Zoho Evangelist Raju got interviewed for the upcoming ‘Under The Radar: Why Office 2.0 Matters’ conference to be held on March 23, 2007. From the interview :
Our motto is “Keep it simple”. So tell us in less than 20 simple words what you do.
We do online office. We offer a broad set of online applications for SMBs at affordable price.
Ok, so you have customers now. Queue the trite but required question…Now that Google is in the office 2.0 game and with all the interest from the other office giants-.how are you going to stay relevant?
Our aim here is not beating the giants like Google. Our aim is to provide very good set of affordable applications and serving our customers well and building a profitable business. There is no market that is completely owned by a single vendor. There is always room for more smaller vendors like Zoho who offer good value to their customers.
What’s your biggest challenge today and what do you envision as your biggest challenge in 1 year?
Our immediate challenge is getting our applications well integrated and adding more functionality that are business friendly. Our challenge over time will be to evangelize the value of Zoho applications against the bigger players.
Zoho is one of the ‘Graduate Circle’ participants of the conference.
