Zoho & OpenAI join forces

by | Zoho News and Updates

In the dynamic world of business and technology, embracing the latest advancements and transforming them into mechanisms for business growth is more than just a strategy—it’s a necessity. As proud partners of Zoho, we at A2Z Cloud are committed to staying at the cutting edge of these transformations, leveraging the latest in tech to provide businesses with robust, innovative solutions.

Today, we’re thrilled to share a development that marks the next big stride in the tech business sphere: the integration of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Zoho’s suite of business applications.

ChatGPT and Generative AI have become ever-present in the business landscape and for good reason. From composing emails and generating summaries to resolving customer tickets and crafting social media content, their applications are wide-ranging and versatile. When these capacities of OpenAI are integrated into a robust ecosystem like Zoho’s, the benefits are multifold.

In this blog post, we’re going to dig deep into the exciting possibilities brought by this integration. We’ll chat about the latest Zoho features and how they turbocharge different aspects of business operations and customer experience.

*Please note that, at present, a few of the OpenAI integrations are only accessible within the US data centres. However, Zoho is working on making them available in the EU. This is an excellent opportunity to familiarise yourself with these features and prepare your business ahead of their release.

The future of business tech is here

Zoho’s partnership with OpenAI marks a significant moment in the business tech landscape. This collaboration equips businesses with a distinctive advantage, boosting the functionalities of Zoho’s suite of tools and creating a place where people and AI can work together for better business results. By integrating ChatGPT with Zia (which is Zoho’s own AI), you can productively produce responses and insights that are relevant and timely.

This transformational integration breathes new life into various components of Zoho’s suite of products, including Zoho CRM, Desk, Social, Mail, Assist, SalesIQ, Notebook, Meeting, DataPrep, and Writer.

Conversation Summary
To understand the context of a chat or a call, agents usually need to read the entire chat transcript or listen to the call recording, which can be time-consuming and tedious. With the integration between ChatGPT and Zia, agents can get a quick summary of the entire chat transcript/call with succinct bullet points. This helps save the agent’s time and makes it easier for them to understand the problem.
