Zoho Creator Review

My experience with Zoho Creator has been remarkable because it has helped us a lot in building well-customized mobile applications. The applications are convenient for managing businesses. Therefore, businesspersons should start using it.

Pros

When it comes to building small applications, Zoho Creator is the best choice. It helps us in building custom applications that we use in the organization to smoothen the daily operations. Customer care team is not only responsive but also supportive. I like the tool.

Cons

In my opinion, Zoho Creator is not affordable for small businesses or those who need to use it for personal purposes. The vendor should check on that to enure everyone is comfortable when using it.

We created a custom CRM using ZOHO CREATOR

If i could give this app 11 stars, i would. It really is one of the best CRM custom creators I have come accross.

Pros

We enlisted the help of a zoho developer to help us create a custom CRM for our commercial energy brokerage. The cloud-based app along with an android app along with speed of access makes this application the go-to app for our CRM needs.

Cons

It is written using a coding language called Deluge. It is not simple and as such i would advise enlisting the help of a zoho coding expert. Zoho have a list of developers who can help.

A basic database solution with some advanced functionality

For the most part I was very pleased with the tool and I am looking forward to working with it further on future projects.

Pros

Easy to create functional databases in minutes instead of months.

Cons

When attempting to get the database forms to perform more advanced functions knowledge of the proprietary database "language" is required. It is not hugely difficult to learn but is a bit harder than say Access for some of the same functionality.

With Zoho Creator Seriously Anything Is Possible

Awesome, I love Zoho Creator. We use it for many different parts of our business to complement what we accomplish with Zoho CRM. It can house a ton of data and the UI is nice and easy to navigate. Forms from Creator can easily be integrated with other Zoho apps to make Zoho Creator even more powerful!

Pros

If you can think up an app, or a business workflow, or a business data scenario, or seriously anything, Zoho Creator can handle it. They have pre-built apps which can be modified to suit your business app needs, or you can build apps from scratch. Basic apps with basic workflow or notifications can be set up in minutes. Creator integrates nicely with other Zoho apps (for Zoho One users) like Zoho CRM and Zoho Books.

Cons

The scripting language Zoho Creator uses is called DELUGE. It is the powerful engine behind what seriously makes anything possible with Zoho Creator. For most users that have no coding background it this can provide limits as DELGUGE can be difficult to learn.

That is why every business requires one to improve its operations. Zoho Creator is the best option that I can recommend due to its efficiency.

The only thing that we dislike about Zoho Creator is the non-responsive customer care department. They need to handle customers' queries in a serious manner.

Review of Zoho Creator

My experience with Zoho Creator is always good because of many aspects, including the supportive technical team. The applications we build using this tool has improved our activities in the workplace.

Pros

Creating small applications is not an easy task that does not require high-quality programming skills. This is made possible by Zoho Creator. I like this product of Zoho because of its simplicity and affordability. It has helped me make great softwares that I use personally and in the organization that I work in.

Cons

This tool has been a true lifesaver for use. Therefore, I do not dislike it at all. I like every aspect about the software.

Zoho Creator is a Winner in Running Applications

Pros

This software is a winner with what it has to offer. I like the fact that it can check and monitor if there are bugs in the system. We work from our desktops, tablets and phones, and this software is able to run applications without giving me any headaches. I love the graphics and I know that are gadgets are always protected and secured.

Cons

The customer support department is quite inept when it comes to issues and concerns. They need to train their staff to be quick to resolve issues so we don’t have to wait that long.

A Good Tool for Application Development

We have created several apps using this amazing tool since we began using it. Our overall experience with Zoho Creator has been amazing. Wwe enjoy using great Apps that we built using this tool.

Pros

App development is now an easy-to-understand process because of the help of this amazing tool. I like using it because its features are not sophisticated. It is also and affordable app developemnt tool that everyone should give a try.

Cons

The only thing I like least about this tool is the slow customer support. The other things about this tool are perfect for me. It is beneficial to us.

Zoho Creator

Gone are the days when the creation of softwares or applications was highly expensive. Zoho Creator has made application building an easy and affordable process. Our overall experince with this increadible tool has been remarkable.

Pros

Zoho Creator is a great software that helps us in building simple applications that improve our business operations. I like using the software due to its high-quality features that make it easy to use. All the applications we build using this tool are well-organized and customized.

Cons

The only that I dislike about Zoho Creator is how the customer care team takes too long to respond to our questions. Apart from that, the tool is worth every coin that we spend on it.

Perfect for In-House Custom Database Needs!

Pros

User Interface design is pretty straightforward - drag and drop.

The Deluge scripting language is really easy to pick up and a lot of the problems you'll need to solve have already been addressed with zoho-specific solutions.

Cons

You are absolutely locked into the interface design aspects for reports and input forms. Nothing is going to look pretty. Any kind of custom formatting is going to require some hacking and testing before you come up with a workable solution.

Powerful App Builder for Non-Programmers

We have used Zoho Creator for both internal and public facing apps. It is probably the quickest way to get data collection forms on a web page. Power users can make use of Zoho Creator for simple data collection and reporting apps that need more than a spreadsheet but don't warrant the involvement of the development team. Great value, especially when included as part of the Zoho One bundle. Good solution for the right business applications.

Pros

While there is a bit of a learning curve, Zoho Creator can be used by non-programmers to create quite sophisticated applications using a drag and drop form builder and report builder. There is also a scripting language for more sophisticated requirements, but many simple apps can be created with no coding at all. Customer support is generally good and responsive. If you are already familiar with other Zoho products (CRM, Survey, Forms etc.) you should be able to get productive right away.

Cons

Can be tricky to brand exactly as you might like; lots of settings and interface isn't as intuitive as it could be. You'll likely want some oversight from the development team for anything that will be public facing, but that would be the case for any app in the wild.

Perfect for internal apps, to complete workflows - not much code required to get started

It solves some very specific tasks we have internally such as case reporting, profit analysis, purchase order workflow.

Pros

We can develop applications to satisfy some specific requirements internally. Most of the applications can be developed using drag and drop, and some simple code.

Cons

It is still limited to what can be done on the page, numerous improvements are needed such as picking objects or variables from lists - just not there, so you end up having to note them down.

Automate your business processes!!!

Overall, very happy with the solution. We use it to manage our QC and RMA processes.

Pros

Zoho creator is intuitive and a great tool to automate business processes. We are a manufacturer and use this for QC and RMA management. I love that whatever you create can work on phones, tablets, and the web. They also have great support and they have conferences you can attend to get one on one with the developers and experts and get your questions answered. You can't beat the price either!

Cons

Creator was upgraded to creator 5 relatively recently and all of the help documentation has not yet been updated accordingly.
