Hattons of London, UK is an e-Commerce company trading in rare and exclusive coins, including world’s first and exclusive releases. The company started in 2017. The company’s founder was looking for a scalable and flexible solution that can be easily integrated with an e-Commerce platform i.e., Woo Commerce using REST APIs. After doing a round of discussions and evaluating other CRM, Zoho One was selected for the obvious reason that it provides 360-degree business process management. Being a Zoho Premium Partner, we have implemented and integrated Zoho CRM, Zoho Books, Zoho Inventory for 200+ Zoho One users.
The customer was looking for less complex CRM that is available 24*7 and can be accessed across all channels like desktop, mobile, I-pads, etc. Based on the customer’s need, we shortlisted Zoho One. Also, we evaluated time to implement, operational cost, maintenance cost, upgradation issues, lead time, flexibility, and customizability. In all parameters, Zoho comes as a winner in terms of value for money. As the company was very new, there were limitations in terms of resources, so additional features were also evaluated against requirements. With Zoho One, as Zoho Books and Zoho Inventory along with 48 other applications comes as one package, it was a clear winner.
It was a new startup with a team of 4-5 people with a clear vision and mission to create an impact in the rare coin industry. Founder, Simon Millenger has worked as VP in London Mint Company for a very long time. In less than a year, the company picked pace and grew to 50+ employees and then after the UK, the company expanded business in the USA. Hattons of London started a new company SterlingMint to trade in rare silver coins as the tribute to Corona Warriors and it was an instant hit. SterlingMint worked with NHS to recognize and reward corona warriors in the UK.
