Bigin add-on for Gmail

Bigin add-on for Gmail

Email is one of the primary means of communication for all businesses. These interactions can be with a customer or with a prospect who is interested in your business or service. 
 
So, you use Gmail to manage these interactions and Bigin has all the information about your Contacts and the Companies to which they belong. Here, two platforms are involved in running your business. Gmail and Bigin.
 
How can they be bridged together?
