The hurdle: no proper integration with the previous system

Apples & Oranges Public Relations (AOPR) is an NYC-based public relations and events planning agency. Its clients prefer scheduling meetings directly from the company's website, so the team needed a proper online booking solution.

The company previously used Microsoft Bookings to collect appointments but found that Zoho Bookings offered better integrations with Zoho CRM and calendar apps.

Gathering information before meeting

CEO Amore Philip and her team have a questionnaire that clients must fill out before scheduling a meeting. The booking form feature in Zoho Bookings enables them to collect data effortlessly. "When we have appointments, all of their [information] is available for us to discuss during the process."

Streamlined sales

Since the AOPR sales team is remote, the Zoho Bookings integration with Zoho CRM and calendar apps helps streamline meetings using a single platform. "We have been converting about 3% of appointments booked with the sales team," Philip remarks.

Zoho Bookings: a good investment for a business

For anyone looking to try Zoho Bookings, Philip says, "The integration with [Zoho] CRM is great." She also notes that there are "lots of customization for the forms," and that it eliminates the need to spend time on data entry. When it comes to Zoho products, she concludes "It was one of the best investments we made to grow and scale our business."
