|Ease of use
Zoho CRM is intuitive and easy to use, even for technically challenged users.
|Email and other integrations
Users would like to see more or better-functioning syncing options with email (e.g., Outlook and Gmail), as well as other integrations such as accounting tools (e.g., Quickbooks) and social media networks.
The software can be customized based on your needs, with capabilities such as user views, advanced filtering, renaming and modifying fields, custom fields, and custom rules. However, some users don't like that there is a limit to the number of custom fields they can create.
While a great fit for small or simple businesses, Zoho CRM does not work well for companies who need to implement complex, custom or automated workflows.
Users like the following capabilities: territory management, lead assignment, form building and integration, inventory management, meetings and reminders, pipeline management and revenue goal setting.
Users would like to see more automation options, including automated workflows, automated email notifications, and marketing automation options.
|Integration with other Zoho apps
Zoho CRM can be tightly integrated with other Zoho products.
The product is affordable.
“I think Zoho CRM is well suited for the SMB market because it can be implemented very quickly and provide value within the first month. The key questions to ask are more focused internally regarding the actual requirements of sales, marketing, support and management.”—

“Although you can implement Zoho CRM yourself but the effort required in learning the application is demanding. Always choose a professional who has some sort of processes to define CRM scope before implementation.”—

“Useful advice for small groups implementing Zoho is don't integrate/turn on everything at once. Adoption by the users in manageable chunks will be easier in the long run.”—
