    The collaborative work revolution is here: Zyncro at Social Now 

    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

    I know of a country of navigators that has been pioneer in discovering new routes of collaboration and communication between countries and cultures. A country that has taught the world that “peaceful” revolutions can also be effective in the change process.

    At Zyncro, in collaboration with Knowman, we are proud to make our first visit to this country, participating in the event Social Now. We want to show our contribution to this collaborative work revolution in businesses.

    Olá Portugal! Let’s zyncronize? :-)

    What is Social Now 2012?

    Social Now is an international event with a unique format, conceived to provide the exclusive insight of world-known professionals who have extensive experience in creating, using, and adopting collaborative tools in business. Representatives from some of these organizations (including Zyncro) will present their tools as a response to business cases defined by the organizers. Furthermore, a panel of independent experts will share their experience and knowledge of the major trends in this field, and will highlight the strategic decisions required to adopt these tools in businesses.

    Where and when is it happening?

    Social Now takes place on June 27 & 28 at Hotel Holiday Inn Porto-Gaía Oporto, Portugal.

    Who is it aimed at?

    Mainly at executives and middle management (from Europe to Brazil) who are interested in discovering the current trends in social collaborative tools, sharing their opinions and solving their doubts with the best professionals in the sector, as well as being a meeting point for networking.

    What will be discussed?

    This congress will discuss issues like:

    Key factors in decision-making when choosing a collaborative tool

    • The social organization

    • The modes of social collaboration tools

    • And there’ll be demonstrations of the tools based on corporate environment scenarios: innovation in companies, collaborative projects, and knowledge management

    For more information, here you have the full schedule of Social Now 2012.

    Join Zyncro at a unique event where we show the use of our enterprise social network as a collaborative tool for your business. Sign up now! Aguardamos a tua presença!

    Many thanks to all of you who have showed interest in this offer and sent us your details and your profiles! Thanks also to everyone who has spread the word on the social networks. We’ve alredy got our Presales Technician 😀

    Zyncro continues to grow… and in a technology company like ours, our sales team is expanding and needs new people. In this case, we’re looking for a presales technician.

    If you want to work in an energetic, flexible, leading, international and multicultural company with a young and modern, dynamic but also intense atmosphere, then you’re the person we’ve been looking for.

    Who are we?

    Zyncro Tech is one of the main start-ups on today’s international technology panorama. We started in Barcelona a little over two years ago and now we have offices in Argentina, Mexico, France, Germany, Brazil, Japan, the United States, and soon we’ll open in the Netherlands, Italy and China.

    Working at Zyncro Tech, you’ll be part of:

    • An innovative environment where you learn something new every day, discover what inspires you and where the path is built on new ideas.
    • A truly international venture, meaning that you’ll discover performance at a global level, learn and participate in the different ways of doing things across different cultures.

    What are we looking for?

    We’re looking for someone for presales who will be responsible for defining functional requirements, analyzing the needs of each customer and/or providing training in the tool Zyncro.

    To do this, you need to have:

    • Fun: From day one, you’ll discover the touch of madness of our team members… that esssential touch needed to make everything run like clockwork!
    • remuneration in line with the responsibilities and demands of the job.

    You’ll find the job offer on Infojobs. However, if you want to contact us by another means on the Internet… We’ll take that seriously into account 😉

    If you’re unsure whether you’re a good consultant and trainer, if you’re not creative, if you’re not a geek, if you can’t speak English, if you haven’t travelled, if you feel unable to commit yourself 100% to the project, please don’t send us your application

    Physical Zyncrocize 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    The Ailment

    It is often said that “when the US sneezes, Europe gets a cold”. Given the current state of things, the saying rings truer than ever. The sneezing from the US NINJA crisis has developed into a full-blown cold in Europe and in many cases, the diagnostic already points to the flu or a nasty pneumonia.

    Yet in this age of globalization, the risk of catching something from the rest is high and this sickness is no longer exclusive to European companies. This flu is already an epidemic and there are many sick companies around the world!

    The Diagnosis

    After many scans and blood tests (company audits), the diagnosis is clear: the crisis and poor organizational habits through the years have confined many companies to their beds. The speech given by the (business) healthcare experts is invariably the same: take an antibiotic for the crisis, but above all, you need to change your work habits.

    I’m not going to tell you what medicine we need take to cure this crisis (I mean, flu), because I’m not a physician. But what I would like to highlight are the healthy habits that companies need to adopt to make their life expectancy higher than the average (or at least, the average).

    The Prevention

    Organizations need to improve productivity to be bigger, stronger and more resistant (to hold out against future “colds”). The world has changed. In his book Knowledge Worker Productivity, Peter F. Drucker gave some tips on the path to follow faced with this new reality , highlighting that the basic resource of today’s society is knowledge and that:

    “knowledge management is an organizational strategy designed to leverage employee knowledge and experience to increase business productivity.”

    This challenge to changeg habits in order to increase productivity will not be possible without focusing on people and their relationships, where collaboration is the key. In short, companies need “physical exercise”, or in other words, to collaborate regularly to improve their immune system.

    At Zyncro, we’re not physicians or pharmacists, but we’ve developed a tool that companies can use to put this healthy habit of collaborating into practice and hence, become more productive.

    Some of our customers see Zyncro as their “sneakers” for running, others as a “racket” for playing squash or a “bicycle” for pedalling… Zyncro doesn’t impose a particular way of use (the tool is flexible), but we do know that companies that use it regularly to work out (collaborate) and this enables them to becomes stronger, to be prepared for any sickness (crisis) that may come and finally, win competitions.

    Crises are opportunities for taking a step back and reevaluating our progress, making changes. Many organizations know they need to improve productivity, but the question is how. Well, the answer is simple: by working out (collaborating) every day. Zyncro provides them with the tool, but it takes the organization to make that step towards change. What about you? Have you signed up for physical zyncrocize?

    Note: Physical zyncrosize is recommended by the best physicians around the world.
