ZINFI has earned a position in G2's leaders' quadrant in multiple consecutive quarters dating back to 2019. G2 rates products and vendors based on reviews gathered from its user community and aggregate data from online sources and social networks. The G2 Satisfaction Score is calculated using a proprietary algorithm that factors in real-user satisfaction ratings from review data, taking into account factors like the recency of a review, the amount of feedback provided, attribution, whether the reviewer is a current user and community engagement with the review. "Once again, ZINI's customers have spoken loudly and clearly, and they're saying they love using our platform and are grateful for the services and the responsive support we provide, While we have consistently performed at a very high level over a period of several years in G2's ratings across all of their criteria, we never take success for granted. We read every G2 review, and we are constantly incorporating feedback and input from our customers through a variety of channels as we plan product improvements for the future.

I personally make use of the "Content Library" feature very frequently. The platform makes it easy to find content and view documents and even play videos directly on the platform. The features on the platform have assisted me in training and educating myself, keeping me up to date on the products from our partner. I also make frequent use of the portal to find reference material and support documentation when supporting clients on the use of the products. Another major use of the portal is to use the resources provided to plan for future projects, especially with large implementations and upgrades of the partner products. I would recommend ZINFI as it makes the use of the portal possible.
