I'm self-employed and I run a design, printing, and marketing business. I wear all the hats when it comes to my business, so I need tools that help me automate and track everything that goes on day-to-day. I have been looking for a simple CRM for the last 3 years. During that time, all I found were apps with way too many features that came with a hefty price tag. When I started using Bigin, I loved how easy it was to use, and it had a clean and organized interface. The ability to sync my other apps with it using Zoho Flow was a big plus. One of the best things is they made it affordable. I look forward to being seeing how Bigin evolves and helps me run my business better.

Bigin is easy to use for a growing organisation like Ammacus. The platform is very intuitive and saves time on double entering information and has saved us many hours in lost productivity. As an early adopter of Bigin, we look forward to continued new applications & developments to make the platform even better than it is today. In addition, we have received fantastic client support when it was required.

Bigin is exactly what we needed at our growing real estate company. We had looked into many CRM services but all of them were either too costly with features we didn’t yet need; too complicated to set up; or too simplistic. Zoho Bigin has been amazing. I watched one instruction video from the YouTube channel and I was ready to set up. It’s so simple to navigate that we were up and running on day 2. Customer support has also been great. I’ve received quick responses to all my queries. Just stellar all the way.

I am a huge fan of Bigin. I have literally spent years trying to find a solution like this so that I could track all of my clients. I have two different business entities with differing needs for each. This has made it challenging. I tried different apps that are made for larger businesses and they were not as user friendly as Bigin. Plus, the costs were too high for me. I recommend Bigin to everyone I know. I have been a customer since October of 2020 and I could not be happier with this application.

I have been using Bigin since almost it was launched and I must say this is one of the most simple yet very effective tools for entrepreneurs. The Deals module helps me stay on top of my plans and closures. The leads are easy to add, track and follow-up, due to which I feel much in control of my marketing process. Assigning tasks and calls have taken my follow-ups to the next level. I love Bigin's web, Mac and iOS interfaces and I find them very intuitive and easy to use. Thank you Zoho for creating this CRM and making my life so simple.
