"Zoho Creator is an easy way to create forms"

What do you like best?

A user can start working with Zoho Creator in about ten minutes. It is very intuitive and requires very little configuration. Every time I need to collect data, Zoho is my application for the creation of forms, and it is easy to distribute the forms in a secure way by means of a link, a password or to embed them in another site. Zoho has excellent customizable workflows if you are able to handle minimal programming.

If you can devise an application, a business workflow, a business data scenario or anything else, Zoho Creator can handle it. They have previously created applications that can be modified to suit the needs of your business application, or you can create applications from scratch. Basic applications with basic workflow or notifications can be set in minutes. Creator integrates very well with other Zoho applications.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is very basic and you could probably use an update to modernize a bit. It would also be good if the user interface could be more highly personalized. I use Zoho Creator mainly to create forms that I send to people who do not require something very nice with a lot of graphic design. If I needed a visually appealing form, Zoho would not be my choice because it does not have many features.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The customer service is excellent. I have used live chat on occasion and there is always someone there and will contact me later if they can not solve the problem immediately. I recommend Zoho Creator if you require the functions it offers you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Zoho Creator is a quick way to create a web form for user submissions, for anything from an internal survey, a job-related data collection form or a client website submission form.

On the other hand, the report generator is very robust and has very flexible import/export tools.

"Zoho Creator is an effective tool to create applications for your business."

What do you like best?

It is a very easy to use application, its interface is very simple and friendly so its learning curve is null, can be used even by the least experienced person, we worked on the basis of a pre-existing template in the system as it fitted very well to meet our needs as a business, through Zoho Creator we were allowed to perform billing as well as employee management, tracking of built-in accounting, monitoring and inventory management, kitchen and menu management. In addition to its great integration with it integrates very well with other Zoho applications (for Zoho One users) such as Zoho CRM and Zoho Books.

What do you dislike?

I would like a modernization of the interface, since it is something basic, as well as expand a little customization of the board as for example have the ability to enter the logo of our business as background program, in addition to the lack of history storage so it would be of great help when making the accounting reports that we could have at least a history of the last three months and make balance sheet accounting to cite an example.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The applications are convenient for managing businesses. Therefore, businesspersons should start using it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have had this tool since the opening of our restaurant so it mainly helped us to organize, in the first instance with the creation and control of inventory of inputs and food, in addition to the design and implementation of the menu, in addition to the allocation and distribution of tables in the local, has been of great help so we have been growing as a business by the hand of Zoho Creator, we are pleasantly satisfied with its performance and efficiency so we will continue to use this program as it enjoys great reliability.

"Making apps with Zoho Creator is a breeze compared to traditional app development"

What do you like best?

Zoho Creator allows you to create reports and graphs, add filters and observe all the information of the company. It is ideal for medium-sized databases. It is ideal for programming business workflows. Record the time from the start to the completion of each task. Insert forms on websites. Share forms in blogs and social networks. Schedule the sending of reports or reminders of calls or events. Receive notifications at the moment by email, SMS or as Pop-up on your mobile.

What do you dislike?

Zoho Creator is a very efficient software, however you need to have better training tools for users who are not developers. The marketing information makes it look like you can create an application without real coding knowledge, but some idea of coding and programming structures is needed to create more robust apps, in my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With Zoho Creator you can create your databases and put them into production immediately. Zoho takes care of all security, uptime, backups and updates. Overall, I think I would recommend its implementation for common business productivity needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can leverage our existing insight, productivity and other business platforms to create concise and streamlined apps that can be used by our team with the need for advanced coding knowledge. Zoho Creator provides us with a way to create highly custom apps that can be tailors to our needs and refined to make the performance optimal for our projects, business policies and other specifications.

"A powerful application builder that's simple and intuitive to use"

What do you like best?

One of the coolest and most easiest tool on the market to create forms to get users to respond to. The turn around time to create a POC website is minimal with this tool. We could always sell some features internally to our client before going big with those features. UI is easy to navigate so all the workflows come easy and one can easily house a bit of data for the trial versions.

What do you dislike?

One problem which most of the Zoho users community have reported and we have also come across is its proprietary scripting language - though it is powerful and the driver behind the amazing Zoho creator platform - a dedicated set of associates are required to learn this language. They become your inevitable asset from there on as well to the clients too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Zoho Creator as an untimidating and effective way to build apps that can smoothly deliver business data without extensive time and resources. The foundation is solidly in place for you to implement just about any type of business data form I can think of.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's surprisingly easy to customize our apps, even after starting out with templates. The templates by default are generally very clean-looking with a professional and functional design. There usually isn't much else needed for us to do to improve upon the design. That really saves us from having to get creative and collaborate on ideas. The data that we've obtained through our Zoho Creator have been invaluable in understanding and improving many aspects of our business.

"Great tool for the creation and development, of all kinds, of applications."

What do you like best?

Thanks to Zoho creator we can create all kinds of applications for our company, and then offer them to our clients, without spending large amounts of money, paying for platforms such as google, where only companies with large investment capital can access, I can create in a way quick and easy applications, for shops, restaurants, schools and much more, with predefined templates, where the creation process is done very fast, with only a basic knowledge, in programming.

What do you dislike?

The programming code used in Zoho Creator is a little-known programming language, there is not much information on the internet, the documentation is very small, you must have basic knowledge in different programming languages, in order to use this language in a simple and uncomplicated way, but for novice developers, it can be a little difficult, to create the different sequences of applications, you must practice a lot, to understand the language deeply.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zoho Creator It is an ideal tool for all types of developers, and companies, that offer low cost application development services, here you can create applications for almost any purpose, for daily use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can create applications of all kinds, without major expenses, you should only have a basic knowledge of programming to develop all kinds of applications, thanks to this we can offer applications, almost for any use, to the different institutions and people that require our services, we can offer you a fair price, since we work expenses, are quite minimal.

"Zoho Creator - Good way for non developers to create apps"

What do you like best?

- Ease of use; competent users can get productive fairly quickly

- Departments can create useful apps without involving IT

What do you dislike?

Can be dangerous to let some users loose on this kind of thing. If they don't know what they are doing, IT ends up having to pick up the pieces - or worse, the business can end up using an app that isn't fit for purpose.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zoho Creator is a good option for non-developers to create simple apps, and increasingly useful for DevOps teams to demo proof of concept or prototype apps that might be developed using other tools. There aren't many tools in this space at this kind of price, so worth trying out to see if it works for your organisation.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows business department to create simple apps quickly that can provide value. Devops use this to prototype apps that might be delivered using other tools and technologies.

"Everyone can build an App"

What do you like best?

The best part of Zoho Creator is to crack the taboo among the people that only developers or techies can build an app. The customized buttons and process which Zoho creator builds is the amazing feature which motivates any user to create the app on their own for their requirements.

What do you dislike?

The mobile app can be worked with better UI and user-friendly which will help the people to go for the mobile usage compare to web app usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is highly recommendable to startups, non-profitable organizations and small upcoming teams to save time, efforts and cost which will help them to implement the lean strategies in their technology department. This will also reduce the dependency on the other teams to grow faster at the industry level.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially, we used to work with excels in data management and other cloud source platforms to save the data. Later we got to know about the Zoho platform which helped us to create our own customized apps and save the data into the Zoho forms. This will save time and efforts. The beauty of Zoho creator is that we can generate many reports using these data and connect to other Zoho applications.

What do you like best?

Its a whiteboard with tools where you can build whatever you want.

What do you dislike?

Its user interface is not that great to see.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to build a custom software which suits your business, with less coding knowledge & in Less time, go to Zoho Creator.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Majority of our Apps hardly takes few hours or a day to build. Complex Applications took a couple of months to build but it reduced 80% of our Manual Efforts. For a small team like us, it made a huge impact Since we could now deploy our resources for more impactful work. It's more than what we expected out of creator. In fact, we were able to achieve what we initially thought of doing. 99% of the time, we have never faced any major issues & Remaining 1% Support team did a wonderful job in helping us fix it. We could be able to send E-Receipts to Donors in just 1 Click, which took us months to do earlier. Automatic Reminder emails to Donors regarding Donation Followup. Automatic Donor tagging upon donation data upload. We run multiple events on a given date & Volunteer Sign Up is made easy. We use it for Student Attendance Tracking. We have embedded Zoho Forms in our website for people to sign up for our various initiatives. Even for donations, we capture Donor's data using Zoho Creator forms. We had seen 400% growth within 2 months after started using Zoho Creator. I could not imagine work without Zoho Creator. And, now we strongly believe that we made a right decision 8 years back to start using Zoho Creator.

"Lousy IT Support and Expensive in the Long Run"

What do you like best?

I do not like anything about Zoho Creator. It claims to be affordable but you have to pay for each user that needs to access the app you've created.

What do you dislike?

The tool has high learning curve and not intuitive to use; we encountered issues on access and features available to us from the get go. IT Support is not knowledgeable and takes a long time to respond and when they do respond, they do not respond fully to inquiries; you have to pay per additional user so the tool is not scalable; you purportedly need to have super admin access to have most features available which does not make sense from a development perspective.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I do not recommend Zoho Creator as a low code platform due to high learning curve, issues with access and feature availability from the get go, poor IT Support, expensive in the long run.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't see much benefit from this tool. It is very limiting in terms of features. They are not transparent in terms of what is included in the plan you purchased. I created a free trial and paid a premium plan and I can see so many features (which I think is a basic feature necessary to have to actually build something) not available to the premium plan.

"Frustrating"

What do you like best?

I like that with enough knowledge, you really can customize endlessly. You can find a way to create pretty much any feature that you need.

What do you dislike?

I DON'T like that when you need help, it's nearly impossible to get it. Searching their endless pages of support information is the worst, and if you start a chat or email, they will send you a totally irrelevant link, so you're just back to searching endless forums, support videos that are all out of date, and instructions to a system they don't even use anymore. The customer service is lacking to say the least, but luckily for them they have a really great product that isn't matched by any of their competitors. Pretty sure they are trying to annoy me until I just hire them to do it for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are confident in your ability to customize and code, this product is fine for you. If you need this product for something basic and don't require a lot of customization, just drag and drop fields, I would suggest you go to kintone, but Zoho would also be fine for you. If you want any human assistance, ever, skip Zoho.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Zoho is a great way to keep track of information and relate it to other information. Auto-populating, multi-directional relationships is not something that their competitors can provide as easily as Zoho can. That's our main use for it, and it is exactly what we needed. It is also used in my office as a way to track expiration dates and notify customers of their status in our system. It really is a great product, just awful customer service.

In the labor area many times the need arises to develop some simple application that will help us to simplify in the office, such is the case of this software that helps in the elaboration of simple programs offers a chat that provides all the necessary help for the creation of the same good either to be applied in mobile devices or for fixed equipment, it is not necessary to be an expert in programming for the design of simple applications.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning it is usually a bit complicated, especially because of the amount of information that is reflected in your task panel. You should take time to analyze each of its functions. It would be advisable to improve your design through easy-to-read links or tutorials, especially for beginners, the rest seems an excellent tool and then with the practice is known how easy is its use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zoho creator has made the activities in the office easier, thanks to the elaboration of personalized applications which can be easily obtained through its interface with an expert guide that will make the time easier, it is recommended for small companies being able to save money in the hiring of programmers for the design of software to our measure, here with little money can be captured what we want to achieve.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This application saves me money in the hiring of a programmer for the development of any application that you want to develop, for example in the office we wanted to have an application that would allow us to keep a customer database organized, here we could have a quick response how to carry it out, every time we have any questions we go to the chat, they have a quick personalized response which I found excellent.

"Build great business apps at a fraction of the cost of traditional platforms"

What do you like best?

Creator is easy enough to use for business people to build their own simple apps themselves. It is also powerful enough for professional developers to build complex business applications at a fraction of the cost of traditional platforms.

What do you dislike?

There are a few things that you just can't do in Creator. Usually these things can be solved with a bit of flexibility and creative problem-solving but users don't always get exactly what they had in mind.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create business apps for a wide variety of small and medium sized enterprises. Anything from a services scheduling app for an apartment rental agency to a complex back-end system for a marketplace site. Creator also gives tremendous power and flexibility to the already phenomenal Zoho CRM (Plus). Although CRM can do amazing things on its own, every organization has some specific needs that CRM doesn't solve out of the box. Creator can plug those gaps with simple but powerful integrations.

"Flexible Tool at a Reasonable Price"

What do you like best?

Zoho Creator is really flexible and easy to use. Basic forms can be created by users of many levels (doesn't take an IT person) and the ability to use Deluge, their own scripting language, really opens up the possibilities.

What do you dislike?

Things can get complicated (or impossible) when you get into more of a relational structure. While it's possible to build forms based on selections in related tables, I've run into problems when this more complex/involved. It's still a low-scale platform-as-a-service so the scalability is a bit limited.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Zoho has allowed us to create forms and store information related to vehicle mileage, sales opportunities, etc. Using the data saved from previous entries, we can then build calculations or populate future form entries, thus saving time or preventing inaccurate data entry.

Zoho Creator is a great tool that we used to create mobile applications in our organization. Zoho Creator was easy to install, customize and also to use. It had great features that enabled us to create the best mobile applications for our firm.

What do you dislike?

The only disappointing thing that I experienced about Zoho Creator was the customer care team, which was somehow inconvenient and slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can recommend this mobile application development tool to others due to its ease of use, efficiency and affordability. You can use it to build your favorite software that you can use for personal or business purposes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great mobile application development tool that made it easy for us to build our favorite applications. It is an essential tool that I can urge other to start using it.

"Easy to Share Information Amongst Team"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to share information across teammates easily for the purpose of getting social media advertisements live. This information includes, pricing, platform, targeting, urls, click and view tags, creative, and links to whatever else is needed. There's options to check pacing for our campaigns. It's great to be able to do this for multiple clients from one interface. If I was do this in Facebook or Twitter, I'd have to go to each account

What do you dislike?

There's room for improvement in the interface and there should be more flexibility when choosing viewing options. When I see the spreadsheet interface - I'd like the Search/Filters always accessible. From there, I'd like to be able to click on a row and have all the columns show up in a lightbox for easier viewing. Right now, I can access two interfaces for the same content - one with the easy access search bar and one with the better viewing of each row's content. I'd like both in one view.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

None in particular. My team uses it for information sharing view the spreadsheet like interface. I'd look into what other options are out there first.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team primarily uses it to pass along information. I.e. one team inputs the information they've received from the client and another uses it to create social media posts. Both teams can edit what's in the spreadsheet and add links to attachments such as an Excel doc or screenshot of a social media ad. Automated update emails can also be sent when specified edits are made. For example, once a team member has filled out all the required information, an email will get sent to the next person in the process.

"The #1 DIY application builder! Easy to use, enables anyone to create custom business applications "

What do you like best?

The possibility for anyone to create custom powerful applications for business even for free

App builder to help beginners create apps quickly

Fully cloud based

Native iOS Android and Windows apps - you create YOUR custom app and you have it on every device immediately

Great customer support (even for free users)

Over the top security

Easy integration with other services fromo Zoho and other famous brands

The app database is dynamically editable including renaming, adding and deleting tables and fields

Most of all If you need a simple app to manage your business you can do it yourself exactly the way you want it! And when your business grows: you hire an expert and expand your app possibilities!

What do you dislike?

Better programming documentation.

A) Because a time will come when you'll do need a really simple "deluge scrip" and you'll feel frustrated

B) Because the integration between Zoho products should have a step by step base doc. Let's say a wiki for dummies

Recommendations to others considering the product:

100% worth it!

Try it with a free plan and you'll never want anything else!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I own a limo service and my business it's on the go.

I needed to have apps that were shaped on my type of workflow. I didn't want to adapt my business on a standard platform.

My employees and I didn't waste our time on learning a system, the app does the job the way we need to.

Technology should be used to simplify my job not to standardize my business with the competition.

And this is what Zoho does for me and my business.

"Been using Zoho Creator to create Awesome applications for my clients"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Zoho creator is that it combines the elements of web design and coding in one without much or any knowledge of core coding. All the components exist in the package which are required for the user to build web application are packed into one powerful software. New developers could easily jump in to this application and learning curve is not steep.

What do you dislike?

Limited graphical user interface options

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend using the zoho creator as it is a perfect suit for complete business solutions. We use it from time management to inventory control.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Build complete taxing, inventory, ordering system with this applications. I have implemented complete inventory control with Zoho creator. We also have integrated Twilio, messaging APO for sending sms to our customers. Zoho makes it easy to add any other messaging APIs to its system. It also has recurring functions which makes our most of our work automated. The code which is written is also pretty solid. It doesnt have any security concerns as it restricts outsiders pretty effectively. We need it to operate in office environment only, this we can easily do with geotagging method zoho has.

"No Code Application Builder"

What do you like best?

It is easy to build an application from scratch or existing excel sheets. You just need to drag and drop the controls or import an excel file.

What do you dislike?

If you need customizations, you need to learn their script language, DELUGE script. Although it is a quite simple script language, it may be a bit difficult for nontechnical users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can be used for any business processes you implement in daily business to improve efficiency. Also, you can integrate with other applications services such as Salesforce to streamline the processes with their API.

"Custom app for our business"

What do you like best?

The thing I like most is the ability to interface with my Zoho CRM and the ability to create an app the is exactly a match for my business, instead of using pre made apps where they either lack the function that I need or one needs to create work arounds.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like is how easy Zoho makes it sound for us non coders to create apps. I find basic forms and reports very easy to create, but once I started to try to do more complex things with my data, I felt Deluge script is just like any other language I don't know.

I am sure people who develop database apps on a regular basis and know other programming languages probably see Deluge as an easy way to create what they want, but for me the small business owner who just needs an app that works, Deluge script can be a bit overwhelming.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have a clear idea of what you want to do. If you are not a programmer, you may need to hire a developer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have developed a course management app for our on-site English language classes given at our customers locations. We are able to track all teacher and student activity including setting up schedules, student lists, attendance reporting, cancellations and reschedules, and payroll for our instructors.

"Zoho Creator"

What do you like best?

Generally the ease of creating forms, web forms and tracking programs. I do not have experience in creating software forms or reports and Zoho Creator makes it easy to do. I have found the support to be outstanding as well.

What do you dislike?

This is more about me than Zoho (I think). I have created a student course roster for courses that we offer and now I need to use that information to print certificates and pre-made certification cards. I cannot choose the layout of the certification cards, but must make my form fit their layout. I have not been able to accomplish that task.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are keeping track of deployed defibrillators throughout the USA and any expiration dates so our customer does not have to worry about it.

We are also close to using it to help manage our first aid cabinet delivery and inspection service.

Would like to use it for class registrations and rosters, but need to work through the certification card issue first.

"Build Applications With A Point and Click "

What do you like best?

Compared to other App Creators like Microsoft PowerApps and Salesforce Lightning, Zoho Creator performs much better. I spend more time customizing than building the app I need, which is awesome and a great time-saver!

What do you dislike?

It would be great if there were more styling options that I could point and click to be implemented. So programming skills are still valuable to build a powerful application.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get a highly skilled developer to give you advise on basic information you need to know in order to build apps. While it seems confusing at first, once you understand the basic language of programming apps, you won't need to know a lot of the highly technical terms that goes with deep programming.

Hopefully soon "Building Apps Without Code" will be more common so that people at any size company can build applications they need within their Business Process. Something that smaller companies can improve efficiency with at a lower cost.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Zoho Creator I can build simple applications without wasting money on new SaaS or developers for simple project. It's really hard to get quality applications for simple apps that help me with contacts and sales managment. So I don't want to waste a lot of time finding a developer for a simple project I'm not willing to overpay for.

If you are considering Zoho Creator, you should also have a look to Zoho CRM and all their other cloud based applications. They are simple to configure, use and administer and can be fully integrated between them.

The ease of configuration, use and administration is unsurpassable in Zoho Creator and you will find out that deployment and training is also very easily done.

Also a plus is the fact that you can develop your products and distribute them from a single cloud based point without having to worry with hardware installation and configuration.

"Zoho Creator a good solution for workflow"

What do you like best?

It's all in one place, we use forms for workflow for our sales department, programming, digital and engineering team. It helps me as a department head to delegate work and i can keep people informed and keep tasks organized and even refer back to them thanks to the amount of records you're allowed to save.

What do you dislike?

Their support takes a while to get back you you. It helps to have some coding background, the UI can be hard to get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your research, know some HTML code or have someone on staff that does.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have an organized flowchart workflow of orders of things that need to be done, and they are completed and the person who submitted the form gets notified when the order is complete, cuts down on unnecessary emails and phone calls.

"Build a Saas software product for businesses and make recurring revenue... with a tenth of the devs"

What do you like best?

Zoho Creator has allowed me to setup a business building Saas solutions for companies.

It is easy to get started with but also allows people who want to take it to a living the chance to make very niche solutions that can be distributed world wide.

The rage at the moment is consumer apps but there is also A LOT OF MONEY in B2B solutions that are web and mobile based. Zoho Creator is better than any other tool in creating these sorts of solutions.

Easy drag and drop forms. Powerful reports and the ability to make magic happen with Deluge scripting that is a simple version of javascript. The automation of tasks and reporting workflow will streamline any business in days not months like many frameworks. The cost is cheap for having all the hosting and performance you need.

What do you dislike?

Some limits with how many deluge automations you can develop but you can simply buy more.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it and you will be surprised how quickly you can create a solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing all the workflow for a Scaffolding construction company. And selling it to multiple companies.

Recording timesheets in the field for Arborists using auto timesheet comments.

Doing pre configured checklist inspections for service and repair companies.

"Absolutely love the power and support community of Zoho Creator"

What do you like best?

Creator is extremely powerful. The ease and power of the deluge scripting puts the power of database design in the hands of anyone with moderate computer skills.

What do you dislike?

As with all things, your greatest strength is your greatest weakness. If you are not able to script what you want, you won't get what you want. Your ability to get the most out of Creator is directly tied to your ability to script what you want to accomplish.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a look at CRM as well as Creator and find a good consultant to help you with the initial set ups.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our HR procedures were a nightmare. We use Creator to automate and streamline our hiring process.

We have also used Creator to replace our PDF forms. We collect information on an ongoing basis in the field using the new Creator App. We are able to collect information and receive notification and custom reports instantly.

We also use Creator to send out SMS messages to our workforce.

"Perfect for small businesses that are ready to grow"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and deployment. Also, Creator integrates seamlessly with other Zoho apps! Instead of cobbling a system together from several different services from several vendors and then finding workarounds like Zapier to link them, we have one cohesive environment that scales and grows together, effortlessly.

What do you dislike?

While most of the basic functions are extremely easy and intuitive, once you begin attempting slightly more advanced features you will need to navigate the "Deluge" script builder takes a little understanding of programming and database access. But the documentation is very thorough and Zoho support is incredible, often walking me thru solutions during a live chat session.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

First identify the business goals, then build a test application on all platforms you are considering. When you reach a roadblock, contact support of each of the software vendors and compare the ease of their solution. Zoho support is hands down the best I've dealt with in over 20 years of developement.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the most effective solutions we've applied Creator to is a medium sized property management company. Creator has allowed us to make a mobile app for communicating guest requests, tracking maintenance issues and inventory for 30+ vacation rental properties in two languages.

We've also fully automated a Concierge business, taking provisioning orders from all over the world, tracking purchases, scheduling deliveries and managing customer requests in near real time.

The benefit to all businesses is clear and easily quantifiable in reduction of customer response time, reduction of time spent on each request, accuracy of orders and requests, ability to track and follow up on issues and accuracy of reporting to managers. No more lost phone calls, dropped post-it notes or misinterpreted communications!

"Easy tool to manoeuvre with in a programmers world"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and flexibility Deluge Scripting language provides. Its basically Built for non-programmers.

Zoho Creator equips non-programmers with tools for building applications. Just plan what you want your application to do, and then use the drag-and-drop interface to accomplish your goals.

What do you dislike?

When displaying charts on a html page you can not add criteria to a chart the same way you apply it to the view itself. params='Vendedor=<%=user.Nombre%>'&zc_Header=false so you end up adding custom filters to the chart and once open need to run the selected filter you need.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

try it free, nothing to lose. You will not want to go back.

Inventory Management

Production Schedules

"Zoho Creator review"

What do you like best?

The support. They have a chat function built into the app and are available to help get new users up and running. I have used it often multiple times per day and have found it an invaluable resource.

The documentation. It can take some work to really grasp what is being covered but the documentation is extensive.

The network of supporting consultants. There is a strong community of developers willing and able to help turn your idea into a functioning application.

The network of users. The Zoholics convention brings many of the users together and helps foster a community of people who help answer questions and provide feedback to Zoho.

Zoho's continued evolution. The product continues to evolve and develop new capabilities.

What do you dislike?

There are some functional limitations but that is to be expected as no software can do everything. Some of these limitations Zoho is actively working on improving. Most others can be resolved with workarounds.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Speak to people in the community about how Creator could be used to solve your problem.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are developing a "ERP-lite" application that ties into some of the existing Zoho applications. No off-the-shelf application provided the right balance of features we need while enabling us to eliminate things we don't. Creator enables us to build what we need and arrange the user interface to suit our use.

What do you like best?

Simple and easy to create workflow, accessible across browsers and mobile platforms at very affordable licensing model. Best suited for small and medium sized companies

"Good but clunky."

What do you like best?

Zoho App Creator allowed our startup to get started very quickly and it is what we continue to use in most of our crucial daily operations. It's a very clean and simple UI and it runs surprisingly well on mobile devices.

What do you dislike?

It's a little clunky. We have great hardware and internet connection and even then.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will need robust processes in place in addition to using Zoho. Lacks good automation.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Zoho for operations, order and account management, and as a database. As previously stated, how quickly we were able to get started with it was the best thing about it.

"ZOHO CREATOR - Simply sensational!"

What do you like best?

Versatility - You can deploy at a beginner level and expand through the elegant script builder and the onto free scripting. ZOHO Creator is ELEGANT refined, logical and sensible. DELUGE is a a very easy, yet powerful scripting language which opens incredible opportunities. I liked ADOBE FC and moved (as required) to JOTFORM as an immediate haven. This transition didn't cut it - ZOHO does!

The ability to send responding emails on field, if statements, is an absolute bonus. Workflow efficiencies are simply sensational. Also, customer issues have never been the fault of ZOHO server inaccessibility.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if there were a greater variety of scripting examples , beyond the explanation of syntax structures.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Seriously, get on board - great product - exceptional value!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online enrolment of students into a Senior College. Interviews, Course selections etc

Automated workflow efficiency has stunned everyone in our College. We simply do not use paper records anymore.

"Create Business Apps with Zoho Creator"

What do you like best?

Zoho creator is one the pretty cool and useful apps in the Zoho Software Suite. It gives you some formidable power and control to create business applications based on your own custom logic and use case. What makes Zoho Creator powerful is that it ships with some great ready built integrations to some of the most popular business applications like G Suite, Zapier , Twilio e.t.c

What do you dislike?

Zoho creator has quite a bit of a steep learning curve to pick-up. There is builder included but to really leverage the entire suite of features, you may need to brush up on your Deluge Script. This is a programming language created by Zoho.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zoho Creator helps you build real business apps even without any advanced coding skills. It performs great in providing a low-code platform to rapidly build apps for specific business use cases. It will definitely help you save some time and money in automating simple and repetitive business tasks.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Zoho creator helps bridge the gap between apps for simple solutions you can't find on the market or quite simple to build. We were specifically looking for a solution that integrates Zoho CRM and Twilio to make calls directly from the CRM. We were able to quickly build a simple but scalable solution using a pre-built extension in the Zoho Martketplace.

"Great product with everything at your fingertips"

What do you like best?

The ability to fully customize and allow a dummy proof database is the main power that is just not offered on prebuilt one company type fits all kind of application. You can learn everything and anything using the help. Drag and drop is great, don't have to program sizes, dimension, format of fields.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to not like that is important enough to mention. If there is something from time to time, always a way to figure out a solution for how to overcome it, just a matter of learning the product inside and out.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is easy in terms of drag and drop interface, simple report creation etc, but be ready to learn if you want to do anything on the programming end, where the power really is, but there are builders and built in functions to help you. I love tinkering and am very comfortable with its use now, even programming for another service company based on what I have learned. After that, you will be amazed at its magic. I was not a programmer before, didn't even like the one course I took in school, but this was something I forced myself to learn to put my time and money at it's best use. You do have to have an analytical mind and be persistent, but if that's who you are, you will have fun! Upgrades to my current system is my favourite thing to do and everyone really loves it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation of everything (including payroll), allowing people to only see what you want them to see or what is assigned to them. Searching and finding everything, organizing without the paperwork.

1. Its very simple to build Working product

2. Its easy to scale software database and workflow processes

3. Its reliable - 99,999% of the year - we haven't experienced any downtime

4. Low-coding makes people who understand design better than code MORE PRODUCTIVE

What do you dislike?

I can't find any reason not to like or have problems with the software. We havent had any issues. Just maybe sometimes support cannot understand our demands, but its more of a login problem. We invent some applications with this software and its hard for someone in other side of world to fully understand the concept that we trying to develop.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had made our organization more productive and simple. We did standardized hierarchy and processes. There is no other product so vast of posibilities to work with.

What do you like best?

2. Cloud based benefits on your finger tip with just one export

3. Easy and remote management of the application on both tablets and desktops

4. Online support with email and real time chat especially from unsupported countries

5. affordability as this is user based

What do you dislike?

1. support staff could be more professional

2. support staff must not assume and take for granted when helping a customer - remember your marketing says this is for non technical users

3. prices should be based on country of usage, i do realize this is cloud based though

4. provide a standard template for reporting issues to ensure all information is captured in the very first email or contact

5. ZOHO must invest in a knowledge base creation and maintenance with incentives for users to contribute to the KB.

"Zoho has been really good with a few minor things that might need to be changed."

What do you like best?

The application builder has the drag and drop functionality which is really good, mobile apps, APIs and good integration capability. They also have secure-access and multi language support. Also, there's no great way to make Zoho more customizable than it already is. You might also me able to find multiple helpful Google Chrome extensions. For instance, I found one that moves LinkedIn data to Zoho as leads, contacts, accounts and potentials. As the system is hosted in the cloud, it has been made easy for use even for the non-tech savvy users. The important benefit of this system is that it allows users to participate in a large community of independent developers which helps to gain invaluable expertise and the best part is you don't have to pay extra for the community access. It was my first attempt at using such type of software and I have loved it so far. The pricing is good too so that an organization of any size can afford it. So I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

What do you dislike?

I don't like their 15-day free trial to let users try out the software’s features because I feel it is not enough to get the feel of the software. It should be at least a month. Support team, as nice and helpful as they are, can be a little difficult to understand on the phone.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely need to give it a try as it has some really good features I mentioned earlier like drag & drop functionality, mobile apps, APIs and good integration capability, secure access and multi language support, regular backup and updates.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps eliminate all security and up-time worries, also makes sure my data is protected with the standard security precautions. At the same time, it automatically backs up and regularly update.

I like the way that the product balances the ease of using the drag and drop UI to create forms and views with the power of being able to use scripting in order to customize the workflow in the exact manner to meet the business need.

What do you dislike?

I have had occasional issues with response time in regard to support tickets. However, once an agent begins addressing my ticket, the services I receive is always very good.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Zoho Creator both as a tool for extending other Zoho products (in particular CRM) but also for stand-alone business applications that need form-driven front ends. Via the robust API offered, we are able to connect applications created in Zoho Creator with other systems across our business.

"Versatile Application Capable of Meeting Business Needs"

What do you like best?

I like the low cost and available support forum. This is a great application for a small business looking to start tracking data. I also love how it can easily integrate into Power BI.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the inconsistency in what code is acceptable. The language is not specifically Dax or another coding language. This can mean timely errors for novice coders. The biggest dislike is probably the lack of a test or sandbox version. Editing the live version sometimes results in outages, and it would be better if a sandbox version were made available.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zoho is great for small businesses. It handled our volume of data quite well. I would not be able to speak to it''s ability to handle data for larger companies.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the problems of tracking failures and identifying trends. For example, we are able to measure productivity in number of solved failure incidents on a week to week basis. Provides user level access which also comes in handy so each employee is limited to only what they need to see and do.
