What AccountingWEB says

Zoho has been a bit-part player in the UK marketplace for more than five years, but has started to build up its presence in recent months. Where the big accounting engines rely on third party app ecosystems to cover non-accounting tasks, Zoho takes a more integrated approach, with its own companion programs for stock, HR and customer relationship management (CRM).

It’s an appealing offer for businesses that want the convenience of online applications, without all the associated admin and configuration work to hook up other systems. During 2019 the challenge for Zoho will be to expand its foothold in the narrow spaces left alongside the face-to-face showdown between QuickBooks and Xero.
