Using Zinc, businesses can instantly communicate important or time-sensitive pieces of information to the entire company, facilitate connections and sharing between employees in the field, and make sure that management has immediate visibility into what's happening on the front lines.

Earlier this week, Zinc announced a Series A2 funding round led by a strategic investment and partnership with GE Ventures, including participation from Hearst Ventures.

Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across five categories according to the number of Bay Area employees. The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices. Zinc was one of 130 winners chosen from a pool of nearly 550 applicants. For the full list of the San Francisco Business Times' "Best Places to Work" 2017, visit:
