AdventNet Introduces Zoho Virtual Office

Web-based collaboration software allows several users to work on projects from remote locations

Pleasanton, Calif. -- Aug. 9, 2004--AdventNet today announced the release of Zoho Virtual Office, Web-based, groupware, and collaboration software for Linux and Windows.

The need for collaboration is essential in today's work environment, as a number of workers tend to be in remote locations. Companies understand that team collaboration is necessary, especially when it comes to sharing business documents, budgets, and presentations. With this in mind, Zoho Virtual Office applications include: Webmail, documents, calendar, tasks, notes, contacts, bookmarks, group discussions, instant messaging and many other useful features. It allows several concurrent users at different locations to create multiple groups, and facilitate the sharing of information from both inside and outside the company.

Information can be accessed from any computer that has an Internet connection and a Web browser, allowing teams to work securely as if they were in the same physical location. Individuals and groups can collect, communicate, organize, and share information, as the virtual collaboration platform delivers the functionality for many participants to augment a common deliverable. Virtual office runs on Windows and Linux machines, and is designed to increases employee productivity by allowing individuals and groups of users to seamlessly share information.

With Virtual Office you can:

  • Easily access information anywhere
  • Instantly bring together virtual team members
  • Share, review, and edit information securely

  • Know which team members are online and offline
  • Track, manage, and organize meeting and projects

  • Create notes to collect important information
  • Integrate e-mail, task, calendar, and notes to form a seamless collaboration platform

"The idea behind Zoho Virtual Office is to provide a complete Web-based virtual office solution which can be accessed from every location and on each computer with any operating system and Web browser. It leverages the power of the Web to drive business efficiency," said Raju Vegesna, product manager at AdventNet.
