Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
After launching WizeHive four years ago and running thousands of annual programs for organizations like the Consumer Electronics Association and Metropolitan Museum of Art, WizeHive today launched the public beta of Zengine - a next generation cloud-based platform that empowers non-technical people to easily build custom business applications, while also giving developers the ability to add integrations and complex functionality as the business demands. Zengine can be used to track all of your important business information, like customers, job candidates, or projects and can replace paper processes, outgrown spreadsheets, or generic software products.
Said WizeHive founder Michael Levinson: “We built Zengine for the business user that needs something more than a spreadsheet, less than a Salesforce implementation, and more tailored to their needs than the generic and single-purpose software products out there right now. The platform requires no coding and is easy to use for the non-technical person, yet can be expanded using specialized plugins built by developers. Zengine is essentially the last platform your business will ever need.”
As business people interact more with technology in their personal life, they have become tech savvy enough to know they can do a better job automating their business processes, but at the same time they do not have the IT resources, nor the in-depth need (and deep pockets) for massive feature-rich platforms like Salesforce. Zengine was created to fill this gap by providing an application development platform that makes it super easy for a business user to build their own custom business applications. “It’s customization without the cost,” added Levinson.
How Zengine Works
For the Business User: Business users can sign up for Zengine and immediately set up their workspace via the pre-configured templates, by using the drag-and-drop form builder, or simply by importing an existing spreadsheet that Zengine then converts for you. The platform has templates for project management, human resources, recruiting, sales, and bug tracking, and includes other built-in features like task management, file sharing, and notifications.
For the Developer: Perhaps the most unique feature of Zengine is how it combines a simple interface for business users with a powerful plugin development environment for developers. For instance, plugins allow developers to extend Zengine by creating custom dashboards, embedding integrations to other products, or adding popup workflow screens with action buttons - all with a minimal amount of coding. Plugins can be private to a specific application or shared in the Zengine Plugin Marketplace (coming soon).
