Mindblowing , Perfect for Small and Mid sized organization , and can be deployed without hiring high end technical person

Pros

The price , It is way to economical as compared to salesforce or SAP , that requires tons of financial input , and even after that Salesforce need expert manpower to manage and calibrate as per your organization need

Cons

Since I have been working as Salesforce developer as well and I am certified salesforce coach , I can say Zoho is perfect on its part ,
The only backslash is the community behind salesforce is much stronger than ZOHO developers and that where it need to focus on , rest it is perfert

It was a very neutral experience. Be sure to have big bucks to spend when migrating to this software because everything they own are bespoke; you want something you have to buy it. And its neverending for them to keep pushing you to the highest plan.

Pros

It is similar to SalesForce. Easier to use when you can just plug and play certain things and features. Their customer service is good though. Helped me a lot when i go through certain blocks of work that needs to be done.

Cons

You got to keep spending a lot of money for every features that you wanted to customize. The sales will keep ask you to buy the higher package for you to fulfill basic requirements.

Its a great tool, initially we are much favor of using this platform, but over a period of time, we are not able to work with out Zoho tool. We were dependent on multiple tools to manage our data and the Zoho platform has come as a great support.

Pros

The new analytics feature is one of the great option which helps us to visualize the details in a pictorial format like graphs, chart etc. The huge number of customized filed allowed by the platform make us agile in presenting and managing the data. Predefined reports is a plus and it reduce the TAT of creating everything from the scratch.

Cons

For some reason, I am not a great fan of new reports creation flow. The old ways of creating the reports has 2 columns and we can chose what we need and what we don't. Now also we have the same concept but in a parent and child flow. May be we are used to the old workflow and it might take for us to get used to the new reports.

Overall the experience is positive, the system is inexpensive to begin with, but each new user after 5 is billed $600 which adds up very quickly.

Pros

The software is very easy to install and use, very little training is required for using the main functions and user can start populating it immediately

Cons

Contacts and leads are backwards: in Soho a contact is a prospect and a lead is just a name, any other CRM will treat leads as prospects and contacts as names that may become leads. That is very confusing for any one who has used a CRM before and it is not covered during the very basic training.
Training is rudimentary at best, or expensive for any additional training
