Bad experience with Bigin
Comments: It was good & i was very happy till i found all my accounting data was not integrated and had to add contacts manually
Integration with GSuite Tasks / Calendar
The worst is it does not integrate with Zoho Books, there is not point. I spent time exporting contacts from books and importing to Bigin and then realised this is foolish to do. They promised to integrate with books but they also suggested to use zoho flow another paid application. This is not fair as why should i keep paying for applications, they should have offered zoho flow for free as it is their fault when CRM is not integrated with books/accounting

Bigin is the business - brilliant CRM for small businesses
Comments: Bigin by ZOHO CRM is absolutely fantastic! I love everything about it. I've tried lots of other tools and not been sold. This one is the best by miles - and the most affordable!!!
Bigin is very easy to use, and others also pick it up quickly. The best part is customising fields for all modules - super quick and easy to do and can be done on the fly. The Gmail add-on is also excellent, and seamless, as is the use of IMAP emails. Brilliant tool.
Not any con's I can think of, other than the email templates bit wasn't as intuitive as the rest. I worked it out, but that was the only thing that had me a tad puzzled for a while. Very minor detail.
Reasons for Choosing Bigin by Zoho CRM: HubSpot is very complicated when it comes to customising fields and processes. I was really invested in making it work, watched tutorials etc, but I gave up this month and I just wish I had checked out Bigin years ago!!!

Reasons for Switching to Bigin by Zoho CRM: Price, and trial - product sold itself.

Why I moved over to Zoho/Bigin?
Comments: After reviewing the comments by users of Zoho/Bigin I have spent the last 15 odd days setting up, testing and assessing the ease of use of this fully integrated CRM platform. The admin side of my business needs to be intuitive so I can focus on providing my personal counselling and professional coaching services.I am pleased with the integration of key platforms, primary features and functions. I have used various aspects of this platform and the level of support provided by their staff has allowed me to broaden my marketing while providing additional resources for the community I serve. This is a welcoming platform considering the multitude of options out there.
The level of support and ease of integration with my social media and applications
The integration with my website and Google Workspace was painless. There are some issues like DRAFT mode on smart devices for email sending would be beneficial.
BEST Small Business CRM

The ease of use, scalability for a small business, as well as easy work flow.
I'm not expecting a lot of automation with the cost of this CRM. So no disappointments.
Reasons for Choosing Bigin by Zoho CRM: The workflow and seamless design.
Reasons for Switching to Bigin by Zoho CRM: Cost and same features for what I needed.
To stay organised and on top of your contacts and leads. That's where Bigin by Zoho CRM comes in
Comments: User-Friendly Interface: my team appreciates the intuitive and user-friendly interface of Bigin. They find it easy to navigate, allowing them to quickly adapt to the CRM system and start managing their contacts and leads effectively.Cost-Effective Solution: our purchasing department mentioned that Bigin offers excellent value for its price. It is an affordable CRM solution for small businesses and entrepreneurs with limited budgets.
I liked how Bigin makes it easy to manage and organize leads. The centralized database is a great feature, as Bigin allowed me to keep track of all my leads and their contact information in one place. I also appreciated the ability to capture leads from various sources and track where they came from. Additionally, segmenting leads based on different criteria was very helpful, allowing me to target my marketing efforts more effectively. Overall, Bigin is a valuable tool for lead management, and I would recommend it to others.
It needs more customization options and improvements to third-party integration and the mobile app.
Using for Contact Management
Inexpensive simple platform that can be deployed in no time
The UI is still very old school - can be refreshed for the new design elements.
Easy and efficient
Comments: Great, I'm very impressed with the software; how easy and intuitive it is. I really like the user-face - it makes sense!
Bigin has a very intuitive user-face. It is easy to set up and will enable our company to manage our sales, order fulfilment and customer service all from one place. Workflow functionality enables us to automate routine tasks, helping us to work efficiently. Integrations with Campaigns, Analytics and Forms is useful for us.
In the premier package I would like more workflows/conditions/actions and notifications as standard. I would also like more email templates and the option of more complex webforms as standard. More of each of these can be purchased, thankfully and Zoho forms can be integrated if necessary.
Bigin by Zoho - a review
Comments: Overall, Bigin CRM by Zoho is a promising solution that does not compromise on features despite its focus on small-scale operations. It's a highly recommended tool for businesses seeking a cost-effective and comprehensive CRM system.
The interface is clean, intuitive, and user-friendly, making it easy to navigate. It has a quick learning curve and you can have it up and running efficiently in no time. Zoho's attention to user experience here is commendable.
some issues with email syncing and no dedicated lead management page to be able to prioritise
A Basic CRM for mid tier pricing
Comments: An attempt at a CRM system that needs a lot of development. This may be appropriate for some industries e.g. call centres, but not for managing financial services pipelines etc.
The pipeline is simple to manage, but it's clear that this is not a CRM system that was designed for financial services.
Bigin is very inflexible and amends or additions to your setup come at a cost. The system is also very basic and clunky: for example, dashboard reports cannot be exported as a view of the whole report, instead you only have the option to export an individual graph at a time.
The perfect CRM when you're too big for a spreadsheet and don't need one of the behemoths!
Comments: I loved having the full featured free trial to completely test things out before making a purchase. It made it easy to dive in and get started instead of sitting through sales calls hoping to get the information we needed to make a purchasing decision. Setup was intuitive and the customization was easy to use to make Bigin exactly what we needed. I would recommend Bigin to anyone who needs a starter CRM.
Super intuitive to use Excellent pricing Lots of customization options Easy API
Needs more integrations with other tools
BIGIN worth to rely on
Comments: Very good so far, i believe i will not change anymore
Ease of Access & editing to your needs this is what i loved
it needs a connection with WHATSAPP & MESSENGER many people are following up these days their business on these messaging tools, we need an integration fast so that the deals to have data from these platforms also and have a complete picture
