Pros

I also like that I can attach receipts to my expenses. I'm very thankful for Zoho Books and hope they continue to meet the needs of sole proprietors like me.

To conclude, Zoho Books is easy to understand and its configuration is quick and easy. The automation of the system is great and you save a lot of time.

That said, the Zoho family of products are solid, so if you have need for an accounting product and you are familiar with accounting software, this product would be a great choice.

Pros

Fields to fill and perfectly links the data from one end like ap and AR to the bank reconciliation. Great reports on transactions for the month or period if interest.

We love that it helps us streamline efforts, is easy to use, and is easy to train others on. QuickBooks Online has definitely been one of the best technology pieces of our administration.

This software has a lot of great features, the best of them all is the ability to import data from.

Cons

The payment plans are a little frustrating. The limits are on the number of contacts and as a business with lots of contacts and only one transaction often per contact it gets really expensive.

Bad automatic matching, paypal multi-currency feed all over the place.

The another problem of this software is that this software is very difficult for the new users and it is not so easy to learn how to handle our accounts and invoices.

Cons

Horrible experience with poor customer support, poor documentation, false advertising, high fees, long payment delay. Bad platform for hourly billing.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

The problem is that doing your own taxes online becomes risky the more you have to account for.

AR

Other than tracking my expenditures, the whole system is a pain. Error messages constantly received because "there's a message from your bank" bla bla bla.

Zoho Books

The software was great but a little more than I needed

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Easy to use with plenty of features. Pricing was fair. Everything was spot on and I would recommend it.

Cons

Honestly it is a little too much for my simple one person business. My accountant works with Quickbooks so I just use that online.

Zoho Books

Zoho Books is pretty good but lacks in some major areas

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The best part about this software is the price and the fact that it natively integrates with all other Zoho products including Zoho CRM and Zoho Inventory. This means that the customer, inventory, and pricing modules of Zoho Books are awesome and WAY more capable than quickbooks online.

Cons

Just to preface, I am a quickbooks online user. I don't feel that Zoho Books is as easy to use as quickbooks in a few major areas: 1. Reconciliation is much easier in quickbooks and I prefer quickbooks bank feeds as well. 2. Quickbooks has a MUCH better mobile app 3. Quickbooks has more third party apps and better interfaces with many third party apps. For these reasons, we actually use Zoho Inventory and CRM with quickbooks and not Zoho Books. Zoho continues to improve the product so one day maybe we will be able to switch but I don't feel that it meets all of our needs at this point.
