Pros: The best part about this software is the price and the fact that it natively integrates with all other Zoho products including Zoho CRM and Zoho Inventory. This means that the customer, inventory, and pricing modules of Zoho Books are awesome and WAY more capable than quickbooks online.

Cons: Just to preface, I am a quickbooks online user. I don't feel that Zoho Books is as easy to use as quickbooks in a few major areas:
1. Reconciliation is much easier in quickbooks and I prefer quickbooks bank feeds as well.
2. Quickbooks has a MUCH better mobile app
3. Quickbooks has more third party apps and better interfaces with many third party apps.
For these reasons, we actually use Zoho Inventory and CRM with quickbooks and not Zoho Books. Zoho continues to improve the product so one day maybe we will be able to switch but I don't feel that it meets all of our needs at this point.

Pros: Ok, first up, my personal shortfall is that I struggle with accounting software. But for someone who struggles I have been very impressed with Zoho Books! It has soooo many features, you can just about do anything you want. One of the best features it has though, is automated Stripe data input. With a bit of setup you can actually have a good chunk of your books automated through workflows too. Very powerful and very cheap for the quality and features.

Cons: Because of the amount of features, it does make it tricky to use sometimes. It's not always obvious how to find particular features and the dashboard can appear quite complex for beginner users for example.

It is really helpful for creating quotations on the go and convert it to invoices.

Pros: Creating invoice is very easy. And looks pretty cool. The theams are helpful to select the standard of the company.

Cons: It should be more userfreindly... Limits many things when creating quotations. Applying GST Is bit difficult. Everytime we have to add tge customer and add the product. Which really annoy

Overall: I can able to create estimates and invoices on tge go with its inbuilt awesome formats.

Comments: All-in-all its a useful and efficient product.

Pros: The best part about Zoho is the fact that it is Cloud based. It can be accessed from any part of the world. Secondly, the user interface is fairly simple and easy to understand. There are many useful features like inventory management provided by them which is a great plus point.

Cons: The mobile application of this software isn't up to the mark and it can be approved. Also, the way the data is shown can be made better. It can seem on the expensive side for some.

Pros: Nice, clean, finance app! If you're looking for a quickbooks type app, this could be the one! Invoices, payments, deposits, anything!!

Cons: Having any monthly payments is a con I guess. But its not totally unexpected, I understand the process for that. No real cons.

Pros: It has a lot of different features & seems to have everything a business needs - built into one interface.

Cons: I could never get my inventory properly migrated from Quickbooks. It's a little wonky. Example: when creating an Item Group, which I assumed to be an item with multiple variations - it has a mandatory field called "Unit". Unit of measurement? There's no additional information and the customer service is foreign and they bounce you back between each other without really helping.

Pros: has many advantages among them is the ease of use and how interesting the application is, first because you can use it whenever you want where you want and it is always up to date.

Another benefit is that it allows you to keep the complete accounting of the company if you import the country or type of tax.

Cons: Sometimes it gets a little slow and I feel that there are transactions that are not shown in the reglon that must do so, that is, do not present it as a pending charge or account receivable.

I understand that they are going to correct that and that it should not affect the accounting of the company as long as it is known that it is being done.

Overall: Fast, easy and simple system to manage your accounting for medium and small business

Pros: 1. Zoho comes with many inbuilt accounting software features like inventory management, Payroll processing, Sales and Purchase booking etc. 2. Can be integrated with your online shoping websites like shopify, woocommerce and many more. 3. Automatc recurring expense booking like depreciation, monthly rent etc.

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?)

Pros: A true CRM tool for sales people with the tools the ability to give accountants information needed. You can provide invoicing and estimates for clients as well as get an overview of sales for the year, the month and other important information. We have been using Zoho for over 5 years and almost swear by it, especially in our line of business with integration with payment options, we can accept multiple payment options from clients without changing our workflow. Whether used on its own or used with the other suite of Zoho apps, Zoho Books is definitely a recommended tool for anyone starting out and looking for an affordable accounting/CRM solution.

Cons: Only administrators can adjust invoices once they have been sent which limits functionality for larger sales teams. Cancelling an estimate or invoice even when in draft mode is not as straightforward as when you create one. Mobile apps for Zoho Books is not as easy to use as the web app, if you are running a business, it is good for viewing sales at a glance but it is not ideal for CRM on the go. There is a slight learning curve to use Zoho Books for accounts especially if you are coming from another accounting suite.

Pros: So, Zoho books is cool, and easy to use. But kind of quirky. The nice thing is there is a lot of stuff. Lots off options and many ways to configure it to your needs.

Cons: The confusing thing is there are lots and lots of Zoho products. And it isn't always clear to you which thing is part of which product and where you are exactly inside the Zoho app universe. It reminds me of the Marvel movies. Too many super heroes to keep track of.

Pros: Easy to understand with a logical approach to entering data. Most accounting packages seem obsessed with every payment and receipt being tied to an invoice, and although Zoho makes invoicing super easy it makes entering a cash sale just as easy. The amount of time this has saved me is immeasurable. I also appreciate the pricing of Zoho and you get a lot of bang for your buck too. Although I'm quite an experienced book keeper I am not overly experienced in online accounting software and I found Zoho easy to understand and had my accounts being entered within minutes. Highly recommend

Overall: faster book keeping and more robust financial controls

Pros: This software has all of the features I needed to run my digital marketing agency. The best part is that my bank transactions are automatically updated.

Cons: The learning curve can be time-consuming and more resources must be available or easy to reach when it comes to being a first time user.

Overall: useful software that made my life so much easier in terms of productivity and time-saving.

Comments: We started by buying Zoho books as a stand-alone software but soon found out the best and most affordable way was to buy the Zoho one package. Only downside everyone in the company must pay a user fee.

Pros: Zoho book is a great accounting software product it was easy to set up and use. So many features and flexible set up it was perfect for our company requirements and did everything required to operate our business.

Great software at an inexpensive price!

Pros: I like the easy user interface and the ability to send documents from email to expense and invoicing. Makes keeping track of things more manageable.

Cons: I wish there was a better dashboard and reporting system. THey give you the basic reports and general dashboard of monthly income and expense but feels lacking in design.

Pros: I was having a lot of trouble dealing with Accounting solutions, Zoho Books helps me keep my records organized.

Cons: It's suitable if you live in the USA, however it's not recommended as a booking solution for a different country.

Zoho book is more about marketing than actual accounting software

Pros: Zoho looks good visually. Some of the features like vendor portal access and integration of payment gateway to few Indian banks is a great thing

Cons: Zoho books seriously lack in its reporting capabilities when compared with its peers. In terms of localization to meet compliance needs, it doesn't provide great support.

Overall Zoho Books is easy to use and works very well for a small to medium business.

Pros: You can automate much of your purchasing and invoicing 'paperwork' process which is wasted time you can spend actually working on your business. It integrates easily with other Zoho products, QuickBooks and Google if you need it to.

Cons: While it is very easy to integrate with other zoho products like Zoho Expense it can sometimes be hard to understand how that integration is meant to work. Some best practice documentation like using Zoho Books and Zoho Expense would be great. For instance it took me a while to figure out that I needed to make sure I had chart of account line items in both. I assumed they would sync but they didn't. I had to go to expense and create the same custom line item I did in books. Not a big deal but it would have been helpful to know that I needed to do that. Customer Support can be very inconsistent. I've had very good experience with the chat support resolving my problems immediately. However, the ticket system and email can some times take days to respond. In particular, you don't have access to your support ticket so you don't know that it has been received or looked at, nor can you update it with any additional information.

Pros: The ability to track time spent on a specific project for a specific customer and translate that to invoicing is great. The customer specific portal for them to access their invoices is another great feature that separates this tool from so many others.

Cons: The fact that there are so many great features can make it challenging for some people to setup and use. Once you get used to it though it's great !

Overall: An affordable way to track the finances and project times for a small, mobile company.

ZOHO Books has been the easiest software that I have used in years.

Pros: What I like most with this software is the ease of use. I have not used ZOHO Books for very long, but it is very user friendly, you are able to edit the information that is entered. I use ZOHO Books daily to review expenses that have been entered as well as submitting a timesheet each day. For other software I have used, expenses are entered weekly and in ZOHO Books, the information is entered daily which gives our company a better idea of what has been expensed each day versus looking at software that shows a week long process.

Cons: I do not believe that there is anything else ZOHO Books can do to make this software any easier. If I was to add anything that I did not like about this software, it would be the Banking Portion. Occasionally, there are transaction entries that are not able to be removed when the information is not able to be matched against our company credit card. There are entries from November 2017 that are unable to be deleted or at least there are no instructions on how to remove the unwanted entries.

Overall: The ease of matching entries entered in ZOHO Books versus the charges on our company credit card.
