Introducing Zest I/O - Zeynel Badak...

We're delighted that our long-standing friend, associate and manufacturing guru Zeynel Badak has set up Zest I/O to help manufacturers embrace the digital revolution...

At ZEST I/O, our mantra is "facilitating and enabling your digital transformation". 

We provide modular, agile, simple and tailored Cloud based business software such as ERP, MRP and CRM for our small to medium sized companies in manufacturing and service sectors.

 Our software is accessible via laptop, tablet, phone, etc. without the need to install an application, software or database. All you need is Internet connection and a Web browser on your device.

 Standard modules include CRM, purchasing, inventory, manufacturing, project management, time-sheets, repairs and invoicing.

Built on the latest Web technologies, we tailor our cloud based software solutions, making them adaptable and cost effective according to the needs of our customers. 

 Complementary to our cloud based software solutions, we also deliver consultancy services, helping our customers on their business process improvement and system implementation projects and getting the maximum from their investment.

Supporting our Clients - Coronavirus COVID-19

We will continue to support our clients to the fullest extent that we can:

 

  • Our telephone answering service on 01325 627070 will continue to be manned from 0830-1800 Mon-Fri. They can patch calls through to home numbers and mobiles, and/or pass on messages via email and text as required. Outside of these hours, any voicemail messages are usually relayed within minutes to our on-call mobile numbers.

 

  • Our consultants and trainers are now operating from fully-equipped home offices.

 

  • In addition to continuing to provide project documentation via shared online folder(s), we have invested in GoToMeeting* software so that we can continue to support clients remotely. This not only offers video conferencing and chat messaging, but also the ability to share screens and applications, keyboard and mouse operation. We find that in many instances this facility is at least as effective as face-to-face meetings and on-site training workshops.

 

 

If you have any queries or if there’s anything that we can help with, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Your 2017 Business Goals - Cus, Bus and Us

For some of our clients 2017 will be their best year ever. They're keeping it simple, focusing on the vital few, and improving something every day. Instead of a wish list of New Year Resolutions, they've set "SMART" objectives and they're using the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle to keep on improving. They're focusing their efforts in three areas - Cus, Bus and Us (benefits for the CUStomer, for the BUSiness, and for US - the employees). Here's a quick guide - published on LinkedIn - to applying this thinking in your own business:
