What are the Benefits of Zimbra Email and Collaboration Server?

Every organization has access to basic email or a standard email server, but fewer have shared calendars- and fewer still mobility or document management. That’s a serious loss of potential productivity- and often legacy platforms contribute to this imbalance by presenting complexity and financial obstacles relegating most organizations to limited functionality.

Next-generation platforms like Zimbra Email and Collaboration Suite offer solutions to these and many other common pain points by providing innovative features for end-users and IT administrators at lower total cost-of-ownership (TCO).

Zimbra’s Innovative End-User Experience

Delivering a powerful and more flexible web-based experience is a major component of the Zimbra mission. Traditionally, email has been largely a client-focused experience on a single desktop (which is fine for some users) but can limit productivity (fewer features, no anywhere access, not cross-platform). Zimbra’s AJAX web experience liberates end-users by providing the best of both worlds (looks like a client but works on the web).
