New Products, Upgrades, Integrations and Partnerships Round Out Year's Wins

PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helping people work online, Zoho today announced the celebration of its 2010 successes. During the past year, the company introduced a number of new products, upgrades and partnerships as well as many key integrations with internal and third-party applications. Zoho users, in turn, are enjoying an increasingly robust and tightly integrated suite of online business, productivity and collaboration applications.

"We think it's important to build a broad suite of affordable products, but it's just as important to provide the integrations that make it easy for our Small & Medium Business customers to get their jobs done effectively," said
Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.

"Data typically gets isolated in silos when users work with individual products from different vendors. We want to provide a complete, integrated suite that lets users fully leverage their data. And we want to provide the integrations that give them that leverage even if they use third party applications, too."
