Harvard Business Review article talks about the need for people across hierarchies, functions and geographies within an organization to collaborate. Your employees should be empowered to submit their ideas and suggestions across the hierarchy. And your top management should be able to provide feedback and guidance to employees across verticals. Also, companies/teams within the same parent organization should be able to bridge differences in objectives and work together towards organizational goals.
Another aspect of collaboration required within an organization, is to tap knowledge and experience for process improvement in a large, global organization. The article suggests the need for online tools that can be employed to bridge these gaps and to enhance vertical, horizontal and global collaboration within the organization.…
We are quite excited to present Mr. Julian Weber, Managing Director of the software development firm -
Secure Link Services Ltd. In this post, he shares his experience about how Zoho became his go-to software vendor for ALL his business needs.
A little about Secure Link Services

In our most recent update we moved in “Recurring Expenses”, into your go-to invoicing software Zoho Invoice and your ever-so reliable accounting
software Zoho Books. With this addition, you can save yourself from the
hassle of recording recurring expenses over and over again. Read on as
we give you a heads up on this useful feature.
would incur basic recurring expenses on a monthly basis like expenses on
rentals, commuting charges, office maintenance charges, your Zoho Invoice and Zoho Books subscriptions, etc. This is going to be a whiff of fresh air for those of you who have been recording these periodical expenses.
Simply set up a recurring expense and the expense will automatically be
created after the specified period of time. The period of time could be
days, weeks, month or even years. In addition to this, while setting up
the expense you can categorize the type of expenses; select if the
expense is to be incurred forever or if it would end after a specific
date; mark it as billable; if marked billable you can even select the
customer who is to be associated with the expense.…
Cloudcamper provides cloud computing solutions and online software to small and medium business as well as to divisions within larger enterprises. The company is a reseller for both Zoho and Google Apps. Cloudcamper has its main office in Oostende, Belgium as well as five remote offices, each staffed by one of the company’s five partners.
The distributed nature of Cloudcamper skill sets, mirrors the distributed nature of the company’s work force. However, when a client needs a cloud solution that requires the talents of several Cloudcamper partners, the company has to act as a single, unified organization.
To that end, the company needed a way to coordinate the activities of its partners and its contract developers working on any given client project.
The Zoho Solution
For Cloudcamper, Zoho Projects provides cloud-based collaboration that supports the company’s structure and work style.…
Peep into your Zoho Invoice or Zoho Books account and you’ll spot our
brand new addition, “Online Partial Payments”. Earlier, we had the option
to record partial payments manually for invoices, we’ve extended that further to
online payments as well.
Most often in businesses, by mutual
consent from both the seller and the buyer, the payment is accepted in
installments. If your business works this way, then you have some real
good news here. To keep up with your customers’ installment payments could be
rather difficult. With the introduction of partial payments, this issue would never resurface again.
Send an invoice out to the
customer, choose the option to let the customer make partial payments
for that invoice. As the customer pays, the amount due for the
invoice is deducted and closed eventually; when the customer pays up the
entire amount due for that invoice.…
About a year ago we added bug tracking functionality to Zoho Projects
to help software teams easily submit, track and fix bugs.
Fast forward to now, and we’re pretty happy with the uptake it has gotten among customers. Many people have tried it, used it and purchased it. Many people also shared with us their feedback and how we could better tailor it to meet their needs. We were frequently asked to have bug tracking as a separate, stand-alone product, decoupled from the rest of Zoho Projects – and to make it even more affordable.
So we took those requests to heart and today we’re launching Zoho BugTracker, a standalone product that helps teams fix bugs fast.
has all of the now-familiar features. For example, it makes submitting a bug report dead-simple. You can even attach screenshots or documents of the offending behavior for the team to analyze.…
