Kim recommends Zoho Office

General | August 20, 2006 | 1 min read

America’s Digital Goddess, Kim Komando has the following to say about Zoho’s Office Suite.

Zoho offers Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet and Zoho Show. These are free counterparts to Word, Excel and PowerPoint, respectively. You won’t find as many features as you’d find in Office, but there are just enough to be useful.The sites are similar to Microsoft Office, so there are no big learning curves. All files are saved online. You can start a document at work and finish it at home.

All three sites open and save files in a variety of common formats. For example, Zoho Writer will open a previously created Word document, HTML or rich text file. It will also save any file onto your computer’s hard drive as a Word, pdf, txt, rtf or html file.

Google Spreadsheets is less complete than Zoho’s program. It is fine for basic number crunching and the maintenance of lists. But it lacks the capability to create graphs like Zoho Sheet.
