Reconciliation gets easy as Stripe goes ‘Intrinsic’ with Zoho Books

Posted by Posted on by

The last few years, we have been on an integration spree; we’ve integrated with Stripe, Paypal, BrainTree and others in the past. Integrating payment gateways with your accounting software is absolutely essential for you to track payments that have been made through online invoices.

While it’s easy to get paid instantaneously, the reconciliation of (non-Zoho Books) deposits and refunds can be a nightmare! And the fact that the money isn’t immediately deposited to your bank account can give you a convoluted picture of your financials.

 Would it not be wonderful if the implementation between a payment processor and an accounting software were such that you can monitor deposits and refunds, get a clear picture of the processing fees, how much the gateway owes you and above all, how much actual money you’ve got – all at one place!

Jinx! That’s exactly what we thought! And that’s exactly what we’ve done.

Here we will leap into the turbulent waters of long and complicated job applications, and pore over characteristics of candidate experiences so awful that people spread the word like tent-revival evangelists.

Don’t worry, we won’t stay here long. No, our final destination is far from this land.

Our purpose here is simple. In order to overhaul the way candidates interact with your company, you must first understand what a great candidate experience is NOT.

After we released Zoho Social last month, I’ve been talking to a lot of customers, replying to love and hate emails, helping them set up their accounts and what not. It’s fun helping small businesses get better at social media marketing!

Why you should get serious about social media marketing

Last weekend, I was looking forward to meeting someone at my favorite cafe. No, this wasn’t about work. It was about food! A young entrepreneur who started a food-delivery business right after he graduated got in touch with me over Twitter. He said he was meeting some foodies in the city over the last couple of weeks and wanted to meet me to talk about my favorite food joints in the city. Well, that tells you a thing or two about me. 😉

Your presentations don’t happen in a vacuum. Whether it’s an online meeting, a customer demo or sales presentation, you may need to switch presenters. Good news! The Zoho Meeting Team has revamped the Change Presenter feature to make it easier for you and your audience.

‘Share My Screen’ option for Participants

Previously, only the Presenter of the meeting can change the presenter role to a Participant. To make this easier, we have introduced a ‘Share My Screen’ option to let an attendee request to share his or her screen when desired. A light-weight application will be downloaded, and the Participant can share the screen once the Presenter approves the request. Further, to make it smoother, we have also introduced an easy launching set up in Google Chrome browser on Windows OS.
