  • Send a message, share photos, videos and files, start a conference call or start a push to talk channel

Powerful Group Chat Capabilities

Zinc Groups seamlessly connect employees across the organization. As new teammates join or experts are brought into groups, all chat history is visible so they can get caught up and jump right in.

  • Hotline Groups
  • Official Groups
  • Ad Hoc Groups
  • Hotline Groups

    Hotline Groups allow users to send a message to a Zinc group without being a member of that group. Employees leverage Hotline Groups when they need to talk with a specific type of person, such as a product expert or someone in HR, but don’t know who that specific person is.

    • Bypass long call queues with an Expert Hotline Group that anyone can message into for help
    • Use all modes to solve the problem in a dedicated conversation and bring in any other team members who could be of help
    • Track resolution times and view productivity reports in the Zinc Admin Console
  • Official Groups

    Official Groups form the foundation of your organization’s communication structure and can be created manually or synced from your corporate directory.

    • Set up Official Groups around specific topics, teams, regions, departments, products, events, projects, and more
    • Choose open or restricted group membership to control access to the group
    • Export group messages at any time
  • Ad Hoc Groups

    Ad Hoc Groups can be created freely by anyone in the organization and aren’t managed by an administrator.

    • Create group chats on the fly for short-term projects, cross-department collaboration, and social conversations
    • Custom controls allow users to name groups, mute push notifications, add members, export the conversation, and leave the group
    • Reduce the noise in the Official Groups by creating an Ad Hoc sub-group

Group Management

Managed group chat software

From the Admin Console, administrators can manage Official Groups as well as track Ad Hoc group creation. Three different Admin tiers within the Admin Console allow for organized, scalable administration of Zinc Groups.

  • Set data retention settings, add and remove users, and specify whether a group is open or closed
  • Assign Org Admin, Team Admin or Broadcaster rights
  • View Group Analytics to understand how employees use groups to share information
