PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zoho today announced that it has integrated Facebook Connect with its Productivity, Collaboration & Business Applications. Now, Facebook users can easily try Zoho Applications by logging into www.zoho.com using their Facebook accounts.
“Openness plays a big part in the Zoho philosophy,” said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.
“We want to make our applications open to everyone, and we didn’t want the account creation process to be a hassle when trying Zoho applications. A lot of our users are already logging in with other credentials, and now we are extending this to Facebook as well. On one side, users can login to Zoho using their Facebook credentials and on the other side, Zoho has the Apps for Facebook platform making it a seamless integration.”
Users can easily login to Zoho using their Facebook account:
No separate login is required for Zoho.
A user can map his or her Facebook account with an existing Zoho account, integrating the accounts under a common username. Otherwise, the user can create a new Zoho account by choosing a unique username.
The unified login gives Facebook users single sign-on access to all Zoho applications, including Zoho Office Suite and Zoho Business applications such as Zoho CRM, Zoho Meeting, Zoho Creator, Zoho Invoice, Zoho Projects, Zoho Reports, Zoho People, Zoho Mail and Zoho Marketplace. As most Zoho business applications have a free version, users can expand the number of online business applications they use without increasing their costs.
This functionality is also useful for sharing documents and other files. Now users can share their files with friends that have Facebook accounts, and those friends can login with their Facebook credentials to view the shared files without having to create a new Zoho account.
