Zoho CRM - what is it?
Zoho CRM is a cloud-based business management platform aimed at businesses of all sizes. It provides sales and marketing automation tools with help desk, analytics, and customer support capabilities.
Zoho CRM helps users respond to customers across channels and in real time. Zia, Zoho CRM's AI-powered sales assistant, can predict the right time to contact customers. It scans emails for urgency and can display relevant statistics or documents when searching.
Users can integrate with G Suite, WordPress, MailChimp, Evernote, Unbounce, and other third-party systems. Zoho CRM's software development kits provide tools to create custom features that can be added to the CRM. Zoho CRM is available as a monthly or annual subscription, and support is extended via phone, email, documentation, and other online efforts.
How does Zoho CRM works with Chat Agents
Upon completion of a chat on your site, a new chat lead is added by our Chat Agents with all contact information, a brief chat summary, and the chat transcript.
With this Zoho CRM - Chat Agents integration, these lead details are automatically added as a new contact in your Zoho CRM account and notes are created for the summary and chat transcript.
When a chat visitor returns to your site and provides more information, a new chat summary is added along with the new chat transcript from Chat Agents. These lead details are also automatically updated in Zoho CRM.
