Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Books

Zoho Books is used for accounting, by us and some of our customers. And I use it myself for my personal administration, due to the low price and the functionalities they have to offer. Next to the fact that it's a great entry level piece of software. We can easy book with it from all our devices, and it's always accessible. Sadly this software is not known by many companies here in the NL, and if they did it would be a great asset.
  • Price, for a tool with all these options they offer a great price.
  • Access for clients, so you can manage and view multiple clients.
  • Good mobile app, easy to use many options.
  • Great for entry level, it's so easy.
  • While it's great for small business, zzp, it's not that great for bigger companies.
  • Many say this, and it's still not there. No payroll module...
  • I was able to cut my costs for a more complete and easy to use tool.
  • Many transactions, and accounting tasks on 1 platform, reduction in time by a lot.
  • Clients can pay without leaving your website (less drop-off, better conversions).
We had a lot of problems with Exact Online, support-wise and price-wise. So Zoho Books wins on every point there. While Exact offers way more options, it tends to be really slow... and complex. Again Zoho Books wins.

If you want an easy-to-use tool and not pay a lot of money, or if you are a small administration office with a few clients, this tool will be perfect for you.
It's a fully cloud based solution that's easy to manage and easy to use. It offers many options that competition also offer but for double the price. And due to the price it's really nice for small companies or zzp (freelancer). You can grant access to clients, and manage multiple projects.

Sadly when you have a bigger company and you want to integrate third party applications they miss a lot, in addition to the no payroll module. And some other features bigger companies would like to have.
