In 2005, Thomas L Friedman proposed that the world was becoming flat. Today, we can be certain that it already has! What that has done is to unify consumers and businesses across the World.
All you need today is a product or service that makes life easier for someone, somewhere in the world. The Internet has made it remarkably easy to offer products & services globally. However, it’s not just about selling, now, is it? What you sell, you also have to support thereafter.
At Zoho, we have customers across various time zones. And, our support commitments have to be restricted to each time zone. Selling to a single global market comes with that peculiar challenge. We spoke to some customers and they all said “Hey, we have that challenge too! Can you fix it?”
Much to our surprise, even some popular enterprise-quality helpdesk software didn’t do anything to fix this handicap. So, we set out to do what we’ve always done best. We found a simple way to get rid of the challenge and built it right into Zoho Support. We’re excited to tell you all about it!
You can have a different set of business hours for each time zone. Your SLAs will ‘automagically’ tie into these business hours too. All you have to do is setup the business hours for each of the time zones you’re servicing. Pretty simple, ain’t it? Pretty useful too!
Zoho has consistently empowered businesses to succeed in a flat world. And this tiny feature is just one more step forward in that direction.
Try it for your business and tell us what you think. We really hope you’ll love it.
