Virtual Sales Gong

Back in the day, when all our employees fit in one office, we had a dinner bell hanging on the wall. Whenever we won a new deal, someone walked by the bell and rang it to celebrate success.

Since then, Vincit has spread to several offices and I have longed for the sound of a sales bell at each office. Notifications of closed deals are pushed to Slack, but it's not the same.

Since I couldn't find a ready-made solution, I decided to implement my own sales gong as an Android app. You can download the app from Google Play. Instructions for setting up the bell, as well as the source code for the app, are stored in Github. I have used the app with Vincit's Pipedrive CRM, but it should be easy to connect the bell with any modern CRM.

If you intend to use the gong with a Bluetooth speaker, please note that most of them switch off automatically after a certain time of inactivity. One of the few which does stay on is Anker SoundCore.
