New App with Zoho and Google

Zoho, a recent leader in the web-based and SaaS CRM and office suite solutions for business, announced today that is has addressed its customers’ needs for a sync option between their Google Apps accounts (calendars and contacts) and the Zoho CRM solution. This will enable their customers to merge contacts and calendar items between the two systems, making for a smoother and more efficient use of both.

Zoho has grown an enormous customer base very rapidly in part because of its interoperability with Google Apps accounts and the ease of use that it is able to offer customers who use both systems. This integration and syncing of contacts and calendars will enable users to import data from one system to the other and manage individualized preference settings as to which data should take precedence in the event of conflicting data.

This addition to Zoho’s already widely used CRM system will allow Google Apps clients to make additions and changes to their Google calendars and have those changes immediately updated and reflected in their CRM databases. Syncing and managing contacts between the two systems has also been made simpler with the ability to schedule and set repetitive syncing so that all contacts stay up to date in both systems.

These updated features will be available to all Google Apps users who are currently using the Zoho CRM solution (Enterprise Edition).
