Zoho has launched a new online collaboration and a communications software suite designed to support the likes of Microsoft Teams And Google Meet.
The launch includes Trident, which combines email, messages, audio and video calls, calendar, and tasks into a package that’s ominously (to Microsoft at least) similar to Teams.
Power users will also likely enjoy using a number of integrations and widgets from Zoho’s own catalog (like CRM, Desk, and Projects), as well as third-party tools (like Asana and HubSpot).
The company says Trident will appeal to the growing number of workers who are tired of having to open multiple different apps to communicate with colleagues and external customers, with a more unified approach.
The beta version is available for customers to test, but they will need a fairly up-to-date operating system to run the software. Trident works on new versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11, and macOS High Sierra 10.13 and above. Tech Radar Pro asked Zoho for more information on its full general availability.
Alongside Trident, the company also announced details of a handful of other new products, including the Explicit Webinar, the expansion of its Zoho Voice platform to more apps, a grammar tool based on the AI called BluePencil, a universal drag-and-drop experience, and a handful of other refinements.
The entire Zoho Workplace package comes in two tiers: Standard ($3/£2.40 per month) and Professional ($6/£4.80 per month).
Zoho says its customer base has now reached 16 million, representing a 30% year-over-year growth. Going on the offensive, the company says migrations from Google, Microsoft, and GoDaddy to Zoho Workplace nearly doubled in the past year.
