Tell us about yourself, Deepa Well, I’m a Life Science postgraduate who could not differentiate between Windows the operating system & the one that looks out of my balcony. It was only after my PG, I was introduced to the world of “computers” via APTECH. This opened up a whole new range of possibilities for me & I haven’t turned back since. At the moment, I reside at Bangalore, India and work from home & I have no intention of going back to the brick-and-mortar routine.
Medicfusion has integrated Zoho Creator into their EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system to offer their customers the ability to design their own intake forms, questionnaires and basic patient surveys. Says Melisa Kirby Rottinghaus, Medicfusions’s CEO,
For the first time ever, fully custom intake, exam forms and patient research studies are integrated into an electronic medical record. Exciting “in the clouds” integration between Medicfusion EMR and Zoho Creator makes it possible. [...] Until now, integration of a physician’s proprietary forms into an EMR wasn’t possible. Not without many thousands of dollars in custom form development and even then, not fully integrated. Now it’s possible, thanks to the roll-out of a revolutionary and very exciting integration between Medicfusion EMR and Zoho Creator.

I have clarified her about our claim in the same post by commenting that number – 300,000 is for users and not for customers, though we wish to have these numbers for customers but we need to wait for some more time.
Couple of points from her post
It seems such quantity of potential users should be of a great interest for VAR, Solution Providers or Individual developers, but I can hardly believe anybody builds a profitable business on that.
Zoho Creator has couple of partners who are bringing business regularly. We signed up Web Force Express, Inc last month, they were partnered with Coghead earlier.…
It’s good to see such comments after a long, hard and tiring month for Zoho Creator team, which is working hard on performance enhancements of the apps. Did we succeed? Updates on that front later. First let us take a quick sigh of relieeeeeef reading these comments.
AND WY I AM SO ADDICTED TO ZC?
1º Because this tool is simple and easy to learn and, because of that, it is also easy to explain to non-developers how to setup things;
3º Because ZC have a free plan (despite the increasing of limitations);
Yes, we have limited some of the features in Free plan, reason being that we want to run the show so that small and medium business owners with an idea can create apps at low price and manage their business. Now we have introduced 3 user plan at $15 targeted to smallest business owners and home-based businesses. Marketplace is one of the kind of initiative where in business owners can buy apps from third party developers -or- get a custom made app by the developers at reasonable price.…
We were watching Coghead’s announcements and its progress closely since its launch and were really impressed with their 2.0 Launch. But sad that they’re closing.
As Zoho Creator is competing in the same space of ‘database application development platform‘. We feel responsible to bail out all the Coghead users who have put their business critical data in Coghead. We can understand how shocking it would be to read the news that you no longer can use the service which you have been depending on.

Unexpected things do happen at the most odd of times and I guess in life we have to handle all these unexpected situations.
One such thing happened to one of the Zoho Creator user – Alan Bradford, last week. His wife was hit by a driver when she was traveling back home from the gym. The driver was DRUNK!. Luckily she was not hurt. But the car has got hit very badly and Alan says that the repair works would cost $13,000 dollars.
You might think what this has to do with Zoho.
Since there were no broken bones, and everybody (surprisingly) had insurance, we decided to try to get through this on our own. While I was on hold with the insurance company the next morning, I logged into my Zoho Creator account and built an application for us to manage all the details related to the accident. It took me about an hour to build it. You can demo and download my Accident Tracker application in the Creator Marketplace
However, this action of Alan perfectly mirrors the aspect of his strong personality.
