    Excellent Artificial Intelligence platform in the cloud, which provides an optimal service. It helps us mainly in the design of workflows without code, saving time and money. Since we have this tool, the work capacity has increased, achieving constant work flows, incapable of being achieved by any human being in such a short time and in a perfect way. Everything that we would pay many employees, we achieve with this tremendous investment with this powerful product.

    I have a software web app development background, so we considered hand-rolling an in-house MYSQL application for our needs. But, programming a home-grown web app also requires a dedicated programmer and some deep thought regarding specifications. Within just a couple of hours, I developed a tool in Zoho Creator (easily expandable) that accomplished the same tasks. It saved us a considerable amount of frontend and backend programming. Nothing can truly fit EVERY need, so some extremely specialized applications might find Zoho Creator limiting, but for the bulk of normal, everyday database management, Zoho Creator is an excellent tool. The fringe cases where Zoho Creator's off-the-shelf abilities may not be enough could be addressed in a number of creative ways, be it linking to outside data or using their custom programming language to hand-code specific needs. It is very, very powerful. The only place where it may not be appropriate is if someone needed extensive front-end customization (although data can still be pulled using its API for display externally). It may be too powerful for extremely basic needs. Overall, however, it is hard to find fault with this system.

    • The ease of creating data collecting forms. Anything from creating a form to import all your old excel documents to creating a mobile on-site application where you can input data directly into the app. For a company like us this can help to eliminate the pen and paper approach to recording data.
    • Reporting features are excellent. Slicing and dicing the data from your forms to create any report is possible. Think of it has filters on steroids. The ability to combine data from different forms is a huge plus.
    • Dashboards! Zoho Creator has so much depth to it that it's easy for one to get lost if they are not as familiar with Creator, for example an exuctive or decision making manager. This is where dashboards come in. Admins can build intuitive and smart dashboards that combine all the relevant KPI's that a manager needs to see.

    Cons

    IBM

    • This software can be a bit expensive, especially for entrepreneurs, but it is worth it because its options are more useful than other software on the market.
    • We use it in all departments of the organization, and it has worked very well for us. Earnings are constant for everyone in general.

    • In the C5 Version, User Management was easy, but in C6 due to the by default integration of analytics, we at our end are not able to deactivate the users, which can be improved as to add new user, we need to have the control at our end.
    • While integrating with third party software's, creator should develop mechanism to use multiple applications using common points
    • Though the system is very easy to use and develop, UI customization option should be provided with similar low code facility

      Today Zoho Creator is included in our current plan from Zoho One, but if it was needed to pay apart it should be done because the software we created became very important for our team. The use of Zoho Creator contributes to endorse the Zoho One subscription year after year.

      I think Zoho Creator Platform is a very different development platform compared to others. Most developers might not want to learn or develop here due to: 1. Non scalability 2. High costs 3. Limited UX design Reason others might want to develop on Creator: 1. Faster time to market 2. Easy Drag-Drop interface 3. Works for a variety of use cases

      I recommend Zoho Creator very often. A lot of companies go big earlier than they need to and spend way too much on SalesForce & Marketo. I worked for a small company with some limited budget that pivoted to sell it's product to the Enterprise. Zoho Creator was incredibly easy to set up, intuitive to use, and contains all the most essential features that most users need and seek in SalesForce. We integrated with MailChimp & Unbounce and were able to be incredibly useful in acquiring leads, nurturing them, and tracking pipeline in Zoho Creator. Our small sales team found it very easy to use and loved it.

      Even if it is a easy to use platform, it got some issues on the implementation that could easily handle by IT teams. In our scenario this team don't exist anymore, and the business/marketing team had their expectations that it was quickier to be implemented. So, consider a professional help on this implementation could be cost more (of cource) but it would be helpful to manage the issues and expectations.

      1. Ease of use - It is very easy to use and integrate. A junior developer can even follow it without any major learning curve. 2. As per the data load, the services can be scaled up or down. 3. It provides a nice AI platform to automate the data from legacy data systems. 4. Above all, the deployment to the IBM Cloud PAK for Business Automation was very smooth and seamless.

      I could use Excel to do what I need but prefer to use Zoho Creator for the main reasons of being very secure, fast, easily accessible, cloud based, etc. The CSV import option is a huge time saver, I can import CSV or TXT files directly into Zoho Creator in seconds

      Zoho is incredibly versatile. Much thought was put in to the way the platform functions. I've yet to face a situation where Zoho would not be able to do what I needed. That being said, because of its power, it can also be a bit intimidating technically. Simple needs are simple. More complex needs are ... more complex! Overall, it's a powerful, robust platform

      Return on Investment

      IBM

      • A platform with multiple functions, automations and system monitoring.
      • The components of this software help to obtain results from the first month of its implementation.
      • Each module has a price and can be purchased according to the direct need of the company; this helps to adapt to our budget.

      • Again, Creator has allowed the College to make significant savings in workflow practices, clerical administration, photocopying, postage - everything we now do is online. Our efficiencies have been recognised by our users/applicants who view us as a point of differentiation as to how we do business.
      • Negative impact - None!
