In this use case, we are going to tell you about our colleagues from Evozon who deployed their own online collaboration environment based on Nextcloud-ONLYOFFICE integration.
Evozon is a Romanian software development and consulting agency located in the heart of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca. Established in 2005 as a Java and Perl development center, the company gradually expanded its areas of expertise to include .Net, PHP, Python, and mobile solution development for Apple iOS and Android.
Evozon has quickly grown ever since, creating enterprise class applications and mobile apps for companies of all sizes where performance, scale, security and user experience are of equal importance.
Ioana Vantu, Head of IT Department at Evozon, explains:
Having the right system engineers in-house we have the capacity of hosting on-premise email servers, so there is no need for using cloud providers like Google or Microsoft.
Being certified ISO 27001 for information security, we wanted an on-premise solution for document sharing and real-time document editing as an alternative to the solutions offered by the public cloud providers in order to reduce cost and have control over company documents.
At the beginning stages, they deployed ownCloud for document sharing and found out about ONLYOFFICE as a solution for collaborative document and spreadsheet editing that can be integrated into this sync&share platform.
They started with the free edition and rolled it out to a small set of employees. Later on, when the Evozon team saw that the solution was reliable, they deployed it for the entire company. As the free license allows a limited number of simultaneous connections, the company switched to Enterprise Edition with access to pro editing features.
Over time Evozon migrated from ownCloud to Nextcloud and the integration with ONLYOFFICE became even more seamless. Now, when employees need to work or collaborate on a document they use Nextcloud with ONLYOFFICE by default.
Ioana Vantu is glad of the first achieved results:
We absolutely love what we do and it’s shown in our everyday activities. We love creating robust software that provides a great user experience to our partners and clients. As you know, glad employees create happy customers. We offered to our employees an easy and safe way to edit and collaborate on documents. Currently, we are happy with the implemented solution and very likely to recommend ONLYOFFICE to other companies.
