One Zoho Account Provides Access to All Zoho Applications

PLEASANTON, Calif. (February 24, 2009) –

Zoho today announced single sign-on support for Zoho CRM, the company’s award-winning and affordable on-demand customer relationship management application for organizations that want to run their businesses online. Finally, one Zoho account provides users with access to all Zoho applications. Zoho will discuss this announcement further with media, analysts, and end users via an open conference call to be held today at 1:00 p.m. Eastern (10:00 a.m. Pacific time). Conference call details are available at http://apps.calliflower.com/conf/show/46467, or dial-in at 1-218-936-6581; pin code 16778.

“Zoho CRM is a mature product, but that doesn’t stop us from responding to customer feedback,” said Rodrigo Vaca, director of marketing at Zoho. “Being part of our single sign-on solution improves Zoho CRM’s user experience, giving users access to other Zoho applications with the same account and is the first step to further integration between Zoho CRM and applications like Zoho Mail, Zoho Docs, Zoho Projects, and Zoho Creator.”

Zoho CRM empowers organizations with a complete customer relationship lifecycle management solution for managing organization-wide sales, marketing, customer support and service, and inventory management in a single business system. With single sign-on, Zoho CRM users can log in just once and have access to other Zoho applications without being prompted to re-authenticate using different user name and password combinations.

Now, Zoho users can use the same Zoho account to take advantage of other Zoho applications that complement Zoho CRM, such as Zoho Projects for project management, Zoho Invoice for customer invoicing, and Zoho Meeting for web meetings, desktop sharing and remote support. Likewise, the single sign-on advantage extends to Google and Yahoo users, who can now login to Zoho CRM directly with their respective accounts. Users sign in just once to use all Zoho applications.

Zoho CRM is the last Zoho application to become part of the company’s single sign-on solution, which now encompasses all Zoho applications. Users manage account details for Zoho CRM and the rest of the Zoho applications from http://accounts.zoho.com/.

Single sign-on is now available in Zoho CRM Free Edition, Professional Edition, and Enterprise Edition.
