    How to integrate Voiso with the Zoho CRM.


    Voiso integrates with the Zoho CRM through an extension available from the Zoho Marketplace.


    The Voiso Integration app for Zoho enables the following CRM features:

    Click-to-callAgents initiate calls in Zoho by clicking a dialable number instead of manually dialing the number
    Calling List ImportVoiso pulls selected contact phone numbers direcly from the Zoho database for Dialer campaigns
    Screen PopThe contact record is automatically displayed in Zoho when an agent handles a call in Voiso
    Call HistoryCall outcome logging and call details are automatically transmitted to the Zoho database after a call
    Ticket creationWhen an agent completes an inbound, manually dialed outbound, or click-to-call outbound call, Voiso automatically creates a ticket for the call and assigns it to the agent who handled it.


    Agents can dial contact numbers directly from the Zoho application by clicking any dialable number. This feature enables agents to make calls without manually dialing the number or copying and pasting a number into the dialpad, and without leaving the Zoho application to call from another application.

    Calling list import

    This feature allows you to import outbound campaign Calling lists from Zoho to Voiso. First create a Campaign in Zoho, add Leads or Contacts, then use the Campaign as a data source in the Voiso Dialer campaign builder.

    Screen pop

    When a call is routed to an agent, Voiso displays the relevant Zoho objects, such as cases and contact records, in Zoho.

    Call history

    Call history, also called Call outcome logging, adds information from Voiso about the call to the activity task about the call in Zoho. The following Voiso call details can be included in the call activity task:

    • From number (ANI)
    • To number (DNIS)
    • Call type
    • Disposition code
    • Queue
    • Script
    • Start time
    • End time
    • Call duration
    • End reason
    • Call recording link

    Ticket creation

    Voiso creates tickets in Zoho and assigns them to the agent who handled the call for the following calling scenarios:

    • An agent completes an inbound call
    • An agent manually dials an outbound call or uses click-to-call
    • An agent misses an inbound call
    • An agent makes an outbound call that is unanswered

    If an agent handles an inbound call for a contact that does not exist in the Zoho contact database, Voiso automatically creates a contact.

    The following ticket record fields are updated by Voiso when a ticket is created:

    • subject
      • Inbound call: Inbound call to {contact.lastName}
      • Outbound call/Click-to-call: Outbound call to {contact.lastName} description
      • Start time: {start_time}
      • Duration: {duration}
      • Disposition: {disposition}
      • CDR link: {cdr_url} (a link to the Extended Call Details page in Voiso)
      • Call note: {call_note}
    • phone
      • DNIS for outbound calls
      • ANI for inbound calls
    • contactId
    • departmentId
    • assigneeId (ID of the agent)
