4 Reasons To Build a Product Catalog in Zoho CRM

What Is a Product Catalog

A product catalog is the place to keep information about products or services your company produces or provides.

This is a log that contains product descriptions, attributes, service packages, and other important information.

Product catalogs can be a useful tool to promote new products or services, or to upsell customers on higher-end items. They can also be a helpful reference for customer service representatives when dealing with customer inquiries.

Product Catalogs In Zoho CRM

The Products module in Zoho CRM lets you manage your company’s products, both the ones you sell to customers and the ones you procure from vendors. This module is helpful for both sales and purchasing departments to coordinate more effectively. 

Sales departments can use the Products module along with other modules, such as leads, accounts, potentials, quotes, sales orders, and invoices. Purchasing departments can use the module along with Vendors and Purchase Orders.
