The Mission of Zinc’s Systems

Zinc’s mission is to help customers protect what matters to them.

Founded in 2004, we are a privately-owned Software as a Service company that delivers trusted security and safety platforms to enterprise and public sector organisations. The business has enjoyed year on year growth, 60+ staff and has a strong UK footprint as well as international reach.

Our growth strategy to date has been focused on client retention and product development as we have aligned ourselves with our clients so that we are informing their roadmap as well as them informing ours. This collaborative approach has led to a number of awards in partnership and application of new technology. As a company, our Synapse product is leading the field of safety and security incident management. We are able to deliver differentiation to our clients across three key sectors – Government, Corporate and Retail.

Division Overview:

We are known as leading web technology innovators. We have invested many years into developing our own technology platforms and these now power some of the UK’s largest organisations, Government and SME customers.

The technology division has undergone significant growth in recent years and we see this as being a huge area of further expansion for Zinc moving forward. We have a culturally diverse team with a reputation for using innovative, collaborative working practices; operating in a SaaS environment to provide our market leading Synapse product range that assists organisations in gaining actionable insight, optimising decision making, profit protection, reducing response times, and significantly improving communications between staff and stakeholders.
