Integrate with Office 365

Integrate with Office 365

Integrating your Office 365 and Bigin accounts allows you to synchronize contacts and events from Bigin to Office 365 and Vice Versa. This ensures that whenever a Contact or an Event is added in one account, it will be updated in the other automatically. 

For Example, Zylker - restaurant caters home delivery and also accepts bulk orders for various events such as Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries, etc. They use a suite of apps in Office 365 such as Outlook, Invoicing, Booking, and Onedrive. The emails they receive from the prospects are added as contacts and meeting with their clients are added as events in Office 365. 

They also use Bigin to effectively manage the business deals that they have with their customers. Since Bigin and Office 365 are vital for their business, bridging the apps together will be effective in: 
  1. Maintaining a unified list of contacts.
  2. Staying on top of all the events that are created in Bigin and Office 365 so that nothing is missed. 
Once you integrate your Microsoft Office 365 account, Bigin Calendar folder will be added to the Microsoft Office 365 Calendar. Likewise, Bigin Contacts folder will be added to Microsoft Office 365 People. All the calendar events and contacts from Bigin will be available in these folders.
