Blueprint is Zoho CRM’s simple and effective solution to your process automation requirements.  It is designed to help you execute a business process in a well-defined and systematic manner. With a Blueprint you can:

  • Define the sequence of stages in a process
  • Associate the right people to each stage.
  • Guide your teams through the execution of the process.
  • Mandate and validate important information contextually.
  • Automate routine actions.

First, using states and transitions, design a blueprint to fit your business’s needs.  Automate stages so when your sales teams complete a task, it will trigger a new step of tasks to keep a consistency of business processes.  Also, one can trigger automated emails based on a template of your design, new tasks created, and fields updated.
