Beginning in 2004, UIS Technology Partners started making mini-cloud environments for their clients that were utilized internally. In 2009 they began to construct an offsite cloud-computing world for one of their customers.
By 2012, Paul began to realize that cloud computing could save his clients more than half on their annual IT spend. He and his partner began to perfect the process of migration to cloud, cloud hosting, and the end-user experience for their clientele. The result was a complete cloud solution that was easy to implement and brought about incredible cost savings.
They quickly realized that this was a product they wanted to make available to other businesses and in 2013 Zooce was born! Zooce is a one-stop shop for migration to cloud, cloud hosting and secure access to business data from any device, anywhere and anytime.
