Zerion Hybrid Cloud (ZHC)

ZHC is a simple, yet innovative concept which gives clients the best of cloud computing and on premise software. With ZHC, the server software is running within our cloud, therefore eliminating any server software maintenance headaches, and ensures you are always running the latest and greatest version of the software. All your proprietary information, including your form design information, is kept in a private database that is securely located within your corporate firewall. ZHC enables us to continue to provide cost effective software as a service solutions (SaaS) while giving you complete control over your data.

Robust iPhone/iPod touch and iPad Client

Creating our first client on the iPhone and iPod touch was an easy decision. Usability and cost were the main drivers. The exZact client truly enhances data collection input with having GPS, photo and sound capabilities in one device. While we have introduced our platform with the iPhone and iPod touch client we are now offering mobile data collection on a native iPad client and will soon be expanding to the Android platform.

Some benefits of the iForm Client include:

  • Increased Productivity

  • Increased Customer Satisfaction

The exZact iFormbulder includes 24+ widgets that include photo, audio, signature capture, multi-select and range controls to name a few. The ability to add dynamic and conditional elements with ZMB along with client validation puts iForm in a class all it’s own.

Works Anywhere – No Coverage? No Problem!

We designed our system to work in optimal or poor conditions. With a native thick client, network coverage is not required to collect data. All data collected is stored locally and can be uploaded to the server when network connectivity is available. Our specialized synchronization logic is designed to work even when network coverage is less than optimal. It works in extreme conditions such as disaster recovery and public events.

Some benefits of a Native Client include:

  • Online or offline data collection
  • Synchronization in spotty coverage
  • Native form rendering
  • Local data cache

Maximum Security

Security is a top priority. With the introduction of the Four layers of security can be configured from the server for different applications. For the most secure requirements (HIPAA, FIPS140-2), the iForm secure client has built-in password protection and local data encryption. All data is communicated with the server through a secure network connection. An optional data wipe can be setup to automatically delete all data when maximum login attempts are exceeded. Encryption and user authentication is designed to resist physical tampering, so even if the device is being jailbroken, data within our application remains safe.

Security features of the iFormBuilder mobile platform and iForm ES Secure client include:

  • Password protected client
  • Secure data transfer
  • Tamper Resistant (Jailbreak Safe)
  • Local and server data encryption
  • Remote data wipe

Massively Scalable

The iFormBuilder mobile platform is designed to handle massive data collection. Utilized during the last presidential election and inauguration, our server is able to handle thousands of concurrent users and hundreds of thousands of pieces of data within a few hours.

The Scalable design benefits:

  • Thousands of concurrent users
  • Real-time data analysis
  • Millions of data points
