For Businesses & Employees to Communicate Remotely

Communicate remotely for work using Zoho Cliq and sync communications across all your company's desktop and mobile devices. This subscription cloud software enables your team to keep in touch online by giving your company a central hub for communication and notifications.

Create various channels and invite participants to chat as a group or send private messages directly to individuals. This app lets you type messages to everyone in the channel and get a read response from those who have seen your message. Send images and other files through the channel for everyone to have access to.

Go beyond simple text messaging and use the built-in audio and video features to communicate with your team. Give anyone a quick call to ask them a question or invite a group of people at once for a video conference meeting and even share your screen to better show what you are talking about.

Select messages and turn them into tasks or reminders for later so the system can keep track of things for you.  Also, you can integrate Zoho Cliq with almost any other application or website to ping alerts in specific channels for you when specific actions take place over your business. Integrate this communication app with your website, support ticket system, CRM, and much more.

While you are in a meeting you can browse around the Zoho Cliq app and look for information and other chats.

Select a text message from one of your co workers and create a customized reminder by adding a note and setting a due date and time for the reminder notification to pop up.

Or assign the entire list of people in the conversation about the reminder notification when the time comes.

Star Messages to Save for Later

If you do not want to use notification reminders then just star a message to save it for later. Starring a message lets you check your starred messages list later on to check for important messages and communications. You can assign sub-categories for starred messages such as important, Todo, Note, Boss, or Follow-up. You can start more than just text messages, mark favorite images, charts, and more to quickly reference back to later.
