Guest Post: How Do Zoho’s Remote Working Tools Stack Up Against The Masses?

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 7, 2020 by itnerd

A lot has already been said and written about the global shift to remote working models and the need to adapt your company to the new ways of doing things. 

But at a time when it seems like every software company in the world is pushing out new remote working tools – or rebranding their existing tools to attract new customers like Google did recently with Google Workspace, not to be confused with the longstanding Zoho Workplace –  how do you determine the best way to equip your team for the new reality?

If you happen to be working on a roundup of the best software choices for small businesses, I wanted to take the chance to highlight some of the apps that Zoho offers for the modern workplace.

Why Zoho?

With more than 50 million users worldwide and praise from industry experts and customers alike, Zoho’s offerings have proven to be top-of-the-line. 

In fact, since March of this year, 15% of new Zoho Workplace users have actually migrated from other legacy products like Office 365 and Google Workspace, indicating that Zoho is providing an experience that not even the most tried and true software offerings can.

Those users are switching to Zoho for a number of reasons including: a unified interface for all Workplace apps, contextual Zia Search across all Zoho apps and platforms, and built-in security that does not require increased payment for increased security, like some of the other options out there.

Apps For The Remote Workforce

Among its numerous product offerings like Zoho RemotelyZoho Workplace, and Zoho BackToWork, are a few apps most relevant to the current workplace that I would like to highlight for you:

  • Zoho Meeting not only provides all the features you want and need to smoothly run online meetings and webinars, but it does so all with the peace-of-mind of complete and comprehensive security. Through a combination of admin security controls, two-factor authentication, encryption, thorough and complete privacy policies, data center security, and compliance to internationally accepted security and privacy standards, Zoho ensures you and your workforce are secure and safe.
  • Showtime is Zoho’s answer to the new problem of training and onboarding new hires without being able to have them in the same room as you. Enhance your training sessions with features like the ability to pull in co-trainers into a session, session recording, screen-sharing, whiteboard tools, engagement analytics, and much more.
  • Cliq focuses on the name of the game in today’s modern workplace: seamless collaboration. Through the use of tools like searchable conversations, options to switch to voice or video calls, integrated calendars and to-do lists, custom build bots and keyboard shortcuts, and top-notch security, your team can work in a way like never before.
