Here are my first impressions of Zoho, based on a very brief visit.
I don't like that there is no home page. If one is in Zoho Writer, the company logo is a dead link. To move away, users "switch" to another feature such as Zoho Sheet. Each switch opens a new window (not sure I like that, either).
Since I have Excel, Word, etc., I was most interested in seeing the organization/planning feature. It seemed too limited to be useful to me.
On the other hand, I really like the idea of being able to share documents online without having to deal with my company's limited helpfulness when it comes to file sharing or doing anything else remotely connected to the server, network security, etc. Zoho's spreadsheet seems more advanced then Google's version, too (like I said, this is just a first impression).
Having posted new thread about Google Apps, I could not resist to speak to the community about another great Webware called ZOHO.
Zoho is a full featured online office powered by a great collaboration environment. Before you look at SharePoint and other enterprise level collaboration technologies, I would strongly suggest giving ZOHO a try. It is free to use, but I am almost confident that they will charge for the services in the near future.
The following services are available:
Zoho Sheet - Online spreadsheet service.
Zoho Meeting - Zoho Meeting - Web Conferencing
Zoho Show - Online presentation tool
Zoho Writer - Online word processor
Zoho Notebook - Online Note Taker
Zoho Creator - Online web applications creator.
Zoho Planner - Online organizing tool.
Zoho Wiki - Online Wiki with public, private & group permissions
Zoho Chat - Instant messaging and group chat tool
Try it and I would appreciate the feedback.
