If you're tired of using 20 year old technology and the high cost of $$$$ spent on Microsoft's outdated technology; then switch your business, educational institution, non-profit (501c3), or government agency to Google's Apps.

Google Apps provides communication and collaboration tools such as e-mail, messaging, and team sites as well as calendar management, document creation, spreadsheet manipulation and the best personal search engine in the business.  Your entire organization will be able to share information and ideas faster and easier than you can imagine!

The best part... there's no hardware to maintain, no backup tapes to fuss with or expensive administration costs.  The entire application is delivered securely over the internet so that your tools and data are available at work, home, school - even the local coffee shop - anywhere where there's an internet connection and it's all powered by Google!  Additionally, Google's new offline synchronization allows access to your data even when you don't have a connection to the internet.  

Educational institutions and registered non-profits (501c3) get a special bonus - free!  Google provides a full featured educational version devoid of advertising to everyone in your organization at no cost .

If you're a business or government agency, Google has you covered with a low price $50 per user per year for all the Google Apps collaboration tools.

Stop attaching and start sharing!

Continuous improvement in people and process is the goal of any manager and education is the key to continuous improvement success.

A favorite saying is, "you don't know what you don't know".  Meaning that without knowledge, your continuous improvement efforts flounder.  There are two methods for gaining knowledge to drive continuous improvement - either the tough road of experience which has it's ups and downs or education which provides a guiding path from others experiences.

Time and time again, good people, teams, companies, and organizations flounder or circle around the mountain when there's an easier path.  Educational material is available, intentions are good, but it seems that nobody has the time in our busy work and home environments.

By providing small group educational services, Your team can be lead through the desired subject matter in a delivery style that effectively communicates the source material and develops stimulating interaction among the participants.

Additionally, if you've developed a new application for your customer, expertise is available to develop the presentations, documentation, and coursework for your sales, implementation, and training needs.

Stop floundering and start improving!

Business Process Review and Consulting

    * systems design and architecture
    * performance evaluation
    * process documentation
    * lean thinking


People, process, utilization of technology, and knowledge are the keys to generating a competitive system that wins - not just once - but again and again to build a successful dynasty.

Every business team wants to get there; but somewhere along the way our attention is diverted to fighting fires and we get stuck in the quagmire of problems, rotating staff, overly complex solutions, and outdated technology.  The business focus is lost among the trees instead of seeing the forest.

That's where Zingodia Systems can help.

Our consulting service provides a complete business process review by listening, developing documented process flows, and evaluating performance of the entire system.  Then we architect a solution by putting into practice lean thinking whereby a system solution is focused on customer value and eliminating waste.

Our goal is to provide a system solution that uses less effort overall, consistent process, proper technology, and shared knowledge in a winning team environment.

Stop fighting fires and start winning!

Change Management

    * implementation planning
    * solution education & application
    * systems review & validation
    * iterative/continuous improvement


Overcomplexity occurs when processes get put into place to solve independent problems instead of complete system solutions.  That's why at Zingodia Systems we like to keep things simple and strive for aggressive iterative change to continuously improve the overall business with a focus on the complete end to end system.

The powerful cycle of plan, do, check, act popularized by Dr. Deming provides an iterative process for carrying out change with tornado like effectiveness whereby the completion of one improvement is a catalyst for the next.

During implementation planning we study the system and recognize opportunities for improvement at which time a plan is initiated and measurable goals are defined.  Education of the solution is paramount for a successful pilot roll-out (we try to work with small teams prior to a large scale deployment which would be part of the iterative process) where we test the change and apply small iterative improvements.  A system review and validation against our original goals defines the success of the pilot and the need to derive a modified plan or to implement the current plan across the enterprise.  Either way, lessons learned become the catalyst for a new group of system improvements.

Stop standing still and start moving!

Project Management

    * dynamic leadership
    * team collaboration
    * project documentation
    * risk analysis & control


Zingodia Systems can provide the necessary leadership to drive your organization's team through the process to identify opportunities, generate implementation plans, define measurable goals, implement change, provide education, and validate success.

Collaborative knowledge and project documentation throughout the project is critical to a successful implementation. Through the utilization of Google Sites or Microsoft Sharepoint, team collaboration and documentation efforts are centralized and a repository of knowledge is built, maintained, and archived for reference purposes.

Every project has risks and we will work with your team to identify potential risks and generate appropriate plans for coordinated methods to mitigate negative effects.  During each project team meeting, all risks will be identified and cooperative solutions will be engaged as a risk response.

Stop worrying and start doing!
