We use Confluence to provide a documentation portal for our customers. Zen gives us a polished, professional look . . . Zen is by far my favorite Confluence plugin. The staff at Stepstone is great to work with too. They're very responsive and lots of fun to work with.
Awesome. Great. Beautiful are the words that come to mind when thinking of the Zen Foundation plugin. I really love how easy it is to create a beautiful site around Confluence. This truly makes the usability of Confluence better for all people, whether they are engineers or business people.
Anyone who looks at Zen will be blown away at how good Confluence can look. With Zen, Confluence is the best-looking collaboration / knowledge mgmt / wiki platform available. I'm also a fan of how it improves Confluence's blogging feature and no longer think about switching to Wordpress.
Stepstone provided great support and documentation, and tackled our cross-platform security issues by developing custom components and services that communicate between heterogeneous servers.

Zen Foundation is a must-have for any Confluence platform that wants to harness the power of a non-geek user base. Whether you are looking to drive more traffic to your instance, increase your existing users comfort in the submission process, or expand your user base, you need this plugin.

This plugin revolutionised my site, with a look and feel that was so much better than previously available. My userbase approved enormously and my admin staff love the power and ease of page creation and editing. The Zen team is friendly, funny, and professional. I could not be happier with them.

Zen took considerably less effort than originally planned and ultimately produced a superior user experience.
Stepstone integrated our five separate organizations under one wiki, surpassed our complex branding and design goals, added critical custom behavior, and made it eye-catching and easy for us and our supporters to use.
After many wasted hours, I found Zen. Within minutes of installing I found many wishes fulfilled (and other cool stuff I didn't even think about) and have a beautiful easy-to-use and easy-to-administer site. Thank you for my new found ZENness! (And for the awesome customer service to boot. As a software CSR myself, I was really impressed.)
