My company has been testing an internal deployment Jive Messenger for a while now, and the technical side is great. However, upper management is getting very antsy, and is inclined to kill the project - they’'re generally conservative and worried about everything under the sun (liability, productivity, etc.)
I’‘ve made all the appropriate arguments, and they’‘ve gotten a fair hearing. What would really[/b] help, though, would be a few examples of comparable firms (we’'re a mid-size professional services company) that are happily using some sort of enteprise-IM solution (preferably Jive, but I guess anything would do) and have a good experience with it.
Basically, our COO challenged me to find an upper exec he can call and get a good review - otherwise, he’‘s inclined to kill it because it’'s a risk.
If anyone knows about (i.e. works at) a firm that I might be able to point to as an example, which has deployed Jive without the corporate sky falling, please shoot me a private message.
Thanks in advance!
