Integrating Parseur with Zoho CRM to automate lead generation processes

Parseur is a powerful email parsing and PDF parsing tool for automating data extraction documents. The parsed data can either be downloaded or exported to Zoho CRM via Zapier.

Our customers send email data to Zoho CRM to create leads:

  • sent via their website or via a web form
  • received from a marketing campaign
  • consolidated from a third party lead generation service

Parseur works with different types of industries and use cases. For this article, we will take the example of a real estate business owner who receives leads' information from different platforms such as Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor. Those emails come in different formats and layouts. Before he can pass on the leads' details to his sales team, he needs to make sure that the lead is a qualified prospect.

This would typically entails the manual processes below:

  1. going through every emails manually
  2. extract the specific information from the email (lead's contact details, property details)
  3. create the lead in his Zoho CRM account
  4. assign the lead to the sales team

A time-consuming and tedious process especially when you receive hundreds of leads' details in your mailbox.

By bringing those two applications together, you can automatically add or update leads to Zoho with text extracted from emails and streamline your business process. Stop manually copying and pasting lead information and take your Zoho CRM Lead automation to the next level.
