Today’s sales teams need to communicate, collaborate, and do their best work from anywhere – not just from the office.
When you’re working with a remote workforce, putting together flexible work policies and setting up digital spaces to collaborate, the last thing you need is your IT infrastructure giving up on you. No matter how uncertain the times may seem, if your IT infrastructure is flexible enough to allow your sales teams to be fully functional remotely, riding out the storm may be easier after all.
Today, we are happy to announce Zoho CRM’s Remote Sales Office – an easy-to-install toolkit that will offer Zoho Cliq, Zoho Meeting, and Zoho ShowTime integrations with CRM under one package. This package will make the remote work experience for your sales teams much simpler.
Here’s what you can do with Zoho CRM’s Remote Sales Office –
Host online meetings and webinars using Zoho Meeting
Video calls, virtual meetings, and remote presentations are a big part of connecting with your customers when you are away from your desk. Integrate Zoho Meeting with Zoho CRM and engage your CRM leads and contacts without leaving your CRM account. Schedule meetings, organize webinars, invite leads and contacts, view RSVPs, convert webinar registrants into CRM leads, watch meeting and webinar recordings, and get webinar reports, all from within your Zoho CRM.
Organize your corporate communication using Zoho Cliq
Since remote work means you can’t drop by someone’s desk for a quick chat, you need to find another way to stay in touch day-to-day. Zoho Cliq combines instant messaging with video, audio, and group conferencing to create a unified communication system for your entire sales team. Our exclusive multi-pane view lets you keep tabs on multiple conversations at once, or switch to a single chat window if there’s a discussion that requires your undivided attention. There’s more to Cliq than meets the eye – click here to read a comprehensive guide on how Cliq facilitates remote team collaboration.
Onboard your fast-growing global sales workforce with Zoho Showtime
Create and deliver engaging sales presentations to your leads and contacts. Once the deal is done, conduct training programs for your new customers across the globe. Interact with real-time training sessions, get analytics about what works and what doesn’t,and build offline training courses they can take at their convenience. Zoho CRM is automatically enriched with key customer information such as registration dates, sessions attended and customer engagement levels. This allows your sales teams to filter highly engaged prospects and reconnect with them for future sessions.
Here’s what one of our customers has to say about Remote Sales Office –
Our clients maintain a healthy pipeline and thanks to Zoho, we are able to work with them from any location. We recently completed a project we were able to fulfill from our offices in Atlanta, Georgia (USA) while using Zoho Meeting to have web conferences in Japan, France, Germany, Dubai, Australia and Singapore. Working remotely with our clients to help them refine their business development, sales and marketing just works because of Zoho. All of this was important to us before the pandemic, and it’s even more so now. Zoho’s ease of use has allowed many who are new to working remotely to jump right. There is a very short learning curve, and you are almost immediately productive.

Is your business ready for today and the future ?
Remote collaboration is increasingly becoming the future of work. From building teams to running meetings and events, businesses of all types and sizes are finding themselves in the position of having to move large portions of their business processes online. The key to a successful remote work transition is having the needed IT infrastructure, and that’s where Zoho comes in.
We hope that the Remote Sales Office will make your work simpler, improve your productivity and help your team build lasting customer relationships, wherever they are.
UPDATE (February 11th, 2021)
On May 21, 2020, we announced Zoho CRM’s Remote Sales Office as an initiative to bring immense value to collaborative sales teams who work from anywhere. This was always intended to be a paid add-on, but we felt last year’s situation warranted this to be a free offering so that businesses across all sizes and segments could benefit from it.
Starting this week, Remote Sales Office will be priced at $3/user/month. However if you are an existing user of Remote Sales Office, you can use it for free till February 28th, 2021.
Zoho Showtime will no longer be a part of Remote Sales Office. However, you can install the Zoho Showtime integration from the Zoho CRM Marketplace for free.
How does the pricing model work?
Customers who sign up for a trial version of Zoho CRM will be offered a trial of Remote Sales Office for 15 days. Existing customers who haven’t installed Remote Sales Office can also avail the 15-day trial period. Existing customers of Remote Sales Office get it for free till February 28th, 2021. After that, they can follow the below steps to make the purchase.
