  • Let's be honest, I'm an avid Apps user since DOS. ZAPIER, has automagically automated all of my apps on ALL OS platforms including but not limited to my: Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Gchat, Contacts, Google+, Google Analytics, Sheets, Slides, Docs, iOS OS, OS X, Windows and Linux. It's an unmatched suite of automating software, for an incredibly great price! JUST DO IT! Lol

    Pros : Pretty much literally ANY possible app you need for being a productive modern professional is automated with Zapier.

    Cons : ZAPIER may take a day to learn how to integrate all your apps API's, tokens, etc. aside from that it's BAD ASS!

  • What do you like best?

    Zapier is one of the best software integrations I've used. Whenever I consider a new software product, it's a must for me to make sure that it's compatible with Zapier.

    I've used it extensively across many applications, from populating a google spreadsheet via a web form to sending email notifications on updates while collaborating.

    I am always looking for new ways to automate certain processes with Zapier.

    A big thumbs up from me.

    What do you dislike?

    When integrating certain applications, it does take a bit of figuring out what goes where and how to get the most out of it.

    I initially tried to populate a spreadsheet and it needed bit of figuring out, however all was done within a short space of time.

    I have been using Zapier for over 2 years now and I only remember once having to reload a Zap or Zapier event when I noticed it wasn't connecting properly. I have since not had that problem again.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you're looking to free up time and resources within your business or organisation, I recommend using zapier. There are many ways it can make your life easier.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    The main use I've found is the integration between a web form and a google docs spreadsheet. Whenever the form gets filled, a new row entry get completed in my spreadsheet automatically. I then only need to review my spreadsheet and populate my reports.

    I try to solve all my business problems with Zapier.

    Zapier seemed like a bit of a magic bullet for me. So understandably I was a bit dubious as to its reliability. In actuality, it works very well even on the free tier.andnbsp; I found the wizard excellent for quickly integrating various services, most apps are alreadyandnbsp;in the libraryandnbsp;ready for use and the ones which are not can be automated using Zapier's ability to send and receive email from third party apps which do not have API's available.

    We use this specifically to integrate, Wrike, Jira, Insightly, Slack and Freshdesk. So far its been a good experience and is in production as we speak. I found the speed at which events are picked up satisfactory and have had zero problems with downtime. A lot of the time when you are looking to integrate various API's there is a lot of fiddly configs and shoehorning that goes on and constant support to do internally, Zapier has allowed us to leave all of that with them and free up the internal resource.andnbsp;

    When I first proposed Zapier as a solution within my organisation we just wanted to get Jira and FreshDesk to talk to one another. Very quickly other departments noticed what we were achieving and wanted in on it. So very quickly HR, IT and the Software production team were all using it in anger.

    I think the biggest thing for me personally is the minimum amount of Infrastructure support needed. Before using Zapier, my team would on a daily basis be tweaking andxing problems with the API communication mechanism. We no longer have that challenge, with four or five well though out Zapier hooks we have massively streamlined our internal communications and brought a much better degree of visibility between departments. I believe it's a great solution and it's done wonders for us as a business.

    Pros :

    • Really easy config.
    • The app library is great and well populated, and being able to integrate services via email or API is great.
    • Very stable and well priced.

    Cons :

    • Not much to say here, we have not found anything that does not integrate well so far.

    We are a huge fan of Zapier. Zapier helps you integrate two applications without custom programming costs. It is flexible and easy to modify once implemented. We use it mostly for marketing automation between two applications (Example: Unbounce to Twilio) and creating webhooks between two systems. The amount of time and money Zapier saves you is countless:

    Pros :

    • The monthly fee we currently pay is well worth it.
    • We've saved hundreds, perhaps thousands, of dollars in programming costs.
    • There is literally no limit to what business problem Zapier can solve.
    • Marketing automation made easy between various platforms, generating new leads in Zoho CRM from calls in Callrail, etc.

    Cons :

    • Can't think of a single con to Zapier.
    • It is priced right, easy to use and the staff is very helpful. We needed a Zap modified to fit a certain business process and they were able to do it in days.

    With so many different applications and platforms popping up for different industries and job functions online, there is a growing need for easy integrations between them without major application collaboration or internal development. Zapier is the answer to this problem, and it's by far one of the coolest platforms created online right now. With a massive and ever-growing list of platforms and applications Zapier helps to connect and an even larger list of ways to connect them, this is a dream come true for anyone trying to connect the efforts of one business application with another area in an inexpensive manner.

    Pros :

    • Zapier is relatively inexpensive for anyone looking to connect the actions of a few applications here, so it's a great alternative financially to establish an API working with a developer or to request that your favorite applications/platforms work together to create a custom integration.
    • The library of applications that Zapier has "zaps" for is extensive and the list of different pieces of data and content that can be shared through those zaps is even bigger, meaning that you can find almost anything you're looking for when it comes to connecting applications.
    • The support is also pretty good, and they are also collecting suggestions from users on different zaps that should be made to ensure that you get the connections you need in the future.

    Cons :

    • Depending on what applications/platforms you are using online, Zapier may not have an integration set up yet or may have a small list of zaps between the applications you want.
    • This can be frustrating for people who may be in a niche market or are using relatively new platforms.
    • The pricing structure and plans can be a little confusing when trying to figure out zaps from tasks and how much you will be paying on a regular basis.

    With all of the web services that get used to manage productivity, there comes a time when you need to share data between services. This is where automation tools like Zapier come in. Much like IFTTT, Zapier allows you to set up connections between your web applications that will automatically transfer data between them by leveraging web APIs to do the task. So how does Zapier hold up to the challenge? Zapier operates on the concept of “zaps.” A Zap is basically a trigger that pulls the data from one service and then performs a task based on it. It could be as simple as change a mood or something as complicated as importing a file into Dropbox from Google apps. As long as Zapier integrates with the service, you can get the job done. Zapier has an impressive amount of services that it currently integrates with — more than 100. That number is, of course, growing and will get larger over time, but it is currently on par with other services like IFTTT. Software licensing is handled by the number of zaps you wish to create. The service gives you five free ones, and if you stay under that number, you are not charged. As your number of zaps increases, so does the price point. Increasing the number of zaps also increases the frequency that the actions will happen. On the free plan, services are only checked once every 5 hours, but with higher tier plans, that number can be as low as five minutes.

    Pros :

    • Integration with an impressive amount of services.
    • Free trial for under five zaps.
    • Easy to use interface.
    • It makes great software solutions even better!

    Cons :

    • Increasing frequency increases cost.
    • No shared zaps between users and other applications offer.
    • Similar services for lower cost or even free.

    Zapier is a nifty app that allows web-based applications to talk to each other. When I worked at a large software company, getting systems to talk to each other was a pain both for customers and inside the company. It meant data was 'siloed', isolated, lonely and incompatible with other data. For example, data from our CRM system wasn't able to connect with our sales system, so our CRM system didn't automatically know when leads turned into sales and how much, and therefore management couldn't get a precise assessment of sales people's effectiveness and ROI. Sales people thus used this somewhat to their advantage, exclaiming we lived in a fantasy world of fuzzy numbers. With a large quota, salespeople welcomed this gray area and used it to their advantage. So how does this play into Zapier? It means connecting the dots, automatically. It means automating more processes, to free up time. In the prior example, sure someone could have manually recorded sales in the CRM system and management thought of hiring cheap overseas labor to do this, but cheap adds up over 100 sales people pushing through $140 million in leads per month and for a software company, it's laughable to have to augment a system with manual labor instead of through software. At times, I've struggled to think how I could use a system like Zapier, but they provide over 500 apps and have many example integrations on their Recommendations tab. One great way is to automate your lead funnel to move leads from one system to another to keep tabs on them, or your cash flow, from one system to another. It's pretty easy to create a Zap. You just select the "from" Trigger Zap app, the trigger action, then the "to" app and action. It makes sure you have your accounts connected to be able to access them and read and write data, and then it's all set up. There's a free trial with up to 5 zaps, perfect for getting started. Then if you become a power user and want to use more, it's just $20/m for 20 Zaps. These Zaps run every 15 minutes, so it's great to know you have "little workers" working for you to automate your life and make your life easier. I highly recommend exploring and trying our Zapier to see if there're any processes you can automate to improve your personal or business life.

    Pros :

    • Free
    • Over 500 apps to integrate with
    • Fair and affordable pricing
    • Easy to set up

    Cons :

    • Cheaper alternatives exist (IFTTT)

    This program has way more functionality than I'll ever use an integrates with programs I've never even heard of!

    Pros : Integrates with tons of great apps/programs that I and many of my colleagues and clients use. It works with social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but it also integrates with PayPal and Freshbooks. My own use of zapier is quite limited, but I do pay for the premium version to have more zaps available than the free version. Setting up a zap is simple. You just pick a program and follow the instructions. I use it mainly to send automated emails to a roster of bloggers who write for my client on a regular basis. It's hooked up to my Google calendar and my Gmail and sends the reminders out one week before they are scheduled to publish. I also use this to send an email reminder to clients for specific types of content that I need on a regular basis, and to an accountant who pays the bloggers when their posts are published. It can be used to send automated messages to Twitter, but I don't use that function. It would be great for tracking Twitter #Hashtag mentions for a contest, but depending on the popularity of your contest, could use up all of your monthly task limit. You may need a bigger account for that.

    Cons : I tried to set up some Zaps for a Freshbooks and PayPal integration, but it didn't work. I think, in the end, it was required to have a premium PayPal account to accomplish this, and I didn't feel I needed that. Active zaps on the free and Basic plan only run every 15 minutes. You have to upgrade another level to get your zaps to run every 5 minutes. The list of potential integrations is really overwhelming and you'll likely spend a lot of time checking out some of these other programs!!
