Some of the templates to choose from are Event Planning, Sales/CRM, Recruiting, Product Development, Project Management, Customer Support, and more. Another option to build an application is by the Forms Builder, which can be created with simple drag-and-drop of components such as text fields, buttons, and presentational text area. Another way to deploy a cloud-based solution is to import existing data in a spreadsheet and edit online.

Outdated tools to manage data such as spreadsheets hinder rather than help. Off-the-shelf solutions often force businesses to fit the software and not the other way around. Zengine empowers people to build quickly and easily the right application for their unique needs. It also has advanced features, APIs and plugins for customization and expansion. Its ability to attach events, tasks, files, and comments to any data makes it more flexible.
Zengine is built by WizeHive, a privately held computer software company based in Conshohocken, PA, USA. It was founded in 2008 by Michael Levinson and Mike Carson, who is also the current CTO. The company started out as an enterprise messaging and task management web application . Even during its beta, it received good feedback of its powerful front-end drag-and-drop functionality. It had $100k seed funding in 2009 and received $980k angel investments in 2010. Also, in 2010, it launched a new tool to help organizations manage applicants, which later evolved to Select, the company’s flagship product for application process management. In 2013, it received another round of funding of $1.5M.
