Operating in 50 countries with more than 5,000 employees, Macmillan Science and Education is a division of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, and has provided high-quality content and services to scientists and academics for more than 170 years.

Macmillan now plans to use Jive's collaboration software to enable employees to find information, share ideas, collaborate on projects and use collective knowledge more effectively.

Stephen Devlin, chief technology officer at Macmillan Science and Education, said: "Investing in Jive is about giving our employees the space they need to connect, enabling conversations to happen and ideas to flow. Greater collaboration is key as we continue to help teachers, students and professors to push the frontiers of learning and discovery."

Employees can collaborate within groups and teams and across businesses, while using Jive as a global directory that makes it easy to find people, information and experience across the group.
