A dynamic marketing company aimed to enhance its operational efficiency through an integrated CRM system. The goal was to establish a comprehensive solution that seamlessly connected their website, Zoho Books, Zoho CRM, Zoho Bookings, and Zoho Projects, facilitating smoother workflow and better customer management.
The marketing company encountered several challenges:
- Difficulty in synchronizing new product launches, customer acquisitions, and orders between their website and CRM system.
- Inefficient process in managing customer data, orders, and corresponding invoicing.
- Lack of a unified platform for team collaboration and real-time updates on orders and projects.
Our customized Zoho CRM solution encompassed:
- Integration of Website and Zoho Applications: We implemented custom functions with API endpoints to capture new webhooks from their website for new products, customers, and orders.
- Automated Customer and Order Processing: Whenever a new customer was registered, they were automatically added to the CRM’s contact module, with a new deal record. This record was linked to a corresponding Zoho project and an invoice in Zoho Books, already marked as paid.
- Custom CRM Experience: We utilized Zoho CRM features like Wizard and Canvas to create a highly customized user interface and experience.
- Zoho Cliq for Collaboration: Integration with Zoho Cliq was established to facilitate team collaboration and provide instant notifications for new orders.
The implementation process involved:
- Thorough analysis and understanding of the company’s workflow and requirements.
- Custom coding and API integration for real-time data synchronization across platforms.
- Tailoring the CRM interface with Wizard and Canvas for an intuitive user experience.
- Training and support for staff to adapt to the new integrated system.
Post-implementation, the marketing company experienced:
- Streamlined process for tracking new products, customers, and orders.
- Efficient management of customer information, deals, and invoicing.
- Enhanced team collaboration and communication through Zoho Cliq.
- Significant improvement in operational efficiency and customer service.
This project demonstrated our expertise in customizing and integrating Zoho CRM to cater to the specific needs of a marketing company. The result was a more efficient, cohesive, and user-friendly system that significantly boosted the company’s operational capabilities.
