"E-mail & document ping-pong." 🏓
Even if you've never heard the term before, you instantly know what it means: endless e-mail threads, countless document versions being sent from 1 person to the next, exploding exponentially depending on the number of people involved 🤯.
A vast problem for which we built ZAZA.rocks, where each bag creates a lightweight folder-in-the-wild enabling fast and safe multi-person document transfers and updates.
Yet this article is not about our solution. We prefer you to try it instead of reading about it 😉. Let's deepdive a bit on the problem instead. Its magnitude is even larger than we imagined as we were building the product.

Our suggestion? Turn it around: power to the user! 💪
