Hi Todd, Ryan, Sarah,
Thanks for the responses so far. Todd, I'm looking forward to our Skype call.
To anyone else who is interested, I did find that Jive has done a ton of work to put intranet case studies on their website. You can read the case studies here: https://www.jivesoftware.com/resource-library/?_type=casestudy. Click the “jive-n” box to see the ones focused on the use of their social intranet software.
Interestingly, Jive Software hired a consulting firm to test McKinsey’s conclusions (the 2012 study mentioned above) with their own clients.
Overall, “the researchers found that Jive:
• Improved productivity by 15%
• Grew top-line value by 2-4%
• Reduced email load by 21%
• Reduced meetings by 16%
• Reduced the time to find knowledge, expertise and best practices by 34%"
These are pretty encouraging results.
