Integrating with Zoho Books

The Zoho Books/Invoice integration for Bigin lets you sync contacts, companies, and products between Zoho Books or Zoho Invoice and Bigin. Zoho Books and Zoho Invoice users can also create and view invoices, estimates, and sales orders related to customers from their Bigin account. Take the case of a local travel agency which uses Bigin to manage their sales pipeline. Once the deal is created, they want to create an estimate or invoice for the travel package and share it with the customer. With the Zoho Books/Invoice integration for Bigin, the travel agency can create an estimate or invoice directly from the record details page in Bigin and share it with the customer.
