We’re deeply integrated with the Shopify API, Twilio, Slack and Gmail. We use Workato to manage purchase orders, stock inventory, track refunds, send invoices, issue refunds, and many more business applications that Workato makes very easy. Workato has allowed our product analytics team to run reports on various user engagement statistics, order volumes, and much more. Recipe Ops to manage error handling and monitor that all our recipes are fully functioning is a critical feature that makes Workato a step above any competitors, and the obvious choice for API integrations.,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.,Workato really doesn't have any draw backs I can think of. The only issues we’ve run into have been from lack of integration depth from the specific platform applications.,10,Workato is an unusual type of software in that it’s very much middle-wear, which means it’s extra important for stake holders in your company (especially those who won’t be interacting with Workato on a daily basis) to see the ROI that Workato can provide. Typically ROI is in developer time, as well as replacements for other SaaS tools. For our team, we move 2X as fast and need 1/2 the developers, so the ROI is just incredible.,Dell Boomi, Jitterbit and SnapLogic,Shopify Plus, Twilio Voice, Heroku,Yes,10,NoWorkato: Or how I saved my developers' timeAs part of the IT organization, we utilize Workato to help us integrate different business systems together without using our developer resources. Workato recipes have allowed our administrators and other technical staff to create and update automation between systems like Salesforce, Marketo, Google Suite, Slack. Workato has allowed us to deliver features to our users much faster than in a standard development cycle.,Workato's interface is easy and powerful, allowing for drag and drop and clone functionality which allows for easy experimentation when prototyping solutions. Workato's logging and testing mechanics are robust enough to allow us to quickly locate problems in our automation for additional testing. Their public recipe database is very robust, which has given us a good starting point on a number of projects, as well as giving us the option of sharing our creations back to the community. Workato support has been stellar.

This has allowed us to move forward with many projects faster than we would have without Workato (or similar tool).

Workato is great for small teams looking to move fast, going through quick product iteration and testing. However, it's also powerful enough to be a perfect tool for larger companies who want to build more stable products by minimizing the lines of code you need to develop and maintain.

I think it would be less appropriate if you don't have a need to integrate into other applications and are building something 100% in house. This is a rarely the case, but if it is I don't know if Workato makes sense.

Workato is a great tool for setting up automation between different cloud tools, like most CRM, marketing tools, finance systems, and chat applications. Used in this way, Workato can alleviate the stress of purchasing system-specific integration tools or dedicating developer resources to creating a solution.

  • Integrations with lots of different applications
  • Easy learning curve, doesn't take too long to pick up
  • Workato engineers work hard to understand your business processes
  • Not all integrations work as expected, sometimes requiring you to make custom integrations
  • If you have to work with the API of an application, it can be much harder to use without programming experience
  • Pricing is particularly steep
I would say that Workato can find its way into almost every sense of the business. The hard part is getting those non-technical stakeholders to understand automation and how you can integrate applications. Workato would not be appropriate if you do not have many cloud applications or the applications you have do not have APIs or webhook support.

We purchased Workato only a few months ago.

We targeted it for the integrations and automations for our business processes for sales and manufacturing, connecting between NetSuite, Salesforce and JIRA.

It is very straightforward to set up integration via Workato, so we ended up connecting more applications to it, including some in-house applications with REST APIs.
  • Recipes are powerful and yet simple and straightforward. They give all the programming concepts in a sleek user interface: conditions, loops, try/catch, refactoring.
  • Rich integrations. Workato supports many applications out of the box, and where it isn't, it is very simple to connect with HTTP REST APIs.
  • Logging. Workato has a long job retention, and you can see the input, output and timing of each step. VERY useful for debugging.
  • Centralized logging and search. It could be helpful to have all the job history across all recipes in one place, and to be able to search on it
So far we did not come across any integration/automation that we needed to implement and ended up doing on another platform.

The platform is very powerful and yet simple to use, an unless you have custom HTTP connectors, the only thing left for you to do is implement the logic.

I guess that if you have a very complex and long logic you'd think implementing the automation in a script and run it somewhere else. But since Workato connects to standard applications very well, it just beats the learning curve of figuring out how to connect to the APIs on your own.

Workato was implemented by our business to connect our online Quickbooks account and our online CRM database.
It is a great tool, if you are experienced with writing and building recipes. It can be confusing when trying to get it started.
I recommend paying Workato to build the recipes for you as it can be quite timely.
Once it is in play, it is a great tool to use.
  • Saves time by syncing data within two programs.
  • Easy to start and stop a recipe as needed
  • It would be nice to have a sync program which is user friendly.
  • Descriptions on how to use, and help sections would be great
  • Understanding of how the recipes are written can take some time
It is a great tool, just be prepared for trial and error within the recipes until you get what works for you. Each and every scenarios are different. They have premade recipes, but if you are looking for a reverse sync it will take time.
