Posted by Posted on by

Here’s the new addition to the growing Zoho portfolio: Accounting. We are extremely excited to announce the immediate availability of our online book keeping application,
Zoho Books.



If you follow Zoho closely, you probably saw this coming. ​Over the past 5 years, we added one application after the other to build a comprehensive suite of online collaboration, business and productivity applications. The idea was simple. We want to build a suite of applications for small & medium business, so they can run their entire business on Zoho. If you looked at our portfolio of products, there was one significant missing piece, accounting. Today, we can almost call our suite “complete”. 



What is Zoho Books?



Zoho Books
is an online accounting application that gives you complete visibility of your finances and helps you manage the money moving in and out of your business. Zoho Books can simply be defined as “accounting for rest of us”. You need not be an accountant to manage your business and make informed financial decisions. 




Here are some of the highlights of Zoho Books:


    Money In




    Get a clear picture of how much money your business is generating. Manage your customers and invoice them either online or by mail. Automate recurring invoices, payment reminders and payment thank-you notes. Get paid faster with our online payment gateways.


    Money Out




    Manage and control your expenses and cash outflow. Record invoices and commitments for purchases, services and even for reimbursable expenses like client travel. Keep track of the outstanding balances with each one of your vendors and pay on time.


    Banking and Credit Cards


    Record and monitor your bank and credit card transactions like deposits, fund transfers, checks, expenses, credits and refunds. Easily reconcile them with your bank and credit card statements.


    Take On the World




    Transact globally with our multi-currency capabilities. Record foreign currency invoices and expenses. Plus, Zoho Books goes with you wherever you go, so your business is always one click away from you, regardless where you are.

     


    Real-Time Collaboration




    Share -or delegate- the accounting duties to anyone in your organization, but set different permissions for you and your employees. Get professional help with your accounting by easily sharing your books with your accountant or financial adviser.



    Stay on Top of Your Business


    Glance through the dashboard to know what’s going well with your business and what’s not. Make smart and quick business decisions with the help of our insightful, available-anywhere reports.



The application


offers lot more. It also integrates with other Zoho Apps. For example, you can import your contacts from Zoho CRM, view data from various modules in Zoho Sheet etc. 
A comprehensive integration between CRM and other Zoho Apps is coming down the road. 


In particular, Zoho Invoice customers will be able to seamlessly migrate from Zoho Invoice to Zoho Books – and go beyond invoicing to full-blown accounting without having to start over.





This launch is not just for Zoho users. 


Zoho Books is also immediately available for Google Apps users through the

Google Apps Marketplace
.





Pricing



Zoho Books is priced at $24/month (or $240/year with a 2 month discount). This includes access for 2 users. If you’d like to provide access for additional users, it’ll be an additional $5/user/month. 


We have been working very hard on this app for a while now and we are extremely excited to unveil this today. We hope you’ll like the app and we can’t wait to hear your feedback.

New in Zoho Mail : Drag & Drop Attachments, Improved CRM Integration & More

Posted by Posted on by

Integrations and improvements among Zoho Apps continue to pick up steam. Our latest update in Zoho Mail brings in some really neat features many of you will love. Here we go.

Drag & Drop Attachments & More

Attaching files while composing an email just got easier. While attaching files, just drag and drop your files on to the compose window to attach files. You can drag multiple files at once. There are no plugins needed for this feature to work. It uses HTML5. This means, the feature will work in browsers that support HTML5 like Firefox 3.6+ and Chrome 6+. 

If you still prefer attaching files using the dialog, we enabled the option to select multiple files using the CTRL option (or CMD option on Mac). Again, this feature works on Firefox 3.6+ and Chrome 6+.

We previously added an option to attach files directly from Zoho Docs or Google Docs. For Zoho Docs, you only had the option to attach the files you created. We now added an additional option to even attach files that have been shared to you. 

Add Leads & Events to Zoho CRM

In Zoho Mail, we have had the option to add a contact to Zoho CRM with a single click. We now added an option to add the sender of an email as a Lead to the CRM system. To do this, open the email and choose Add to > CRM > Leads. 

You can also add an Event to Zoho CRM right from the email.

Calendar Preview

We typically receive calendar invites as ICS attachments. For such emails, we now added the option to preview the ICS file before adding it to your calendar. If everything looks right, use the ‘Add Event’ option add the event to Zoho Calendar.

Sorting Emails by Size

Unlike many webmail clients, we offer several options to sort your emails – like sorting by Date, subject, sender etc. Now we added a new option – sort by size. This will sort all your emails based on the size of your email (attachments included). If you want to delete those unwanted emails that take up your Inbox, now you can do this easily.  

These are some of the key highlights in our latest update. As always, we will keep improving the application based on your feedback. So keep your feedback coming.
