Zoho tightens integration between CRM and support apps

Customer contacts can now be automatically imported to Zoho Support from Zoho CRM

Zoho has deepened the integration between its CRM (customer relationship management) and customer support cloud applications to simplify account management.

Now, users will be able to configure Zoho Support so that it automatically imports contacts from Zoho CRM at preset intervals.

That way, both applications will have a consistent list of customer account contacts for sales and support purposes. It was previously possible to do these imports, but they had to be done manually.

"We hope this would reduce a lot of your effort towards managing contacts between the two apps," a Zoho official wrote in a blog post.

Zoho added Zoho Support in late 2010 to its Web-hosted collaboration, communication, business and office productivity application suite for small and medium-size businesses.

Zoho now has more than 25 applications on its roster. Last week, it launched its latest one, Zoho Campaigns, designed to let companies manage their email and social media marketing campaigns. This application is also integrated with Zoho CRM, letting users synchronize CRM contacts and campaign mailing lists.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
