Muscat: Zoho Corp., a leading global technology company, announced that it has incorporated 13 generative artificial intelligence (AI application extensions and integrations, powered by ChatGPT, into various Zoho applications).
Generative AI is the latest step along the company's innovation roadmap, blending third-party intelligence with Zia, Zoho's powerful AI engine, which runs on Zoho's secure cloud. Leveraging Zoho's decade-long investment in AI, this integration model greatly improves customer experience, adds considerable value, and better protects user privacy.
"The fusion of ChatGPT's generative AI with our homegrown AI features will provide users with a more intuitive, efficient, and secure experience, reflecting Zoho's deep R&D-first culture," said Hyther Nizam, President, Middle East and Africa at Zoho. "As a technology partner, Zoho's customers continue to rely on us to keep them ahead of the curve while retaining core tenets like privacy and value, which they have come to respect. We will continue to deliver on this promise without compromise."
Available on its marketplace, Zoho's new generative AI extensions, powered by ChatGPT, complement the broad portfolio of AI technology Zoho already supports. This new technology has been contextually integrated into Zoho's applications and can be leveraged right away by users of all stripes:
