Zoho Announces the All-New Smart Accounting Software for Growing Businesses

Zoho today announced a complete refresh of Zoho Books, its online accounting software. The latest Zoho Books packs over 100 new features along with a faster and more intuitive interface, creating a delightful experience for small business owners as they manage their money.

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

The All-New Zoho Books

The all-new Zoho Books has been redesigned to improve the user experience and enhance performance. Business owners can get their accounting tasks done quickly, so they can focus on their business growth. The powerful features in the new Zoho Books are aimed at increasing efficiency and boosting collaboration between small business owners and their customers.

The key highlights of the new version of Zoho Books include:

  • A completely redesigned and beautiful interface with improved workflows. Powerful analytics are delivered in the dashboard which will answer key questions regarding the business performance and cash flow. The banking module in Zoho Books has been transformed, and it now intuitively identifies uncategorized transactions fetched from bank feeds and matches them with existing transactions in Zoho Books. Business owners who bill their time to clients will find it easier to track time with the new calendar and weekly timesheet views. Fresh invoice templates have been added which can be customized, too.
  • New IOS, Android and Windows apps have been launched for Zoho Books. The mobile apps will help business owners stay connected and run their business on the go. Users can track expenses, send quotes and invoices, and log time for projects right from their mobile device. Also, the Zoho Card Scanner mobile application can now scan business cards to Contacts in Zoho Books.
  • Zoho Books is built on an open platform, and the robust RESTful APIs are open to third-party applications to integrate with the accounting software. The open platform provides an opportunity for app developers across the world to create applications that cater to small business needs. Recent integrations with Track1099.com and Tax1099.com will help reduce year-end compliance burden for business owners.
  • By giving clients access to the client portal, business owners can completely eliminate the need for unnecessary file transfer or time-consuming approvals. Clients can approve quotes, view recent transactions, check payment history and make an online payment from within the portal itself.

In addition to these highlights, the latest release of Zoho Books packs over 100 new features.

The new version of Zoho Books is available immediately. Users can sign up for a free 30-day trial to evaluate the software for their accounting needs.
