Pros

Pros

Intuitive UI on admin portal and the voice quality has been great. Also liked the graphical IVR editor - very easy, and the mobile app which is free.
I love that its simple and clean interface. I love that I can use it to call Worldwide.
This has been a welcome improvement over things like Google Voice. It allows for multiple users and phone extensions and the staying connected even when out of the office is a breeze.

Cons

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

Jive was the worst decision we could have ever made as a company. They are dishonest, rude, and tried to double bill us at the end.
Again, after extensive troubleshooting with the tech team and a manager, they simply blamed it on Apple with no foreseeable fixes in the future.
Nothing at this time that I dislike about this software.

Good VoIP provider for SMB

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, the software and phone system is a good VoIP solution. The cost and features are similar to the competition. Phone costs are definitely a win with Jive.

Pros

Customer Support, visibility in to the usage via the dashboard, and PBX Administration.

Cons

The configuration is clunky at times. There are certain features available on the handsets that cannot be controlled through the software. There are several work arounds for features. Best to call in to support for those.

I would like for JIVE to offer more music options for on hold music. The ones offered in the package are poor.

Best change from Landline to VOIP ever!

Reviewed 7 months ago

I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't moved over. The cost isn't high and very affordable compared to our old system. Just need to ensure proper internet service.

Pros

We changed over from our previous PBX landline system to a PBX IP VoIP system and have never been happier. Easy way to setup everything from call centre, confrence, transfers, PA system and so much more with the system in place

Cons

The only negative is that the system has gone done a few times over 2 years. Maybe 3-4 times and had some issues with the fax machine. The customer is good but sometimes can take longer than required especially if a business runs on telephone lines.

Love Jive!!

Reviewed 4 years ago

overall we are satisfied, however if the contact center doesn't allow us to be able to have agents log in independently from the device for desk sharing we may be looking at alternate options. (jive Web has a do not disturb feature that we are not able to disable, so therefore we cant use bcz we cant see if agents are on do not disturb)

Pros

love that its web based, full access to the PBX where I can control call routing at a minutes time. Reporting easy to access. Jive app allows me to take phone calls from anywhere.

Cons

Contact center needs developing it is not agent centric at all. It is queue centric, it is missing visibility into what the agent is doing. individual log ins are not available so for a call center that share desk this is not a good product as the data is all geared to the device and not the user. Call centers usually share seats, so this is a major fail. Also there is no visibility into agent status, outbound calls are not identified so you see "idle for an agent " when in fact they are on an outbound call.

Using Jive

Reviewed 4 years ago

Replacing old Nortel PBXes, other VOIP implementations, and other patchwork phone systems is nice -- once all the kinks are worked out of a Jive PBX for a client it's pretty great. The Tier 2 / 3 Support is also excellent, when they are needed.

Pros

Lots of features. Once configured properly, it works very nicely and we have had few issues for production PBXes.

Cons

Lots of features - some of the management through the GUI to turn on or adjust features is unintuitive and probably unnecessarily so. Some of resolutions for issues seen during migrations to Jive took too long -- considering how critical regular phone service is for business, even now with all of the other communications tech options available.

Fantastic VoIP company

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

I like the ease and power of the virtual PBX. I can use it with VoIP phones, softphones, traditional landlines, and cell phones. Nodal dial plans make laying out complicated call flows so much easier. You have cloud voicemail that then forwards to email which is really convenient.

Cons

No complaints. The only downfall of VoIP is that if your internet goes down, you lose your phones, or if the service has an outage, you lose your phones, so it is similar to other internet hosted services and has the same risk as a traditional land line.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

We like the scalability of the software. Meaning, we can open new location(s) and simply plug in the phones and we're ready to go live. We also like the dial plan creation tool as well. Please add a print function for the dial plan.

Cons

Jive voice needs better solution for paging. We've had issues since day 1 with paging options. The mobile app also has several glitches such as freezing and portrait view only. Also, a cleaner PBX admin dashboard would help. For example, it can be confusing updating extensions and usernames due to several interconnected options (users vs devices vs lines). The voicemail options are confusing as well.

Great service for our Remote users

Reviewed 6 years ago

We have been using Jive for almost a year. We started with only one phone for our helpdesk. We needed a way to transfer a single phone number between people to cover weekend and holidays. We previously had to drive to the building and make a forwarding change on a desk phone. By switching to a web PBX we can just login and make any changes necessary. We are now using the service for our Speakerphones and mobile staff.

Pros

We can have a single phone number to serve several shifts, even if they aren't in the same geographic region. We can use the smartphone app or forward the calls to one or more people, or all simultaneously. Adding phones is nearly painless, most users don't need to any new wiring, and you don't need to hire a technician.

Cons

We have occasionally had call quality issues, but this is more a reflection on the internet provider than on Jive. If you don't have an internet connection you can't make or receive a call, but again, this is an internet provider issue, not Jive.

Best VoIP!

Great! Best VoIP solution on the market! integration with their video conferencing solution is currently free. They are always upgrading and imporving. Full of features to meet the growing small business.

Pros

Full of features of a full PBX system. call parking, and auto answer are great features. Also the call routing. wide range of options. Large selection of harware and phone options. Great for any size business. We are not a very big company but as we grow so does our phone usage and Jive can expand easily to more extensions, etc. Jive mobile app is included free, and you can have calls forwarded to your cell phone.

Cons

No real cons. Could have more walk through setup wizards that could setup things for you. It can get confusing when you have a large system and need to make changes.

Wow! I wish we'd had this years ago!

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

We have used PBX equipment in our business for years, and although it has worked well for us, the equipment was expensive, and we needed lots of phones and phone lines. We had previously tried VoIP twice but had too many problems, and the vendors didn't seem to understand that our business lives and dies by the telephone! This system has reduced our costs dramatically and has been rock solid. I wish we'd had it 10 years ago!

So far, there is nothing about this product or the vendor that I don't like!

Jive

Reviewed 5 years ago

I really like them. Being on the IT side they are always very helpful and have assisted me in solving issues (or just done it themselves). The reliability was shaky at first but we have had the service go down in months and months vs Ringcentral where it would go down a few times a month even if only for a few minutes. The admin side PBX takes some getting use to, but once you do its a breeze to set up new users and change features, but when you are learning something new, make sure you take note of all the steps needed to set things up, because you might forget the next time. Though this might be more my fault as this is my first time working with phones in depth. Though they need some improvement on the web/app side vs RC. They are far superior in ease of use and reliability.

Pros

The customer service is great and I always get help when I call in which is a lot. Everything is very easy to setup for new users.

Cons

Jive Web isnt great. There are (or were) a lot of bugs with it. We have some users who show they have messages or vms when they dont. I have contacted support about it and they have been very helpful but havent really found a fix. The texting option was in beta but isnt anymore? (not sure) so it works fine for the most part but acts strange sometimes and will stop working. I guess reporting is in beta as well and that is difficult to understand though this is in the PBX admin side vs Jive Web.

* Very reasonable cost. * Great Customer Service * Free virtual extensions (forwarding to mobile phones) * Easy to use web interface. * Good voice quality

Cons

* Some issues with billing (but they got that sorted out) * Fax service is not as easy to use. * Slower delivery with phones (but that was due to a glitch in their system)
