How does ZelloWork differ from the free consumer Zello app?

ZelloWork Push-to-Talk is a better option for businesses and organizations because it provides more control, more security and assigned group channels. ZelloWork offers the following services:

ZelloWork Services Details

 Private network

A secure and private network with full control over who can access the network and which users communicate with each other within your network.
Secure We offer the highest level of security using RSA 1024-bit for authentication, digital signatures, secure media session keys exchange and AES 256-bit encryption for audio. TLS for control traffic encryption between Zello clients and Zello servers is also offered.

Dedicated servers

ZelloWork operates on a physically separate network of servers that are specifically sized to meet the capacity needs of businesses. The consumer Zello app, on occasion, may be affected by peak usage that can be unpredictable.
On-premise option Host ZelloWork on your own local WiFi or LAN network for ultimate control and privacy. The server option is intended for clients with need for maximum security, located in remote areas with little to no internet connection, or clients with existing servers hosting all other software components.
Management console A web-based management interface to allow businesses to configure and control users and channels. It also shows user status at-a-glance and account management features.
LMR integration ZelloWork includes a gateway solution that lets you to seamlessly integrate your existing two-way radio network and smartphones.
Location Tracking The management console offers a real-time mapping feature which displays user's current location on OpenStreetMap, device battery level, and speed of travel. A Premium Map upgrade adds Google Maps and traffic services, along with Location History (bread-crumb trail).
Message Vault ZelloWork makes all voice messages, photos, and text enabled call alerts easily accessible from the management console. This is an optional feature, with an additional cost.
User Roles Allows administrators to choose who their users can hear and speak to within a channel. Driver and dispatch roles can be created, so drivers do not have to hear each other within a channel to reduce noise and distractions while driving. Broadcast channels can be created to make important announcements, without having everyone reply within the same channel.
Technical support Our customers have 24/7 access to a dedicated technical support team.
Windows Mobile support We support Windows Mobile CE as well as Windows Embedded Handheld devices, making it easier to use existing mobile scanners as push-to-talk devices.
Crosslink ZelloWork channels can link to other ZelloWork channels that are not in the same organization or network. For example, your company's channel can link to a third-party or vendor's ZelloWork channel.
API/SDKs Windows, iOS, and Android SDKs are available to simplify use between multiple apps, and to integrate ZelloWork within your own app. The server side API is available to anyone with a ZelloWork account.
