4 out of 5.0, Reviewed Aug 29, 2016
Zoho was easy to implement, low cost, allowed you to get started establishing projects immediately. The product offered an interface for importing MS Project plans that we found had to be very carefully defined before importing. We eventually deleted the imported plan and entered the milestones and tasks manually. Users were easily setup and zoho sent out an invitation for each user to log in. The project owner originally set up the project and this could not be transferred. Another level can be setup for creating, deleting and changing tasks and milestones. The chat was a very good feature and users could attach any type of file. We hoped it would be a central location for running a major project but found the users continued to use email.
Continue to monitor the web Collaboration tools. The market continues to develop.
Ease of getting started "out-of-the-box"
MS Project support
Had a solid solution for importing MS Project schedules and resource assignments, including task dependencies.
Zoho is still improving. We looked at 5 or 6 other collaboration tools and faced the same issue. Zoho was more feature rich and we expect it will continue to improve.
Good core features but the MS Project interface would make the process easier for the project manager.
We did not buy a service and support contract above and beyond the licensing. We had a few questions answered and initial one-hour training
Easy to get started. Interface to MS Project was limited.
