Sunny Land Tours Challenge
With the growing business it was a big challenge to manage multiple operations and technology projects, the existing task management tool was designed for the new age. Keeping track of tasks assigned and its progress was a big challenge before we implemented Zoho Projects. When we evaluated multiple solutions we found Zoho Projects the best fit as we got everything we were looking for at an affordable price.
Zoho Solution and Impact
Currently we have around 14 users and 2-5 projects. Since we started using Zoho we have better visibility of tasks, timelines, projects and it is serving the purpose we have implemented it for.
