Pros: It has a lot of customization and is similar to carrying books in physical, I remember my years of study, has a simple idea and has a lot of customization, the truth is quite good level of customization, and its cost is less than what is in the market.

Cons: I lead a team of employees and the plans do not allow me to cover what I need, to give the user all I need to buy the most expensive of the plans that have many things that I do not need, I want the basics with more employees

Pros: Zoho books solution allows managing all of the customers and vendor contact information and templates can be customized according user preferences.

Cons: If you require anything more than the most basic accounting then Zoho's ridiculously restrictive rules require you to do a workaround for the most basic transactions.

Put a stop on the lame, manual, boring accounting.

Pros: A lot of options to detect patterns in the descriptions of transactions and to create precise transaction rules, possibility to insert custom fields, full integration with PayPal and other gateways.

Cons: For my experience, as an employee in a Spanish firm, the best improvement would be the adaptation of the financial statements to the Spanish standards.

Not Quickbooks, but if you use Zoho, it works.

Comments: Zoho support is generally really helpful and has mostly been able to help me figure things out, although there are still some limitations.

Pros: It integrates with many Zoho products to make seamless connections through business processes, and generally does the job of bookkeeping.

Cons: There are some limitations in customization you don't see in other options like Quickbooks, and a lot of times the workarounds are complicated and unintuitive. There are limited reporting options which force you to purchase another Zoho product to perform meaningful reports.

Comments: Today in the fast moving world we try to find and use something that more plug & play, Zoho is one of them. Zoho Books is a cloud based application very much suitable for growing organizations. This has quite some great features and has a good approach on User Interface and User Experience. The user experience is pretty competent with software¿s of its category and above. They give a good user experience as the language used is pretty simple and standard. Note: No software is complete as the necessities are different, for one what looks as an advantage need not be for other. Suggest to do a good requirement analysis before selecting any tool

Pros: ¿ Easy Navigation ¿ Cloud based¿ so access from any corner of the world !! ¿ Scalable ¿ Secured ¿ Free to try and use with limited features ¿ Only pay for the features you need ¿ Great user interface on pc ¿ Includes features inventory management, Payroll processing, Sales and Purchase booking etc. ¿ E-Commerce integration ¿ Reasonable price

Cons: ¿ Recurring & Features fee could look expensive ¿ Manual sync with banks ¿ No so good mobile app ¿ Presentation of data needs improvement

Pros: It is very customizable and can be synced with Zoho CRM. It is very convient to see payments made by customers and it is very easy to create invoices according to that in Zoho books itself. They also have mobile application for working while laptop is not accessible. It is cloud based so data is safe and secure.

Cons: Initially the charges are low compared to other products present but from next year they increase their fees and also it has less features in comparison to some other products like quickbook.

Overall: Overall it is good for small budget and can be used in firms with less capital to invest. It has made my work alot easier and now I complete my work on time.

Pros: Very feature rich, regular updates based on tax system and makes your life easy. I started using Zoho invoice and upgraded to Zoho books, the tool completely takes care of your all accounting needs.

Cons: - Sometimes a bit confusing to use
- User management could be better

Not many cons, Zoho tools do come with a bit traditional UI but that is fine as they get the work done.

Pros: This product Hooks up easily to Zoho CRM. The product works almost fluidly with the CRM. it makes it easy to see each client payment and how much we have received each month. The information the books hold really helps for some financial reports. The Reports do make my life easier kindof. Books make it easy to bill clients and it keeps all the information in one place.

Cons: The Reports as mention in my pros are missing some really good information that is already there in the system. They want me to pay for Zoho reports, but to my understanding Zoho reports, I would still need to go in and set it up. In our business every month we have to pay out our salespeople. fist I'm not able to split commissions easily or add multiple salespeople to an invoice. second, if I look up sales by salesperson by month it gives me all invoices created in the month, not all invoice paid. We sell expensive web projects and could take months to close. so it is unhelpful for me to see monthly sales report because it is not correct. they also have a "payments received" a report that comes in Zoho books. This report gives me monthly sales but does not add the sales person to the report. So I build a report that takes 30 min to an hour top. I have asked them to fix this and they told me to get Zoho reports

Comments: The mobile app is spectacular. I rarely have to use the desktop browser version of Zoho Books. I love the freedom of being mobile without sacrificing functionality.

Pros: I am pretty sure I've tried all the top accounting platforms. My search was over when I found Zoho. Their software is incredibly simple to navigate. I really enjoy how quickly and easily I can create new items, estimates and invoices. On multiple occasions I have quite literally created an estimate while meeting with a client and received payment later that day.

Pros: I love that Zoho Books is the expanded version of Zoho Invoice. Its easy to use, effortless, and I feel it's appropriate for smaller businesses who don't need the bells and whistles, yet.

Cons: The cost is pretty outstanding if you go with a Zoho One subscription. They want per seat but every person on your team needs a seat, even if they don't use the application afforded in their seat.

Software is intuitive and easy to use.

Pros: Perfect for small to medium business es - great software and I have been in development and sales of accounting software for over 20 years. Can't really fault that the software for the price .

Cons: Lacks some smart short cuts of more higher end software but that will probably come as it matures. Reports need some improvement but ok - some tighter integration would help

Pros: -Recurring Billing is included with the software
- Unlimited users for one price
- Partial integration with Zoho CRM
- Client Portal
- Customizable e-mail templates to customers
- Customize invoices, estimates, and sales orders design
- Square integration

Cons: - Lack Budgeting feature and they are ignoring the many requests for it for the past three years.
- Forced to use Alvera Tax.
- No true integration with ZohoCRM, If you want to create a sales order in ZohoCRM, you're going to have to create one in ZohoBooks
- Lack of integration to other services for Business Intelligence software
- Lack of listening to customers feature requests. They seem to build what they feel we need
- Unable to Journal entry from the bank account, which doesn't allow you to easily process payroll unless you use their payroll service which lacks a lot of features.
- Good reports, their reports are horrible and you can not customize the to work the way that you want or need.

Overall: Recurring billing is included, and that is the only thing keeping our company with Zoho Books. We have more frustrations than benefits right now.

Pros: The software is easy to use, stacks up well against Xero (the leading accounting package in use in Australia) for functionality, especially at a small-medium business level and at only 20% of the cost.

Cons: I'd like it to interface much more easily with external reporting packages, but that's endemic across the whole Zoho range (as they have their own reporting module)

Overall: Great functionality at a fantastic price.

Comments: Great software. I was just starting my business is a general contractor. I looked at a lot of building software thats specially for builders and remodelers and it was all very involved and required a lot time to keep everything up to date. Zoho Books isn't like that, Zoho id easy-to-use and it's not time consuming and you can kind of scale it to the size of your business

Pros: Free to try and use with limited features Only pay for the features you need Great user interface on pc

Cons: Mobile app lacks many functions All the different pieces of zoho software don't talk to each other which means entering the same data more than once

Cons: none thus far

Overall: Zoho Books is a simple online accounting software that covers all the basics: create and send invoices, track expenses, sync bank accounts, create reports and accounting on the go. I love being able to use my iphone. It also offers a full set of accounting tools that grow with your business. We have tried other accounting services, but they are complicated compared to this. Zoho Books costs $24 per month and its for an unlimited number of users. Fair priced to me. Overall, this the software our small business stuck with.

Overall: Zoho Books has been a great tool. We have been using the software in our office for over a year now, and mostly love it. There are a few things here and there that do not work well for us, for example, the sales tax section. Zoho, at the time, is unable to fix our issues with this. The support team does respond in a timely manner, however, and the overall experience has been pleasant. I would recommend this program to anyone in small business.

The simplicity and the ability to have access anywhere through any device was fantastic, needless to say it is years later and we are still going strong.

Pros: Easy to learn and easy to use.

Overall: I'm a small business owner and salesman. For years, my bookkeeping 'system' was incoming invoices, receipts and copies of outgoing invoices piled into a shoe box! Obviously, I didn't like accounting or bookkeeping. Business was good so I didn't need to track 'every nickel and dime.'

A few years ago, when the economy started 'downhill', I realized that I needed to do a better job of tracking my expenses and sales. I tried several different bookkeeping systems (some very expensive!) but they were too complex for me.

I had been using ZOHO CRM for several years before I noticed their ZOHO BOOKS system. I tried it and fell in love with it! It is easy to learn and easy to use. Whether you love accounting, or hate accounting, you will love ZOHO BOOKS. Give it a try....

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try...you will love it!

Cons: Inventory support for Books is a bit primitive.

Overall: I have been looking for a cloud based application for our business with the features to support our business - Invoicing, inventory, book keeping, purchase order process and standard reports.I found Zoho Books very attractive with all the features I was looking for. Very good feature set, ease of use, and excellent support. Inventory setup is a little bit tricky (with custom columns) if you have complex set of products, but, for basic straight forward products, it is perfect! Thank you, Zoho! Keep up the great work!

Recommendations to other buyers: If a feature comparison of Zoho Books and Tally is provided, it will be very easy to convince many of my friends to adopt Zoho Books.

Comments: I've been using Zoho Books for 2 years now and have been happy with it so far. While I wish there were some more advanced reporting features than what is currently there, I've found a work around to get the information that I need. I like that it automatically records the payments when I receive them as that saves me a lot of time. I like that I can track expenses and attach them to a specific customer to see a great break down of costs. This has helped me to systematize our internal processes so that we can provide a consistent product. I would recommend using Zoho Books.

Pros: - Its Up to date with the new developments
- Its applicable to us in other countries
- Its simple to use
- It takes safe as you need passwords to access
- Its has an interesting User Interface
- The Staff is friendly and quite helpful

-

Cons: - Some times it take long to work on its magic

Overall: I run and advertising agency in Nairobi Kenya. I have 3 staff in the office.
Before I discovered Zoho, I used paper quotations and invoices. I only had my quotes in my head. I was the only one who knew what to charge and how much to charge.
A friend introduced me to the Zoho and I finally enjoy the freedom it offers.
I rarely do the quotations myself, converting quotes to invoices and invoices to receipts is just amazing.
I am able to create quotations from my phone as I move around when away from the office.
Our accountant also is able to view our transactions and advice us. We have even reduced the charges he pays us as most of the information is done by zoho.

Overall: I have been using it for almost 6 month. I am immensely satisfied with this online software. It's very easy to use and all my bank accounts are linked to it. Picks all my transactions through all my accounts and then i just have to categorise them. Categorisation can also be automated if it repeats quite often. Overall great software ........great peace of mind

Pros: Ease of use and nicely featured for everyday business.

Cons: Some things are visible, but no way to utilize them (owners equity, profit distribution, tax payable).

Overall: Zoho pretty much covers all the things we need.

Very easy to use, very logical interface and nice reporting.
All items are cross-linked. You can create a sales order and convert it into a purchase order. Quotations are converted to SO, SO to invoices.

The financial part is great - multiple currencies, multiple bank accounts, descriptive reporting, and current status overview.

Some advanced features are not so well developed as in offline systems (like template customization capability is limited by design; owners equity and profit are visible through reporting, but no tools to work with them, etc.), but we are talking about a nice tool for SMB here!

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Customer Support and the lack of detail in payments received. My bookkeeper struggles to reconcile my PayPal payments because the fees aren't identified.

Overall: When I first started my photography business I needed an invoicing program and I stumbled upon Zoho in my search. It had everything I wanted and was free. Here I am 6 years later still using it. Back then I only needed Zoho Invoice, but through the years I needed more organization than the invoicing program offers so I upgraded to Zoho Books. At that time I didn't realize that it wasn't truly it an upgrade, but rather a switch from one to the other. I was being double charged. It was a bit challenging contacting Zoho support (in 2013), but once I did they were happy to fix the problem and refund my duplicate payments for the two months prior. Setting up Zoho Books was a bit challenging and my only true complaint about Zoho is that the support system is very much lacking. I struggled to reach Zoho Support. When I finally did they were helpful, but it is a challenge to actually ever reach anyone. Other than that Zoho is AMAZING. I have referred MANY friends to this program through the years.

Pros: - Phone based app & laptop s-ware are EZ to use.

Cons: Don't quite understand how to customize an invoice, save it & use it for monthly billing.

Sometimes, I have to play around with the invoice to get all of the detail needed to print. For example, it is not readily apparent how to display the dates for which each expense is incurred on the invoice.

Not having a copy of our company's data stored on our system makes me nervous so we keep paper back ups. Surely there is a better contingency plan of which we could take advantage.

Overall: It's true, but when your calling is a clear one, you are obligated to follow! Our small care giving business has employees working exclusively at customer sites. The caregivers (most also over 50 yrs. old) input their time, mileage & expenses from their smart phones. Invoicing is generally done at my laptop but can be done from my phone. The invoicing can be personalized with valuable information for our clients such as upcoming holidays, rate changes, & thank yous for allowing us to earn their business.

The reporting is simple to use as is the customer support. The customer support is very knowledgeable & easy to understand. We have never experienced a wait time either.

We tried another accounting package our first year of business & found it too cumbersome & not user friendly for those of us with only basic accounting skills. Zoho was recommended by our professional accountant & business advisor. Zoho has greatly simplified our invoicing, reporting, & customer account related tasks, so that we can focus on senior care giving where our gifts are strong. Thanks, Zoho!

Pros: Ease of use, visual representation of dashboard, reports.

Cons: not customizable to the extent required for tax laws in Greece but understandable

Overall: We are BACKBONE (www.backbonetechnology.com) and we use Zoho Books and Zoho CRM to run our Greece office. Apart from a few tax regulations that cannot be set up in the software, everything else works great for us. We absolutely LOVE the dashboard and visual representation of where our organization is on a monthly basis. We also love the reports section of the software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Would love to see some HR features in the software but I recently was made aware of Zoho People which I am giving a try

Pros: Simple, clean and clear UI. Nothing has come close. Onboarding our accountants was simple.

Cons: Very minimal, as we are growing we are finding that we need a few features our accountants require, but this is something they can do manually on ther end for now.

Overall: As our agency grew we realised that Freshbooks was not cutting it. We needed a solution that gave us a better overview of our accounting and billing. The updates and new features from Zoho Books seem like the roll out on a daily basis, always adding value and ease of use.

Customer support is on point, clear communication and always on hand to make sure you are using their product correctly. We have now integrated with Zoho CRM and Projects for a full 360 of our agency processes and needs.

Recommendations to other buyers: We are happy overall at the moment.

Pros: Excellent/fast support. Interface can be fun to use and is quick to respond.
Development seems to be ongoing.

Cons: Lacks basic functions like deposit slip printing (and automatically transferring those funds to bank from Undeposited Funds), ability to pre-send recurring invoices, inability to set simple defaults such as default account to accept payment to (always need to manually select Undeposited Funds when accepting checks) and no running total in account ledgers such as Undeposited Funds (how are you supposed to find and fix errors, mistakes?)

Overall: Switched from Quickbooks to ZohoBooks. Overall, ZohoBooks is very good. The site is always up and running very quickly. Tech support is excellent in both speed and quality. The software is actually fun to use. However, it does lack some of the basic functions that seem should have been in there from the beginning such as ability to print deposit slips, and there's no running total on the side of accounts so when you're looking for a mistake, it makes it very difficult to find. One feature that our business desperately is ability to pre-send invoices to people on a recurring basis before their due date. Quickbooks has had this ability back since the days of DOS (20 years ago). We're limping around right now trying to work without these basic needs in hopes that they will soon come. On the otherhand, Zoho does keep adding new features on a consistent basis. Sometimes just simple design changes but at least you get the feeling they are still working on it.

-Highly recommended, however proceed with caution because there are some very basic things missing and they don't seem to be in a hurry to resolve this. It's almost the year 2017 and I'm adding up deposits by calculator and filling in deposit slips by pen. Shouldn't be ;-\

Recommendations to other buyers: Cover the basics first

Pros: the accessibility, the reporting, and the client portals

Cons: the non choice when an update is made to the interface and having to relearn where things are

Overall: Even having the trouble of finding an accountant that was comfortable not using MYOB after convincing them to use the reports they themselves were happy with the complex reports that can be generated, that with the auto reminding of invoices, customer portals, access anywhere. its an excellent package

Pros: Clear user interface, well thought ergonomy.

Cons: A bit messy and takes time to understand how everythingw works but that's inherent to any accounting system.

Overall: As the manager of a small web agency (10 developers), I have been trying several accounting softwares, some had ugly/messy user interfaces, not enough features or were too expensive. Zoho Books is the good balance for our structure, it's easy to use and has enough feautures to cover all of our needs. We are based in Thailand and too bad our Thai Bank account is not supported but it's not really a big deal.

Recommendations to other buyers: Zoho also have other tools for CRM, Project management, HR, it's nice to have those working together.

Pros: reports, auto tax deduction

Cons: not all (nl) banks are available feeds.

Overall: Good soft for small business. Quite easy to use. Here we have almost everything we need in our day to day work. I do like bank feeds and reconciliation history for checking if nothing is missed (with me sometimes it happens). Not all European banks yet included in the list, but think they will be in future. Very simple tax reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: under invoices in the list amount with/without VAT option, total sum of accepted/ sent/etc. estimates are lacking (in order not to go to report each time).

Comments: I'm overall very happy with my experience on Zoho books. Just a few things don't make it a 5 star experience. I would love to have the ability to completely customise my estimates and invoices. Being a design studio, it's very important that my estimates and invoices follow the rest of our brand design. Also would be good to have a desktop app for time keeping. I currently use the Chrome app and it should have the possibility of adding projects and tasks from the app itself.

Recommendations to other buyers: More regular updates

Pros: Customer support is excellent. Multiple currency features is good.

Cons: Some of the multiple currencies stuff - especially to do with bank accounts and payment methods - is a little clunky.

Overall: After trying about six other accounting packages for my email marketing agency, I went with Zoho Books. It was the only one that handled multiple currencies seamlessly without requiring the very top/most expensive account level. While there are some things I wish it would do differently, it's by far the best of all the different accounting solutions I have tried. In addition, their support is fast and very, very good... every time I have a question or a problem, they either resolve it or inform me of a workaround (and log a feature request on my behalf) in a minimum of time and without any hassle. The other thing I like about Zoho Books is that their feature set is always expanding - you really do need to read the notes when they announce an update, as often I've found they've added something that makes my life easier that I wouldn't have found on my own.

Pros: I like that it's very user-friendly. Almost all the necessary things you need for your bookkeeping is there.

Cons: The mobile app is alright but can be improved.

Overall: Zoho Books is one of the vital programs we use in our business. It is very easy to use and really has lots of awesome features that help you with your accounting needs. Of course, just like any other software, it doesn't have everything you will need or you can think of, but the most important ones are there. The mobile app could be improved, some reports are not accessible such as the tax summary and recording payments does not allow you to record bank charges in the app. But overall, it's an awesome product and would definitely recommend you use it.
