Zoho Invites Salesforce.com Users to Zwitch

Easy Migration to Zoho CRM Gives Salesforce.com Users Robust Features at Affordable Prices

PLEASANTON, Calif. (July 21, 2009) –

Zoho today announced the Zwitch program for Salesforce.com, which lets Salesforce.com users easily migrate to Zoho CRM, the award-winning, affordable customer relationship management application for organizations that want to run their businesses online. With several users switching from Salesforce.com to Zoho frequently, this program is aimed at helping ease this transition, while driving down costs and delivering better value for their money.

In related news, Zoho also announced the Zoho Mail Add-on for Zoho CRM (please see “Zoho CRM Gains Mail Add-on”).

“Zoho CRM is the other award-winning, on-demand CRM application,” said Rodrigo Vaca, director of marketing at Zoho. “Zwitch lets Salesforce.com customers try Zoho CRM during a hands-on, 15-day free trial period. Zoho will migrate their data for free, so they can try the system as they would be using it. We’ve taken great care to streamline the migration and ensure that users can see for themselves how Zoho CRM provides the robust functionality their businesses demand at prices the current financial situation requires.”
