Zoho is one of the leading companies enabling the success of small business. With an executive team keenly focused on serving the needs of small business owners, entrepreneurs and consultants Zoho has launched a new solution focused on event management and an upgrade to Zoho One.
Zoho One is now “smarter” bringing it’s growing list of apps together in a more integrated fashion, enabling data to be used between applications based on user queries.
What most excites me about the update is Zoho Backstage, a robust solution for complete event management. Included in Zoho Backstage is the ability to build an event website, create an agenda, manage speakers (and sponsors), promote the event and manage ticket sales.
Zoho has built a rich set of audience engagement tools into Backstage as well, enabling presentations and agendas to be a seamless part of the attendee experience.
Raju Vegesna, Chief Evangelist for Zoho says that Zoho’s aim is to provide just about every tool a business needs to start and grow – an operating system for a business.
While most of the 40 plus applications in Zoho’s suite of tools are first class, Raju also acknowledges and encourages partnerships. A business might want to use a competitors tool for CRM and Zoho’s tools for back end operations. Another business might want to use Zoho for CRM and customer contact management and another product for collaboration or email management.
Today’s announcements continue to prove that Zoho is one of the best friends a growing business could have and that their management is in tune to the needs of all independent businesses.
