Zoho Projects is project management and collaboration software that was built to organize your business in the most efficient and simplest way possible, no matter what type of business you run or how many colleagues you have. The best proof that Zoho’s project management tool is extremely versatile and scalable is its base of customers in different verticals and parts of the world. And there’s more than Zoho Projects; the company’s business suite counts other applications such as Zoho CRM, Zoho Invoices and apps like Taskz to help you simplify your professional life by integrating all these easy-to-use apps into one powerful tool.
We wanted to find out more about Zoho Projects and the team behind it, so we got in touch with the company and had the pleasure to interview the company’s product marketing manager Celina.

You recently launched your iPhone task management app Taskz. Will this app be integrated with Zoho Projects as well?
No, since we are working to support mobile apps for other devices like Android, Blackberry and of course iPad.
Do you plan on integrating other apps with your software in the near future?
Yes, based on customer needs and demand.
How can Zoho Projects be integrated into other Zoho software?
We already integrate with Zoho Invoices to generate invoices for client payments. We do have a seamless integration with our Office Apps like Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show. In addition, users can import their contacts from Zoho CRM and Mail Suite.
Your company has teams in different countries across the world. How do you manage to keep your teams close together other than through the use of your own software of course?
Zoho Mail and Zoho Chat are our heroes in connecting with our globally scattered teams.
A classic; Why should our visitors choose Zoho Projects and not one of the competing SaaS solutions?
Zoho Projects is the one-stop solution for all your project management and collaboration needs. We even offer a BugTracker add-on for software development teams. While rest of the SaaS vendors offer just one solution.
Do you have any project management tips you can share with our readers?
In today’s world, project teams must collaborate and get things done working across globally separated teams and be productive too. Today's small and medium businesses can't afford a costly on-premise project management solution to run their business with tighter budgets. But a cloud project management solution is the ideal one since it is affordable, easy to set up with no maintenance overheads. And above; all your data is safe, secure and is accessible from anywhere and on any type of devices (laptops, mobiles and tablets) with just an internet connection.
Which other SaaS apps do you use at Zoho?
As a marketing team, we use other Saas Apps for SEO tracking, landing pages and web analytics.
What may we expect from Zoho Projects in the future?
Projects 4.0 is the next big thing our development team is working on. We have more exciting features lined up along with a refreshing new look and feel. The new Projects 4.0 will be the best interface our customers can experience…
