Why integrate with Zoho Books?

The way it works

Zoho Books and Zoho Inventory have the same core. Simply put, it’s like looking at two different sections of a single ship, each designed to accomplish its specialised role for carrying the same cargo. Hence when you create an orgnization in one of these apps, you will be able to tap into it by simply joining that organization into the other app.
