Why Use Zoho Apps?
Zoho apps range from free to inexpensive. And now, with Zoho One, you can get all 40+ apps for a flat rate. No matter what processes your business needs, there is an app for that. And they integrate with the tools you already use.
Members of our BizSugar Mastermind Community are learning to use Zoho Connect whenever they participate in the BizSugar forum. It is built in Zoho Connect which is Zoho’s project management app and team collaboration software.
We used Zoho Sites to build the main BizSugar.com site. It is Zoho’s easy website builder. The Zoho CRM is very popular with business owners. Any business manager or owner and the freelancers and consultants who provide them services could benefit from using Zoho.
Who Uses Zoho?
Probably many people you already know. Our freelancer collaboration has been using Zoho Sheet for years. In her AMA (ask me anything), the CEO and Founder of Small Business Trends and BizSugar Anita Campbell, answered a question about why they use Zoho CRM:
For us, using Zoho CRM has been amazing. Advantages:
- Inexpensive. It’s part of the Zoho One suite, so the cost along with the dozen or so other Zoho apps we use is quite a deal.
- Customizable. We were able to customize what we do with it so that it fits our business (publishing). Not every CRM is malleable, and some are not flexible enough to accommodate businesses like ours that don’t sell physical product or ongoing services.
- Efficient. We’ve set it up so that we can generate a proposal/statement of work using the system, in minutes. Before it was this laborious, horribly inefficient process using Google Docs. I love Google Docs, but creating a new document by manually inserting information, was a colossal waste of time IMHO.
Our collaboration starting using Zoho because of the free version. Their paid versions have added features. In my role as Community Manager for the BizSugar Mastermind Community, I am using Zoho Connect daily, including Tasks (similar to Trello boards) and other integrations.
Zoho Apps are definitely worth checking out – and you can do it free by going to Zoholics.
