Zoho Corp waives fees for applications for small businesses
Zoho Corporation, a global company that offers the most comprehensive suite of business software applications in the industry, has launched its Small Business Emergency Subscription Assistance Program (ESAP) to lighten the financial burden on small business customers due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With the ESAP, Zoho is helping its small business customers in the UAE and other parts of the world weather this global crisis. For up to 20,000 qualified paying customers with 25 employees or less, Zoho is waiving the cost of every single application they currently use, for up to three months.
Zoho is a 24-year-old, bootstrapped, privately held company with more than 50 million users located in over 180 countries. While Zoho has grown significantly upmarket, serving mid-market and enterprise customers in addition to small businesses, the company believes that for the broader economy to stay healthy, SMBs must stay healthy and viable. ESAP is intended to lighten the financial burden put upon its small business customers during this chaotic and difficult period.
Earlier this month, Zoho launched Remotely, a virtual productivity platform of 11 collaboration applications, provided to businesses of all sizes around the world for free, so that companies could effectively make the transition to remote work. Since its release 2 weeks ago, more than 5,000 new companies are running on the platform, and that number is increasing every day. Zoho has seen an average of 500% growth in usage of its collaboration apps and 1,000% growth in daily new users of Zoho Meeting.
