Direct click to call from Zoho CRM

Adding telephony to your Zoho CRM
Today most of the manufacturing companies have a CRM in order to capture the basic customer information and manage the customer life cycle. As we move ahead, to enhance customer experience and make conversation seamless, it is necessary to integrate telephony solution with CRM.
Recently we integrated calling solution for a manufacturing company using Zoho CRM. 
Background:
A 40 yr old company primarily manufacturing fertilizer and other agri products. They have published a number where farmers as well as distributors can directly call  All the conversation are manually updated in the CRM.
Problem-
  1. Lack of a telephony linkage with the CRM prevents the management from understanding what was the actual conversation which transpired between the Farmer & the agent. In the scenario that the agent changes historical records of the calls are lost along-with the context of the call.
  2. Lack of quality check of the calls being received – Since the information being disseminated over the call is very contextual related to the crops, whether which fertilizer to use or which disease to be controlled, its critical to give the right inputs.

Solution Offered – Company was using traditional landline for customer calling with no integration between the calling solution and the CRM. Ozonetel offered an integrated solution on the cloud linking up both these systems.
Key Benefits-
  1. Call directly from CRM-  With integrated cloud telephony solution, you can directly call via the CRM. By a simple click of the green button calls will be initiated.

  1. Call disposition details- After the call is over, you can write brief about call, which helps in customer follow up.
  2. Seamless communication -  In the window, you will the CRM as well as the Telephony solution, don’t have to toggle between different windows.
The solution is applicable to all manufacturing businesses wanting  to track customer conversation and have a quality conversation with the customers.

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Mashing up Freshdesk with KooKoo for customer support ticket management

Sorry for the delay in writing a blog post. I have been caught up in too many things since last month(we are growing, so its all good :)) Anyway, this week I thought I will look at how we can use the latest rockstar startup from India, Freshdesk . Freshdesk, as most of you know is one of the best "Social Helpdesk" systems out there. I am sure most of you are already using Freshdesk to support your customers. In this blogpost I will explain how you can add telephony to the mixture. In particular I will show some code which you can use to : Welcome the caller by name Ask him to enter his ticket id Play out the ticket status Connect the caller to the correct agent handling the ticket. Luckily for us, Freshdesk has a very well defined API and it was a pleasure to work with it. The engineers were also very supportive and answered all my queries quickly. So lets get into the code directly. 1. First we need to get the caller information. For this we need to a
