CiraSync is well suited to syncing company contacts into the Outlook user's mailbox. This could allow for calling with an IP phone, or from a cell phone. It's also well suited to syncing Calendars and Notes into the Outlook user's mailbox, where they do not already have permission on the calendar. However, to avoid confusion it is better not to duplicate calendars when the user can see them from Outlook.

We searched different CRM platforms and noticed that ZOHO was well-priced, but some reviews said it didn't support forms well. IN our case, we already had forms on our wp site, so we did not need to use that aspect. instead, we used an integrator, so I don't have a review on that aspect of the CRM as we're not using that feature. This works for our company, so we are not using the standard automation with zoho forms

Zoho has been a wonderful tool for us for several years and there is so much more we can do with it. New features are released often which give a team like us the option to further fine tune our business process management techniques. I honestly couldn't imagine running our business not on Zoho.
Read full review Usability
The methodology of the 'out of the box' user interface is fairly easy to learn. In some cases however, the interface is not consistent throughout the software. Upgrades to the interface has certainly improved some of this--- but now we are seeing the same kinds of inconsistencies across Zoho apps, particularly those more recently added to their platform. This issue is not major in that everybody on staff seems able to learn how to work the programs--- it's just annoying and less than efficient when inconsistent user interfaces or inconsistent terms are used in the programs and/or the requisite documentation.

The documentation isn't the most robust. Most support sites are very detailed and easily searchable.

We did the training and that was a huge waste of money. The information provided was basic and the instructor was sloppy (he even forgot to turn off his mic when he used the restroom - no one should ever hear what we heard). I offered up a 9 because we were able to find what we needed on your website.

It was harder to learn when there were mostly real estate users in the room. We are sales solely.

Online training is tough, but Zoho and their partners do a good job of explaining things.

When you switch CRMs, you can automatically assume everything isn’t going to match up correctly. We had used Salesforce for 10+ years and had a ton of data and customizations. It was not a clean transfer, but we were able to sort it all out. The only issue that really bothered me was Zoho support. Even simple questions couldn’t be answered over chat, and we would have some team members try for hours to find the right answer

We tried 4Team Sync2 Cloud and also
. While we were not able to justify installing a server, installing a cloud app from the Microsoft store was easy and fit our business needs.

Zoho is the only product we have used. Our company is fairly new and before purchasing Zoho a few years ago, client files were only saved and looked at through our company server. Because of how great Zoho has been, we have never considered looking for another product because there really is no need

I think Zoho CRM is priced at a reasonable amount. Simply put, you get what you pay for and Zoho does not disappoint. My organization is comfortable with what we pay and pleased with continually renewing the software. The billing frequency is just right. There are no complaints on our end

In addition to being a user of Zoho CRM, we are a reseller as well. Often, at times our Partners request for on-boarding the platform configuration for them. During such requirements, we have utilized the Professional services team directly from the Zoho CRM team. Our partner feedback was quite positive, throughout.
Read full review Return on Investment It is difficult to capture specific dollar based ROI in this circumstance. Anecdotally, when it is 3 a.m. and I get an urgent call about an emergent issue at a remote location -- at my fingertips and the fingertips of everyone I work with are the names and phones numbers of our important contacts, site codes that we need to relay to emergency services, and other important information. I don't waste time searching for a piece of paper. I don't worry whether the next person I'm calling has a different site code or phone number. The data is readily available and consistent with all employees. Read full review We have bi- weekly meetings based solely on a dashboard created with our highest profitable cases. This keeps those cases on everybody's radar so nothing slips through the cracks. Salespeople can easily see what customers can be contacted again for future business The Zoho CRM helps us keep track of funds spent in progress, so that we don't overspend.
