Zoho Unveils Line of Apple Watch Apps
Zoho is wasting no time making a presence for itself on Apple’s newest gadget, as the company has unveiled a new line of apps for the Apple Watch dubbed Zoho Business Apps.
The first apps available in Zoho’s Business App series include Zoho Expense, Zoho Books and Taskz. The apps aim to provide convenient access to Zoho’s business application features that take seconds to execute but can be inconvenient to perform on a smartphone or laptop. Learn more about each app below:
* Zoho Expense – This app enables users to track mileage directly from their watch. Users simply start and stop a trip with a tap, and the mileage is automatically calculated and added as an expense in Zoho Expense.
* Zoho Books – This app enables users to track time spent on tasks. Once recorded, an invoice can be sent from the Zoho Books app on the Web or mobile. Plus, users can view unpaid invoices and unpaid bills, as well as set and send reminders to customers for unpaid invoices.
* Taskz – This app provides reminder notifications for tasks created in Zoho Mail. Reminders will be viewable on the Apple Watch display, as well as can be felt via the Watch’s haptic feedback. Pending tasks for the day and due dates will also be listed.
“Apple Watch gives people yet another unique way to work,” said Raju Vegesna, Zoho chief evangelist. “If you have a few hours of number crunching or heavy research, you'll likely do that on a desktop or laptop. If your task takes just a few minutes – entering expense information, for instance – a smartphone is probably the preferred tool. Now, Apple Watch is the tool for tasks that take a few seconds, like getting task reminders and tracking time or mileage from your wrist.”
