Mixed Feelings

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

Overall, it is a complicated tool, it is not that easy to use, the only good part is that it is customizable, but I would not recommend it.

Pros

Zoho is very customizable and has an API with which you can integrate what you need. You can create forms and use them according to your needs.

Cons

Its not intuitive, it is hard to use, the support team is in India and it is hard to match time with them to get something fixed, they ask to get remote access to fix the issue every time, which means that for that time you cannot do anything on your computer while they are on there, and sometimes they just take too long.

I like Zoho People I just wish the price was not as high to make it more affordable for a small business with 15 employees.

Pros

The ease of use, their help center has lots of great information, webinars, templates, I like the templates they offer.

Cons

The price I feel is to high for a small business to make it an affordable purchase. I also wish the reports were run easier.

Zoho People Appraisal is not good at all.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Going by Zoho's appraisal tool, there is no way I will recommend any product. The lack of decent support even for paid plan, and lack of basic features, only shows what low quality/bar they have set out for themselves. I am now curious to know how bad other Zoho products are and might try them out only to know / learn how not to do things. Perhaps others can use Zoho appraisal system as case study on how not to build / launch products.

Pros

- Named brand with some good story behind it.
- Seemingly out of the box turnkey solution for HRMS (we used it for employee appraisals).
- Quite easy to import new employees into system (via CSV).

Cons

Weak/bad Customer support:
- No 24x7 support. Weekend they are off. Weekday support only for 9 hours.
- No customer support call centre. You have to wait for callback and it takes 2-3 days for them to give callback and another few days to resolve issues.

Bad appraisal product:
- Features or lack of it is not clearly listed out. You will find it once you have started using the product (and too late to make changes).
- Really terrible UX. One could not figure out how to do something... there is no proper onboarding/videos either.
- Basic features were absent, and there are way too many bugs to be put it out as paid product. Google form works lot better.
- Employees were not able to access their account for weird bugs, and could not see right screens (again bad product).

Pros

We've implemented Zoho People as our first HR system. This decision was based on flexibility, ease of use, functionality and of course security of our data. While it does not provide attractive interface as other products we demo, Zoho People has an all in one solution from new hire to termination with room for customization. All the main function of HR (performance, training, employee record, recruitment, benefits, reporting...) are working flawlessly for our company.

Cons

As with all software, there are many areas to improve. Zoho People team has been working hard to do just this as demand arise.

Really versatile and cost-effective HR system that allows a lot of customization

Value for Money

A very cost effective and versatile system overall.

Pros

Allows a great deal of customization, which is really important to me. Once you learn how to work with templates, it's very easy to go in and create online forms, and customize sections specific to your company. They are quite responsive to questions and generally get back to me very quickly. Calculations can be done in most any form, which again, once you learn, is a great tool. The cost is well below other systems that I've looked at, and I think I've researched them all! It's very cost-effective overall, which is great for small companies like mine.

Cons

There are some technical issues that I'm still waiting to have resolved, which would make this product even better. For instance, a scrolling page problem in their newest interface that forces me to expand the browser in order to do a vertical scroll. There is also an issue with dates reverting to a format I do not use (i.e., day then month, when the US version is month then day).

Value for Money

Pros

Nice functionalities, such as intuitive leave calculation by employee start date, forms customization, and field-level permission. Having a mobile app is also very convenient.

Cons

Having a chat functionality for customer support is a great idea and being able to leave offline messages for support to get back to is also good. However, in general, customer support is very bad:
1. Very slow response time. I was so disappointed after buying the product because after receiving an email to say that a training will be scheduled, no one initiated contact with me after that for almost a week. Even following up myself and even calling the hotline, it took many many days before I was contacted about it.
2. Poor English comprehension of the customer support, especially through verbal communication. A short conversation would have been possible if the original question was properly understood, to which the answer is "No such functionality."
3. Lack of familiarization with the product. Simple questions were not answered on the spot (thru chat) and a lot of verification needs to be done on whether or not a functionality exists. Even after much verification, I was told that it can be done and a call was scheduled to walk me through, but after another lengthy discussion turns out there's no such functionality.

Zoho people mobile app can be enhanced similar to zoho people web page version. In mobile app still I struggle to find the user details including user's document, marksheets and certificates. Even won't be able to upload documents(Ids like driving licence, office id..etc )in it.

Pros

It is very difficult for me to track what employees do and why we pay them money - in the company, although about 10 people work, each of them performs completely different tasks. This program allows you to put personally each clear tasks and monitor their implementation. But that's not all: with her help, holidays are easy to make out and wages are charged.

Cons

There are a lot of minor flaws in the product, but it's the support service, which reacts quickly to all problems. The main disadvantage: you have to call a specialist every time you need to set something up.

Cons

I don't like the thing that i can't just click on a employee and see their profile i must find it in the organization tree and access it from there, and i don't like the way the profile data its presented like a pop up from the right side and its very long and not categorised very good.

One of the most best feature of ZOHO HR is, its very easy to implement. In a single day, you can integrate your company's attendance and Leave policies. Employees find it very useful to track their leaves and count their working hours. The best part is that company can track the time and location of employees who are working onsite. Amazing tool.

Cons

Zoho need to work little bit on their mobile app. When you punch your Check In time, app sometime shows wrong In time. Otherwise, rest app features are cool.

We needed a time in/out system and this software provides that.

Pros

It allows you to customize the system to fit your company's needs. We needed a system that was easily integrated into our current system, as we use Zoho Mail. Zoho Peoples provided us an efficient adjustment.

Cons

With so many bells and whistles, it takes some time to figure out a simple task. The help videos are extremely long, making simple questions difficult to receive an answer.

How integrated, useful and connected the app is between its users and organization. It makes it very easy to publish items from one area to another and reference data from one portion to another part.

I hate how you have to manually enter Jobs for projects. Even trying to automate the excel spreadsheet is broken half the time. Also, you cannot create standard jobs available to the entire organization, you must create separate jobs for separate projects and that data is not linked. For example, this means I cannot pull the sum of hours spent on one task from ALL my projects.
