What is Zoho Projects?

Zoho Projects aims to give you “the ultimate experience in project management.” To project leaders, that means meeting their targets within the time limit and budget set. The software solution is designed to streamline the project management process from the initial to the closing phase, using its completely automated and highly customizable features.

For example, the milestone mapping tool will make project planning and coordination with your team members less complicated. The software is also equipped with tools and apps that allow you to track any project and task progress and changes made.

It is also easy to track the productivity of your staff in real-time, thereby giving you accurate statistics about how much time a given task is spent on. With the same reporting capabilities, you will know how much paid hours the team has made, and whether you are working under your timeline. Information sharing and issue-monitoring is also part of the process and Zoho Projects cover these areas as well.

Overview of Zoho Projects Benefits

Zoho Projects streamlines your project workflows with automation and customization, as well as integration with a wide array of productivity apps. Here are the myriad benefits to be had with the software:

Project Planning

With Zoho Projects, you can plan your project down to minute details by mapping every milestone to achieve until the project is completed. Under each milestone, you can create tasks and sub tasks, as well as designate each to your team members.

Project Collaboration

Collaborate with your team members through multiple channels, such as the chat, feeds, activity stream, forum, and Wiki. With different ways to communicate with your team, you can ensure that everyone is aware of what is going on. These channels also allow everyone in the team to express their thoughts and ideas relevant to the project where everyone can see them.

Team Productivity

Zoho Projects use tools like time sheets, resource utilization chart, and Global Timers to help you gauge your team members’ productive hours no matter where they are. Recorded billable and non billable hours are shared seamlessly with the integrated invoice software to ensure that billing and invoicing will be accurate and hassle-free.

Project Insights

Charts and reports are automatically generated to give you in-depth details of how your project is progressing, if there are issues, etc. You also have a dashboard where you can get a quick lookup of the project KPIs. To accomplish these tasks, Zoho Projects equip you with tools like Gantt and resource utilization charts, as well as Zoho Analytics.

Knowledge Sharing

Create a page where you can save documents and other necessary information for your team members to access when necessary.


Zoho Projects allows you and your team to customize certain processes according to the type of the project, or based on the team’s unique workflows and preferences.
