Synacor Inc. (NASDAQ:SYNC) today announced that its Zimbra open source-based email and collaboration platform is seeing increased rollouts by governments and enterprises globally. In the first half of 2018, there have been more than 230 new deployments of Zimbra, with 110 of those customers added in Q2. Since announcing Zimbra 8.8 late last year, Synacor has continued to add enhancements, including Zimbra Talk V2, updates to Zimbra Briefcase for shared document, spreadsheet and presentation collaboration, and enhancements to storage and security.
With the recent releases, customers can take advantage of new user experience features and tech stack enhancements such as real-time backup, ActiveSync across mobile and desktop, hierarchical storage management and better delegated admin functionality. New rollouts of Zimbra this year include Foxcraft Homes (U.S.), Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (India), Hiwin (Taiwan), Skyora (UK), and ASAL: Algerian Space Agency (Africa).
“Synacor has emerged as an important partner for us as we’ve evolved how we communicate as an organization and consolidated the tools we use to collaborate,” said Davesh Singh Assistant Director at Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). “The company’s continued commitment to innovation around Zimbra with rapid release updates ensures we continue to have the flexibility we need to move as fast as our business demands.”
Zimbra 8.8.8 and 8.8.9, released in April and July 2018, introduced Zimbra Talk V2, an enterprise-level messaging platform inside the Zimbra Web Client, capable of one-to-one and group messaging and videoconferencing, and file and screen sharing. The releases also feature updates to Zimbra Drive and Zimbra Briefcase that include seamless synchronization and sharing of files between users, wherever they are and on any device.
Members of the Zimbra community will meet at Zimbra ACTIV8 Vietnam and ACTIV8 North America to provide input to the future direction of the platform. Key discussions from past events have centered around driving continued adoption, being cloud-friendly in addition to on-premises, offering modern and easily customizable user interfaces and automatically addressing user traffic.
“Zimbra’s success with more than 4,300 customers is a result of our unrelenting commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and a passionate community of channel partners and developers who continue to push us forward every day,” said Marcus Teo, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Sales & Marketing at Synacor.
