It has been a month since we launched Zoho Challenge 2.0 and so far we are pretty happy with the response we've gotten. Our original target for the service was, as you'd probably imagine, the educational sector. But one of the things we've learned after going live with the service is that Zoho Challenge is well suited not only for schools, but also for the commercial sectors. We are (pleasantly!) surprised by the high uptake from customers other than education, including SMB customers - who are the mainstay of Zoho's customer base are taking to the service pretty well.
So far, we have observed that businesses use Zoho Challenge for
- Training and assessment needs for customers - used by training centers
- Conduct knowledge assessments for employees
- Internal training, validation and continuous improvement
- Recruitment self assessment
- Recruitment screening
Most of these scenarios are new ones that, quite honestly, we didn't think about before. We are glad to note that Zoho Challenge clearly addresses these requirements as well.
As a 'thank you' note to the business users, we have made iFrame embeddable online tests available right from the free plan. Not only did we make it free, but we also improved the level of customization for the embedded tests. We believe that this feature will help businesses and schools stay closer to their users and improve stickiness of their website. You can now create online tests, do limited customization and embed them in your website - all this in a few clicks and for free. Learn more here.

In the meantime, we are keeping busy at perfecting and adding more features and are gearing up for another major update. Stay tuned!
