Managing Process

Understanding review processes 

It's important to analyze and verify the information that enters your organization's database. In the long run, this helps maintain a clean database and saves a lot of time and effort.
For example, a firm receives hundreds of loan applications every day through both manual and online submissions. A few fields need to be checked before approving the applications. For examples, fields containing the info on the existing loans, collateral files, etc. You can configure review processes for both standard and custom modules in the Zoho CRM web application. Records can only be reviewed in the web application. Learn more here .
