Platforms

You can access ZOHO CRM by almost all mainstream browsers without any trouble.

To use this service in mobile you have to pay extra charge and have it enabled separately. You can even access ZOHO CRM from the mobile browser if your mobile has the ability to run flash. And that excludes the iOS devices from the usage list without app, because iOS does not support flash. And unfortunately, there’s no app for the Windows Phone devices, yet.

Comparison

Unless your company is a very large one, ZOHO CRM will just serve all your purpose. Though it might not be a proper choice for the multi-national organizations as it doesn’t offer a currency converter, but if you don’t mind having a converter then it will be no problem.

And if you use forecast software, then you can merge these two software. If the other software has the statistical forecast functionality then this won’t be lacking any more.

Pricing and License

You can use the software for free for up to 3 users. But you get a very limited usage, only the sales automation, cases, resolution, reports etc. The limit to upload records is 100,000 and 1000 records per batch. The storage you get is also insufficient, only 100 MB.

And the upgrades bring more to it. You can upgrade to professional edition for 12$ per month, and enterprise edition by spending 25$ per month; you get advanced features.

Bottom Line

An excellent package – enough said.
