News : Frost & Sullivan Lauds Jive Communications' Growth Rates
Mountain View, CA, Jan 7, 2015 -- Based on its recent analysis of the hosted Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and unified communications and collaboration (UCC) services market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Jive Communications with the 2014 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. Jive has earned a position among the top 20 IP and UCC companies in North America due to its strong focus on continued product enhancements, service reliability and competitive pricing.
"Jive's comprehensive, pre-integrated hosted applications suite eliminates the cost and hassle of deploying, integrating and managing disparate premises-based solutions," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Elka Popova. "Its hosted offerings are viable solutions for the underserved, budget-constrained small businesses, as well as larger organizations struggling to maintain and manage multi-vendor communications environments."
"In 2013, Jive reported over 100 percent growth in revenues, which was well ahead of the industry average of 30 percent. Its pursuit of greater market share is also evident in other performance metrics such as improved customer retention rates, network and service reliability, and platform scalability," noted Popova. "Additionally, Jive is growing internationally; it opened its first European data center and launched Europe and Latin America expansion initiatives in 2013."
