Zoho One replaces the patchwork of scattered cloud applications, legacy tools, and paper-based processes with one operating system for your entire business.

“A suite like Zoho One typically costs hundreds of dollars and even then customers have to do software rationing. With Zoho One, not only are we doing away with the problem of disparate software but also making enterprise applications available to small businesses at consumer prices,” said Sridhar Vembu, founder of Zoho.


Zoho One features all the applications a business needs to acquire and serve customers.  Zoho One includes solutions for marketing, sales, and customer support, finance, collaboration, communications, and personal productivity.

4. Finance and CRM are a perfect combination 


There are plenty of very good accounting applications and there are very good CRM applications too.  Zoho One features a rare combination of finance and CRM.

Zoho One finance includes functions for:

  • Creating quotes, invoices, and tracking receivables
  • Managing your payables, vendors, and employee expenses
  • Categorizing transactions, tracking cash flow, and monitoring your financial health
  • Managing customer subscriptions, recurring bills, and much more
  • Integration with CRM


If your business has not integrated its CRM with accounting and finance operations, your business lacks the 360-degree perspective that is essential for rapid growth and better decision making.


5. Automate routine tasks to save time


Automation is not just for big corporations. Unfortunately, many small businesses are at a disadvantage because they lack the technology for automating recurring functions. With Zoho One even a small business will have enterprise-level capabilities.

Business process automation will increase performance, productivity, growth, and profitability. What small business doesn’t need that?  The more limited your business’s resources are the greater reason you have to leverage Zoho One’s automation features.

Zoho has built automation capabilities into the applications on the Zoho One platform.

With Zoho one your business can automate your sales, marketing, billing, accounting, and most of the repetitive and tedious tasks.  Automation raises your focus from running your business to making your customers happy.


6. Unified business intelligence is transformational


 Having all your business applications on the Zoho One platform is an advantage for analysis. In addition, Zoho includes enterprise-level Business Intelligence which small businesses rarely can afford otherwise.

Zoho One’s business intelligence capabilities are powered by Zoho Analytics. Analytics provides the right data at the right time for better decisions. Better decision making at every level in your business will transform your business like nothing else can.

7. Scalability is critical for a growing business
