Integrate Zoho Books with Zoho Analytics

Zoho Analytics is business intelligence and reporting software that lets you create visually appealing and insightful reports. Though the Reports module in Zoho Books contains a multitude of reports, each business has different needs and it might require them to generate custom reports. Which is exactly why Zoho Books integrates with Zoho Analytics.

Benefits of the Integration

This integration makes your data from Zoho Books available in Zoho Analytics, with which, you can create custom reports or choose from Zoho Analytics’ 75+ financial reports. Reports and dashboards that you create in Zoho Analytics can also be embedded in your own website or application. The integration can prove extremely useful if you want to create reports from multiple sources or even multiple organizations from Zoho Books itself.

Note: When you set up the integration, Zoho Analytics will provide you with a free 15-day trial. However, once the trial ends, you will no longer be able to use Zoho Analytics and will have to upgrade to one of their plans that suit your needs.
