Businesses today are seeking file management rather than simple document storage; multi-level security, compliance, and auditing rather than basic permission-level security; and enterprise-grade systems as opposed to one-off applications and patchwork platforms. With processes cutting across the platform, services, and application layers of Zoho's comprehensive technology stack, WorkDrive is changing the way businesses do work and offering the value that is otherwise unavailable in the market.
"Context is key for unified file systems. The business workflow of the sales department, for example, will differ from that of an HR department, and so on. Businesses are looking for a system that takes into account the disparate needs of each team within an organization and operates in the unique context of a given business's workflow," said Raju Vegesna, Zoho Chief Evangelist. "This context can only be achieved if the vendor providing file storage is the same vendor creating and maintaining the business applications using it. Across the industry, file service solutions are either cobbled together through acquisitions or offered piecemeal by multiple vendors. WorkDrive is the first of its kind, bringing together storage, permissions, and workplace apps at a tremendous value to businesses."
Zoho is also announcing its revamped Workplace suite, which includes Cliq, Notebook, Connect, Writer, Sheet, Show, Showtime, Mail, and Meeting. Among other new capabilities, Workplace now features an integrated app dashboard that houses customizable widgets that display information from each of the nine apps included in the suite. Here are some of the key features of WorkDrive and the revamped Workplace suite:
