Zoho embeds ChatGPT into Apps to Enhance Generative Artificial Intelligence Capabilities

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.

We will continue to deliver on this promise without compromise."
