Zoho Takes On Slack With Remote Work Tools For Cliq

Zoho Corporation, a global technology company that offers the most comprehensive suite of business software applications in the industry, today announced Remote Work Tools on Cliq, an enhanced version of its chat software that allows employees to check-in to work, greet co-workers and interact as they would at the office, no matter where they’re working from. Available now, the enhanced platform brings the office into Cliq to ensure teams don’t miss out on the little things.

As businesses shifted to working remotely in the wake of the global pandemic, Cliq usage skyrocketed. The platform saw a 225% increase in message volume and a 1200% increase in calls made per day, with group calls growing 10x in the U.S., 25x in Europe and 15x in India. As remote work became widespread, teams faced the challenge of collaborating as they would in their physical office space. Cliq with Remote Work Tools addresses this by solving what traditional chat software can’t.

Key Remote Work Tools on Cliq features include:

Easy Check-in. With a simple click connected to human resource management systems, employees can check-in and check-out to work from Cliq as if swiping their ID when walking into or out of the office.

Availability transparency. Team members can easily update their work status (available for collaboration, engaged with work, having lunch or taking a short break), allowing co-workers to see who’s available and who’s busy as if walking the office floor.

Auto-timed status updates. Work status is synced based on activity across other Zoho Apps, letting co-workers easily see if teammates are in a remote session in Zoho Assist or attending a meeting in Zoho Meeting.

Live video feeds to see who’s available. A virtual equivalent to peeking at a co-worker’s desk to see if they’re free before heading over for a quick discussion, live feeds enable teams to see if it’s the right time to connect with a co-worker.

Instant group calls. Group calls are initiated with the touch of a button, allowing teams to collaborate when the situation calls for a quick face-to-face meeting.

Team work-hour reports. Integrating reporting allows teams to quickly view a summary of average user availability and check the team’s status and summary reports in their human resource management system.

Easy document management. Integration with Zoho Writer enables teams to preview, share or export documents from the document link.

Instant leave approvals. Managers can approve leave requests directly from chat to quickly update resource management.

Integrated extensions. Messages can be turned into project work items, such as adding a technical issue to Zoho Projects using an integrated extension.

With these and many other features, Cliq with Remote Work Tools brings the in-office experience home for improved team morale, collaboration and productivity. Teams can even build their own tools with widgets that integrate with users’ everyday apps to create a custom home view directly inside Cliq.
