About Us
 

For more than 25 years, we've been bucking Silicon Valley trends, taking our own approach to building products.

Good software is a work of art, and good art takes time. Our teams spend years mastering their craft in order to deliver exceptional products that customers love. Software isn't just our paycheck: It's our passion.craft.

Cutting-edge technology meets timeless values
 

We believe that software is the ultimate product of the hands and the mind. And we take pride in creating products and solutions that help solve business problems, anticipate needs, and discover opportunities to help you grow.

Over the past 25 years, we've brought more than 55 products to the market. But, the R&D edge that drives this innovation isn't simple luck, it's the result of careful choice.

We prefer to build things ourselves instead of growing our platform through acquisition. We invest more in customer support and product development than in sales and marketing. All that because we believe that's the best way to deliver choice and value to our customers.

This kind of thinking isn't innovative. But in today's business climate, it is increasingly rare.

A common sense approach to privacy

When you put customers before profits, you end up with more of both.

From the beginning, we decided we would never show ads inside our products (not even in the free editions), nor would we sell user information to third parties. And by prohibiting third-party trackers from operating on any of our websites, we've taken extra steps to make sure that your business is yours alone.

Common sense approach

We aren't interested in invading your privacy just to make a quick buck. Every person should have control over their data, regardless of where they live. We didn't need laws and government regulations to tell us that; its just the right thing to do.

A private company with a public vision

Since we have never taken money from investors, we have always been able to focus on what is best for the customer. Rather than worrying about short-term profits, we've had the freedom to think for the long term.

This kind of independence changes how we approach problem-solving, empowering us to truly think differently.

From how we build to how we hire, our unconventional approach has brought us to more than 15,000 employees and 100 million users around the world.

Software should solve more problems than it causes, so we don't lock you into multi-year contracts with fixed price increases. We don't push our salespeople to push you.

Our products are available à la carte or as suites, and we offer flexible payment options to fit every budget. Our prices are as transparent as our privacy policy, and we take pride in both.

A new way to run your business

When you choose Zoho, you get more than a single product, suite, or platform. You get what we call the operating system for business, the result of more than a decade of engineering and design effort.

With more than 55 deeply integrated apps available on the web and mobile, we offer a solution to fit almost every business need. And if we haven't built it yet, you can bet we probably will soon.

A new way to run your business

A commitment to our communities

As a global company, we understand the value of good citizenship. It's why we always try to give more than we get and why we are always looking for ways to support the communities in which we live.

A commitment to our communities

From providing subscription relief to businesses impacted by natural disasters to building solar farms that offset our carbon footprint, we take on initiatives that change the lives of our customers and employees for the better.
