Zoho Buzz | Issue #5 | April 2020

A lot has transpired since the last time we dropped by. This month's newsletter is less about us, and more about helping you and our community.

Abrupt transitions to working from home, uncertainty, and confusion. No one saw this coming. But, we're here to ease the burden and bring comfort to you and your teams during these trying times.

Stay home work online

Introducing Zoho Remotely

We put together a remote-working toolkit of some of the most powerful Zoho apps to help you communicate with teams, stay on top of your tasks, and provide remote assistance to your customers, anywhere in the world.

Zoho Remotely is a suite of 11 business and productivity apps-ShowTime, Writer, Sheet, Cliq, Show, Meeting, Sprints, Lens*, Assist, Workdrive, and Projects—available free until July 1, 2020.

Zoho Remotely

Zoho Remotely was released specifically to help businesses transition smoothly into remote work. It's not an easy feat, especially when most business operations require you to be on the ground and have in-person communication.

So, to help you quickly adapt to new working conditions, we interviewed some experts and asked them to share tips and best practices for navigating through such rapidly changing professional situations.

If you're new to this set up, we hope Zoho Remotely provides you with some relief.

Fun fact: The Remotely suite was put together in just 6 days! The whole process, from the ideation to the public launch, was all done working remotely!

*Available for users on US and EU DCs

Emergency Subscription Assistance Program (ESAP)

Having been bootstrapped ourselves, we're quite familiar with the challenges and difficulties that small businesses tend to face. We owe our customers a lot, and to help weather this global crisis, we launched the Small Business Emergency Subscription Assistance Program. Our goal is to lighten the financial load on those small business customers who have been severely impacted by the economic disruption.

With ESAP, we're offering a 3-month subscription fee waiver on all the applications our small business customers currently use. This will be applicable for up to 20,000 qualified customers that have 25 employees or less. Our customers have always supported us. We wanted to do our bit by standing by them.
