Integrating with Zoho Meeting

Integrating with Zoho Meeting

When it comes to sales, it involves multiple meetings with the contacts say for a demo, negotiation or a discussion. It involves identifying a suitable time, the location, and booking a conference room. This is not always easy and a lot of time is wasted in setting up a meeting. 
 
Online meetings on the other hand, saves a lot of time and is very easy to be set up. Simply create a meeting and invite all the participants.
 
It's cheaper than the physical meetings because all you need is just a computer system and an internet connection. All the travel and accommodation expenses can be cut down. Also, you can connect with anyone, from anywhere around the world. The chances of cancellation are low, compared to the physical meetings where external factors are involved, the train could get canceled, bad weather, and so on.
 
Zoho Meeting is an online meeting software, where you can hold online meetings in real-time. Integrating Bigin and Zoho Meeting, lets you create an online meeting right from the Events module in Bigin.
