The Cloud of ZenShare Suite

The Cloud of ZenShare Suite

Reduce costs, save time, eliminate problems: Cloud mode is suitable for all organizations, small, medium or large, who wish to “outsource” the systemic management of the technological infrastructure.

Continuity of the service

The ZenShare Cloud Suite entirely relieves the customer of all the tasks that are managed by those who manage a server-farm for hosting web-based software platforms. In fact, all activities – both ordinary and extraordinary – related to the management of both the software platform and the technological infrastructure on which it operates are entirely delegated to Interzen and the reference Cloud Service Provider, for their respective areas of expertise.

Interzen, as vendor house owning ZenShare Cloud Suite, acts on different sides simultaneously:

Developing and offer to our customers timely upgrades of all features in ZenShare Cloud Suite in order to correct flaws, increase cyber security, enhance overall usability and add brand new functions and modules;

Constantly monitor ZenShare Cloud Suite cyber security to guarantee highest standards;

Constantly monitor operating conditions of the technological infrastructure of Cloud Service Provider where ZenShare Cloud Suite is working in order to check that service level offered to customers constantly responds to standard agreed in the contracts;

 Coordinate with the Cloud Service Provider to have ordinary or extra-ordinary activities as a support while managing cyber security and the level of service of ZenShare Cloud Suite.

Scalability

The ZenShare Cloud Suite is able to meet the needs of a wide range of types of businesses, from SMEs to large companies.

During the start-up phase, activation times are very short as the software platform does not require any installation, but simple standardized activities:

Analysis of customer needs, collected through interviews and exchanges of information with company contacts, subsequently elaborated by Interzen consultants and structured in a document shared with the customer in order to dissect the customer’s needs in its entirety;

Configuration of the ZenShare Cloud Suite so that, consistent with the analysis document shared and approved by the customer, it can fully respond to the management of data, documents and business processes;

Training for end users of the ZenShare Cloud Suite, through remote / live sessions in which to train users on the use of the software platform for the execution of the business processes shared with the customer in the preliminary analysis document.

Following its adoption in the company, the ZenShare Cloud Suite offers the customer extreme flexibility where there is a change in business needs:

As for the number of users operating on the software platform, the activation and configuration times of new users are very low; just as agile is the online training method through remote sessions (web-conference) to allow new users to be operational in a reasonably short time;

As for the adaptation of the IT resources dedicated to the ZenShare Cloud Suite (modification of the available disk space in the case of Cloud Standard customers, modification of the system resources available in the case of Cloud Premium customers), also in this case the intervention times of Interzen and the changes made by the customer are on average short.
