Product Details

What is HubSpot Operations Hub (PieSync)?

Whether for a RevOps team or for running Ops for a single department, Operations Hub provides a a unified toolset that connects apps, cleans and curates customer data, and automates business processes under one central CRM platform. This is to drive an efficient, aligned, and adaptable business that delivers a friction-free customer experience.

HubSpot Operations Hub, an evolution of the former PieSync acquired by HubSpot in November 2019, works in the background and syncs a company's contacts two-way and in real time between cloud apps, so that each app has access to the most up to date customer information.

The vendor promises:

1. 3 Minute Setup: Users can take a free trial (no credit card required) by selecting the apps they want to connect, setting up the connection, then hitting “Start syncing”.

2. Ability to customize: Users can change the sync direction, create filters to manage subsets of contacts, sync deletions or unsubscribes, and select one of the apps to be the central database. Syncs can also be paused at any time.

3. Reporting: This is a "Set it and forget it" tool. The tool offers a dashboard to show how many contacts HubSpot Operations Hub has added or updated.

We use PieSync to stitch our many marketing and sales tools together, and it works SEAMLESSLY. Our CRM is synced to marketing automation, which is synced to LiveChat. It reconciles contacts between all our tools. We also like that it is a real-time sync, not a one-time info sync.
  • Contact syncing
  • Real-time syncing
  • Integrating sales and marketing
  • Contact backup
  • Segmentation (via rules-based syncing)
  • Syncing deal fields with CRMs
  • Syncing leads from chat tools like Intercom
  • Syncing based on other fields than email address (such as phone number)
PieSync connects several of my cloud apps that do not integrate at all or have weak integrations, like Pipedrive and Drip, Intercom, Front, and so forth. PieSync cannot yet sync Intercom Leads, though. That's being released soon!

  • It has helped us to get to deep segmentation
PieSync is a continuous, real-time sync. Zapier does a lot of single step automations. They're peers, but behave very differently.

Growth and strategy. PieSync plays an integral role in this area as we must have data centralized and updated in order to understand it well.

No developer knowledge needed. It is point and click and lightning fast to set up!

Integrations and the ability to live sync.
I wouldn't change anything. There wasn't much to evaluate. I simply plugged in my application API keys and mapped a few fields. It doesn't get any easier than that!
No
PieSync personally took app requests from me and delivered them within a few months. That was amazing!
I would give it a 10 if there was real time support, but PieSync is very responsive and generally responds within a couple of hours, which is fine for my purposes.

It is as easy as matching dropdown menu options side by side.

I use PieSync for two purposes in my own business. I have a CRM system which is my central data storage system (important with GDPR looming) but I use other systems for specific purposes. One is my iPhone which I use day to day for communications generally. The other is MailChimp, an email newsletter system with good connectivity with such things as sign up forms on websites or social media.

In the case of the iPhone, any record that I add to my Contacts is automatically added and tagged in my CRM and, the other way round, any record in my CRM that I tag for the purpose, is automatically added to my iPhone Contacts. That means that I have them even if I don't have a data signal at the time, so I can still call or text them if I have a phone signal.

In the case of MailChimp, any Contact that subscribes is added to my CRM; any Contact that unsubscribes is tagged in my CRM; and any Contact that is tagged by me in my CRM is automatically added to my MailChimp newsletter list.

In this way, my CRM keeps a handle on everything going on in my business to do with Contacts whether it was initiated on my iPhone or in MailChimp. That keeps me compliant with the main thrust of the General Data Protection Regulation.
  • It can perform 2-way synchronisation between databases so that changes in one are reflected in the other and vice versa. This differs from systems that rely on triggers which are 1-way actions and therefore are likely to get out of sync over time.
  • It can place tags into databases as it updates them so that an audit trail is created and tracking is enabled.
  • If businesses use data silos (Google Contacts for example) it is possible to pull them all together into a single database with no duplications.
  • The only area for improvement that I can think of is adding more systems to the list of supported applications. This is a one time exercise per application and new applications are being added all the time - but if you have an unsupported application it is annoying!
Many small businesses use free software which is quite understandable but it can create a data headache because there are not many free systems that allow sophisticated data management in a multi-user environment. That leads to huge inefficiencies in both time and data. A classic example might be the preparation of a mailshot (email or paper) which may need to come from multiple sources and will contain duplicates. It is so much easier if the data is automatically deduplicated in the background and is always as up to date as the last change, wherever that change originated. The cost of product like PieSync is nothing compared with the time wasted trying to perform these functions manually.
  • PieSync has saved me a lot of time. It is straightforward to learn and use and therefore the initial set up time is not great, but once set up you can more or less forget that it is there working away in the background.
  • My business is small and was already pretty streamlined with a CRM system etc. PieSync is likely to have a much greater ROI for a business that is less streamlined or is more complex to start with.
Zapier is a great product but it only does a 1-way sync. I was most impressed with the 2-way sync capabilities of PieSync and the way in which I could use that to help with compliance with the data regulations in place and coming soon to Europe such as the GDPR.

PieSync does things that no other product does and is very reasonably priced. I am always happy to pay for time-saving products.
  • Connecting to each system was almost unbelievably easy
  • The ability to select 1-way or 2-way sync
  • The ability to add tags or make selections based on tags contained within the data
  • Nothing is cumbersome provided that the system is supported
No
I used it with a couple of systems that I was not expecting to be smooth sailing and it just worked without any issues.
