Kaizen Approach Empowers its Internal and External Team with Soonr Secure File Sharing
CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Soonr, a leading provider of secure
file sharing and collaboration services for business, today
announced that Soonr Workplace
Enterprise has been selected by Kaizen
Approach, Inc. to provide secure, mobile file collaboration for its
distributed workforce of expert consultants. The virtually-based
consulting organization selected the Soonr
solution for its ability to provide secure document collaboration that
supports multiple mobile devices and granular permissions for efficient
project sharing between both internal and external resources.
Kaizen Approach, Inc. is a specialized consulting organization and
Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business that delivers Instruction
Systems Design, Program Management, Systems Integration, QRC,
Information Assurance and Network Engineering services to organizations
across multiple vertical industries. Offering short and long-term
consulting contracts for commercial and government clients. As a
fast-moving, virtual team, the expert consultants at Kaizen Approach
need documents to be easily accessible from laptops and mobile devices
as they work in client locations or on the road. With a small staff that
operates remotely and an expansive network of external consultant
resources, Kaizen Approach required a document collaboration solution
that would support the dynamic needs of its unique business, especially
as it continues to grow to serve an expanding list of clients.
"We needed a file sharing solution that would deliver the security,
rights management and intuitive file structure our teams required," said
Melissa McCoy, Chief Technology Officer Kaizen Approach. "Because our
consultants are always working remotely, support for mobile devices is
also critical. They need to know that the information they need is right
at their fingertips, on whatever device they have handy."
The Kaizen Approach team tried other document collaboration solutions,
but found that they didn't offer the level of security they required.
Much of the information Kaizen Approach team shares is highly
confidential and any exposure to risk simply wasn't an option.
Consumer-oriented file sharing services simply didn't offer the
sophisticated level of security and permissions management that would
give Kaizen Approach the peace of mind it needed.
To meet its unique document collaboration requirements, Kaizen Approach
surveyed the market to identify its options. With specific requirements
for stringent security, multiple mobile device support, simple file and
folder structuring, and rights management for folder sharing with
external team members, the consultant firm found that its options led
them directly to Soonr and the Soonr Workplace Enterprise solution.
Soonr Workplace Enterprise enables the Kaizen Approach team to view
their business at a glance. With an integrated dashboard that provides a
quick view to all recent activities and files, users have ready access
to the company's most current information, no matter where they are.
Files and projects may also be accessed on the go by any major
smartphone or tablet with support for over 40 different document types,
without having to download the file. Users can even edit Microsoft (News - Alert)
Office documents directly on their tablet without having to download a
third party application.
For Kaizen Approach's external team members, folders within a project
can be shared at a granular level for true rights enforcement and
easy-to-manage rights restrictions. With a simple file structure and
search functionality, users are also able to navigate the solution with
little or no training or support. All of this is delivered with the
protection of 256-bit AES encryption, during both transit and storage,
inactivity session timers, password and Time-to-Live protection for all
public links to Projects, folders and files and easy to manage
permission policies for both Projects and Shares.
"With Soonr we never need to worry about document security," said McCoy.
"It gives us all of the security features we need without the
complexity. Now I know we can keep pace with our growth without any
"At Soonr, we know that even though today's businesses are increasingly
mobile and virtual, they still require enterprise-class security and
information availability," said Victoria Grey, chief marketing officer,
Soonr. "With Soonr Workplace no business needs to compromise. Just like
Kaizen Approach, any business can achieve their secure file sharing and
collaboration goals while benefiting from the added value of mobile data
access, flexible rights control and automated sync functionality. It's
virtual teamwork, perfected."
