Online office suite Zoho enters the project management realm with a few attention-getting features. One is import support for Microsoft Project files, and another is a consolidate, real-time view of what’s going on with, and between, project members.
Tasks, milestones, documents, meeting coordinators and report generation are all there, as one would hope for in any project management package. But being an online suite, Zoho’s Projects 2.0 provides a “Project Stream” that shows a condensed view of all the latest project activity, group chat rooms and forums for back-and-forth discussions, wikis and live document collaboration, and a tabbed interface that seems pretty navigable for anyone.
All in all, it expands on Zoho’s strengths and further separates the suite from its Google Docs competition. Here’s Zoho Projects 2.0 in video action:
Zoho Projects requires a sign-up to use, and states that it’s free for unlimited numbers of users.
