Likelihood to Recommend
We recommend Skyvia to our clients who need a simple, straightforward method to transfer data between databases reliably, securely, and affordably. This is not an ETL tool of yore that requires specialized knowledge in whatever langauge the tool prefers. That simplifies the experience dramatically for organizations who have outsourced or less experienced technical staff. I have not tried Skyvia in a large and highly complex in-house scenario where having the transformations occur more heavily in the tool rather than in the source or destination data solution is desirable. I have not seen any speed or performance issues that would give me pause, even at relatively high volume, even when compared to other similar tools. However I am not yet persuaded that its transformation tools are as robust as in other solutions

Workato is brilliant to make separate applications work together without much effort or specialists being needed. When specific events on software A should trigger actions on B (or more) and you want that to happen without any development or big budgets, that's where Workato comes into play. It's a great help if you want tasks automated, communications flowing and data synced between different applications.
Read full review Pros Skyvia is good at scheduled bidirectional data integration to/from multiple sources The mapping is done automatically which saves a lot of time I like that all connectors are included in the price, so I don't have to pay for using some new ones additionally Read full review The Workato product interface is brilliantly thought through and designed. The learning curve for first timers is easy enough to get started and build useful things, and Workato really shines in their ability to handle complex triggers and interactions. Workato allows people to build software apps so much faster than by coding each functionality. Workato has fantastic documentation, making things accessible without any holes in the product. The product just works, never has any bugs, never lags, and just generally allows us to see and change exactly what we need to. Workato has an absolutely amazing support team. We tried the free version for a while, then realized it was the single most important software tool we have, and we upgraded. The support at the paid tier is A+, seriously the best from any company we've worked with. Feels more like a good friend then a support rep. Read full review Cons We wish the synchronization process could be a little bit faster - sometimes it takes quite a long time. Support team notified us that it is caused by API limitation, but nonetheless. Read full review Customer support - responsive, but often not equipped to help efficiently identify root cause of issue. Need to improve escalation to technical resources and turnaround time Recipe organization and sharing. Can be challenging to copy recipes, or grab recipes from publicly available site. There are often dependencies and errors that have vague descriptions. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We need to develop Enterprise Application Integrations and Workato was not designed for this
Read full review Usability
Due to prebuilt recipes, Workato is easy to learn and use for non-technical users if their use case fits the existing recipes. It is not easy for non-technical users to create, modify, debug or maintain complex integrations that are outside the prebuilt recipes.

They employ an extremely knowledgeable team of problem solvers. I've never had a disappointing interaction or one that has left me still searching for answers. I know that when I ask for help, they'll partner with me until we find a solution together

We discovered that we could not use Workato for our more complex, large enterprise integrations. It was useful for simple workflows that matched the prebuilt recipes.

Skyvia is more cost effective and easy to set up for simple data transfers. It is also substantially faster and easier to set up on high volume data sets requiring incremental syncs. Because our use cases focus on supporting a range of clients who do not have the in-house expertise or an existing tool to do this work, we have found Skyvia easier to implement, train on, and maintain than a more extensive and robust tool like

We already used
, but since it doesn't support NetSuite we had to choose another automation platform. Now that we've been using Workato for a few months, we have plans to move the stuff we're going through
to Workato. We set up a trial account with all the other platforms, and they were all more expensive and A LOT more complicated than Workato.
Read full review Return on Investment Skyvia is a willing horse - you set - it runs. I'm pretty impressed by the amount of time and effort it has already saved me. Read full review As business consultants, Workato has greatly improved our offerings to our clients as well as improved the time frame to implement automated workflows and integrations. For our clients, the return on investment is almost immediate. Once a Workato recipe is up and running (which can be done very fast), data is integrating, duplicate data entry and user errors are eliminated, and cross-company KPI metrics are easier to report than ever.
