Powerful team-collaboration tool with stunning extras and a generous free plan

2019-04-29

Several features and tools would make a compelling sidegrade for my team but I'm not sure the learning curve is worth it.

Pros

Zoho Connect is more than a project management or team collaboration tool, it's an online file cabinet, library, calendar, call tool, integrated chat, docs, presentation tool, manuals, and tons more, with extensive integration with all of Zoho's other apps and tools.

Cons

Only 100 GB file storage for an enterprise plan is pretty stingy!

Amazingly usable project management, business management tool, and repository

2018-09-26

We also use it to assign tasks to individuals, keep a company calendar, store commonly used files there, have a company manual, and it logs our chat on Zoho Cliq.

Pros

This includes calendars, events, tasks, kanban boards, chat, files repository, manuals/documents, and a link for Zoho Creator apps to sit in.

Cons

They could make it better by integration it into the other Zoho apps more, like Teamdrive.

Exactly what small teams need

2019-05-07

I absolutely love the "manuals" feature where you are able to create standard operating procedures with ease and share them with specific colleagues and groups.

Pros

What's also great is the integration with other tools like Zoho CRM and Zoho Projects for scraping tasks or Google Calendar for syncing events.

Cons

Also the mobile app doesn't allow the creation of new forum posts.

Yo! Yo! get Zoho... Connect & more!!

2017-11-09

If we weren't so Windows heavy I feel like we could move from MS (Office365) for email, our calendars, & more, wishing we could further integrate with their solutions for ZohoMail, et al.

Pros

I've often used SharePoint (who hasn't) as a project collaboration tool.

Cons

Maybe the logo...the toddler like A,B,C building blocks don't exactly scream "Enterprise Solution" :) Book-cover aside, on its proverbial-pages, I find it to be a feature rich & my team never has to worry about how/where/when they can access the tool.

Great Fit for Big Organizations, I Wish It Connected With More Stuff

2019-07-29

Pros

-Really smooth interface, great mobile app, great place for the team to collaborate.

Cons

-Kind of hard to figure out whether to use Zoho Cliq or Zoho Connect, doesn't make as much sense if you have less than ~30 employees.

The ideal social network for companies

2019-04-13

We have created communities and groups with the students of our training courses, that has allowed us to maintain direct contact with them and verify the impact of our training activities, we also pay attention to the suggestions and requests that they make us in regards to the topics We are interested in this in terms of technology and telecommunication.

Pros

It is a meeting place that helps develop our capacity for professional collaboration, because it allows you to connect with people with professional experience and colleagues, create your own community, and increase productivity in your office and work team.

Cons

It would be good to add more applications to the list of integrations

ZOHO MY CONNECTING PARTNER

2019-09-20

With this amazing software I can easily collaborate with my colleagues through social media network which helps in unifying my team and also my work processes as well.

Pros

Firstly it creates useful chat rooms in order to discuss certain issues with my project members also am able to send them each and every document or file through it.

Cons

The first and the only drawback is it’s price that is kind of in-affordable for some persons as they do required this type of product in a reasonable package. Also, I know the quality has some expenses as well but the manufacturers should listen to this one suggestion to make an affordable plan. Apart from this everything is great to work on it.

Tool for collaborating and communicating ideas

2019-05-27

We use it when we have to carry out academic courses in other cities and we need to organize the logistics of everything with the personnel located in those offices, diminishes notably the distance and has allowed us to coordinate from the central office the trainings without needing to make previous trips and unnecessary expenses.

Pros

The calendar is phenomenal and the function to schedule notifications is very precise.

Cons

It is necessary to improve the mobile application and include as many functions as possible, this will facilitate the work for many.

Amazing Collaboration Tool for Teams

2019-04-16

We moved to Zoho Connect form another platform specifically for the ability to assign and track tasks within the organization and it has been amazing.

Pros

The ability to interact in real time with team members is a great option as well, if someone mentions you inside of the platform you get a notification that is easy to respond too.

Cons

The learning curve was a bit steeper than expected and I found myself having to train every member of our team.

Customize to meet your needs

2017-05-16

I am able to organize requests from various stakeholders, categorize them, schedule follow-ups, and document conversations/collateral all through the same platform.

Pros

I like that it is a very adaptable product. My colleague and I both use it and she is sales and I am marketing so we are coming from two completely different angles.

It's additional fascinating features that made it famous includes like, comment, share ideas, discussions etc.

Cons

I haven't find any flaws in this software. It is really fantastic. The only limitation is that sometimes people have to face difficulties during it's set up and it lacks ability of documentation.

Horrible Support, not reliable or responsive, application has issues, very buggy

2017-11-07

none

Pros

Has potential, great user interface. It truly has a lot of would be great features, looks great but it falls short due to poor technical support and software issues.

Cons

Very buggy and their custom app is not reliable. Wouldn't put any important information that your business relies on in this app, you can lose your info. very easily. There is no sense of urgency on the part of support and they are not very effective either. Not really business friendly. This app is not ready for the business community.

Another Great (and Cheap) Zoho Product!

2019-07-17

I would be lost without Zoho managing my calendar, events, tasks, and docs!

Pros

It's simple and easy to use.

Cons

Setting it up took some time. There's a bit of a learning curve with this one that I did not experience with their other products.
