Software-as-a-Service Platform Unifies On-Premises and On-Demand Solutions to Create Intelligent 'Mashup' Applications for Knowledge Workers
AdventNet Inc. creators of ZOHO(TM) and Web Demo (Nasdaq: WEBX - News), the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications for collaborative business on the web, today announced that Zoho's web-based CRM and office productivity tools will be available via the new Web Demo Connect application grid. Zoho CRM is a complete relationship lifecycle management solution delivered as a service, while Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show each provide full-featured "office in a browser" functionality.
Zoho CRM combines the best of sales and marketing features at a fraction of the cost of alternatives. By integrating sales force automation with lead generation and campaign management combined with help desk, customer service and order tracking, small and medium-sized businesses can manage the entire customer lifecycle from any browser without the hassle and cost of traditional premise-based software applications. With the new Web Demo Connect integration, Zoho CRM users can now instantly schedule or launch Web Demo meetings directly from Zoho CRM.
Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show individually deliver web-based full-featured document, spreadsheet and presentation creation with the added dimensions of online collaboration and all the benefits of the latest Web 2.0 technologies such as AJAX. These include: instant document publishing and sharing; embedding other data sources such as video feeds into documents and productivity enhancing rolldown/rollover menus.
"Integration with Web Demo provides our joint customers with a seamless solution for online collaboration. Web Demo Connect is a great vehicle for simplifying the whole business of launching and managing the key applications to run your business" said Sridhar Vembu, CEO.
Zoho's web-based CRM and office productivity tools are some of the many applications users will be able to access through their personal Web Demo Connect workspace and the Web Demo Connect grid of partner applications. Web Demo Connect is the first application platform specifically designed for on-demand collaboration and third party application integration. A unique composite collaboration and application platform, Web Demo Connect will allow users to integrate data from multiple applications and create a collaborative workspace custom designed for their particular workflow and business process. By leveraging open Web 2.0 protocols and collaborative Web Demo connector APIs, Web Demo Connect will make it easy for developers to adapt on-demand, desktop and enterprise applications to the platform or create new composite applications.
"Zoho CRM and Zoho's office tools are an excellent addition to Web Demo Connect and we are delighted that Zoho has joined Web Demo Connect grid," said Subrah Iyar, chairman and CEO, Web Demo.
