Become a Certified Canvas Designer for Zoho CRM

Certified Canvas Designers Program for Zoho CRM

In August, we launched Canvas, the industry’s first CRM no-code design studio. Canvas is a drag-and-drop, zero-code design studio built into Zoho CRM that allows customers to redesign the look and feel of their CRM UI. Canvas is available in all editions of Zoho CRM, Zoho CRM Plus, and Zoho One.

When we had our last design revamp back in 2016, it offered a cleaner, more contextual experience, but some customers felt it lacked in personalization options. Since then, we’ve dreamed of offering something that takes user experience to the next level. Canvas for Zoho CRM was a result of years of dedicated effort to enable customers to add a more personal touch to their CRM. And we’re delighted to report that people are loving it! The responses from our customers and partners have been overwhelmingly positive.

And now, we’re taking it one step further. To ensure that even more customers get to have a CRM that complements their business style and industry preferences, we’re introducing a program called the Zoho CRM Certified Canvas Designers Program.

This program is an opportunity for all you designers and web developers out there to become Canvas Certified and extend your design services to Zoho customers.

Here are some details that will help you understand how this program works.

What is the Certified Designers Program?

The Certified Canvas Designers Program for Zoho CRM is a place where we showcase all the certified Canvas Designers who can help customers develop and implement Canvas templates for their business.

Why did we set up this program?

One size doesn’t fit all. Every business is different and has different needs. Zoho CRM offers customers several predesigned templates that our users can apply or customize, or they can build their own designs in Canvas from scratch. However, customers with more complex or unique business requirements may want help from an expert designer to customize Canvas to exactly suit their company’s needs. That’s where the Certified Canvas Designers can step in to help.

The objective of this program is to help our Zoho CRM customers connect with designers who can offer them a personalized user experience and create Canvas views that meet their complex or unique business needs.

How can you apply for this program?
