Software. It's our Craft

At Zoho, software is our craft and passion. We create beautiful software to solve business problems. Over the past decade of our journey, the Zoho suite has emerged to be a leader in the cloud and on your devices. As much as we love software, it is our people and our culture that are our most valuable assets. Our people spend years mastering the craft. In an industry where technology changes at a relentless and dizzying pace, we value persistence and endurance as highly as adaptability.

When you choose Zoho for your organization or as an individual, you don't just get the product. You get our enduring commitment to keep improving your experience. You get our relentless devotion to customer satisfaction.

Our company and our culture are our life's work.

  • A Focus on What Matters

    Zoho is committed to spending your money wisely. We invest more in product development and customer support than in sales and marketing. It always struck us as pointless to charge the customer more for the privilege of marketing to that customer. By keeping our cost of attracting customers low, we keep our prices affordable. This allows us to be gentle and not pushy in our sales pitch. Our model has worked very well, with growth that is consistently ahead of our major competitors.

    Our company and our culture are our life's work.

  • Foucus on Matter
  • Private and Profitable
  • Private and Profitable

    That commitment is helped by the fact that we are a private company, and we intend to stay private. We have no outside investors in the company, which makes it easy for us to make this commitment. We are private, but we are not small - with nearly 2500 employees, Zoho has the resources to invest in R&D and customer support, two strong pillars of our organization. Indeed, our R&D investment now rivals most of the major players in the industry. Our entire organization, across 6 locations world-wide runs on Zoho; the product suite has grown with the company itself.

    Our investment in people is a vital part of our R&D edge. We have a comprehensive program to hire high school students and train them; a program we call Zoho University. Over 15% of our engineers come from this program. Not only is the program good for our company, it is also good for the communities we live in.

  • Breadth With Real Depth

    We view our company as an integrated whole; not as organizational silos that barely talk to each other, or worse, work at cross purposes. That philosophy and worldview is reflected in our product suite. The Zoho suite is as broad as it is deep, and just as we do with the company, we view the suite as an integrated whole, far greater than the sum of its parts.

  • We invest more in product development and customer support than in sales and marketing.

  • Conference Room
  • Casual Discussion
  • The Zoho suite wasn't built in a day; it has taken the better part of a decade to come this far. Unlike our competitors, who periodically wake up and discover gaping product holes they have to fill urgently with acquisitions, we craft software with patience and passion. Our strategy is born of the realization that most acquisitions fail in this industry, and the customer is the one who pays the price. Zoho has made a commitment to offer you real depth along with breadth in our offerings.

  • Our investment in people is a vital part of our R&D edge.

  • Casual Meeting
