Zoho CRM Launches Bigin for Small Businesses
CRM provider Zoho recently unveiled Bigin, a new pipeline-centric CRM software designed and priced specifically for small and micro businesses.
Businesses can onboard within 30 minutes on Bigin and start keeping track of their customers and improving customer relationships without worrying about high costs or complicated features.
Bigin was entirely built in India, as are all Zoho products. By choosing Bigin, Indian micro and small businesses will not only garner access to CRM software suitable to their scale of business, but will also inherit Zoho’s top-tier security and privacy practices. Also, their data will be stored securely on Zoho’s Indian data centres.
“Small businesses are the heart and soul of our communities and with business owners struggling more than ever right now, our goal is to bring them world-class customer relationship management technology at an extremely affordable price,” said Sridhar Vembu, CEO and co-founder of Zoho.
“We created Bigin to help small businesses achieve maximum growth with a minimal learning curve. Small businesses can stop relying on dozens of spreadsheets to manage customer activities and instead move to a CRM that is easy to use and allows them to focus on growing and building strong customer relationship,” he added.
Bigin is a pipeline-centric CRM solution focused on small businesses that do not need an elaborate, end-to-end CRM. If businesses outgrow Bigin, they can upgrade to Zoho CRM with ease. The key features of the CRM solution include:
- 30-minute setup: Bigin allows users to get up and running within 30 minutes through effortless on-boarding and guided set-up.

With an integrated telephony, Bigin pulls all the necessary information so that users can have well-informed calls with customers and prospects.
- Workflow Automation: Bigin helps sales reps drastically cut down the time spent on repetitive manual tasks with easy-to-create automated workflows.
