Superior End-User Experience

Because Zimbra is compatible with all major platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) and Web browsers (IE, Safari, Firefox, Chrome), it enhances user experience and eliminates the costs of support and training. Its supreme functionality lies in the fact that it is browser based, allowing for smoother interaction; offers user-friendly filters that can be customized; feature-rich when it comes to compose, copy and paste. The task of managing emails in bulk, multiple calendars and an extensive contact list is no longer daunting.


Reduced Administration and Maintance

The simple web-based administration console enables IT admin to access the application from anywhere, at any time, in a secure manner. Managing the access and policies of a diverse set of users in a large organization is now easy via the console. End users can also empower themselves through the self-service administration, thereby easing their dependence on IT admin, reducing support overheads and increasing their personal user experience.
