What does Jive do well?
Great for basic calls and voicemails. The Mac App works well for calls and usually maintains a good connection.
What does Jive not do well?
The mobile app crashes a lot and when it rings on my cell I try to answer it and it hangs up. Not every time but it is annoying. It also doesn't work properly when I connected to my car bluetooth hands free speaker.
What do you wish you had known about Jive before using?
That the mobile app was not very functional. I also wish I would have known that it would pull all my phone contacts into the app. I only wanted by business phone extensions of other co-workers to show up not all my personal contacts.
Have you used a competitor to Jive? If so, how does it compare?
Nextiva - the mobile app was better than Jive but the Computer app is much better than Nextive
