Track your expenses with Zoho Expense

The Zoho Expense integration with Office 365 makes keeping track of your business expenses even easier. Emailed invoices received in Outlook  are automatically converted into receipts and processed in Zoho Expense, streamlining expense submission, approval and reporting.

Alyssa works in sales and marketing for a coffee roaster that has just started supplying a nation-wide hotel chain. This means a lot more travel for Alyssa as she visits hotels in each region to secure the relationship.

Because she is the first point of contact for suppliers, Alyssa often gets their invoices emailed to her. But because she doesn’t deal with paying invoices, it’s inefficient for her to sort through her emails looking for invoices and forwarding them on – particularly when she’s on the road. To make her productivity tools really work for her and save her time, she uses the Zoho Expense App for Office 365.

The Zoho Expense App monitors Alyssa’s Outlook email inbox, and recognizes when she’s been sent an invoice. Then it manages those invoices in the way Alyssa has decided – it can flag them, move them to a specific folder, or forward them straight to her company’s finance department.

This way, her suppliers get paid faster and Alyssa can maintain one point of contact with them – without having to deal with any of the payment processing.

Stefan owns a growing business franchise brokerage that aims to open two new offices this year. Stefan’s business uses Office 365 and iGlobe CRM to gather insights and store customer information.

With the iGlobe Add-in, Stefan’s sales team can immediately attribute emails to specific contacts in their iGlobe CRM, and relate emails to items in the sales pipeline. When they’re working on a specific client’s reporting in Excel or drafting a proposal in Word they can access crucial client information without leaving the program – meaning their customer communications are always correct and up-to-date, helping them close deals no matter where they are.

Gather feedback efficiently with Panda Poll

Create polls and gather information right from your SharePoint site using Panda Poll. Make a survey with up to five response options and show users real-time results once they submit their answer.  

Michelle leads the HR department at a technology firm and is organizing this year’s employee recognition awards. She’s already come up with some potential themes, but wants to poll the whole business. Rather than send out emails (which frequently get ignored) Michelle looks to customize Office 365 to perform the task.

The tech company Michelle works for uses SharePoint to collaborate and work on projects every day, so she decides to use Panda Poll for SharePoint.

Using Panda Poll, Michelle creates two polls with several theme options and potential event dates to display on the company’s main SharePoint site. Everyone can answer each poll and view a graph displaying the results, and Michelle can quickly make a decision on the most popular day and theme.

Translate faster with Translator App

Translator for Outlook is an add-in that enables you to translate email messages on the fly. It’s great for anyone who works in a second language every day and wants to read messages in their native language.

Susan is the communications and marketing manager for a travel booking website. The website features deals on hotels and activities worldwide, with information on the destination’s culture and history.

Working with the hotels and other providers, Susan often receives emails in languages she’s not familiar with. So rather than engage in awkward back-and-forward trying to clarify terms in languages that either Susan or her contacts aren’t familiar with, Susan uses the Translator App for Office.

This way when she receives emails in languages she doesn’t understand, the Translator App translates the email directly in Outlook, and a Susan can write a response in her native language and translate it back to the recipient’s language, all without leaving her email window or having to rely on awkward online translators.
