Great Option For Small Businesses

2017-11-14

Pros

Zoho Invoice is a great option for small businesses looking for an invoicing program. It is cost-effective and easy to use.

Cons

Zoho Invoice does not have the full suite of reporting tools and functions as other accounting software programs (such as Zoho Books), it is only for invoicing.

Simple invoicing solution for small businesses

2018-05-18

Pros

Simple, cloud based invoicing system that can be accessed anywhere. Nice clean interface with some very professional invoice templates available as standard. Well priced and good uptime.

Cons

I would often come across features I needed that simply weren't available in Zoho Invoice and required me to rather move over to the more expansive Zoho Books instead.

Zoho is a great invoicing tool for small businesses

2018-05-19

Pros

Zoho Invoice may not have all the bells and whistles of Zoho Books but it is an affordable alternative to someone who does not want the accounting side of things but want to still have a basic overview of their financial standing as a business.

Cons

1) Zoho Invoice does not have a feature that allows you to know when a client has seen an email about a payment. This means you may not know if a client has seen your email unless they acknowledge it. 2) My continued gripe with Zoho mobile apps for Android still rings true. While the mobile app has the basic functions of the web interface, compared to iOS, the Android app just does not function as well. 3) The Client Portal does not offer much functionality to a client other than to check their statements, the process of communication has to be started by you to give an estimate and so on. If there was a way to allow a client to also initiate communication from the portal, it would be better.

So far, so good! Definitely a great value

2017-09-07

Pros

I love that Zoho Books is the expanded version of Zoho Invoice. Its easy to use, effortless, and I feel it's appropriate for smaller businesses who don't need the bells and whistles, yet.

Cons

The cost is pretty outstanding if you go with a Zoho One subscription. They want per seat but every person on your team needs a seat, even if they don't use the application afforded in their seat.

Value for money!

2017-10-13

Pros

I started using Zoho invoice and upgraded to Zoho books, the tool completely takes care of your all accounting needs.

Cons

- Sometimes a bit confusing to use - User management could be better Not many cons, Zoho tools do come with a bit traditional UI but that is fine as they get the work done.

I love Zoho

I love the organisation of Zoho Invoice; Every feature has its own little dashboard (see projects and contacts below) and things are generally easy to find.

I have been using Zoho for years

2016-11-25

Back then I only needed Zoho Invoice, but through the years I needed more organization than the invoicing program offers so I upgraded to Zoho Books.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

Customer Support and the lack of detail in payments received. My bookkeeper struggles to reconcile my PayPal payments because the fees aren't identified.

Fantastic accounting software

2018-03-15

faster book keeping and more robust financial controls

Pros

Easy to understand with a logical approach to entering data. Most accounting packages seem obsessed with every payment and receipt being tied to an invoice, and although Zoho makes invoicing super easy it makes entering a cash sale just as easy. The amount of time this has saved me is immeasurable. I also appreciate the pricing of Zoho and you get a lot of bang for your buck too. Although I'm quite an experienced book keeper I am not overly experienced in online accounting software and I found Zoho easy to understand and had my accounts being entered within minutes. Highly recommend
