Register now

Zoho has refreshed its Zoho Books online accounting software for small businesses, with a new user interface and more than 100 new features, along with new mobile apps for Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows devices.

The redesigned Zoho Books software includes analytics features that are available through an online dashboard to answer key questions about business performance and cash flow. The banking module now automatically identifies uncategorized transactions from bank feeds and matches them with existing transactions in Zoho Books. New calendar and weekly timesheet views make it easier to bill time to clients. New customizable invoice templates have also been added to the system.

Zoho is also introducing new iOS, Android and Windows mobile apps for Zoho Books to help business owners stay connected and run their businesses remotely. Users can track expenses, send quotes and invoices, and log time for projects from their mobile devices. In addition, a Zoho Card Scanner mobile application can now scan business cards to create contacts within Zoho Books.

The software’s application programming interface is also open to third-party developers to integrate their apps with Zoho Books. Recent integrations include Track1099.com and Tax1099.com to reduce year-end compliance work for business owners.

“We have packed Zoho Books with over 100 new features and opened up the APIs, allowing third-parties to integrate with Zoho Books,” said Zoho evangelist Raju Vegesna in a statement. “The availability of mobile apps on three platforms is a result of our continued investment in mobile.”

Through a client portal, business owners can communicate with their clients and customers. Users can approve quotes, view recent transactions, check the payment history and make an online payment from within the portal.
