The plugin allows you to use forms connected to the powerful Worldsoft Business Suite CRM directly on your WordPress website. It is created entirely to require only the free package of the CRM. You can create forms in the CRM and insert them in any page or post. Also the forms can be inserted as widgets.
There is a form builder interface that allows you to create responsive forms as you like. The settings of the form allow to redirect to a
special page or use a “thank you” text that you define, insert contacts in the CRM or not, send different kinds of notification, assign different processes
to happen after the form is sent.

The plugin is created with the purpose of offering a very high security to your data. The plugin does not save credentials for accessing your CRM.
Access to the CRM is only available when the admin is logged into your WordPress site admin page and requires the use of oAuth. The plugin gets the minimum rights
necessary to be functional: only read rights and only for getting the forms from CRM. For displaying the forms, the plugin is not connecting to CRM. These security
measures are in place to keep your client related data safe, even in the undesired situation that the server where you host the page is hacked.
The cloud is located in redundant data centers in Zurich, Switzerland and is protected under the Swiss law, which has high restriction related to the privacy and
the data protection – thus bringing you more security for your data.
The CRM has an API that gives access to all functionality. There is no part in the CRM that cannot be accessed over API.
This makes the plugin and the CRM be very developer friendly. In the case that you need something that is not in the CRM,
or you want to integrate it with another application, it is easy to use.
