Why Zoho is Perfect for Startups?

Your Startup is unique. And if there’s one thing Zoho has always been about, it’s providing a solution that fits your needs—not the other way around. This is why we present you today Zoho One: 40+ integrated apps to help your business in every way possible—marketing, sales, finance, HR, and more.

Also, since these apps are built on the same platform, they all work together seamlessly. No need to switch between different systems or even different software suites. Check out how Zoho for Startups is a no-brainer!

 Customizable

There’s nothing more frustrating than investing your time and energy in a software product that just doesn’t work for you. Maybe it has too many features, or maybe it doesn’t have the ones you need. Or maybe the UX is too complicated and you can’t figure out how to customize the software to fit your business’s needs.

Well, if you’ve ever felt this way about another software product, we’re here to tell you that Zoho is different. They’re all about customization so that you can make the software match your business’s individual requirements.

This software is designed to be flexible enough to fit into any workflow. You can easily rearrange cards on a Kanban board by simply dragging and dropping them into place—you don’t have to go through a bunch of menus or work around complicated controls or buttons in order to get this done.

You can also choose which features are visible on a dashboard so that your team only sees the ones that are relevant for their job. This not only makes for a less cluttered interface, but also prevents confusion by allowing everyone on your team to use the exact tools they need without getting overwhelmed with options they won’t use.

Don’t spend another dollar on tools that don’t satisfy all of your requirements.

Affordable

One of the toughest challenges for a new startup is working with a limited budget—and we know it can be tricky to find products that meet all your needs without breaking the bank.

We’ve got great news! From business chat to online invoicing to accounting software, these tools will help you organize your processes and streamline your workflows, so you can take your Startup to the next level without having to empty your budget.

Other than that, Zoho offers free online training resources to help you and your team get up to speed quickly. It even has a free community forum where you can find helpful answers to your questions. Zoho also offers full-service plans at lower rates than competitors.

Suite of Zoho One Tools

When you first start a business, it’s easy to have a handle on everything. You do the accounting, schedule meetings, and decide what to do next. But as your business grows, it quickly becomes impossible to keep track of all the moving parts. As your business scales up, so too should your tech stack.

That’s why Zoho for Startups is designed to grow with you. Zoho One is a suite of tools designed to help you manage every aspect of your business—and it’s all included in one convenient package. Plus, there’s no need to purchase software for each department—even if you’re adding more departments with new tools regularly. You can start small with just the Sales and Support tools, then add on Zoho Books, Zoho Sign, or any of the dozens of other tools included in the suite as you go. Zoho One makes it easy to add new users and tools as your company grows and expands.

Identify your quickest win

Finding your quick win is one of the best ways to get your team on board. When we asked successful entrepreneurs how they were able to get their teams to use Zoho, what stood out was that they picked a single project and used it as a “toe in the water” for Zoho. This enabled them to gain buy-in from their teams by showing the value that a new tool can bring to their business.

How do you find this quick win? We have seen three common approaches:

#1 Identify your biggest pain point and work backwards.

#2 Look at existing processes in sales and marketing automation that are done manually, then look for apps that help automate those processes.

#3 Find an app that you believe will have the biggest impact on your business and start using it.

For example, one of our customers had been looking at buying a competitive live chat solution but decided instead to try SalesIQ first. When they saw how easy it was for them to identify which website visitors were interested in sales or support conversations, they decided not only did they not need the other product. Also, it naturally led to them looking at some of the other Zoho products like CRM (to manage all those leads).

Learn from free online resources

Need help with any of the apps? Online video tutorials made by Zoho Partners are your best resources. These are people who have worked directly with all Zoho apps with thousands of businesses and have likely experienced your exact use case. A screen share through a video is great since you can follow along directly with the host.

Why teach yourself instead of leaning on Zoho support? We always recommend taking your software learning into your own hands. That way you can solve any problem as it arises, as opposed to waiting for sometimes unpredictable support responses. It’s the best way to ensure the software can quickly adapt to the changing needs of your startup.

The best video tutorials are on the Bluroot YouTube channel. Lior Izik also posts some great content. Alternatively, step-by-step guides work well if you can’t enable the audio of a YouTube video.
