As businesses look for ways to continue offering services in this era of social distancing, the obvious solution is to meet clients virtually.
That's why Zoho Bookings is making our Zoho Meeting integration available for free. Originally part of our premium plan, this integration lets you connect Bookings with Zoho Meeting so that when someone schedules an appointment, an online meeting is automatically created. A link to join the meeting will show up in the appointment confirmation, the summary, and the email notifications you've set up.
With this integration in place, you can meet with one client at a time online. That means you can stay close without getting close.
Let's say you're a legal consultant. Normally, your client would book an appointment, walk in, and walk out an hour later with their problems relatively resolved.
If you meet online, they'll log into your meeting at the specified time, you'll discuss their issues, and they'll log off, just as satisfied as they'd be offline.
Nothing changes when you meet online except that it's safer and involves no travel. It's as easy as talking on the phone.
