How we’ve helped other businesses
“Goldstar has been a great partner, assisting our company with several enhancements that have made a big impact on how we use the Zoho CRM. They have not only assisted us with how we bring info into the system, cleaning up and streamlining the process, but they have also created custom modules, rules and workflows within the CRM itself that are specific to our company’s needs.
The tools they have helped us put in place, and the support they have provided so we can better use the CRM has been invaluable. I highly recommend the Goldstar team!”

Goldstar’s approach has been brilliant, from completely understanding our business needs, through to testing, training and launch. I am very pleased to say that now we are up and running, we can still rely on Goldstar to provide second to none support.
10 out of 10 and would highly recommend Goldstar to any company wishing to implement innovative and intuitive systems”
“Working with Paul and the team was a dream. They’re a group of extremely talented, knowledgeable and personable individuals. Every call we had we were laughing and enjoying the process, no matter how many times they said “API’s” or “work flows”.
We’ve got a small knowledge in this stuff within the team but no where near what we needed to get Zoho One set-up in a way that really worked for us. I’m so appreciative of the Goldstar team, it’s going to put my business to the next level.”
