Zoho One, the unified and cloud-based operating system for business, has revealed a major update in its 21st version. This one includes five new apps, three new services, and seven major platform enhancements.
Raju Vegesna, Chief Evangelist at Zoho, said the following statement about the new Zoho One”
“The experience that employees, customers, partners, and suppliers get when dealing with businesses is typically a reflection of how that business and its systems are structured internally. Today, the majority of systems are disconnected as a result of siloed solutions offered by vendors. Unification of a business requires unification of the underlying systems, which can then provide a truly unified experience, internally and externally, along with unified insights. Zoho One was created with this vision and keeps expanding its unbeatable value with new additions and improvements year over year.”
The improvements to this operating system include the following:
Unified and Real-time Insights
- Embedded and Conversational BI: Zoho One now features embedded and conversational analytics that enables decision makers to submerge into their data and gather cross-departmental insights with natural language commands using Zia Insights. 1,500+ pre-built analytics reports and dashboards are provided for quicker and more precise critical business decisions.
- Data Preparation: DataPrep, powered by machine learning, helps business users integrate, model, cleanse, transform, enrich, and catalog data. It also allows an integration with Zoho Analytics or a third-party app for newly discovered insights.
- Work Graph: Zoho’s new back-end service, according to them, is “an industry-first for business software, maps interactions between people, resources, systems, and processes by studying signals and their strength across the board to build a business-wide work graph that is specific to each individual within the organization. The result of a work graph will be seen in the day-to-day productivity of users across various apps.”
