Have you seen Zoho lately?

Zoho never ceases to surprise me !

The quality of SAAS solutions (free or very competitively priced) Zoho keeps churning out at consistent regularity must be making SAAS giants Google and Microsoft quite uncomfortable.

In last couple of months Zoho has introduced 3 new very useful SAAS solutions/ utilities: Zoho Invoice, Zoho People and Zoho Viewer

Zoho Invoice

  1. Я из России. Скажу просто. Ребята, вы делаете великие вещи! Так держать! Я за вас обеими руками. Как только вы закончите работу хоть надо одним локальным клиентом, чтобы можно было нормально синхронизировать документы с вашими серверами, на мой взгляд Россия будет за вас а не за Google… Жду новых сервисов и интересных решений. С уважением geskoz

  4. Zoho seems to be good, but it hadn’t got the feature of VOIP. Though every one can share information and documents online, they are unable to talk with each other. Zoho should start thinking of this immediately.

  5. The only thing left for them i guess is VoIP. They should start selling a hosted VoIP solution with Office Integration. :)
