- Works For You
- Works With You
- Works Anywhere
Next level user experience that works for you!
Bigin is a minimal CRM in a lot of ways. We do not stock Bigin with all the features we can think of. Rather, we only add features that actually work for you! None of the fancy stuff that would bloat the application. We found three key areas to work on to deliver a superb user experience. They are the streamlined pipeline view, the ability to customize modules, and enhancing the overall search experience in Bigin.
Enhanced pipeline view
Not to brag, but we definitely have the best pipeline arrangement compared to the competition and we squeezed even more out of it for this new refresh.
Here are some upgrades to the pipeline view:
Collapse or expand stages
You don't have to stare at stages you don't need. You can now collapse stages that aren't a priority and save that space for more important stages in your pipeline. Simply click on the bottom of any stage to collapse it into a bar with just its name and value.
Move stages along the pipeline
Don't bother meddling with settings to rearrange your stages in your pipeline. Easily drag-and-drop any stage to wherever you want it in your pipeline.
Want your stages bigger? Done. Want them smaller so you can have more stages in one window? Also done. Now you can resize all the stages in your pipelines the way you want!
Add a new stage instantly
Need a new stage in your pipeline? Easy.
Select New Stage at the top of any existing stage and, voila! A new stage pops up right after it.
Customize modules and rearrange fields
The new refresh now lets you customize your modules, including renaming them. For example, if you're used to calling them "Opportunities", not "Deals", simply rename the module! You can even edit the fields inside your modules!
Find and do it all with the
We took the search bar that had a single function and gave it a whole new dimension. With the new search, you can do more than just find things in Bigin. The search bar auto suggests as you type, and you can send emails, add notes, and edit fields directly from the results. It even shows what you looked up recently!
Record phone calls, transfer incoming calls, and more!
Record calls in Bigin, play them back whenever you want, and never miss any detail! You can also transfer incoming calls to your business to other users in your organization. Moreover, when you are on the phone and more calls pour in, Bigin can queue up your incoming calls, wait until your ongoing call ends, and connect the next caller to your line.
So extensible that it
works with you and all your apps!
It's been a while since we started adding integrations for Bigin. We began with the bare necessities and went on to build more useful integrations in 2020. This year, our goal is to make Bigin more extensible than ever with even more apps lined up for integration, including an option to integrate third-party applications using our brilliant developer APIs that make all your apps work together with you.
Here is how far you can stretch Bigin:
Connect to a world of apps with our APIs:
An instant hit with Bigin users who grabbed their early access, our developer APIs can cover less common integrations that most people have never heard of. Our APIs let you extend Bigin to meet your most specific needs by integrating with any third-party app of your choice from the world outside Zoho.
Bring your accounting to Bigin with Zoho Books and Invoice
Give your sales force a clear view of your accounting. Zoho Books for Bigin combines your finance and sales teams together so you can always refer to accounting data without having to switch between apps.
With easily available finance information, your sales teams can create estimates, sales orders, and invoices effortlessly directly from Bigin. You can even automate statements to be created based on the deal's stage in the pipeline by setting up simple workflows.
Send mass emails with Mailchimp
Mailchimp is famous in the email marketing world and it can certainly help with your marketing.
Easily sync your Bigin contacts with audience lists in Mailchimp to send mass emails to your contacts directly from Bigin.
Collect and store form responses effortlessly with Zoho Forms
The Zoho Forms integration for Bigin lets you seamlessly transfer data from your forms to any module in your Bigin account. You can embed forms into your email or webpage, map fields between your forms and Bigin, and, when a customer fills in a form, all the information is instantly transferred to your Bigin account.
You can also set triggers and actions and automate workflows in your Bigin account based on how users respond to your forms. All this with absolutely no coding!
Manage user access to records with Zoho CRM
Users in your organization that only perform basic CRM operations like adding new contacts, updating deal stages, making phone calls, may not require full access to Zoho CRM. Likewise, if you are an enterprise with a lot of CRM users, you may not want all of them to have access to all of your Zoho CRM data.
By integrating Bigin and Zoho CRM, you can pull your sporadic users out of Zoho CRM and add them to Bigin while keeping your Zoho CRM account exclusively for core users. This is less expensive and also keeps your data protected.
More leads with Zoho Sites
If you've created your website with Zoho Sites, you can now create web forms in your Bigin account and add them to your Zoho Sites in a single click without any coding. This lets you instantly capture information submitted by your visitors and automatically add them to your Bigin account as contacts. Any form you choose to add to your website will automatically adapt to your site's design and theme.
Work from anywhere
with the Bigin app
By now, you probably are very familiar with the Bigin app for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Android devices.
The mighty Bigin app for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Android devices for the same CRM experience, anywhere. The biggest advantage of being a Bigin user is you can truly sell on the go.

Bigin's pipeline view is unrivaled for various reasons and is industry-first in creating a pipeline view that goes toe-to-toe with any desktop pipeline layout. Just like in the pipeline view on desktop, you can perform loads of actions while on the move.
Here are some of the most prominent upgrades with this release:
Keep your deals moving!

The #BiginnersClub is lving these new updates!
With Bigin, we are able to know exactly where we stand, which stage of business we are in, and whether we are able to qualify our customers' needs. The implementation so far has been flawless and I am able to get a better picture of my business with the CRM system. I would recommend Bigin strongly to my peers.Vikas Suri,Founder and CEO, Kitchenrama
Having chosen Bigin was one of our best decisions as the program is very well laid out with a very intuitive user interface so any crew starting with the program does not need much training to take calls and begin building the relationship with the client. The deal pipeline is very well-thought-out, easy and intuitive to use, and allows to maintain a sales system where any crew member can pick up and close regardless of who has made the first contact.Stephen Frankland,Owner/Operator, Island Sailing
The new features very subtly decrease friction when using Bigin. It enables me to rearrange fields and the forms feel more natural now. I didn't have to make huge changes because Bigin already provided a streamlined, well thought-through process. The new, big search overlay makes it easy to find a person or deal or company because of the additional information. I'm really happy with choosing Bigin.Lennard Timm,Data Coach for Start-ups
New to Bigin but loving it already. Miles ahead of the competition and these new upgrades just put Bigin further ahead. Business is all about speed and ease and Bigin has cracked both in my opinion.Tom Holland,Inspire Modular homes limited

It requires virtually zero training. In today's environment, simplicity, focus, and ease of use cannot be understated - and the team at Bigin just delivered a world-class tool.Seth Campbell,Chairman, Five Doors Inc.
