Zoho is launching five apps on the Google Apps Marketplace, making the productivity suite developer the largest software provider on the marketplace with 11 apps. While some vendors (i.e. Netkiller) also provide a similar number of features to Google Apps customers, Zoho is the largest software developer on the marketplace measured by number of apps.
Zoho’s new applications include Zoho Creator, Zoho Discussions, Zoho Meeting, Zoho Reports and Zoho Wiki. Currently, Zoho has tens of thousands of customers using Zoho applications in the Google Apps Marketplace, which launched a little over a year ago.
The startup’s strong presence on the Google Apps marketplace is interesting considering that Google Apps is actually a competitor to Zoho’s web-based productivity suite. As we reported last Fall, company was seeing less than 500 installs total of its apps per week (at the time Zoho has four apps on the marketplace). Zoho Evangelist Raju Vegesna tells us that number has gone up to nearly 1000 app installs per week with the addition of new apps.
