Zoho People Overview

Zoho people is a HR software solution designed to take care of all employee related processes en route. Be it from hiring, onboarding, attendance, time tracking, appraisal management to documentation, it’s got it all covered. Transport, training, timesheets, performance & leave are other categories addressed.

• Streamline recruitment with fidelity candidate pools
• Consolidate headcount data & manage leave applications
• Simplify employee feedback
• Answer any queries that anyone may have
• Automate form field & task completion, custom application building, configure workflows & invest time efficiently
• Customised data capture for updated records

With corporate LMS solutions, analytics & database handling, there’s much to gain by using Zoho people. Even fees, reimbursements, payroll, invoicing & all things financially related are taken care of. However, there are setbacks encountered with using this app:

• Limitations with the mobile interface, restricting feature accessibility & operability
• Poor customer service in case of any issues
• Technical dysfunction with attachments & integrations

So there you have it. A potentially powerful solution for all your HR needs which ticks all the boxes: in theory. Practically however, it does suffer from perhaps some underdeveloped functionality which needs addressing. If you’re one who’s not reliant on mobile devices, doesn’t mind a few bugs here & there, then perhaps this is for you. Just don’t expect a timely response from their support though!
