I’ve previously talked about on-demand office productivity suite Zoho. I’m impressed by their offering and consider it ahead of Google aps in terms of functionality. Good to hear about them winning the award for “Best Enterprise Start-up” at the 2007 Crunchies Awards. The Crunchies are a project of GigaOm, Read/WriteWeb, VentureBeat and TechCrunch, and they recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, Internet and technology innovations of the year as determined by the Internet community.

The “Best Enterprise Start-up” category is for a start-up focused on enterprise or business-to-business applications and services. With over 82,000 nominations across 20 awards categories, Zoho won its category over finalists 37Signals, Attributor, EditGrid, and Ribbit.

In its write-up of the Zoho win, Duncan Riley of TechCrunch notes, “Zoho’s comprehensive online suite of 14 business applications ranging from document editing to CRM continues to lead the way in the move away from desktop computing to working in the cloud.”
