DUBAI — Dubai Economy and Zoho, a global technology company with a wide portfolio of products, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to make enterprise-level technology available and affordable for all businesses in Dubai and help them in their digital transformation journey.
The MoU was signed by Omar Bushahab, CEO, the Business Registration and Licensing sector, BRL, of Dubai Economy, and Ali Shabdar, Regional Director of MEA, Zoho Corp.
The MoU is a step towards making Dubai a trailblazer in digitalisation and global role model in driving a competitive knowledge economy, as targeted by the National Agenda 2021.
Through this agreement, local businesses registered with Dubai Economy can gain access to Zoho One, a unified cloud-based suite of over 45 applications, which seamlessly connects diverse functions of a business, for free for one year.

With Zoho One, businesses can run their sales, marketing, productivity, collaboration, HR management, finance and other functions on a single platform. This significantly lowers the entry barrier that many startups and SMEs face when adopting enterprise technology. The cloud-based apps enable businesses to run from anywhere and take advantage of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence to expedite their growth.
