"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.

ZINFI is used as the portal platform for working with one of our main business partners. Use of the portal is efficient, effective, and very user-friendly. 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.
