Overall Satisfaction with Zoho CRM

Zoho is being used across the entire company to handle all customer records, leads, sales, etc. With our old CRM system, we found it was a pain to constantly update, and it wasn't very user friendly... Zoho has changed that issue. It makes it possible for us to have the most up to date information at all times. The business problems we are solving is just having an accurate database across all contacts. We have realized a lot of people are no longer with organizations, or addresses have changed, and it has made gathering everything much simpler.
  • Links all companies to their Parent Companies, which for our industry, is a big deal.
  • We like how we can customize any report, field, smart rule, dashboard, etc.
  • It is extremely simple to export any information we need.
  • I do wish it was a bit "smarter" that it could sense duplicate entries and simply update fields when it recognizes a dupe.
  • I wish it had an easier integration with our marketing platform, HubSpot.
  • I wish there was a way to mass update information, via spreadsheet upload, WITHOUT having the Zoho ID.
  • Zoho has helped us increase sales.
  • We can easily give access to specific customer files & contracts to a limited number of individuals in my team.
  • It has been extremely convenient for all members of our marketing team to be able to upload all marketing materials, so they are easily accessible to any of our sales guys... especially if they are on the road or on a call.
The only other CRM system we used prior to Zoho was ACT!. We felt that ACT! was extremely out dated, and at the time, it was not web based. It was a database stored on our network and it was extremely difficult to use and update. If we were working out of the office, we were not able to access the ACT! database, and our move to Zoho changed that issue.
Zoho is great for anyone who has to handle a customer database -- large or small. With the customizable views, reports, dashboards, you can be sure that you are getting everything you need from the software. The ability to add customizable modules is also extremely helpful. As for less appropriate scenarios, I truly don't have any. Being a portfolio of companies, we use this across the board... our companies range from large to small, and it's been great for all of them!
