Here we sit down with Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu and Evangelist Raju Vegesna in Zoho’s Pleasanton, Calif. office. If you haven’t heard of Zoho yet, you will. They just were named to PC World’s 100 best products of 2007 list and they have a range of applications that will help you and your coworkers work together. Translation: they are going after Microsoft Office. They have a unique development team that just might get it done, too.

    I have heard of Zoho and been hesitant to try it because I like Google’s suite of products. After watching the video I’m willing to at least take a look now.

    It seems like a good product.

  5. Thomas Says:

    I think they mentioned it, but didn’t catch it. Why the name “Zoho”?

  7. Zoho (and Sun Microsystems) saves the day for Zooomr « Scobleizer Says:

    […] Zoho (and Sun Microsystems) saves the day for Zooomr Thomas Hawk and Kristopher Tate are in the Zoho datacenter. You can watch them here. Sun Microsystems also is sending over a loaner server with 42 terabytes of storage. All to help Zooomr get back up and running. Thomas Hawk left a long comment with an update on Zooomr’s situation. Don’t know who Zoho is? I interviewed them a couple weeks ago and their evangelist, Raju, is the one who’s helping Zooomr out. […]

  8. ComeAcross » An update on Zooomr Says:

    […] Sun Microsystems proved how nice they are by loaning them a huge server with 42 terabytes of data. That monster is on the way by truck, if it hasn’t arrived already. Zooomr will definitely be zooming along when that thing is turned on! Zoho has also come through in a big way and helped Kris and Tom by giving them space in their data center. […]

  9. Krishwords » Killer App: Zoho integration with Facebook Says:

    […] Zoho is a small company that is trying to compete in the Office 2.0 market. It is taking on companies like Google and Microsoft. Even though they have some nifty tools in their office suite, their user base is relatively small. But it could change overnight if they can integrate their office suite into Facebook platform. This will be a killer combination and it has the potential to overthrow big players in the market. I was listening to Sridhar Vembu, CEO of Zoho, talking to Robert Scoble on his Scobleshow. In his chat, Sridhar Vembu mentioned that his target audience is small businesses and college grads. Facebook offers them a good opportunity to reach the college students. This will work to the advantage of Facebook too. An integrated office suite means more time spent on facebook platform, which translates into possible monetization options (for both Zoho and Facebook). Already facebook has box.net integrated into their platform. An office suite could be the next logical extension. I feel that Zoho Office Suite + Facebook could be the WebOS which everyone is talking about. Any takers? […]
