Corporate Partner Zoho

At Zoho Corp, we have been crafting business software for the cloud with passion and single-minded devotion which is headquartered in Chennai, India. Our company and our culture are our life’s work. We are happy that it is powering the work lives of over 45 million users across 180 countries. From solopreneurs to small/ medium business to enterprises – at Zoho, we strive to transform lives.

Zoho is a product to meet every need. They are available under one single integrated suite, Zoho One, that can put a business completely on the cloud.

 

Zoho is committed to spending your money wisely. We invest more in product development and customer support than in sales and marketing. Our investment in people is a vital part of our R&D edge. We have a comprehensive program to hire high school students and train them – a program we call Zoho Schools of Learning. Over 15% of our engineers come from this program. Not only is the program good for our company, it is also good for the communities we live in. 

Zoho is a company which has a very different perspective of CSR. Social impact and corporate social responsibility are central to the mission and activities of Sridhar Vembu, the CEO and co-founder of enterprise software vendor Zoho. They work towards combining profit & positive impact as well in a holistic way. Business activity and doing good for society have to go together by nurturing local talent. 

 

Our association with Zoho started from the year 2017. As Annapoorna has scaled its operations from a few hundred school children to five hundred thousand children, it has increasingly leveraged digitalization and automation of infrastructure and processes such as invoicing, payments, reporting and data collection to achieve a high level of operational efficiency and financial accountability. To our surprise, Zoho did not approach us like any other company does for the CSR activities. No cheque book diplomacy as well. They offered support to Annapoorna in the form of life-time access to a suite of cloud-based software applications, absolutely free – email spacing, complete ERP & payment systems required to run small & medium enterprises, analytics & storage spacing. They also provide Annapoorna with a team of developers who support customization of this software to serve the complex needs of Annapoorna. They are looking forward to a case study as to how IT can leverage their support to NGO like Annapoorna which can bring about our capabilities of handling large data in an efficient way.

 

We continue engaging with them in a long standing way. Look forward to continuing this association in the times to come.
