2014 - Website building service Zoho Sites goes completely free. Beware Google Sites
With Zoho Sites, you can now create, edit and host beautiful websites, for free. With this update, you have all the tools you need to create your personal web-space: unlimited pages, storage, bandwidth, galleries, mobile and desktop and much more. In comparison, other site builders, like Squarespace, Wix and Weebly, are pretty good, if you have the necessary fat wallet. So where is the catch? Zoho developers say that are not going to spend millions on advertising, nor they are going to advertise on your website. But thus they move to a completely crowd driven marketing. If you are reading this news - their marketing really works.
2010 - Google Sites vs Zoho Projects for project management in Google Apps
As you know, Google Apps has no specialized project management solution, and this is very disappointing, as there are many other useful utilities for online workgroups there. However, there are three tools that can be used to solve this problem. And the first of them is Google Sites. You can use Google Sites to manage one large project, or create a site for each small project in it (there are even some templates for project sites). Since Google Sites is, in fact, a wiki, you can easily work with the project documentation there. In addition, Google Sites allows you to embed group calendar (Google Calendar), task list (Google Tasks) and documents from Google Docs. All these elements are very useful for project management, but of course, task collaboration in this solution - is the weakness.
Zoho is positioning its online suite as an organic addition to Google Apps. To work with Zoho apps you can use your GMail or Google Apps account. Recently Zoho also implemented the opportunity to download documents from Google Docs to Zoho Projects, synchronize the calendar in Zoho Projects with Google Calendar and embed the Zoho Projects gadget with a list of recent project activities and your task list to GMail, Google Sites or iGoogle. And the own Zoho Projects functionality includes excellent tools for project planning, collaboration, communications and result monitoring. One project in Zoho Projects can be managed for free.
