Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Creator Platform

We use a Course Management app in Zoho Creator to track activity in our English language courses that we give onsite at our customers' place of business or homes. We have all schedules set up and classes can be cancelled and rescheduled on the app. In addition, we collect attendance and lesson plan information for each class. The information that is input creates reports and also creates invoices from teachers for the classes that they have taught.
  • Allows us to have an app for our exact needs. We had searched and searched for solutions and even tried some off-the-shelf, ready built apps but none of them were complete. With Zoho Creator we were able to create the app that we needed.
  • We have the ability to access our app across all devices.
  • We also have the ability to update and add functions to the app as we discover and identify other needs.
  • I think that Zoho Creator needs to have better training tools made for the non-developer user. The marketing information makes it sound like you can build an app with no real coding knowledge. From my experience, that is simply not true. There are things that are relatively simple to do, but other things definitely need more advanced coding.
  • We really have not tracked the savings in a dollar amount, but our overall ability to have a birds eye view of all of our courses and classes at any moment has been a great tool. And we save time when we need information about courses or classes because the reports are there and ready when needed.
I really did not evaluate any competing platforms.
I would say Zoho Creator is good for two things: creating simple applications without the need of a developer, or for creating complex apps to meet your specific business process needs, but in this case, it is best to have an experienced developer work on your project.
