Kudos for Zoho Reports
Zoho Reports offers a rich feature set that serves the needs of power users comfortable with creating their own reports with SQL queries as well as novice users who are often less technical and more comfortable with a spreadsheet-style interface. Meanwhile, Zoho Reports carries on the Zoho tradition of application affordability with a free version in addition to paid plans starting at $15 per month. Companies enjoying the Zoho Reports advantage include:
-- Eurail.Com – Based in the Netherlands with fulfillment centers operating from the USA and the UK, Eurail.Com sells Eurail train passes online to travelers from all over the world. The company uses Zoho Reports to provide quick, easy and centralized data access for its sales and marketing team; to improve its sales forecasts and reporting accuracy; and to increase employee productivity by reducing manual tasks. “We now have very detailed insight into our daily sales figures without any manual operations,” said Jeroen de Bruin, marketing and sales manager for Eurail.Com.
-- Impact Solutions – This company helps teachers spend more time inspiring students and less time keeping records. The flagship product, Impact, uses Zoho Reports to give teachers, administrators and staff real-time access to accurate and current information about student performance, attendance and character. And the Zoho Reports price structure makes Impact affordable for small schools as well as large, “In some ways, the schools wouldn't be doing this tracking and analysis if not for Zoho Reports. It lets us deliver a system that’s powerful yet simple and cost effective,” said Jesse Olsen, founder of Impact Solutions.
-- Interchem (Chemist Wholesale) Limited – A pharmaceutical wholesaler, Interchem Limited uses Zoho Reports to compare prices for both vendor procurement and retail sales. The company automatically uploads data from Microsoft SQL Server into Zoho Reports on an hourly basis to make decisions in near real time, with the option of using the Zoho Reports API for real-time data analysis. “Zoho Reports has helped our business reach the next level. It's so easy to use – no coding required – but is nevertheless more powerful than many other products on the market. I would recommend it to anyone looking to procure a business intelligence solution on a shoestring budget,” said Shaheed Fazal, director at Interchem (Chemist Wholesale) Limited.
-- CH2M HILL – A global full-service engineering, procurement, construction and operations firm, CH2M HILL uses Zoho Reports to track project data and reports. The Zoho solution provides a reporting database in which everyone can access current information and reports, but only one person controls them. “Previously, we had people tracking data and reports with Excel spreadsheets and passing them around, and we lost control of data and reporting. Now, we are again using the data and reports with confidence,” said John Kubenka, CMMS administrator for CH2M HILL.
