Let’s take a look at how the Canvas View can help you in your field.

   In the automotive industry: If you’re a vintage vehicle dealer who uses CRM to manage your data, such as a list of vehicles, client requirements, the number of vintage vehicles available for auction, and so on. Using the material, you can change how these goods are reflected in your store.

Working in the Real Estate Industry: Assume you own a real estate company and use CRM to manage a variety of properties. You can choose to display these property photographs, change the backdrop colour of the property region, and highlight the area using the Canvas tool. To keep track of your customers’ phone numbers, email addresses, and residential addresses, you can combine the data together.

In the tourism business: When using Zoho CRM, you can create and switch between ListView and Kanban/Inventory View as needed. We’ve created the Canvas View to meet these unique requirements.

In Zoho CRM, Canvas View allows you to create a unique perspective on your CRM records. You can use canvas to add and record images for better identification, create custom buttons for addressing fields, use specified font styles or sizes, adjust the alignment of field kinds, group comparable field types, and much more.

A Zoho Authorized Partner will assist all organisations, large and small, by recognising the unique demands of your company and ensuring that you get the most out of your investment.

What is the purpose of Canvas?

Zoho CRM is the best customizable CRM in the market at present, for two reasons: the what and the how? 

 1It’s easy to use: Canvas can be used by anyone who isn’t a Zoho developer or designer. It’s as simple as dragging and dropping components onto the screen, clicking for design options, and that’s it!

2. It’s exceptionally adaptable: You may use various shadings, try different data arrangements, modify the text, add borders, shadow, radius, padding, corners, insert backdrop photographs, and much more with Canvas’ customizable features.

What role does Canvas play in this?

Clients can use Canvas to create a CRM that they like.

  1. For a more streamlined and user-friendly CRM interface:

Salespeople devote a significant portion of their time to Zoho CRM. Giving customers a CRM that they enjoy using is a sure bet. Clients can use Canvas to create a CRM that is both flexible and intuitive to use.

  1. Genuinely yours for your industry: 

Every industry is distinct, and every firm is distinct. Clients can use Canvas to help them create an image. If you work in tourism, your CRM account may include details such as recreation, sports & adventure, amusement, and vacation travels. You can add a charming perspective by including pictures of the destination and adventure sports, adjusting the depiction of the area directly beneath the picture, selecting a font colour that draws the client’s attention to the picture, and using custom field buttons to represent different travel modes.
