We started working with VNC when we required to make a complex upgrade of Zimbra to a new major release.
We liked how VNC planned and implemented the upgrade. Your engineers demonstrated us their professionalism, product knowledge and quick response times.”

The Zimbra system is very stable and works reliably. Of course, there is still some need for stabilization for come (self) programmed extensions, but I think this is normal in the software environment.
We currently have just over 38,000 mailboxes. The system moves an average of about 10,000 mails per day to an average of 5 recipients per mail. In the top, 30,000 mails per day or over 10,000 mails per hour are sent.
The system consists of 10 virtual servers running on 4 hardwares servers. All servers (2x 8 core CPUs, 64 GB RAM) are under 10% CPU usage.
Overall, the system needs significantly less support than our previous system.
I would probably build a new system identically.”

Being a strong proponent of Open Source software and believing that the future of storage is not in the classic file sharing server limited to CIFS or SMB or NFS type of file sharing, OwnCloud was a logical choice to provide the storage we use in a way that will grow and adapt. Storage must encompass mobile devices, it must be secure, preferably lightweight and have syncing and be web enabled.
Zimbra and OwnCloud are two of the top open source solutions to fill these needs and the VNCsafe Zimlet is exactly what is needed to seamlessly tie together Zimbra and OwnCloud.
The VNCsafe zimlet ties together the two best pieces of an open source software solution for our Department, Zimbra and OwnCloud, the VNCsafe zimlet was the single missing piece between the two.
The ability to easily attach and save documents from each users OwnCloud storage space within the Zimbra mail web interface is a big increase in productivity and negates the need to pull documents down to local storage before attaching and sending via email. Not only does this reduce the traffic on the network, but reduces the size and maintenance of the user’s machine. We are now evaluating the possibility of providing terminal services to our users instead of stand alone desktop PC’s since Zimbra and OwnCloud are now completely web based with the addition of the VNCsafe zimlet.

In this context, we have come to the attention of the company Virtual Network Consult (VNC), which pursues exactly this approach. VNC’s products build on the leading OpenSource collaboration and communications products, such as Zimbra and Plone, and are combined into a unified interface within a corporate communications and collaboration solution. In a recent workshop, we were able to convince ourselves of the high professional competence of the VNC experts and the efficient methods of agile software development. We also determined how we can implement the integrated product stack combined with our competence in consulting our customers, implementing and operating tailor-made solutions for the scientific community. We see this as a great potential and strive to use these synergies for customer projects selectively in their infrastructure or as a hosted solution, for example from the Open Telecom Cloud (OTC).”

We like the professionalism and the spirit of the individual employees who look after our projects, and are glad to have found a great consulting partner with VNC.”

In particular, the training documents have a high quality.
The only thing I find to be worthwhile are some parts of the exercises. They were sometimes a bit too easy and not so suitable for everyday use.”

An ERPsystem which is used only for sales, accounting and warehouse (finished products), stand-alone solutions (Excel, Access ..) have been used for the areas of purchasing, production and storage (raw materials, semi-finished products). No uniform master data / sources.
The goal is:
A uniform system for purchasing, production and storage (raw materials, semi-finished and finished).
Our assortment includes approx. 2,000 finished products, since we process food we must ensure complete traceability in both directions (expiration date, lot number, batch). The BOMs for our articles are sometimes several pages long.
We looked around the market in order to find a system that best suits our requirements and have come across OpenERP. A big plus for OpenSource is that the software itself does not incur any licensing costs, for an ERP system that is an important criterion. In addition, we wanted to expand a modular system.
Since we are directly at the Swiss border, we naturally also looked for a partner from Switzerland. VNC was / is one of the few partners in both Germany and Switzerland. We have invited VNC to us to introduce themselves and were positively surprised.
The fact that the programmers are in India was absolutely no problem for us.
Our main production site is located in Thailand, so we knew what requirements arise around language problems (technical terms, description of workflows).
During the implementation, we had personal contact with the programmers several times, during the meetings at our production facility in Thailand, we also received positive feedback from the department heads involved.
Their understanding of our processes and implementation is impressive. Much could be simplified. Our contacts at VNC proved very much pragmatism in the implementation of the project.
We would definetely select VNC again.
Something else, please do not be frightened when you describe complicated processes and at the end you hear a simple “yes we can handle it”, you will shortly get a solution that will positively surprise you”
