Moxie releases its social enterprise software for free

23rd Apr 2013

Enterprise collaboration software provider has announced it has now made Collaboration Spaces, its employee networking platform, free to use.

Beefing up the competition with rival free platform providers Jive and Yammer, Moxie Software said it distinguished itself in two areas. First, there is no limit on users of time or features and second, enterprises will only need to pay for the service when collaboration is integrated to a specific business process.

Additionally, Moxie users can benefit from resources such as training, webinars, case studies and how-to videos.

Tom Kelly, president and CEO of Moxie Software, said: “Unlike Jive Software and Yammer, we haven’t imposed any limitations on the number of users, features or time of our free product. CIOs should not write a check for Jive Software or any of our competitors without trying Moxie’s Collaboration Spaces.”

Since launching its service as free, Moxie confirmed that 30 enterprises from the financial services, government, IT, marketing automation, media and entertainment and telecommunications sectors have registered to use the platform.

Ray Wang, principal analyst and CEO at Constellation Research, said: “The adoption of enterprise social requires more than technology alone. A combination of design thinking techniques, education, training, and access to best practices significantly improves success.” 

Jive Software’s chief communications officer Amanda Pire told VentureBeat that Jive isn’t threatened by the move. She said: “People pay for what they value which is why Jive has more than 800 large enterprise customers across the world and continues to lead the industry.”

Moxie Software has most recently been making news for strengthening its links with Microsoft. Last month it announced that the integration of Spaces by Moxie with Microsoft’s enterprise communications software, Lync.
