Free Plan Options

Zoho People has a free plan option for up to five users. While the free plan has limited features, it does allow potential clients a commitment-free option to interact with the software. It’s a great way to test out the functionality of the program.  

Multiple Languages

Mobile App

Zoho People’s mobile app allows employees to access the employee directory, clock-in and clock-out of work, and more. The app is available for Apple and Android phones.


The Bad

  • Limited Payroll Services

Limited Payroll Services

Zoho People only offers one product package that includes payroll service, People Plus.

However, Zoho Corporation’s payroll software is not available in every state. If you are interested in utilizing Zoho Payroll, you will need to contact a representative to ensure it's available in your location.

Zoho People’s software does integrate with most payroll software options, but you will have to pay for both HR and payroll software. 


The Bottom Line

Zoho People is a great fit for many businesses. The software offers freedom in terms of employee participation in the program. The mobile app allows employees the freedom to access important information no matter where they work.

If your company is interested in purchasing Zoho People, we recommend trying the free plan and/or contacting a company representative for a demo of the software.

Not a fan of this service. Despite the fact that it gets the job done, the whole procedures and manipulations one has to take in order to have the tasks done is incredibly. The service is not synchronized on the inside.

Pros: none, really. I'd rather use google sheets to manage my team. Cons: the latest version is an insult to UX. Lots of glitches when linking from their automated emails, frequently used forms are hidden and it's a pain to go through their multiple menus to find what you're looking for. It's supposed to make your life easier, but it's an additional stress.
