We’re happy to report that Zoho Projects has been selected as a finalist for Interop’s Best of 2010 Awards, in the Collaboration category.

Zoho Projects helps teams manage their milestones and tasks, but beyond just that, Zoho Projects’ collaboration capabilities allows teams to easily collaborate while keeping everyone in the loop. It provides a centralized place where team documents, conversations, decisions, tasks, announcements and updates are posted, everyone exchanges ideas and gets work done. Sounds too good? Try it for yourself!

Many of our Zoho Projects customers are internal teams who want a better environment to collaborate while working on a particular product or project. Many other teams are external ones – you know, the kind that interacts with customers on a daily basis, and who performs work for them, most commonly on a billable basis – think consulting, professional services, designers, etc. For the latter kind, last month we introduced much improved Timesheet and Billing functionality that allows teams to keep track of the billable activities and then turn that into an actual invoice.

But that’s not all… two other Zoho Corp products (from our sister division, ManageEngine) were also selected as finalists for the Best of 2010 Awards . They include ManageEngine Applications Manager in the Virtualization Category and ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus On-Demand in the Cloud Computing Category. So we’ve got finalists in 3 categories out of 9. That ain’t bad!
