In this #JustLowcodeIt series, our LATAM partner, Cytocrom from Mexico City, delves into how it addressed client challenges using Zoho Creator. This piece is penned by Francisco Leon, CEO at Cytocrom, as a contribution to the Creator Developers' Month campaign. Thank you for sharing your story with us!
Cytocrom is an established Zoho partner based in Mexico City, boasting nearly a decade of experience in delivering cutting-edge technology solutions across the Latin American region. With a team of seasoned consultants and a strong commitment to client success, Cytocrom has earned a reputation for excellence in the Zoho ecosystem.
Its focus on the energy sector led to the development of a powerful Zoho Creator configure, price, quote (CPQ) application. This application addresses the challenges energy companies face, streamlining the quoting process through sophisticated features like a configuration price model, Zoho Deluge scripting, Rest API requests, and seamless integrations with external ERP systems and Zoho CRM. It empowers energy companies to respond quickly to customer inquiries, make data-driven decisions, and ensure accuracy in quoting, ultimately enhancing growth and customer satisfaction.
The challenges that this application aims to solve revolve around three critical issues:
- Extended quotation timelines
- Bottlenecks in estimating approval
- Complex processes for pricing, quoting, and delivery
These issues collectively hinder operational efficiency and customer satisfaction, making the need for a comprehensive solution paramount.
The application comprises various modules such as Clients, Contacts, Products, Pricing, Warehouse, Pages, Reports, and Forms, ensuring a comprehensive and integrated approach to addressing the challenges.
The results have been impressive. The deployment of the application has led to a 60% reduction in the time taken for pricing and quoting, significantly improving closing and conversion rates. Additionally, it has provided more accurate sales forecasts, enabling better decision-making and resource allocation.
The ROI for this project was achieved within just six months of deployment—a remarkable feat considering the substantial improvements in efficiency and revenue generation.
A key takeaway from this success story is the importance of thinking beyond building mere modules and focusing on crafting holistic solutions. Effective communication with customers plays a pivotal role in understanding their complex requirements and tailoring solutions accordingly. This approach has been pivotal in achieving such impressive results.
The message to budding Zoho Creator developers underscores the need to think creatively, engage deeply with customers, and offer end-to-end solutions rather than piecemeal modules. By understanding customer needs thoroughly and going beyond conventional development practices, developers can create solutions that not only meet but exceed expectations, ultimately delivering exceptional value to clients.
In summary, Cytocrom's journey as a Zoho partner and its success in developing a transformative Zoho Creator application for the energy sector demonstrates the power of innovative thinking, client-centric solutions, and effective communication. It serves as an inspiring example for developers in the Zoho ecosystem to embrace a holistic approach and strive for excellence.
