Techcrunch reported today about ZohoX:
"Virtual Office, or ZohoX, will integrate most of the 10+ Zoho services already available and add several more. It will be unveiled on Wednesday [...] The service will be free for individual use and cost $9 per user for SMBs. Users across multiple locations can access the same workspace with their own admin and user list; the ability to collaborate across organizations will be available soon."
CEO Sridhar Vembu told me a few days earlier:
"We are moving towards a full WebOffice suite. We already have the Writer/Sheet/Show covered, and those are getting updated at a rapid clip. We also have Zoho Virtual Office, which offers full Sharepoint style collaboration features. We are working on integrating these services in a better way, and single sign-on is the first step towards that integration. Zoho Creator brings Access/VB like database & scripting to the mix."
Sridhar also said that Zoho Projects and Zoho CRM will be part of the Web Office Suite mix, as they "provide more breadth and depth to the product offering."
Zoho's intent is "to offer a fairly comprehensive suite for businesses, as they move their data to the web." Sridhar also noted that Zoho will offer a downloadable version of their Office Suite product "once the services mature." So it won't be limited to a browser-based offering.
In my tests of Zoho's product range, I've found it to be a very slick and full-featured web-based office offering.
