Zoho - Comprehensive Suite of Office Tools

Zoho - Affordable software for individuals, small & medium business

Zoho offers the most comprehensive suite of Office and Productivity tools on the web. The word process and spreadsheet are great -- fully functional, fast and easy to use online tools, that can be exported in a wide range for formats, including to each other. For example, a Zoho spreadsheet can be embedded in a Zoho Writer or Show document and be automatically updated when the spreadsheet is changed.

Show is a good start at a presentation program, but only offers a basic editing tool set, with no export cability. There is a real-time sharing ability, so you can share your presentation with others while speaking on a conference call.

The Virtual Office has potential for a class organizational tool, though it will cost some money if you have more than 9 students. Zoho Planner is very basic, and I did not notice any sharing capabilities.

All in all, this has great potential. I am seriously considering using this for my online class on Spreadsheet and Presentations this coming fall.

Hi Alan,

Firstly, thanks for your kind words on Zoho Writer and Sheet. Zoho Show was released only a few days back and we are working hard on making it more friendly, feature-rich and fast. (and hence the Beta tag :-) ) But stay tuned, we'll be releasing updates frequently. Thanks once again. Glad you find Zoho useful as a teaching tool. Do send us your feedback.

Regards,
Krithiga

have you considered using edeskonline.com. It is also quite comprehensive and has awesome speed. Much faster than any other online office application that i have seen till date.
