The Ultimate Choice for Small Businesses

Zoho One has helped us stay on top of all the things that are important in our business. From managing customers and leads to staying on top of our finances. It has been very useful in streamlining a lot of the processes we had in our company and finding new and meaningful ways to improve upon them in both time and cost. For certain processes that we weren't really sure about how to do it right (like HR) - it made these things much easier for us and gave us a system to keep all our challenges in sight rather than being overwhelmed by them.

Pros

We have tried many, many, many programs in our history. Zoho One was the one that answered all of our problems. Imagine every single thing your business needs to operate and I'm pretty confident that Zoho One includes that. It has everything including a CRM, accounting, analytics, automated marketing, social management, HR, and even custom apps. And it does all of this extremely well. Even on the CRM side - you can customize it to your heart's content, including creating your own tables and interactions between them. All of this is great. If you are a micro-business, then you can handle a lot of normally complicated tasks and processes much easier in Zoho One. On the other hand, if you are a small or medium-sized business with many people controlling different aspects of your business - they can all collaborate and do their jobs here too. And the pricing? It is amazing. I was shocked when they announced this. We were subscribing to four or five of their products at a much higher rate per month. We were actually considering building our own system internally to save money and then they announced Zoho One. It gave us nearly everything in their catalog of programs - at a much lower rate than we were already paying. I mean the value is phenominal.

Cons

The only complaint I have is that some of the programs don't talk to each other as well as I would like. For instance, their Connect program has a lot of features that work well with project management and job tasks. However, it wasn't possible to attach the data in our Kanban lists to data in our CRM. I think if they could fully open each app so that its data was interchangable with all other apps - that would take Zoho One to a whole different level.

Reasons for Choosing Zoho One

We actually tried all of these products, but none of them offered everything we needed or were designed around business processes that didn't align with our own. Zoho One allowed us to do that: Customize the way the software worked for us rather than having to design our business around the limits of the software.

Lots of Features, but takes some work to fully integrate

I have used Zoho for my own business and also implemented it for several clients. 4 years ago, I loved everything about the platform and loved the integrated nature of apps (books, expense, inventory, CRM), however, the more I had to push the customisation of Zoho, the more barriers I found and cracks started to appear in their polished promises. I still believe that Zoho has a big offering for small businesses as long as they do not need customised process flows or integrations. I have decided to move my business away from using Zoho and have actually downgraded in functionality to another "business platform" provider on a lifetime deal. I will be fully evaluating Zoho for future clients as I have spent far too many weeks pushing out project deadlines due to poor inter-Zoho integrations.

Pros

A HUGE bang for the buck. Getting access to all Zoho apps for one value price is super appealing and great value. All the apps a business needs in a single platform Easy to administer User friendly screens (mostly)

Cons

Apps are not as integrated as they could be. I spent a long time when consulting for several companies trying to customise their integrations between Zoho apps (that really should be there out of the box). Zoho Flow (Zoho's answer to Zapier) goes someway to help integrate their apps, but still some apps just cannot be integrated as needed (Bookings and CRM, Bookings and Inventory, for example). Zoho's integrations with 3rd party services and apps sometimes are way better than their own apps. Their all-in-one platform approach often means that the main competitors offer much better features and functionality (e.g. Meetings vs Zoom, Bookings vs Calendly, Campaigns vs Active Campaign). Their strong point is definitely CRM, Books, and Inventory, which are all very strong products. Support is hit and miss. I have had responses within minutes and then other tickets I have had to chase for nearly a week to get a response. Sometimes I had to explain the issue several times before I got more than a canned response.

Reasons for Choosing Zoho One

Perceived value vs price & functionality.

Reasons for Switching to Zoho One

Price. Zoho is way cheaper and much better suited for small businesses

Zoho One Daily User

I'm very satisfied, I'm very technical and have a lot of skills so doing some of the stuff that most people are unable to do I can do for myself by a little bit of research and a little bit of time invested. Lots of reports, you can track almost anything that you do inside that database, which means you can track anything your employees do. Personally I'm not a spymaster and I really don't care to spend my time looking at what my employees are doing on a daily basis, but when there's a question I'll use it to verify what they've been up to. If you have the money, you can save yourself a lot of time, if you're technical you can do it yourself otherwise, you can work with your zoho one partner and they can make your entire environment do whatever magical thoughts you have come out of your head. Yeah there's some limitations some quirks but it's a really great platform so far.

Pros

Zoho One, is an overall enterprise platform gravitate in and around the CRM application first and foremost. We use it every single day. it's highly customizable, flexible integrations galore. We use the email templates quite frequently, that's a real timesaver. We’ve integrated RingCentral our VoIP phone system; with that you can click call any contact in your database. If you have any understanding of coding you can create whatever it is that you want, that said you also need the time to do it. if not you can use your zoho one partner or zoho one support. If you have the money you can work with a zoho partner and they will make your entire system cook eggs washing dishes and mop the floors. The functionality's available or just endless and it's only limited by your imagination. Zoho One support group does not have the intuition or business understanding on how you need to accomplish your tasks do not rely upon them to give you any kind of insight or guidance they can only answer specific questions that you ask them. if they don't know they will do the research and get back to you.

Cons

I’d the cons with Zoho One there is a learning curve, but isn't that the case with anything that you engage? My impression at first was that this thing was ready to go the moment I turned it on… Oh no not the case. but if you give it time you'll figure out exactly what you need and you can get that addressed by support.

Reasons for Choosing Zoho One

Salesforce is astronomically pricey, in addition to that I have to hire a full-time programmer just to use the system. That’s like needing a mechanic on staff so you can drive your car, that's just ridiculous. Microsoft Dynamics requires you to work with a partner and their minimum investment upfront was $5000. I really wasn't ready to spend that kind of money, I couldn't justify it. I could program Microsoft Dynamics myself and I'm still required to start off with that partner and pay them that $5000 minimum bound.

Great promise. Big hassle.

Pros

It's got everything that I want -- if it would only work. I had such high hopes. And I love what it's supposed to be capable of. After a year, it's bugs every day. Ugh.

Cons

I'm constantly battling bugs. The CRM works. We've had weeks and weeks of the accounting not syncing with our bank Support has been wrong, dismissive, unhelpful, and poor communicators. That's been true of MANY BUGS in non-CRM apps. Bugs. Poor support.

Under Priced, Complicated, & Impress Features Ahead of its time!

Uniquely advanced, great for a midsized business, or a company with at least a dozen users to hundreds of users. But for a contractor with less than a handful of users, it's very complicated.

Pros

1. Their AI tracking of lead systems alone is an inexpensive tool that's beyond today's standards of capabili. 2. Unlimited tracking of website visits with a simple Javascript is by far the most detailedinterface! 3 unlimited domain create at no additional expense is a major plus. Especially when running lead generating campaigns. 4. When Covid-19 restrain hit, the ZOHO team added Go Meeting with basic capabilitiesat no extra cost, and improved features at a reason price. 7. Almost identical capabilitiesto the multi million AI CRM by Adobe. But at price of $600 a year. 8. Pre sales customer sales reps will design a workflow model based on your needs. This is a huge saving of time when considering the many hours required onboarding into a new CRM. 9. More than 40 apps included! 10. Having the capability to custom create tabs containing documents and pictures within each contact is a huge time saver. Especially reviewing a contact, or a contractors certification all within the same area. Verses trying to figure out which cloud drive is where the source document is located.

Cons

1. Too expensive for small businesses, 2.Interface Too complicated 3. There are many Customer support variations. To get them to respond pre-sales is very fast, but after you're subscribed, it take a week to a month to respond.

Reasons for Choosing Zoho One

40+ Apps included, verse separate apps with other companies.

Reasons for Switching to Zoho One

Goldmine dollar for dollar was too expensive. But ZOHO was much more competitively priced, and had many more than 40 high quality apps included.
