Jive + DocVerse = Something You’ve Never Seen Before

More big news today here at DocVerse! I’m thrilled to announce that DocVerse has entered into a strategic partnership with Jive Software, the market leader for enterprise social collaboration software. As part of this partnership, Jive will distribute DocVerse Enterprise as a module of Jive SBS 4.0 under the name Jive Connects for Microsoft Office.

This is great news for both DocVerse and Jive — and giant news for the enterprise collaboration market. Together, Jive and DocVerse will bring a brand new form of social software to the most popular productivity tools in the world — Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel — the apps 600 million people depend upon every day.

As of today, the Jive Connects for Microsoft Office product offers the power of DocVerse to Jive’s industry leading enterprise customers around the world, including 15% of the Fortune 500.

But what gets me most excited about our partnership with Jive, is that our combined offering truly does redefine enterprise collaboration.The functionality enabled by combining DocVerse and Jive simply does not exist anywhere else today.

Not only will this combination have a huge impact on the daily lives of Jive users, it will also maximize Jive customers’ investment in SBS 4.0 by extending the same great user experience offered by the rest of SBS into the applications that almost everyone uses constantly, every day — Word, PowerPoint and Excel.

We’d like to thank the entire Jive Software team for making this partnership a reality.   I’ve spent the last 6 years in the collaboration industry and without a doubt, Jive is the leading company and product with the biggest vision for the future.  It’s a true privilege to work with such a high caliber team.

DocVerse Launches!

After 2 years in the making, today marks the official launch of DocVerse!  When Alex and I left Microsoft, our vision was to build a product that would fundamentally improve the daily lives of users of Microsoft Office — the most popular productivity suite in the world, with nearly 600 million users.  Specifically, we and our coworkers were personally frustrated by the constant back-and-forth email attachments required to share and edit Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents.  We were convinced that there had to be a better way!

And today, we are pleased to announce our first contribution toward that solution with the launch of DocVerse.

DocVerse is a plug-in for Microsoft Office that turns those applications into full-fledged, Web-enabled, collaboration tools.

DocVerse quickly and easily plugs into Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel, enabling truly painless, real-time sharing and simultaneous, group-editing of documents.

Give it a try (it’s free for 60 days!) and let us know what you think.

We’d love the feedback and would appreciate any suggestions that would help make DocVerse better for you and the rest of our users!
