"When it comes to meeting user requests to enhance our applications, we've repeatedly demonstrated that we'll use third-party technology as well as our own," said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist. "The latest improvements to Zoho Creator reinforce our source-neutral stance. The integrations with PayPal and Google Docs bring a lot to the table for our users. Both are proven, widely-used technologies with APIs that let us unite their payments and forms advantages with our system for building online custom applications."
