News : Zoo Announces the Launch of Zoho Developer
Pleasanton, CA, USA, July 28, 2016 -- Zoho announced the launch of Zoho Developer, a program that provides independent software vendors (ISVs) and application developers the tools and resources to create extensions and build custom applications. Zoho also launched Zoho Marketplace, an online store where users can buy extensions and custom-built applications and developers can sell them. Together, Zoho Developer and Zoho Marketplace establish a platform that caters to Zoho’s current base of users worldwide.
"With Zoho Marketplace and Zoho Developer, Zoho evolves from a product suite into a platform," said Raju Vegesna, chief evangelist of Zoho Corp. "On one hand, Zoho Marketplace empowers our customers with tools, extensions, and applications that complement their Zoho products so they can focus on their business. On the other hand, Zoho Developer gives ISVs and software developers a platform to develop solutions, and access to Zoho’s vast user base to whom they can sell these solutions."
"The typical marketplace operator takes a significant cut of each partner sale, up to 30 percent or more in some cases," said Vegesna. "We don’t buy into that model. Our developers are doing us a great service by strengthening our ecosystem. We don't believe they should pay us a commission on top of it. That's why we don't charge a commission on marketplace transactions."
