of Jive’s customers are based in the US, Canada and Latin America, so a US call center means you’ll get uninterrupted service during peak business hours.
As a company, Jive deserves every accolade that comes their way. Their VoIP service boasts a huge feature set and offers excellent customer service, including support from trained VoIP engineers. And because Jive does away with the traditional model of charging more for ‘extra’ features, their VoIP service is well within most SMBs price range.
Granted, a few customers have complained about technical issues, and there's the slight inconvenience of needing to reboot handsets after software updates. But, overall, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal than Jive’s reasonably priced VoIP service.
