    A new stage for Zyncro 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    The facts

    If you are reading this, you probably already know the good news, and if not, here you have the headline: the Mexican group Desarrolladora Rio Parana has acquired 43% of Zyncro’s shares and so it becomes one of the company’s main shareholders as well as joining its board of directors along with Inspirit and others. You can find all of the related information in the leading Spanish newspapers or various sector specialist websites.

    Given that the information has already been published in the media we will focus on the facts and from Zyncro blog today, we would like to go one step further as a company that boosts corporate communication. Our objective is to express what this new stakeholder reality means to us directly.

    The strategy

    The pinnacle of this process supports one of the company’s main strategies, internationalization. The idea of Zyncro was born in Barcelona around 2008 by Didac Lee who has always had an international vocation and mission: to help companies optimize their internal processes by means of a solution that makes this possible and/or boosts social communication within organizations: an Enterprize Social Network. Now we have an even more international essence about us. The process that began a few months back is now made official thanks to our success in Mexico as well as in all of South America and having awakened an interest in our company within the Parana business group.
    Therefore the objective of our new investors is clear:

    To continue to strengthen our position within the market as the most flexible and adaptable social technological solution responding to the real needs of our clients, to grow our current client base, both in terms of user volumes as well as linking to new business processes, especially via channel sales and overall from a mobile perspective.

    The people

    And for all of this, we rely on a team of people that are dedicated, proactive, and keen to continue giving their very best within a great place to work. They will make the technological consolidation and growth process a reality for the business and structure we initiated over 5 years ago. This new stage will be led by the company’s new CEO Carlos Ramon, a director with a wide range of experience in various sectors, an expert in consolidating organizations in the growth stage and who likes to take a process innovation approach as well as placing trust in employees. As Carlos says, “This is a great opportunity for both the Parana group as well as Zyncro itself to continue creating an attractive and innovative project with huge growth potential and together, we are going to turn the opportunity into a success”.

    As in the life of all young companies, we have endured changes at all levels of the organization and have had to adapt ourselves with the times, so this communication serves not only to transmit our version of the facts but also to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, the work and effort of all of those who have made this milestone possible in the life of Zyncro. You know who you are.

    One of our internal mottos is together #wearestronger. This time we have joined forces with Desarrolladora Rio Parana in order to strengthen everything that Zyncro stands for: commitment, passion, innovation, transparency, communication and collaboration, and that is how we’ll do it.

    Will you join us for this new stage?

    Zyncro partners up with Formanchuk & Asociados, a guarantee for success in enterprise socialisation and innovation in Latin America 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    PertnershipFormanchuckZyncroFormanchuck & Asociados, a firm specialising in communication, collaborative culture and organisational transformation, and Zyncro, the leading Enterprise Social Network solution in the Spanish language social software platform market, have just signed a strategic agreement to mentor Latin American companies on their journey towards process socialisation, innovation and streamlining in their organisations.

    Under the agreement, Formanchuk & Asociados gains a powerful tool which rounds off its range of consulting, mentoring and change management services for enterprises. Its extensive experience united with the most flexible and customisable solution on the market makes for a powerful alliance delivering all-inclusive support to companies looking to take the leap into the culture of collaboration and become social enterprises.

    Lluís Font, Zyncro’s CEO, stresses the importance of further progress in the socialisation of companies in Latin America. ”Implementing an enterprise social network is a necessary step in the evolution of businesses, and like any technology that has a transversal impact in an organisation, it needs proper change management to ensure it is successful”, he says. In his view this alliance is crucial since “partnering Formanchuk & Associates is a natural choice for us because of their experience in developing internal corporate communication programmes, culture creation and measures for innovation, training and organisational transformation.”

    An agreement of this kind is an excellent foil for Zyncro’s corporate strategy. As a provider of a private and secure technology platform with an enormous impact on cultural change in organisations, linking up with fellow professionals means ensuring the success of a project that is not restricted solely to the technological realm.

    The agreement with Formanchuk & Asociados helps boost Zyncro’s presence in Latin America, a region where it has been operating since 2011 with Telefónica. It also adds to Zyncro’s powerful ecosystem of partners through which it is continuing to expand its commercial capabilities and product portfolio worldwide.

    everis and Zyncro to develop professional apps for sharing electronic medical records 

    Estimated reading time: 7 minutes

    • The agreement will make it possible to connect ehCOS suite business community users worldwide
    • Late this year collaborative clinical apps linking the expertise and products of both companies are to be launched

    everis, the multinational consultancy firm, and Zyncro, the largest Enterprise SoZyncro&everiscial Network in Mexico and Spain, have reached an agreement to build communications solutions 2.0 in the health industry. The partnership will generate tools that integrate electronic medical records onto a digital platform where doctors and hospitals can share information and medical opinions in real time irrespective of where they are physically.

    That means the solutions developed by everis and Zyncro will speed up clinical diagnosis using a system similar to that employed in social networks, but equipped with all the latest security and privacy technologies which define Zyncro as an enterprise social network.

    Likewise, doctors will be able to communicate securely and privately with their patients. In addition to reducing the time taken to choose appropriate treatment, this will significantly improve patient engagement.

    Under this agreement everis and Zyncro have synergized their knowledge to harness the power of enterprise social networks and thus improve the way health organisations operate. Using marketing tools, health providers will be able to inform, listen and converse with patients while engaging them and increasing their commitment to looking after their own health.

    The industry is at a key stage in adopting Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and is seeking to take advantage of the impact enterprise social networks and innovation 2.0 are now having on companies and organisations.

    Against this backdrop everis has created its ehCOS strategy, a raft of solutions meeting the challenges of the health industry particularly in terms of electronic medical records. In Zyncro it has found the enterprise social network platform which dovetails with its strategy.

    10 things Zyncro can help you improve in 2014 to add a touch of colour to your company 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes filled with warm Christmas greetings 😉

    1. Develop collaboration not competition. Introduce a more transparent and open way to work where each idea is heard and taken into consideration. The group’s power is much bigger when people can gather their ideas, knowledge and experience and transform it into something valuable for the company.
    2. Give as much as you can to your colleagues and start learning from them. As a manager, you have an important role in developing this culture of sharing in order to create a constant learning environment. Make people learn from others in similar roles. Find experts among your employees and make them share their knowledge to improve their performance.
    3. Transform your employees, partners and collaborators into brand ambassadors. If you make them love their work and what they do for the common project, you will gain their trust. Connect the personal and the corporate: that’s the way you make your company more approachable and it gives employees the power to go out in the real world and social networks to be real brand ambassadors. Recognize them publicly; it will enhance their motivation and engagement, and it can only benefit your company.
    4. Work closely with your team but don’t forget you have an entire community at your reach. Not only your close relationships are important, you can develop valuable knowledge by getting closer to your “weak ties”, i.e. the people you are not close to, and open yourself to new social circles.
    5. Develop flexibility and mobility: Use the appropriate tools to enable your team to focus on objectives rather than the time they spend in the office. Mobility is a characteristic of our new century. People are getting used to the flexibility of communicating whenever and wherever they want, and companies can definitely get some great benefits if its members can remain connected to each other outside the office.
    6. Integrate clients, providers or partners to reach your objectives. Not only the members of the organization possess the knowledge and experience that will make the business perform. Clients are the best people to convey the benefits of your brand. Partners may have experience in markets you are interested in, and providers can help you improve products…
    7. Integrate a social factor in any task and process. In a connected organization, collaboration can have a direct impact on efficiency thanks to social processes. Imagine if sales representatives could see past conversations related to a deal, or if your customer service could get direct help to the product team through the activity stream.
    8. Make each person its own manager, empower your team: Your job is not only to command but also to bring out the potential of the people. As Steve Jobs said: “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do”.
    9. Spread the company values in your team: Successful companies have a perfect harmony between advocated values and those transmitted by the employees. Use your enterprise social network to let values go viral within the company.
    10. Don’t only think tasks, tools and processes, but also Challenges, Passion and Dream.
