User Reviews of Zoho People

I’m not an IT person but I can quite easily make whatever chart or graph that I want to help me understand or diagnose what’s going on.

It costs several hundred thousand dollars to have the wrong hire, or to have somebody leave us, so the idea is once you’re wearing the sweater, you’re on the team and we want to keep you here. As long as somebody has the will, then we will do what we can to try to make sure they’re successful.

Zoho has impacted every metric, everywhere. Employees learn faster and stay longer and leads are responding better to our sales approach. Sales have gone up 20% since starting to use Zoho but beyond that, employees learn faster and stay longer and leads are responding better to our sales approach.

Zoho has simplified so many of our company’s HR tasks. We couldn’t imagine going back to the way we used to manage our HR processes.

Zoho has helped us to gain incredible efficiency, transparency, and accuracy with many of our HR tasks. We love how easy the software is especially for time-keeping and leave requests. We also love how rapid the support is when we have questions.

Before we used Zoho People, the manual processes we had in place were considerably more time-consuming for both management and our employees. The self-service approach that Zoho makes possible has really alleviated a lot of stressors. The differences before we used Zoho and now makes clear how invaluable Zoho has become to our organization.

We have many favorite features including the Announcements module, which helps us to communicate important updates quickly to staff members all over the country. The Organization Chart, which updates in real-time, helps employees know exactly who is responsible for what in the company.
