Zapier is perfect for simple integrations and setting up generally low-volume accounts that require very little configuration and maintenance. For a distributed structure where a client/outside party is responsible for billing, it’s easy to create an account, put them on a low-cost plan, configure a simple integration and teach them how to alter the setup. Its webhook-based setup is perfect for many simple use cases and there’s no reason to use a more complex or expensive solution.
However, if you have integrations that are increasingly complex (involve parsing, multiple non-linear steps, the integration of non-native APIs), significant in overall volume/data or require additional features (time delays for API limits), Zapier likely isn’t your best choice. Other integration platforms offer higher levels of customization and capability, though they’re typically significantly more complex and expensive.
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 Ease of use - multiple people in the organization can set up and run Zaps per their specific use cases without much training. Connectivity - Zapier is able to connect to multiple applications we use on a regular basis. Functionality - Zapier provides embedded functionality within the app itself (email, data conversion), but also appropriate triggers and actions for apps it connects to. Versatile - Zapier can execute complicated and simple tasks and thus has many use cases. Read full review Cons Increased ability for asymmetric process window changes. Continue to integrate into new applications with the same quality. Add some automation options in the tree.

Zapier is now very much an integral part of our business and we could not operate without it!
Read full review Usability
Zapier is very user-friendly. They walk you through each step of the zap-building process in an orderly and easy to understand way. Each step of the zap is tested before moving onto the next step. For simple zaps, you can have them up and running within minutes. For more complicated zaps, it may take some experimentation, but Zapier is there to help you troubleshoot.

Before we purchased Zapier, I contacted support and asked them if Zapier could support my intended workflow (this is actually a selection on their support form - awesome). Within 2 hours, I was contacted by a support team member who seemed sure it would work, but granted me premium access for 2 weeks to try it out for myself. Sure enough, it did! Ever since then, support has replied rapidly to any problems I have experienced and answered my questions within a few sentences.

Compared to similar user-friendly data integration systems like
, Stitch, or Azure, Skyvia still wins in the number of connectors and pricing policy. Skyvia is a tool for companies like ours, starving for simple but, at the same time, robust and cost-effective data transfer solutions. It doesn't require additional knowledge for implementation and usage because it's no code. We'd recommend Skyvia as the best solution for non-technical staff.

Thanks to Skyvia, we are able to streamline the ETL process at a reasonable price, allowing us to dedicate our efforts to data analysis without the burden of ETL complexities. Read full review It saves us hours of time every week being able to connect services automatically. It enables automations to happen that would not otherwise be possible at all. It allows us to choose other software for specific purposes without the limitations of only the built-in connectivity. Read full review ScreenShots
