Zeal Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in Social Software and Collaboration

Gartner Cool Vendor

Gartner named Zeal a Cool Vendor in their Cool Vendors in Social Software and Collaboration, May 2017 report (see the report here). We are very excited and appreciate any outside recognition of our mission and product!

Teamwork and collaboration are profoundly important to the success of any company. Our focus on providing our customers with visibility into their culture’s health also provides insights on how their teams are performing.

Specifically, we measure what behavioral psychologists call “motivators”. If you have read books by Daniel Pink, Martin Seligman, Simon Sinek, or many others, you will quickly recognize what we measure. We examine five areas of your organizational culture: morale, relationships, autonomy, mastery and purpose. More on the topic of motivators in a separate blog post. The Gartner report in particular focused on transforming the contextual and motivational aspects of collaborative work. “Each vendor leverages different techniques that: Enhance people’s situational awareness about what’s going on, improve the collection, organization and updates of content, gauge the level of enthusiasm of those involved in the work effort.”

What better way to enhance people’s awareness by providing visibility and transparency into their organizational culture? For example, some of our customers find they receive critical feedback on their executive team’s communication. Sometimes the feedback is about frequency, sometimes quality of communication and other times the feedback about what is being (or not being) communicated. Once we have identified those challenges for our customers, they can take the necessary steps to improve their culture. In this example, communication is critical to enhancing people’s situational awareness.

We create ways to capture insights from your organization. We do this via our chatbot, Ava, who collects anonymous feedback from your employees. Ava’s ability to interact and engage with your employees increases response rates, so that you collect more information about how your team is doing. See our product in action. Or, give it a try!

We believe you will find that the real-time and interactive way we engage with your employees will provide you the visibility and insights to create positive change in your organizations, just like our existing customers already have!
