Telephony in Bigin

Telephony in Bigin

On a typical day, a salesperson will make a lot of calls to prospective customers, trying to sell them products. They also receive support calls from their customers.

A salesperson who hasn't integrated their phone with Bigin will have to call each prospective customer manually and then switch to Bigin to get the necessary information about them. Then, once the call is over, they will have to manually update their details in Bigin.
 
What if we could bring the phone functionality into Bigin?
The salesperson can make a call from Bigin, with all the prospect's details right in front of them, and have the call log added to the record automatically. Bigin offers two options:
  1. Set up Zoho's built-in PhoneBridge
  2. Integrate with a PBX service from Marketplace

Bigin's built-in telephony feature is available in the following countries:

Barbados

Australia

Benin

Cayman Islands

Belgium
