Overview

Comprehensive customization options give Zoho an edge over other CRM systems. Zoho subscribers get the freedom to set up the system the way they want. The platform also integrates with thousands of third-party apps and software. In addition to being a flexible solution, Zoho CRM is affordable and includes a free version for up to three users.
SAP CRM is an excellent choice for businesses already using the SAP software ecosystem. It connects effortlessly to other SAP suites, such as finance and back-end operations. It’s a comprehensive solution for sales, marketing, and customer service departments. It also provides some of the most advanced data analytics on the market. However, it’s difficult to integrate SAP with third-party tools. CRM is also too large and expensive for most small businesses and startups.

Ease of use

Zoho CRM's interface looks a little dated, but in terms of functionality, the system has everything you need to manage your sales, marketing, and service departments. A horizontal dashboard contains tabs for sales, leads, accounts, contacts, reports, and more. These settings can be customized to your preferences. You also have a homepage displaying open tasks, today's leads, and meetings. This can also be personalized, so the information you use most is front-and-center. And unlike many CRM systems, you don't have to worry about storage capacity. You get up to 100,000 contacts, so you can be sure every customer is served.
The SAP CRM interface is configured based on roles, similar to Salesforce. In other words, your customer service team will see a different screen than a sales rep. This makes for a simple and uncluttered user experience. Further customization can be made based on personal preferences, such as the layout. Slow performance is a common complaint among SAP CRM users. It also lacks the modern and responsive interface common to cloud-based software.

Support

Zoho provides standard support tools, including an online knowledge base, community forums, customer portal, and email support. Depending on your subscription package, you may receive remote assistance, live chat, and phone support five days per week. The more advanced your subscription, the faster the response time. Those customers with a yearly subscription for 25+ users may subscribe for enterprise support, which will cost 25% of the annual fee. It includes comprehensive technical assistance and a one-hour response time. You will also have early access to new features and advice on improving your Zoho experience.
SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) is a comprehensive solution for managing your customer relationships.

SAP CRM is part of SAP Business Suite. The SAP CRM documentation offers a comprehensive description of the functional scope of SAP CRM and highlights the relationship between the application and the underlying technologies.
