According to network sources, Zoom, which specializes in the provision of videoconferencing services, is in the process of developing its own postal client and calendar, and it is expected that the launch of these services will help to turn the company's platform into a full-fledged competition for Google Workspace and Microsoft Office.
Zoom's desire to develop new services is understandable because, with the easing of the restrictive measures imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, the growth of the videoconferencing platform has slowed down. The calendar and post office are being used extensively as planning tools, so the availability of their own services will help Zoom to integrate more deeply into companies that already use the video link platform.
On the other hand, Google and Microsoft have been trying to replace Zoom in this segment, so there will be a lot of competition to do. Even Google, with its set of extremely popular free instruments, such as Gmail and GoogleDocs, has taken years to take away a share of the corporate market from Microsoft. Few companies can afford to join this segment, let alone gain a real share of the market.
Zoom officials have so far refrained from commenting on the launch of these services; according to the source, they can be presented to the general public at the upcoming Zoomtopia conference to be held in November this year.
