Zoho Invoice, Zoho Projects, Zoho CRM Information Displays in Gmail Messages

PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Helping people work online, Zoho today announced that it has contextually integrated several of its online applications with Google Apps. Users can now work with Zoho Invoice, Zoho Projects and Zoho CRM information in the context of a Google App - Gmail - without leaving the Google user interface.

For Gmail, Zoho created the Zoho Invoice Contextual Gadget, Zoho Projects Contextual Gadget and Zoho CRM Contextual Gadget to let users view and act on relevant Zoho Invoice, Zoho Projects and Zoho CRM information while reading their Gmail messages.

"We're committed to contextual integration because it makes life easier for the user," said
Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.

 "Instead of hopping from browser tab to browser tab as they move through a workflow, everything needed to get the job done is presented in a single browser tab. We've been doing this for awhile, contextually integrating Zoho Mail, Zoho Writer, Zoho CRM and Zoho Projects, for instance. The contextual integrations for Gmail are our first cross-vendor efforts and open the doors to similar integrations with other third-party applications."

The Contextual Integration of Zoho and Google

The Zoho Contextual Gadgets for Gmail take advantage of a new Gmail API, which lets third-party applications intelligently display relevant information to users as they read their Gmail messages. Users can then interact with the data from within the Gmail UI. Zoho CRM, Zoho Invoice and Zoho Projects are the first of the Zoho applications to be contextually integrated with Gmail.

Zoho CRM Contextual Gadget for Gmail displays CRM information within relevant Gmail messages, enabling users to perform CRM functions such as:

  • Add the email sender to Zoho CRM as a contact or a lead
  • Assign tasks, add notes, and create a new potential
  • View existing tasks, notes and potentials
