Zoho Charges Ahead with 50 Million Business Users

6th November 2019 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

zoho-logoChennai, India, November 6, 2019— Business software applications provider Zoho has said that it has crossed today yet another historic milestone — 50 million business users. The rare feet comes at a time when Zoho’s growth wheel has gained faster momentum and the company is running 10 data centres across the globe, supporting over 45 different applications that help businesses located in more than 180 countries.

Zoho has also rearchitected its content collaboration platform from the ground up, optimizing it for teams and businesses. WorkDrive now provides the underlying document management across all Zoho business applications, allowing for unified search, single storage, contextual integration, as well as many other vertically integrated capabilities.

Businesses seek to go beyond storage today and need enterprise-grade solutions in areas like multi-level security, compliance, and audit control. The unit of work is no longer the individual, but the team. Sharing and collaboration must be implicit in workflows and business processes, rather than be patched onto solutions that originated as consumer and single-person models. WorkDrive is integrated into the platform, services, and applications layers of the Zoho technology stack and incorporates capabilities like virus detection, encryption, image processing, and other AI tools in the proper business context.

Sridhar Vembu, Zoho’s CEO, said, “A content collaboration platform must understand the context of the documents it stores. A proposal may turn into a sales contract and then into a service level agreement. In this case, the customer engagement went from prospecting to sales to service management. By understanding the connections between these documents—hence their underlying context—a content collaboration platform can connect and engage the relevant people.”

Vembu further added, “WorkDrive creates a common, unified file system across all business processes, so the business context is easier to understand and preserve, making the system significantly more valuable to the customer. This unique type of a solution can only come from a vendor who also offers the business applications.”

Zoho is also announcing its revamped Workplace suite of productivity applications, which includes Cliq, Notebook, Connect, Writer, Sheet, Show, Showtime, Mail, Meeting, and WorkDrive. Among other new capabilities, Workplace now features an integrated app dashboard that houses customizable widgets that display information from each of the nine apps included in the suite.

Enabling better Team Management and Collaboration, WorkDrive comes with a built-in Zoho Office suite (Writer, Sheet, and Show). The product also introduces Team Folders, a shared workplace with role-based member permissions for cross-team collaboration and storage. Besides, it deploys virus scanning, encryption, and WAN acceleration at the platform level, thereby strengthening all Zoho services and applications built on top of it.

WorkDrive also comes with image, video, and document conversion services. Other than that, it is integrated with Zia, Zoho’s AI assistant, providing unified search as well as OCR in applications such as Zoho Notebook.

While providing administrators advanced analytics, data administration, and granular access controls, WorkDrive also provides an advanced external file-sharing feature, allowing users to collaborate with external stakeholders while maintaining control of the files. It brings businesses advanced team management capabilities, allowing administrators to manage settings at the team and Team Folder levels.

Pricing & Availability

WorkDrive is available starting at ₹120 per user/month. Zoho Workplace is available starting at ₹99 per user/month.
