I have just come across a company who have actually gone one better than Google in the area of “Cloud Computing”. In fact they are so good I have a feeling Google may try to buy their company. Their name is Zoro.
The following applications have been set up for small businesses, especially those on the move a lot, to run their businesses from their laptop in the four corners of the world. I have several friends and contacts who I think could take advantage of this in a big way.
The applications are as follows:
- Zoho Writer Online word processor
- Zoho Sheet Online spreadsheet service
- Zoho Show Online presentation tool
- Zoho Planner Online organizing tool Todos, Appointments, Notes
- Zoho DB Online Database & Reporting
- Zoho Meeting Online Meeting Web Conferencing
- Zoho Wiki Online Wiki with public, private & group permissions
- Zoho Notebook Online Note Taker
- Zoho Chat Online Instant messaging and group chat tool
- Zoho Projects Online Project Management
- Zoho Invoice Online Invoicing. Quick and Easy
- Zoho Creator Online web applications creator
These are free to use unless you need large capacities. Apart from Invoicing where you only get five free invoices a month, most business of up to five people should find it otherwise free of charge.
I will be exploring more possibilities and be writing about the applications in greater detail over the course of the next week or so.
