JOSE BAUTISTA

It's our business email platform.

2018-03-31

We have control of the entire service and it allows us to function efficiently and quickly.

Pros

Using the ActiveSync protocol allows communication in real time, the emails are "push mail" on all devices.

Cons

There is no way for the graphical administration interface to see the emails that are arriving and which is coming out, for purposes of tracking any particular activity with a user, it is difficult to do so quickly.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a very useful communication tool that groups several functions.

2018-05-25

The planning of activities as well as the contact information of the different employees is centralized through this program.

Pros

The biggest advantage offered by Zimbra Collaboration Suite is the ability to communicate with other users by integrating various tools such as email, contact book, task planning and calendar in a single software and with a very simple interface.

Cons

Although Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a great software, sometimes it presents operating problems that are resolved by closing and opening the browser from where you work.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a great software that allows us to be communicated effectively.

2018-05-30

Zimbra Collaboration Suite has brought me many benefits professionally speaking.

Pros

To have a list of contacts, a tool to plan activities, a calendar and most importantly: email service, covers all my needs at a professional level.

Cons

I really do not find major flaws in this software. For a low price I think it covers very well the needs that can be presented to us in an office to keep communications.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite groups the functions that I need in a software to plan and communicate

2018-07-13

With Zimbra I have improved substantially with respect to task planning and communication with my team.

Pros

One of Zimbra's positive aspects is that it offers e-mail, calendar, contact book and tasks in a single software, so I should not install other applications to enjoy these tools. Its interface is simple, facilitating its use for anyone who uses this program for the first time.

Cons

From the aesthetic point of view it could improve its interface.

Personally, I prefer Microsoft Exchange email, especially for the download of attachments.

Pros

The general presentation menu is quite friendly to the eye., as well as its versatility to be used in cell phones.

Cons

The tricky process associated with downloading attachments compared to emails such as gmail or firefox.

Easy and quick installation, lots of good features.

2018-02-08

Pros

I like the easy installation and the web administrative console which can be used for many admin tasks.

Cons

Hard to customize the installation, lost data when I needed to migrate to another server. The API uses XML-RPC which is not easy to use, JSON is a lot easier.

Its a good product with low cost on-premise mailing and collaboration suite!!

2018-04-17

It has the flexibility to provide mobile base, thick client and thin web base client.

Pros

It has very good Web base UI which is very easy to use.

Cons

The support is a bit so so maybe because of change of so many owners of the company. The web ui can use skin option to make it look and feel like different email platform in the market, e.g. if someone is use to outlook or gmail ui then a them/skin could provide that

Free version lacks features and cloud (payed) version is too expensive

2018-07-01

Pros

In the company we all remember Zimbra. It left us with a really good impression. It had nice features that other "better" ones don't have like batch mail forwarding or delayed email sending. I would use it again.

Cons

Unfortunatelly, it did not integrate well enough with our mobile devices (cellphones and tablets).
