the past couple of years we have released several plug-ins and add-ons
for different Microsoft applications providing a seamless integrated
experience between our applications. Some of the plug-ins we currently
- Zoho Plug-in for Microsoft Office
- Zoho CRM plug-in for Microsoft Office
- Zoho Calendar plug-in for Microsoft Outlook (exe link)
- Zoho CRM Plug-in for Microsoft Outlook
- Zoho Office for Microsoft SharePoint
- Zoho QuickRead plug-in for Internet Explorer (exe link)
We currently have two plug-ins for MS Office. Our Zoho plug-in for Microsoft Office lets you save your documents directly to Zoho from Microsoft Word & Excel. It
also allows you to open your Online Zoho Documents in Microsoft Office.
The CRM Plug-in for Microsoft Office lets you create mail merge
documents such as form letters based on the data in Zoho CRM.
We also have couple of plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook. Our Zoho Calendar plug-in for Microsoft Outlook synchronizes your Outlook Calendar with Zoho Calendar. For
Contacts though, our Zoho CRM plug-in for Microsoft Outlook does a
great job of synchronizing your contacts from Outlook to your Zoho CRM
Very recently, we launched Zoho Office for Microsoft SharePoint add-on
that brings our collaborative productivity applications to Microsoft
SharePoint.This add-on works even behind the firewall keeping your data on SharePoint and integrating the collaborative capabilities of Zoho Applications to SharePoint.

Microsoft products. But I regularly use our Zoho QuickRead browser plug-in to quickly view documents I find online. This plug-in opens
documents/spreadheets/presentations in a new browser tab so you don’t
have to download the documents locally. I use the Firefox version of
the plug-in, but the same functionality is available for Internet Explorer users as
So, we have couple of plug-ins for Microsoft Office, couple for
Microsoft Outlook, one for SharePoint and another for IE. Our users
keep requesting us to offer more plug-ins for Microsoft apps. This week,
we plan to launch another add-on for another Microsoft product. Any
guess on what this is?
