The product is user-friendly in automating the tasks, managing the master data through central purchasing, and creating custom reports. It lacks certain basic functionalities like a record of wastages, sending automated emails confirming if the automatic tasks (scheduled tasks) have been completed or not, and the ability to automate the nutrition information, etc.

Zoho Invoice is well suited for any business, regardless of size, that needs to have a way to create invoices with hourly or flat rates. It's easy to create and archive projects. It also integrates into their other tools, including Zoho Projects. Zoho is great for businesses who want to accept online payments.You can use PayPal, Stripe, and a few others. Clients can also pay via ACH. It lets you know when a payment is processing AND when it clears. I believe that it would not be well suited in instances where a company creates lots of credit notes (because from the invoice screen the credit will appear to grow, but when you check active credit notes, it is the right amount) or estimates (I can't figure out how to use this feature)

Cons
HotSchedules and Fourth
  • It would help massively to see via Enterprise and menu items what ones are no longer active, to keep the data tidy.
  • When you take purchase reports from Enterprise and select to organise them by category, show the name of the category on the actual report download.
  • Quick and easy upload/download of supplier products for correcting prices, descriptions, prices in bulk.

  • Zoho invoice allowed our company to seem very large even when we were just getting our start in a basement of a house...for free might I add as we were using the free version at those times.
