Why use Zenreader and not other tools?

At Leapian, we have spent much time understanding which tasks are value adding and which ones aren’t, when it comes to learning and producing assignments. We have figured out ways to optimise just the right things by using technology. No cheating involved. No auto-summarisation. We just make many repetitive non-value adding tasks more efficient. These include copy pasting, finding similar pieces of information, finding what you are looking, etc.

We are great at helping you discover, read and find what you are looking for.

We are great at making sure that you don’t repeat your work twice.

We are great at helping you understand or retrieve what you have already done.

Designed to help you get better results, in less time.

Zenreader lets you develop your skills as you work

Zenreader is beautifully designed: making it enjoyable and fun to do knowledge-intensive tasks.

Zenreader is developed for high achievers for whom time is never enough, and it incorporates strategies and methods that have been tested over decades to help you achieve your full potential in the shortest time possible.

Packed with machine intelligence: so that you focus on decision making and what makes humans still truly unique.
