    "Beware before you build!"

    April 12, 2014  |   By seandfrank

    Version: Zoho Creator

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - Cost effective
    - Dynamic customization

    Cons

    - Customer services sucks
    - Might cripple your company operations with no solution
    - You will eventually need to leave Zoho if your company continues to grow
    - Can't use Javascript or customize themes

    (use Zurmo instead)

    Summary

    Building an application takes a tremendous amount of time to perfect and grow. Starting on the right application that will allow long-term development is critical. For a DIY database, Zoho Creator has features that I could not find with another option. Their customer service though, will have you asking for MUCH more. Several times I dealt with significant problems that left our organization crippled and got ZERO response or consideration from customer service. Every time the problem was with their servers or software. I could go WEEKS struggling with an issue and get no help from customer service. When your organization's core application is down, you do not want to be with Zoho Creator. After struggling with issues and no help from Zoho, I realized that my growing company had to leave Zoho Creator.

    I found an open-source CRM called Zurmo. You NEED to check Zurmo as an option. Being open source, you can install it, modify the source code and it's free! They also have a paid version where they provide support and premium options. We have spent the last couple months building our new application in Zurmo and we love it. Overall, it's taking much less time than starting in Zoho Creator. Best of all, we aren't at someone else's mercy if the application has an issue. We can fix everything we want and host our own database. Although it takes a little more know-how to start on Zurmo, it was probably just as easy as Zoho, because accomplishing some things in Zoho was overcomplicated.

    "Easy to use and very professional!"

    October 6, 2011  |   By swaiinnyy

    Version: Zoho Creator

    Pros

    Free for databases with 1000 or less entries which suits me for now. If I exceed this amount I will have to pay a fee which I am more than happy to do with the success of having an online database!

    Cons

    Haven't found anything I dislike as of yet. There support staff are very helpful and fast to respond.

    Summary

    If you are looking for an online database I strongly reccommend Zoho Creator!
