How Does Zoom Work with Advisor Bookings?

When you connect your Advisor Bookings account to Zoom your contacts will sync to/from Zoom to Advisor Bookings. Both accounts will be current with all of your contacts.  

When an appointment is made in Advisor Bookings, it will do the following:

  1. If the appointment is created with a new customer, the customer will be added to Zoom and a new event will be added to that customers activity profile.
  2. If the appointment is made with an existing customer, the appointment will be added as an event in the Zoom customer profile.
  3. In either case, Advisor Bookings will automatically include a Unique URL for the video session with each new appointment that is made
  4. Advisor Bookings will include the link for the video session in the calendar attachment, the calendar sync and all emails. 
  5. The customer and staff will have the links available for a quick login with no extra steps. 

The Zoom and Bookafy connection allows you to give your customers a great video conferencing solution and allow you to streamline and automate your sales activity from initial prospect to video call.

Configure your sync in minutes to begin leveraging the best of both platforms.
