Human Resource Management App Helps Companies Run Businesses Online - PLEASANTON, Calif. — March 10, 2008 — Zoho today announced Zoho People, its human resource management application for companies that want to run their businesses online. The Zoho People video tour gives a quick overview of the key functionalities in the application and is available at http://www.vimeo.com/770428 or http://www.viddler.com/raju/videos/20/.
"Zoho People is one of our first department-specific offerings," said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.
"Unlike other SaaS players, Zoho uniquely delivers online productivity apps, business apps, and now department-specific apps under a single umbrella. As we often say, we want to be the IT department for SMBs. This means we have to offer business applications along with productivity and collaboration applications."
HR for the People
Purchasing and deploying most HR applications can cost anywhere from $10,000 to over $100,000, a steep price for cost-conscious organizations that need to streamline their HR departments. With Zoho People, organizations can avoid that expense with an online, self-service HR application that is both enterprise grade and cost effective.
Zoho People targets HR teams within organizations with over 50 employees. Currently available in beta release, the application will be constantly improved in response to customer feedback. Today, Zoho People includes several modules that streamline human resources management.
No two businesses are alike. To give users maximum flexibility, Zoho People is completely customizable. Zoho has integrated Zoho Creator into Zoho People, so users can customize every aspect of the application – from the user interface to forms and content – to reflect each organization’s business processes and identity.
Zoho plans to tightly integrate Zoho People with Zoho Mail. For example, modules such as the Self-Service Module, which can be used by departments other than Human Resources, will be available to Zoho Business users.
Zoho is creating the most comprehensive suite of affordable, online productivity tools for today's knowledge workers. Nearly 120 developers work on the Zoho suite, often implementing new features just days after customers request them and responding to customer queries within minutes of their posting. To date, Zoho has launched 15 different applications and more are in the works. For more information on Zoho, please visit www.zoho.com and blogs.zoho.com
