Over the years, the zlien community has grown significantly. As we head into the fourth quarter of 2017, our customer base is continuing to grow with construction companies spread across all 50 states.

Some of those customers are smaller shops with just one person in the office using the zlien platform. But others are medium to large businesses with many different team members and stakeholders that are using the platform. Some of these larger customers also have multiple locations, and may do business on regional or even a national basis.

(As a side note: Since many of our active customers have multiple users on the zlien platform, we actually have many thousands of users logging in to the zlien every day.)

We wanted to take a minute to give some advice to the members of our community that have multiple users or stakeholders actively using their zlien account.

And the User Success team is always looking to pass along best practices - really, any information that will help you leverage the zlien platform to do your job better, faster, and easier.
