PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Zoho has partnered with Entrepreneur.com to create Entrepreneur Assist. The newly launched website gives entrepreneurs and small business owners the ultimate combination of free, collaborative office tools and business content. The strategic partnership also demonstrates the stickiness Zoho creates for companies trying to get users to spend more time on their websites. See the introduction video discussion at http://www.viddler.com/explore/raju/videos/6/ or the demo video at http://www.viddler.com/raju/videos/4/.

Users will find Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet, Zoho Show, Zoho Planner, and a Zoho bookmarking application in addition to a vast library of Entrepreneur content, including over 200 customizable forms and templates.
"Entrepreneur is leading the pack with an innovative new website that offers compelling content and tools to keep people on site and coming back for more," said Ian Wenig, director business development for Zoho. "Web ranking companies are beginning to prioritize time-on-site as a key metric, something we've been advocating for quite a while. Our online office applications and Entrepreneur's quality content is a sticky combination that will help Entrepreneur stay ahead of the online curve and maintain its reputation as a premier business destination on the Web."
Entrepreneur.com is the Web's largest small business site, with over six million unique visitors per month.
