MailJive was founded in 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas, by Mark Doyle, an experienced software developer and consultant to small and medium-size businesses .  Mark moved to New Albany along with his businesses in early 2018.

The mission of MailJive is to help organizations retain knowledge – despite employee turnover being a fact of life. To that end, MailJive’s goal is to provide a service that preserves knowledge, and makes it more easily accessible to employees.

MailJive is a knowledge base that builds itself. Its software is an effortless knowledge-sharing service allows client companies to build a knowledge base as employees communicate using email and Slack. MailJive helps companies preserve and share the institutional or tribal knowledge that is being communicated, which means better real-time documentation than your existing company wiki or knowledge portal, where the information is often lacking or quickly becomes outdated.  In turn, this gives MailJive’s clients the power to mitigate the effects of brain drain.

With MailJive, employees will experience more accurate searching. New hires will see faster ramp-up time. Leaders will be able to make better decisions. Managers and team will feel less anxiety, and client companies will reap the rewards.
