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 infrastructure constraints."

"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."
