In a press statement, Vijay Sundaram, Zoho’s Chief Strategy Officer, said, “the nature of work has undeniably changed, and Workplace has grown to meet that change. Businesses are not looking to solve a collaboration problem, they are looking to solve a custom invoicing problem or sales enablement problem, or support problem. Collaboration platforms need to facilitate better business outcomes, not just improve productivity. Workplace, through pre-built integrations with powerful business apps and context and continuity across applications, devices, and departments, stands alone in having the vision and functionality to mee the broad business needs of today.”
