What Are The Differences Between Zoho CRM, Hubspot And Salesforce?

Zoho CRM, Salesforce, and HubSpot are distinct CRM applications, each with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Notably, Zoho sets itself apart from the others in several ways. First and foremost, it stands out as a cost-effective solution, making it particularly well-suited for small and emerging businesses seeking to expand their operations through its flexible and intelligent capabilities. It also excels in handling individual tasks and issue management. Comparatively, when evaluating HubSpot, businesses often find themselves in a situation where continuous upgrades are necessary to access advanced features. Zoho CRM, in contrast, provides robust features without the need for constant upgrades, offering a cost-effective alternative to HubSpot.

Is Zoho CRM Cloud Based?
Absolutely, it operates on a cloud-based infrastructure. This strategic choice ensures that all data stored in the system is securely hosted offsite offering several advantages, such as eliminating the necessity for businesses to maintain physical servers on their premises. Cloud-based storage simplifies data management, as users can access information anytime, anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection. This flexibility and accessibility enhance the overall user experience and data security, making cloud-based CRM a practical choice for modern businesses.
Can I Convert Contacts To Leads?
Regrettably, contacts cannot be directly converted into leads since contacts represent the final stage of the process. To address this, contacts can be exported by using reports. Subsequently, the contacts can be re-imported from the report into the software, effectively initiating a new cycle. This process transforms the previous contacts back into new leads, allowing the system to manage them accordingly. Click here to learn more.
How Do I Export Contacts From Zoho CRM?
Exporting data from the system is a simple and streamlined process. Access the Zoho CRM profile, then go to "Setup" > "Data Administration" and press "Export". This will activate the data export feature, allowing users to export the CRM data in CSV format. Select the specific module from which they wish to export data, such as leads, and then click "Export" to generate a downloadable CSV file.
Can I Mass Export Contacts From CRM?
CRM has the capability to perform mass exports, with a limit of up to 3000 records at a time. To surpass this limitation, businesses are advised to utilise reports for mass exporting of data. By incorporating specific fields into reports, businesses can generate and export a larger volume of records, in a similar format to mass exporting. To learn more, click here or here.
How Do I Create A Zoho CRM Email Template?

To begin, navigate to the CRM profile. Then follow this path: "Setup" > "Customisation" > "Templates" > "Email" > "Email Templates". In this section, click on "New Template." Next, choose the instance where the template will be applied. CRM will then guide the user to a template gallery page, offering three methods for template creation:

  • From Scratch: Choose a "Blank" template and use the drag-and-drop builder to create a template entirely from scratch.
  • Predesigned Templates: Access templates that have already been created and provided within the service.
  • Insert HTML: Create an emial template from scratch using HTML.

Can I Connect Zoho CRM To Email Services?
Yes, the software can seamlessly integrate with various email systems, including Zoho Mail, Gmail, or Outlook. These integrations link your contacts from the application to the chosen email application, ensuring that any leads are automatically added to the contacts list. It's important to note that this feature is available only with paid packages, not the free version. To set up the integration, simply navigate to the setup page in the settings and select email settings to configure an IMAP connection. Click here to learn more.
Can I Import CSV Or XLS Data Into CRM?
Indeed, the software provides the capability to import CSV and XLS files seamlessly. However, it's essential to ensure that the CSV or XLS file adheres to the correct format and is displayed accurately. Failing to do so may result in data entry errors, with information being improperly allocated to fields within the database.
Is There A Way To Retrieve Deleted Users In CRM?
Regrettably, when a user is deleted, they are permanently removed from the system. However, there's no need to worry as these users can be re-added as new users. While it may require some time and effort to complete the re-addition process, rest assured that the user can regain access to the system once the re-adding process is successfully executed.
Can Zoho CRM Integrate With Zoho Bookings?

The software offers seamless integration with the Zoho Bookings plugin. To initiate this integration, users should first install the plugin. Once installed, they can select which profiles should have access to the plugin: either admins only, all users, or specific users. After choosing the profiles, click the "Confirm" button. A pop-up will confirm a successful installation. Within the pop-up, click "Authorise," which will redirect to a new page where admins can grant permission to use information from the bookings profile. By clicking "Accept," the integration installation process will be complete. Click here to read more.

Can Zoho CRM Integrate With Shopify?

Yes, Shopify can be integrated with Zoho CRM. To begin the installation process, access the Zoho CRM profile and navigate to "Setup" > "Zoho Marketplace". From here, find the "Shopify for Zoho CRM" plugin and install it. Next, certain profiles using the plugins must be specified, this can include admins only, all profiles, or specific users. Once this is complete, a pop-up will appear for the access token from the current Shopify store and the shop name of the account. Once filled out and fully installed, Shopify will be successfully installed. Click here to learn more. However, many users find greater satisfaction in utilising Zoho's own Zoho Commerce platform.
