    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

    At Zyncro we improve each day for our users and for this reason we’ve made accessing your Enterprise Social Network even easier. With this in mind, we believe the moment has arrived to present you with the improvements to the Zyncro App for iPad, so that you can access all of your organization’s information wherever you are.

    According to a study by consultancy company IDC, sales of tablets increased by 254.12% in 2011 with regard to the previous year (a total of 68.7 million units), and this figure is expected to have doubled by the end of this year. Google revealed that the use of tablets peaks in the afternoon-evening, whilst during the day the lead is taken by PCs.

    These figures reveal that PCs and tablets do not compete, but are used together. Whilst PCs take the limelight during working hours, users prefer to navigate using tablets and smartphones during their free time.

    With the Zyncro App for iPad you can:

    • Consult and share information on personal and corporate news, groups and departments
    • Consult and write personal messages
    • Access your organization’s files. Download files and upload new images

    Summertime and tablets 

    Tiempo estimado de lectura: 2,5 minutos

    00:57. I write this post from my sofa at home. I’ve been trying to watch the TV for 20 minutes.  I say trying because there is nothing on that has captivated my attention long enough to end my channel hopping.  I ponder a thought for a moment, that one of the most detrimental effects of DTT is that it has made zapping through the channels and endless task having to go through an infinity of channels, each one more dispensable than its predecessor.  After dithering over a few talk-shows and documentaries, I finally stick with one of the four channels that replay the Champion’s finals.  I’m still not sleepy enough so with the sound of Wembley in the background, I switch on the computer to write the post you are now reading.  And about ten minutes go by when I start to feel very uncomfortable indeed.  I can’t find an adecuate position: sitting down, my knees start sweating with the heat coming from the battery and if I lie down, I run the risk of falling asleep on the sofa and waking up at the crack of dawn with crease marks on my arms.  I put the computer off and go to fetch the tablet.

    I try to find a theme to all of this for the post and begin to formulate a theory on which Steve Jobs invented the iPad on the sofa in his home. According to this risky and possibly absurd theory, the founder of Apple was trying to imagine how to make the MacBook thinner or the iPod smaller, when he began to realize that he was somewhat uncomfortable sitting on the sofa.  And all he did from then on was in answer to this problem he was having which in fact, is the same problem that many others experience.  Henry Ford said that if he had taken any notice of what people said, “I would have created a faster horse instead of the car”.  But he was quite sure that he was not in the business of selling horses, but velocity, the same way Jobs is clear on the fact that Apple does not sell technology but in fact functionality.

    My main job at Poko is to think and to come up with (ideas, strategies…), to share (articles, references…) and to supervise (price quotes, designs…).  Therefore: to think more than to take action.  To say more than to do.  To see more than to produce.  Tasks that increase all of the time and thanks to the growth of the cloud, I can do this from any place, anywhere and at anytime. Even from the sofa during those moments before bed.  But as the summer approaches and the temperature rises, the computer becomes an uncomfortable companion for those sofa-moments because of its size and the heat it generates.  The tablet on the other hand, is the ideal gadget.  It is what most resembles an actual notepad.  A notepad without pages with a window to Internet but still only a notepad at the end of the day.  It allows me to work whilst lying down completely and so, is more comfortable and inspiring.  Anything for company productivity.

    Use Zyncro on your tablet! 

    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes


    Solutions like Zyncro, available not only via the web but also on your iPad or Android tablet allow you to check very important documentation needed in your day to day and allow you to follow the flow of information generated on a daily basis at work or within your network of contacts.  But above all, you can watch your back!

    I can still remember when I started out in the sale of mobile hardware solutions, in one of the leading chains around the year 2002 when Palm and Windows Pocket PC were at war over the PDA market, that in the end have been replaced by the smartphone era and the new Tablet support.

    Now I can see that the problem with the old PDA had been its limited connectivity and that they had been designed for use on internal networks.  This slow data connection as well as the very simplistic applications that had been thought of take the place of the computer were what caused their demand to decrease until the apparition of the new support mobiles called smartphones.

    Later with the improved data connectivity, more economical and better lead screens, components and smaller microprocessorsrobust and fastmore scalable and tested for fault operating systems and the good design brought about by Apple and later Android has led to a totally different scenario full of exciting opportunities.   

    We saw it in the last Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona where Zyncro was also present.  Now in the world of software in cloud, or not in cloud, not having an extension or a mobile version sounds strange to a lot of us.

    It is true that you need to find practical purposes to make the 500 or 600€ that most tablets cost pay off which is why I am going to explain a practical case study in order to help you redeem this cost.

    Why use Zyncro in your tablet?

    I think that the possibility of freeing yourself of papers and documents when you work with clients or even when you have a front line job, it is a good step forward for your organisation and overall for the wellbeing of your back; not having to drag around papers or the classic laptop.

    If you make an observation, there are more executive managers or sales departments with a tablet under their arm every day, in fact, they do not tear themselves away from their new iPad which accompanies them throughout the day and that allowed them to free themselves of the paperwork.  The device is also useful for them to read their speeches on so the documentation that they had been using up until now will soon get dusty.

    Regarding Zyncro, via its folder structure you can securely and in an organised manner upload those work documents needed for a meeting or presentation.

    Zyncro allows these executives take all the documentation under their arm with them, privately check documents online or show them on a projector thanks to the existing vga adaptors.

    For this, all you need is to:

    • Connect to a 3G network or wifi
    • Access the website http://my.zyncro.com
    • Introduce the access details (login and password)
    • Access the work groups to which you had previously uploaded the relevant documentation

    Some examples:

    • You can present very visual product with photographs, you can open Power Point files from your Zyncro space and show this directly on your screen
    • Or follow a meeting agenda with clients or previously defined tasks in Word

    So if from today onwards you would like to leave your paperwork in your briefcase, create an account in Zyncro and in addition to being able to share information via this Intranet 2.0 space with your colleagues, you will also be able to surprise your clients by efficiently presenting the information.
