In 2011 Salesforce.com took over the project management solution from Manymoon for an estimated US$25-US$35 million, and proceeded to rename it Do.com.

Last week however, just 2 years later, they announced that Do.com will soon be discontinued.

Since 2011 Zoho Projects online project management software has been growing and growing and is now packed full of feastures as well as getting the mobile app aas a standard free addition to all subscribers, allowing you to effectively manage projects from your mobile device.

Mobile devices are being used more and more. We do everything on them.  Receiving email is just one of the daily tasks we all do and take for granted.


Zoho Campaigns, the powerful and affordable online email marketing solution from Zoho now includes mobile friendly email templates as standard.  But what does “responsive” mean?

This means that the email, how it is formatted on the screen, the sizing of the images and placement of the content of the email, looks great on any device including tablets, smartphones and of course desktops and laptops.

Zoho People, the affordable and easy to use online HR solution from Zoho now allows users to save draft data when adding records in forms.


What use is this I hear you say? 


Well, in all of our implementations of Zoho People one of the first things the users ask is "Can I save this and come back to it later?"  This is especially the case on the longer forms such as adding monthly expenses, where they may have a stack of receipts to get through.
