 Zoho Reinvents Its Cloud Storage With Workdrive

If you would ask me to name the most innovative IT companies right now, Zoho is the first name that would come in my mind. With its revolutionary products, the company has brought a revolution in the cloud-service and software development market. Its products are being compared to tech giants like Salesforce, and its services like office suite are being widely used by enterprises across the world.

If you are aware, Zoho is the same company which back in 2017 turned everyone’s heads up by bundling 40 applications and launching them as a single product called Zoho One. No wonder it has reached 50 million customers this year.

And, now the company is back once again, with its latest offering for customers: Zoho WorkDrive.

What is Zoho WorkDrive?

From here, all team members can easily access them. Not only this, but you can also organize all the files in team folders so that they are easily accessible to everyone.

Mismanagement and disorganization are one of the biggest productivity killers.

Also, from the cost point of view, Zoho WorkDrive is a better option as compared to other alternatives like Google Drive for business and Microsoft OneDrive.
