The history of Zedi explorers

Posted by Amy Thibault on Oct 25, 2018 9:50:00 AM

I'm the first to admit it; I was not the best history student in school. The very mention of historical events made my eyes instantly glaze over. I felt (at the time) that anything historical somehow didn't matter to me since it was sooooo long ago, and my experiences were completely independent from the people and events involved. My complete disconnect and ignorance at the time completely baffles me now.

Thankfully, I have since realized that if you don't have a complete understanding of history, you're bound to repeat the same mistakes over, and over again. When you take that same principal and apply it to the historical successes you can also begin map your strategic future.

The human element is the biggest part of cyber security

More and more of our clients are concerned about their own data security, and rightfully so. Hardly a week goes by without the announcement of some huge data security breach.

And for those who use our automation and remote monitoring solutions, they’re concerned about Zedi’s security—because our systems are connected with theirs.

So it’s legit for companies to be concerned about the security of anyone who’s connected with their system.

Why I love ZIP Codes.

Posted by Jeff Edwards on Jul 27, 2017 2:08:27 PM

I’m a proud Canadian but yes, I love ZIP codes.  Let me tell you why. 

One day in September 1988, I rode my ten-speed bike to the doors of a brand new company  called Zedi.  Actually, it was “Z.I. Probes” (Z in Canada is pronounced “Zed”).  I met the founders, they interviewed m e, and  they offered me a computer engineering job.  When I asked them why they called the company Z.I. Probes, they told me that it was memorable like “ZIP code” .  It certainly was.  Read More

5 things that can change your world (and why we love them!)

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jun 12, 2017 10:48:02 AM

In the kitchen of each Zedi office we have powerful words adhered to the walls.  At first glance they are striking, with bright colors, but those words are no beautiful accident.  They are there by design.  They aren’t just words to the Zedi community.  They’re the Zedi Values.  We don’t simply have these values, we live our values.

We’re exposed to them every day, hold each other accountable with them, make decisions based around them, and we make sure our customers know our values to make sure they align with their goals.
