Welcome back to Boost productivity with Google Workspace integration series. In this blog, we will be discussing the features and benefits of integrating Vtiger CRM with Google Meet.
If you are working remotely, collaborating with your team members over audio calls does not always work. Sometimes, you may want to show a presentation to your team, or if a customer is facing an issue with your product, you may want to see the issue live to fix it quickly. In situations like these, it is better to make video calls which allow you to share your screen with multiple people at the same time and connect with them virtually.
According to a report by Lifesize on the Impact of Video Conferencing report, 55% believe companies that use video conferencing are more collaborative.
Now, what is the preferred application to carry out video calls seamlessly to engage with customers as well as teammates sitting in the comfort of your home? One of the best apps out there is Google Meet.
And if you are a CRM user? Then the ideal solution would be to integrate Google Meet with your CRM.
Let us learn about Google Meet first.
What is Google Meet
Google Meet is a popular video-conferencing app that empowers various teams to connect from different locations. It allows you to create meeting links and share it with hundred participants at once. Google Meet is compatible with various devices like laptops, mobile phones, iPad, etc., and it also allows you to share screens with your team members.
Using the Meet application, you can see the number of participants who joined the meeting. You can mute or unmute audio, add or remove participants, share files or links using the chat feature, etc.
The only limitation is that you can only attend a meeting if you are signed into your Google account.
Now, if you are a CRM user, you can integrate your Google Meet application with a CRM and share meeting links from different modules. Let us understand it more by looking at the Google Meet integration with Vtiger CRM.
Connecting Google Meet with Vtiger CRM
By now you must have understood Google Meet helps you to carry out engaging conversations within and across organizations. With the number of tasks that are being assigned to you on a daily basis, it is difficult to log in to the Google Meet application all the time to conduct video conference calls. Switching between different applications is time-consuming, thus Google Meet integration with Vtiger CRM is a viable option for effective collaboration.
In Vtiger CRM, Google Meet is available in the Events, Contacts, Deals, and Live Chats modules once the extension is added.
In the Events module, you can quickly create an event by clicking on Add Event. For example, if you want to discuss sales quota with your team members you can create an event and add all your team members. You can include relevant information like Name of the event, add participants using Assigned To, Start and End Date, agenda of the meeting, etc. In the Activity type, you need to select Google Meet to create meeting links.
In the Vtiger Contacts, Deals, and Live Chats modules, click on a particular record to schedule meetings directly from Vtiger Summary View.
Google Meet is available as Log a Meeting or Schedule Conference in these modules. In the former, you need to select Google Meet from the drop-down menu and in the latter, it is available by default.
For example, using these modules meetings can be conducted to resolve customer queries, schedule demo presentations, conduct webinars on a recently launched feature, etc.
For contacts and deals, you can also send meeting links through emails by inserting links. You can click on the email icon present in the Summary View and while composing emails, you can click on Schedule Conference to schedule a meeting via Google Meet.
