Hello Zimbra Friends, Partners & Customers,
Check out the latest HostingAdvice.com article — Zimbra: A Cloud-Hosted Collaboration Software and Email Platform That Integrates With Proprietary Business Solutions.
Author Jon McDonald interviewed Andrew Shingler, our Senior Solutions Consultant.
“The pandemic certainly refocused the work-from-anywhere concept. Organizations are now asking questions about their IT strategies, including, ‘How do we engage and enable our workforce now that they’re not at their desks?’ It’s a question that Zimbra helps them answer.”
Customers Can See a Significant Decrease in Total Cost of Ownership
Zimbra also highlights that customers have switched from competitors to achieve OpEx savings. One example is Indonesian business conglomerate Gunung Sewu, which upgraded to Zimbra and saw a 50% decrease in total cost of ownership (TCO) and savings of more than $230,000 over five years, according to the company.
“TCO and other OpEx gains are important to the value proposition, but there are a lot of compelling aspects to Zimbra,” said Andrew. “We have an agile development capability where we, or an integration partner, can take a Zimbra customer’s request for a feature or integration and deliver that in record time.”
Meeting Needs in the Profitable On-Prem Market
“Because of Zimbra’s distributed architecture, we get a lot of interest from organizations that do not want data going outside of geographic boundaries, as would happen if they went entirely cloud-based,” he said. “That means they want alternative models like ours, where they can host and run services within the country to secure the sovereignty of their data.”
Zimbra: Changing Value Perception of Collaboration Tools
“There’s been a lot of coverage about the rapid uptake of video conferencing as distributed work teams collaborate remotely during successive lockdowns,” he said. But just about everyone inside Synacor and Zimbra had been using our video conferencing tools for years, except that we didn’t have our webcams switched on — meetings were conducted audio-only.”
