Zoho is now offering full integration with Google Apps, allowing users to seamlessly access Google Docs from within the Zoho environment.
Zoho already provides integration with Google Apps via sign in. But this is the first time full access to Google Web Apps is available through Zoho applications. It's another move by Zoho to compete with the giants of the business through integrations that allow for interplay across multiple platforms.
Integrations Add Up
Zoho also integrates with Sharepoint. It has mobile integration, and supports Google and Yahoo! sign in.
These types of integrations add up, especially for the small business that is looking for a productivity suite without the costs and IT requirements that come with Microsoft Office.
But Zoho has some challenges ahead. Microsoft is making a big play in cloud computing with Windows Azure. And Google Apps is not slowing down. Its feature sets are advancing considerably. Google sees a bright future in the enterprise and will market its products aggressively.
