Overall Satisfaction with Zapier

Zapier is used to create integrations between Salesmate and Drip eliminating the need to double enter all the client data into our email lists. In addition we also have it setup to export certain lead info into a Google sheet for tracking & remarket lists. Though Leadpages & Drip have a native integration process you can also opt to setup with Zapier for multiple triggers.
  • Simple to learn & implement
  • Works with just about every app/platform you can think of
  • Attractive pricing model given the true value of this tool
  • Saves time, money, and increases efficiencies
  • Best part of Zapier is they're always working to improve features, integration availability, and speed of the processes, I can't think of anything that I would want to improve at this point.
  • Saves a lot of time for a small business owner trying to juggle sales, marketing, data analysis, etc... Simply put it kicks a** and has been a huge game changer
Microsoft Flow and Automate IO were both alternatives we looked into but fell short of our requirements. From a pricing and ease of use standpoint Automate IO definitely fit the bill but didn't integrate with Salesmate so that was a bust. As for Microsoft Flow it's also an excellent alternative and a very stable platform however it only offers a select amount of integrations ultimately pushing me to go with Zapier.
Zapier is a must have for small businesses looking to grow without the substantial cost of hiring additional admin staff. Although the initial setup is tedious in the long run it will not only speed up the sales process and save a significant amount of time, you'll wonder how you operated without it in the back end.

Evaluating Zapier and Competitors

Products Replaced

Key Differentiators

  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
When it comes to automating processes the single most important factor is application integration availability, little to no down time, and an IT dept that's always working to better the processes, integration availability, and process options.

Evaluation Lessons Learned

I'm one year in using this system and wouldn't change anything, in a sense I'm still evaluating and learning.
