When we posted our last blog, we left you with the promise that we would add more apps to our existing line-up of integrations. Now, we are back with not one but 2000+ ways to connect Bigin with your favorite business applications. Yes, we are excited to announce that Bigin is now fully integrated with Zapier, the leading integration platform that lets you connect your apps and automate your workflows. Thanks to the growing popularity of the integration, we are now out of the beta phase and are ready to fully integrate with the Zapier platform to help users do more with less work.
Zapier is all about making automation easier and it strives to keep its users productive so that they don't have to spend their valuable time connecting different apps to work together. It eliminates double entries from your work and automates the regular day-to-day tasks that you often find yourself spending the most time on.
How does the integration work?
While a CRM system is at the core of your day-to-day customer-centric operations, you still need to connect it with other apps that are part of your business ecosystem. The secret to building better customer relationships is having an integrated platform that maps the end-to-end journey of a customer so that it becomes easier for the stakeholders to track and manage customer activities at every step of the customer journey.
From capturing incoming leads from multiple channels to automatically alerting your team of deal closures, every action needs to be tied together for customer-facing teams to provide a coherent experience to their customers. That's where an integration platform like Zapier can help by effortlessly combining the CRM system with other third-party apps without any coding or API integration involved. This also means that customer-facing teams can build their own processes much faster and no longer have to wait for developer help to automate some of their core activities.
