A peek into Mistley Manor's journey to the cloud, powered by Zoho Creator

Like many family-run businesses dating back to the 1930s, Mistley Manor was still using traditional methods, like paperwork, in some areas of their day-to-day operations. Once the company started expanding its workforce and care homes, paper was no longer a viable option.

This is when Michael started exploring different software options to replace their existing methods. After trials with several ready-to-use software solutions, he stumbled upon a relatively new technology called low-code. Once the idea of customization and flexibility caught his attention, Zoho Creator became his first and last choice.

With Zoho Creator, their data has moved onto the cloud. It can be retrieved with ease and helps Mistley Manor in streamlining their processes. Michael builds apps on his own, and now seven different apps are used to run their care homes—resident management, HR, restaurant management, and apps for the different care departments.
