    The extensive list of applications included in Zoho One is the best thing about it. There is at least one application for almost all your business needs in Zoho One suite. In some instances, there are even multiple apps that can fulfill your requirement. Do you need an accounting application? You have Zoho books, invoice, expense, inventory, subscription. You have Zoho CRM to maintain your leads and customers. There are Zoho campaigns and marketing hub for your marketing team. Zoho Analytics for BI and business analytics to make dashboards and reports. The best part is that all these applications come tightly integrated, i.e, you do not have to pass data between these applications manually; it'll all happen automatically in the background. All these come at a meager price. I don't think there is any other suite of applications at this price point; hence, Zoho One is a lifesaver for any start-up starting out. The list of applications can become extremely overwhelming when deciding which one to use for which case. This can become even more daunting since even the Zoho support staff won't be able to tell you fully which one you should use. For example, Both campaigns and marketing hub helps you create marketing campaigns; now, which one should you use? Or Zoho books can manage subscriptions, inventory, invoices, and expenses, but there are separate apps for these needs too, so should you use a particular application of just Zoho Invoice? You can end up in analysis paralysis while deciding which isn't beautiful. The second problem is you might not even need all the applications in the Zoho One suite; now, there is no way you can remove a few applications from the billing. You will have to either buy the entire Zoho One suite or buy the applications you need individually, which will make the overall billing very costly Zoho One gives us a bunch of applications that empower us to run our business smoothly. It has benefited us immensely since we do not have to look and search for other third-party applications for day-to-day activities. Since most of the applications are very easy to implement and run, we do not even need to hire an additional resource to handle the suite, and that's a good save on the expense.

    1. Easy to get started with. Pull data from nearly any source automatically: your CRM, your accounting software, your CRM, vendor supplied data 2. Simple to build reports. Pivot tables, charts, etc. Slightly more complicated to put these into a dashboard but still straightforward. 3. Easy to get data out into useful format. Export spreadsheets, automate emailing of reports, create graphics for slides. 1. No way to automatically share a report to Zoho workdrive, google drive, FTP, or dropbox. This would be a really useful feature. Rather than email reports I'd rather share them to cloud storage and I wish that were automatic. 2. Sharing with external parties doesn't have good access-control methods, unless you pay for your recipients as users. I wish there was a way to share to external users with a login that was unique to each user. 3. Integration with Zoho Flow is really minimal. I wish that there were triggers and actions that would allow me to use Zoho Flow to automatically generate and send reports on a schedule or in response to a particular trigger. An inexpensive yet powerful solution for reporting. Consider Zoho before more expensive brands. Using Zoho Analytics is also recommended if you're already a Zoho One subscriber. We run a high intensity sales and marketing operation and have to integrate data from many different sources (leads, prospects, client data) with our internal data. Using a BI analytics package like ZOHO Analytics allows us to perform analysis with all these sources without having to integrate external data with our own databases. Zoho Analytics is also our preferred solution for creating client dashboards that can show clients our progress on projects and results.

    Zoho analytics supports data compilation from almost any given source. Within my team , we have connected Zoho analytics successfully with customized in-house applications , cloud based relational databases ( including nosql databases ) and critical business applications that we are unable to do without on a daily basis like Mailchimp, Google analytics , Surveymonkey , Twitter ads and the list goes on. Zoho analytics also connects with standard file formats like .csv , html, JSON ,XML etc These are very important file formats for successfully uploading data from spreadsheets, text files, web url feeds into Zoho analytics and for pulling data directly from our cloud file storage platform of choice. There is no way for me to apply multiple data synchronization settings for a single datasource and Zoho struggles to generate real-time insights since data synchronization only takes place at specific time intervals. Zoho analytics is providing key stakeholders within the context of my organization with access to critical insights into important business trends . A top benefit of Zoho analytics is how everyone is able to access key business actionable data insight easily without requiring advanced technical knowledge.

    To be honest I am very disappointed with the capabilities and its limitations are forcing our business to look at a new CRM / business reporting vendor. I think youve done a good job configuring some standard reports that are useful to most companies My understanding of Zoho reports was that you could point the reports at any data-source within the CRM system, in any module. But this is not the case. Therefore the reporting I wanted to achieve, particularly using the Sales Order section is not possible. I think youve done a good job configuring some standard reports that are useful to most companies but have not provided the mechanism for companies with bespoke requirements to build custom dashboards in a flexible enough way.

    The ability to view and export the underlying data is terrific. Way too many limitation on the amount of data that can be imported. If the amount of rows that can be imported at a time is capped, 10K rows simply isn't enough. 100K is more doable. If you are looking for multiple people to admin the product, this probably isn't the best solution. It only allows for 1 admin user which is a significant con in my opinion. Also very little control on the design of charts, graphs, tables, etc. No where near the competitive products out there. We no longer have to rely on developers to build custom reports for internal and external viewers. Jeff: Thanks for your review. About the import rows limitation, you can actually import 1,000,000 rows or 100 MB. If the file size is larger than 100MB, you can zip (so that the file size comes within the 100 MB limit) and upload. And this is from the user interface. If you use the Upload Tool utility, you can import even more. About administration, yes there is only one suoer admin. However, the 'Database Owner' role is capable of doing everything at the respective reporting database level (other than deleting the database).

    We've tried to use Zoho Analytics to set up and visualize reports (e.g. one showing all new customers overall and one showing one with all customers subscribing for a specific product). Unfortunately, despite more than a dozen of meetings with Zoho's support team, we haven't been able to get a single one working properly. The UX is really bad and the functionality is limited enough to not even be able to set up the simplest reports.

    The integration with Zoho CRM is a little misleading. It is not a full integration. So if you are making the investment into the integration, keep in mind it is limited currently. There is no integration with the Quotes, Orders or Invoice Modules. These are essential with regards to sales. So it is a little disappointing. I will update this review when they have added something here.

    Zoho Reports has the features that we were looking for - Import of data from an API endpoint in JSON format (no specific schema)Scheduled importsDrag-and-drop creation of visualisationsExport of visualisations in PDF, CSV & Image formatsFairly easy to useScheduled emailsPrivacy settings per visualisationCloud hostedEmbeddable visualisationsRebranding option The best part is that these features don't cost us zillions of dollars. The pricing tiers are reasonable, and they provide a sufficient trial period. To top it all, Zoho Reports is not your entry-level BI tool. It has a comprehensive set of features that make it well worth the money, and more. We evaluated many other tools. In terms of features and ease of use, Tableau was the best. Zoho Reports came in a close second. Most others did not qualify our criteria - either because they did not work well with schema-less NoSQL JSON data, or they did not provide the kind of features we were looking for (e.g. embeddable visualizations, scheduled emails, rebranding). We chose Zoho Reports over Tableau because Zoho Reports comes with a better tiered pricing model. Not to mention, the Zoho Reports support team has been excellent!
    I think Zoho Reports is generic enough to be well suited for many use cases that involve analysis of large data sets. With its ability to produce a wide variety of visualizations, Zoho Reports is a great option for someone who doesn't want to spend a zillion bucks on Tableau or some of the other more expensive business intelligence software out there. And all this without sacrificing too much in terms of features or functionality.
    Zoho Reports connects with our API endpoint to import data into Zoho Reports. It does this quite well, without enforcing specific schema restrictions on our data. Our data is stored in NoSQL database, and our API endpoint produces JSON data documents, each with different structure depending on the dataset being requested. Zoho Reports automatically interprets our data, and converts into a set of rows and columns. Once our data is imported into Zoho Reports, creating different type of visualizations is a breeze. Zoho Reports enables us to create many types of charts, dashboards, pivot tables and more. Zoho Reports has this feature called "Custom Formula", that allows us to create new columns in the data that are computed by applying various transformations to existing columns. For example, we are able to create a "Is Weekday" column by applying custom formula on our "Date" column. This "Is Weekday" column enables us to create visualizations that compare weekday vs. weekend performance numbers of our customers' shops. The visualizations are "live". Zoho Reports can be set up to pull data from our API endpoint periodically (e.g. once every day). As the data gets updated, so do all the visualizations. We are able to publish these "live" visualizations via permalinks or embed them within another web page, so that our customers always see the most up-to-date visualizations. Scheduled emails is another great feature. Once we set up a tailor-made report/dashboard for our customer, we are able to set up scheduled emails. Once set up, Zoho Reports automatically sends emails to our customers with the up-to-date copy of visualizations as attachments.
    There is a fair bit of learning curve before you can get productive with Zoho Reports. It is not so steep that it'd scare off users, but it does take some effort to get used to the various features and options in Zoho Reports. A private hosting option would be really good to have, as some of our customers might have data security concerns. Although Zoho Reports takes good measures to keep the data safe and secure, the data still gets imported from our cloud servers to Zoho Reports servers. This can be a concern for some users, for example large corporations or government entities who have their own private cloud infrastructure. Editing of column names could have been easier. At the moment you have to right click on each column > click rename > type new name > Save. On save, the entire table is reloaded and the view focuses on the left-most column, instead of the column just renamed. If there are more than 5 or 6 columns, this quickly becomes irritating because you end up having to scroll to the right to get to the next column you want to rename.

    I looked at MS Power BI, Tableau, and Google Data Studio. I am also a user of other reporting and analytic tools, primarily Microsoft technologies. Google Data Studio was just counter-intuitive to use, I didn't get very far with it, and Zoho had a lower barrier to entry for quicker, affordable, and good-looking results than the other two.
    It's very helpful for small companies with a limited budget to perform some data analysis and visualization. It's probably super helpful if you are tied into the Zoho ecosphere for your other business applications, although we are not in that position. It's also great that Zoho requires no on-prem installed component, for people without access to IT support and limited rights to install applications. Because you will eventually run into charting limitations, if you have high expectations and IT support, however, many people are going to be happier with Tableau from the point of view of options. Please note that my ratings are based on the Basic plan, so there are features Zoho has that I will not rate because, at this level, they are too limited to be practical.
    Very good bang for the buck, especially if you pre-handle your data before uploading so you're not reliant on the Zoho SQL syntax of raw tables and have fewer, wider rows. Reasonable assortment of chart types. Usable design surface, especially for a fully web based system. Reasonably intuitive organization of content types. Nice handling of aggregation functions.
    Limitations in SQL syntax are difficult to guess at; it's a matter of trial and error to find out what won't work as expected. The docs are a little mystifying on this point ("Please do note that this is just a suggested list of functions and is not limited to it. Although, the suggested list is guaranteed to work.") Similarly, you can embed HTML in a dashboard component, including script functions, but it's not clear what will work and what will not. It's just a question of trying stuff out. Sometimes it's difficult to know when a change has been saved automatically and when it needs an explicit action. In a similar way, when you're designing a chart, it's sometimes difficult to tell whether you were in View mode or Edit mode after you click Settings (there is no visual clue at that point) and sometimes it seems as though what you do in Settings will have different results depending on what mode you were in. I could be wrong about what's really happening, and whether it's related to mode, but have definitely experienced different results with the same action. This especially applies to formatting such as axis fonts. When I'm in the Explorer and click to open a designer, I would love it if the workspaces tab could be clicked to go to the Explorer (it's just a dropdown of available workspace names). I know I can use the sidebar to do this, but it's counter-intuitive that I can't click on that top tab the same way I can click between other top tabs to bring multiple designer surfaces forward while I work. A small thing but it gets me every time. I don't find the generated chart and dashboard examples helpful.

    Quality of Support is superior to any other solution. Adding an unbeatable price, it's been a no-brainer for us to select Zoho
    As mentioned, I would not recommend ZOHO as the system of choice when implementing finance reports only. It is doable but not really simple. And especially when working in multi-currency environments, it is not so helpful. There are many use cases, however, where ZOHO can add tremendous value. Especially with smaller companies and startups, ZOHO is an amazing and easy to use tool to Analyse larger amounts of data. I have worked on another implementation with bars and restaurants that used Orderbird but had limited reporting functionality when analyzing peak times for business by product and hour of the day. ZOHO gave them an easy and well-suited solution.
    Outstanding User Support & Maintenance (have never experienced something like this before) Flexibility to arrange and combine data Sharing to other platforms via embed or public links Pricing is absolutely unbeatable
    ZOHO is particularly hard to use for financial data. We are managing around the kinks but it is not easy. Especially multi-currency functionalities and standard report structures like P&Ls, Cash Flows and Balance Sheet reports can only be done by tweaking and "cheating" the system Sometimes, performance is not the greatest but nothing highly critical (i.e. Loading times of reports) We have a huge database by now and it is not always easy to track which reports are most current and which ones just a draft especially when working in a multi-user environment. Maybe adding some statuses to more easily manage reports and folders could help...

    Zoho has MS Project beat in reporting. When we used reporting in MS Project you could only report on a specific project rather than all projects at once which is highly more useful. Especially since we do hundreds of projects each year, not just a few. This may have changed over the years. Not sure. Siterra was a completely different product so it is hard to compare, but the Zoho reporting is inferior to this product. Zoho reporting provides the minimum we need from reporting and that is good enough right now. It is important to note Zoho is very active in improving their product and making feature changes as they are requested. So, the product is constantly evolving and improving. I appreciate that.
    High level reporting is very good. However, when you try to zero in on things, it becomes more difficult to extract the information you are seeking. For example, I would like to be able to determine the next 5 tasks due in all projects across the board and be able to pull the comments for those tasks. That is not something I am able to do at present.
    ZOHO reports provides the high level view of project status' desired by our management, such as number of active projects, percentage complete, etc. ZOHO reports is able to pull the custom categories we have created in the project modules and provide reporting, again at a high level view without providing too much detail. ZOHO reports provides different outputs for the reports such as exporting in Excel. This allows us to manipulate the information from the pulled reports.
    Since I am not a database person, trying to figure out the links between fields to get the information I need is at times cumbersome. I avoid it all together if I can. If a project template does not contain milestones, the reports will not pull properly. Not all of the fields in ZOHO Projects are able to be pulled into the reporting. It would be a great feature to have all the fields available where they can just be pulled into the report.

    Currently we make use of ZOHO reports to assist us in managing our help desk environment. These reports help us to identify problems and trends on an ongoing basis. We also make use of our ZOHO reports to present all our help desk statistics monthly to the board and to ensure that we a distributing work load correctly across all of our resources,
    At the moment, we only use Zoho reports for reporting on help desk data. It works really well for this purpose. The ability to bring data in from alternative sources such as CSV, Web Feeds and pretty much any SQL statements allows ZOHO Reports to fit into pretty much any area of business and deliver the exact information required.
    Out of the box reports allow for easy set up with very little knowledge required to get the information you need. Dashboards are a very quick way of obtaining information on the fly and provide a very extensive amount of information. The ability to drill down in reports is also really useful when trying to expand on information that is displayed by default. Being able to schedule reports for automatic delivery to email recipients at specific times and having the ability to share reports via a web link makes life a breeze as once it is all set up, it goes out as and when you want them to.
    Defining custom views and reports are not always that straight forward and can take some time and numerous changes before they return the data in the format you want. Being given the ability to customise the layout of the reporting portal would also be nice. Haven't found a way of doing that yet. Sometimes when trying to create a new report, the entire portal freezes up after selecting the report type and you have to go out of the portal and then sign back in again before everything starts working.

    Zoho Reports was probably the best reporting suite between the similar products mentioned above but the lack of integration and proper support within the other Zoho products made it unusable.
    Zoho Reports is great for small to medium sized business (and so is the price point) but just doesn't contain the level of functionality that an large enterprise needs.
    Zoho Reports was one of the strongest features of the Zoho CRM suite and was a large reason why we were looking at Zoho overall. Very easy to use pre-built templates. Was able to understand how to utilize the tool without "reading the instructions" initially.
    This is more of a problem with the Zoho suite overall. When you look at a product like Zoho you expect all the different modules to interact with each other and integrate extremely well. However the different Zoho modules are similar to SalesForce plugins in that they all integrate into the CRM but don't necessarily integrate with each other. Unable to create instant, live updating reports from Zoho Projects in Zoho reports. The reports have to be generated manually and the integration is just not done well. The customer service I received while using Zoho was the worst customer service I received from all the CRMs reviewed. While it wasn't bad customer service (compared to the cable company) it was the lowest quality of all the enterprise level CRMs. The Zoho Suite overall is very well suited for a small business but doesn't have the capabilities to properly support an enterprise level company.

    Today reporting has become one of the important factors as well as an important aspect of the company which affects its ratings. We often talk about various top reporting tools, but we fail to recognize the best ones, Zoho Reports is considered as one of them. One of the reasons why I choose it the most because Zoho Reports integrates seamlessly. It can report in a variety of ways such as charts, graphs, etc. and built with a lot of features like report sharing, mail scheduling which seems to be extremely useful. It is very easy to implement and can create a relational database with ease. When it comes to CRM, it is one of the tools which offers the best customer service. You know what is interesting, it offers complete online reporting and especially Business Intelligence service which can be accessible anytime and anywhere.
    Although Zoho Reports is the extremely useful app it has some negative aspects also. If you want to use it to the fullest, you must go through the high learning curve. Sometimes, the importer gets unsteady and on the other hand, sometimes you need to generate more and more info to work on some reports. For using slabs, its number of users is limited. It has problems regarding consolidating different entities as well as the implementation of SQL is also not proper. Even its modelled data set is not very helpful as it doesn't extract 100%. It shows some problems in creating complicated reports. If you ask about API, it's not good yet!! Some of the problems regarding loading of tables and reports should also be kept in mind!!!!

    Zoho Analytics was easy to set up and easy to implement. Even writing queries - albeit through a bit of a clunky interface - was pretty easy. I enjoyed being able to set this up and get the users running quickly.
    Zoho decided to forge my e-mail address for all notifications from our analytics account. Their e-mails used to come from a Zoho notifications address. Now, they are sending e-mails - from their own servers - that purport to be from me. Naturally, my company's spam blocker bounces these. Since new users must respond to one of these spoofed e-mails, I can no longer set up new users, at all. They're not caught in a spam trap. They are actually being returned by our server. Zoho's one and only solution has been to demand that my company make a change to our DNS servers. Then, Zoho can send what appear to be legitimate e-mails on behalf of anyone at my company, at will. That's not acceptable and should not be required. If you want that as a convenience for your users, it works - with appropriate legal agreements in place. Plenty of companies do this with SPF and DKIM records for internally controlled servers. For an external company to provide no other option (and not mention it until it was too late), this is a huge red flag. Zoho even provides instructions for how to make this change on GoDaddy. Be warned. You know nothing about their internal controls and yet you're giving them license to send e-mail on your behalf. AVOID!

    First rate. A larger organisation with petabytes of data will not be servefd by this tool, but SMEs wish to pull data from Zoho CRM, Google, Quickbooks, etc. etc. get everything they need out of the box, plus more.
    For what we needed, the cost could not be beat. In particular, the ability to freely expose the dashboards beyond our company without extra licensing was a no-brainer.
    We obtain Zoho Analytics as part of our Zoho One suite. I did not expect much from the solution, seeing it initially as an 'add-on'. However, after using it to pull data from eight different sources and present activity reports and dashboards - including those we can expose directly to our customers, I was sold. This beast packs almost everything an SME will want for analytics, and then more. In addition, the support services from Zoho are second to none.
    The speed of dashboards and charts when displayed externally in presentations (yes, you can embed and brand your content into continually live products) is a little slow - it can take 10-15 seconds for a chart to come up. There is a limit to the number of SQL tables that can be called upon each other (a depth of three), though this can be overcome by writing tighter SQL statements.

    Love Zoho Reports- not giving it up anytime soon!
    When our company was selecting a new PM software one of the reason I chose Zoho Projects was because Zoho Reports integrated with seamlessly. Reports offered the info I wanted from Projects that other PM softwares couldn't offer. Other products had costly and complicated plugins- reports is cost effective and flexible
    It took some time to learn how to customize my reports and get the data that I needed. Now that I know how Reports functions I can get any of the data I need. I love that I can make reports for our clients and they update automatically everyday. If I can't accomplish what I want the customer support is great! I would love to see chat support offered in the future. Just like with Zoho Projects, often I know Zoho Reports can do what I want it to, I just need help finding the function within the software. Chat makes it super simple in Projects- please add it to Reports!!

    Customer support is awful. The company is based in India and getting someone to respond is a trial, let alone having a chat. It typically takes us 2-3 days to schedule a call when we need in-depth support (we are in the US).
    Zoho Reports allow for really nice data visualizations with a lot of flexibility in presentation, type of graphic, etc. Downloading underlying data is also easy to do.
    There could be some additional features making it easier to use, such as including data in the downloads that is not included in the visualization. When downloading data, ID numbers and keyword information isn't helpful, but if additional data was provided the user could get a much better idea of what they're looking at in order to use the data externally from Zoho. There's lots more that could be done to make it more flexible and increase functionality, but it serves our purposes.

    Zoho Reports is used as the primary reporting tool for the projects at our consulting company. The team of more than 30 consultants use Zoho Projects to manage multiple projects for private and public sector. The interface between the two applications is seamless and stable, we also use extra Zoho Reports static tables (with non transactional data) and we plan to include connections to other data from our ERP.
    We ended up to Zoho Projects and Zoho Reports, after a significant evaluation among several on-premise and cloud platforms. Cost, ease of use, licensing model, integrations with other Zoho (and external) applications, wealth of functionality and user interface, was our decision drivers. We like the distinction between standard and user filters.
    A short of programmability would be great like conditional formating, hyperlinking.
