How to Make the Complex Simple
In the last few years the market has developed several standards around managing your software licenses and review processes. We strongly believe in efficiency and that a customer should have a clear understanding of what needs to be done in order to achieve practical results.
Our philosphy is supported by our development of Zyncc. This solution helps you to collect relevant data and communicate with the people responsible, inside and outside your organization. Our smart assessment modules are focused on helping you capture data for multiple software vendors and translating it into relevant and easy to understand information.
Zyncc provides a combination of addressing the right people and asking the key questions in a smart way while allowing you to simplify data gathering within your company. We streamline the communication and synchronize the data flow for all involved. This optimizes interaction flows and combines these with the population of a central repository in a structured way supporting the entire data gathering and interpretation cycle
Here are the three key benefits of our Zyncc platform:
