Partnership Yields Powerful and Nimble Online Communities that ‘Jive’ with Clients’ Key Audiences
BOSTON – Isobar (www.isobar.com), a full-service digital communications agency and Aegis Media Group company, announced a strategic partnership with Jive Software. Isobar will use Jive’s Social Business Software to design and deliver client-branded online communities for like-minded individuals, creating new opportunities to drive interactions and build engagement with key audiences.
Jive’s comprehensive Social Business Software bundles core social media technologies such as blogs, wikis and discussion groups with a set of feature-rich, customized modules that allow an organization to tailor its social media platform to meet very specific objectives – whether that’s to build a community to support marketing and sales, foster greater employee engagement, gather customer insights to drive product innovation or create new channels for customer support. By partnering with Jive Software and using its Software as a Service (SaaS) model, Isobar is able to execute an online community program much quicker than a custom-built online community solution, enabling clients to capitalize on critical timely market opportunities.
“At Isobar, we work with clients to create a digital strategy that leverages relevant and innovative technologies to drive their business forward, and our relationship with Jive Software, the leader in the Social Business Software, is right in line with that effort,” said Bryant Shea, VP, Content and Mobile, Isobar. “Jive continues to enhance its offering and push the industry forward with a focus on more than just the “community basics. Features such as social monitoring, content integration, and analytics dashboards along with multilingual support and varying deployment options provide a flexible solution with proven history of innovation.”
“We’re very excited to partner with Isobar, an agency that has built its reputation by helping clients use the digital channel to uncover measurable opportunities to enrich their customer interactions and drive big business outcomes,” said Ben Kiker, Chief Marketing Officer, Jive Software. “We look forward to collaborating with Isobar’s team of digital experts to bring leading global brands new and interesting ways to capitalize on the power of social business.”
