Some Zumatech projects
Process Warden turns traditional monitoring on its head by monitoring for success instead of failure
Typical monitoring struggles to identify cases where a process doesn't start, gets stuck or finishes in an unexpected way. Process Warden solves these problems by looking for positive confirmation of success (such as a success email). If it doesn't receive an indication of success exactly as expected then it'll alert you.
Normally you have to choose whether to receive error emails (in which case you're relying on monitoring to detect an error) or get spammed with success emails that you'll eventually become blind to. Process Warden offers the best of both worlds, so you get complete clarity about which processes are working without adding any additional noise.
The biggest technical challenge with Process Warden is ensuring its stability, and so far we haven't dropped a single request or had a single production bug despite monitoring millions of process events.
Version Drop helps you put an end to "final-final-v2.docx" and lets you edit your files with peace of mind
Tracking the most up-to-date version of a file can be painful, and when making big changes it's very common to copy the file first and name it something like 'project-v3-backup-1.docx'. After a while this can become a nightmare to manage and keeping track of which one has which changes is equally annoying. Version Drop solves this by providing a simple, intuitive interface to drop your files before making changes.
It will keep track of every version you upload, and it lets you easily find, share and revert to older versions. You can keep your folders clean and not worry about making big edits, knowing that your latest version is safe in Version Drop.
RiskTalk is a simple-to-use, bottom-up risk reporting application.
It is a cloud based platform designed for the quick and efficient reporting of risks, anomalies and issues via the Reporter app on a smartphone or tablet; completely anonymously if desired. This is linked to the Dashboard which is accessed via a desktop computer (PC or Mac). Once a report is logged, it immediately appears on the dashboard in a Kanban style format that can be utilized by management or a risk team.
It is ideally suited to organizations with significant operational risk, where employees and contractors work across multiple sites and/or are spread across wide geographical locations and has the advantage of allowing full operation where access to a laptop or PC is not practical.
The system has been developed as a result academic research into man-made disasters. The research, conducted by Dr Anette Mikes, formerly of Harvard Business School and now of HEC Lausanne who found that in today’s complex organisations there is a tendency to ‘incubate’ risks which can lead to catastrophic events such as BP’s Deepwater Horizon, the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and the recent Volkswagen emissions scandal
ZESearch is a fast, powerful site search service for websites.
We built ZESearch because we had clients worrying about finding a replacement for Google Site Search as Google has discontinued GSS and it will be completely shut down by April 1, 2018.
This will leave thousands of users without the service. Google does offer an alternative Custom Search Engine (CSE), which is free, however CSE carries advertising which our clients were not very happy about.
From our research, we found other options in the marketplace but, good as they were, they were mostly high-end solutions with high-end price tags and a whole set of features that the majority of GSS users would probably not need.
So, we set to work and created a no-nonsense, fast, efficient, low-cost site search service for their websites, which, at a similar price point to GSS, could offer amazing value for money and a feature set that they needed and made them happy.
We then set about creating a commercial version that web developers could use for their clients to fulfill their site search needs easily and hassle-free.
Contact us and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
