Zoho Creator Features New Web Interface, Provides Solution for Mobile Workforce and Includes Customer Portal Feature
PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
today announced a new version of Zoho
Creator, a powerful and easy-to-use platform for creating online
database applications. Zoho Creator has obtained a large, loyal user
base of five million users worldwide thanks to its robust, user-friendly
feature set which includes a drag-and-drop UI for creating forms,
extensive business logic and data analytics options, and much more. Now,
Zoho has taken its online database software to the next level with a
broad set of upgrades and features.
"The success of Zoho Creator lies in the fact that businesses can build
useful, sophisticated and custom database applications without spending
a lot of time or money. Users have shown that by creating over 750,000
applications on Zoho Creator," said Raju Vegesna (News - Alert), Zoho evangelist. "We
now take this to the next level, empowering companies to efficiently
create and collaborate on these custom applications."
The All-New Zoho Creator
New Web Interface Makes Application Building Process Faster
The user interface has been redesigned to offer Zoho Creator users an
even better, more intuitive experience. Since the steps of the
navigation process are better laid out, the application building process
has been simplified, thus decreasing the amount of time it takes to
create a new, custom database application. The features like dashboard
for applications, the search tab, inline editing, and contextual linking
enhance accessibility and organization inside the builder, thus
enhancing the overall experience for the user.
Mobile Applications Provide Access to Critical Information
With mobility being critical to businesses, Zoho Creator offers native
apps for iOS and Android devices, allowing business users to manage
their apps and access the data on their mobile devices. The new mobile
apps allow users to access their Creator apps - personal, shared and
workspace apps - along with the forms within the apps. Users can add,
edit and delete data within the app. Users can also search, filter,
group, sort and apply custom actions on data. Creator mobile apps
support all deluge events.
In addition, Zoho Creator now includes an SMS notification feature that
enables users to pass on time-critical information instantly. The
feature is integrated with major SMS services such as Clickatell (News - Alert),
Twilio, Clockwork SMS, Screen Magic and Hoiio.
Robust Customer Portal Feature Improves Collaboration
For organizations that need to service a large number of customers, the
new customer portal feature allows business owners to share critical
applications and information with important users. These users simply
log into a private portal with a username and password; they do not have
to be Zoho users to access the portal. Once in the portal, users can
access the relevant applications, view reports and find the resources
that the portal owner has elected to share with them. For example,
customers can log into an online store's ordering portal and place
orders through the order management application, view their past orders
and even resolve any support issues related to ordering. This feature
releases the resources of the organization as users can now manage the
applications themselves through this portal.
Building on the success of Zoholics,
Zoho's annual user conference, Zoho will be hosting a Creator-centric
Zoholics: Developers event which is scheduled to take place March 20-21,
2014, in San Francisco. More details about the event are available at http://www.zoho.com/zoholics/developers.html.

Zoho Creator is available immediately, and users can sign up for a free,
30-day trial to evaluate the software. There are a variety of picing
plans to accommodate the differing needs of the users. The basic plan
starts at $25 per month. The Zoho Creator iOS and Android apps are
