Founded in 1985 in the heart of Tuscany as a Software House. The innovative spirit of its founder Fabrizio Bernini, now CEO, allowed the company to quickly establish itself in the international markets of robotics, automation and renewable energy.
In 2000 ZCS became part of Zucchetti SpA, an Italian and European leader in ICT.
Today the company stands out for its SMART & GREEN innovative solutions that integrate the most advanced technologies.
To improve the quality of life of people and support the development of companies with the intelligent use of eco-friendly technology. To combine creativity with technological innovation.
The idea is to diversify its business and create solutions and products that did not exist until now, but that can improve and simplify the everyday life of customers and support the digitalisation activities of companies while respecting the environment and business ethics. ZCS creates integrated hardware and software systems that learn and act in an “intelligent” manner.
We must not tire of being VISIONARIES and of continuing to see something that does not (yet) exist in reality. The Next Generation, technology, sustainability and the circular economy are at the heart of tomorrow’s business. “WE THINK THE UNTHINKABLE" in order to build a sustainable future!
Fabrizio Bernini - CEO of ZCS Spa

ZCS is also strongly committed to the world of young people who represent the future of the company, and to their education (by supporting the projects of technical schools in the area, such as the ISIS Valdarno) so that they can get the best training in order to face the job world with knowledge, competence and culture. In fact, ZCS has supported a digital restructuring project within the technical training centre for young people in the “Valdarno” State Institute of Higher Education and is a sponsor of the Aretino University, with the aim of cultivating young talent at home, to encourage the growth of new professionals in the field of digital technology.
A founding member of ITS Prodigi, a new post-diploma course of high-quality training in ICT and digital competences, ZCS also supports traditional social and cultural events in neighbouring municipalities. It collaborates with non-profit and ONLUS associations for charitable and social initiatives dedicated to local families.
The “ZCS Education” project was created with the aim of spreading the culture of innovation in the company and also in the fields of digitalisation, business intelligence, robotics and renewable energy.
