Virtually everyone working in small to medium-sized businesses has an array of computer skills, yet eventually many employees reach a roadblock in their technological skill set. They know what they want to do, they just don't know how to get it done in a timely, easy manner.
Zapier was created to fill in just these types of gaps. Zapier is an online tool that helps non-technical people automate specific tasks or functions. In addition, it helps them create connections between services and apps they use to perform their everyday tasks. The great thing about Zapier is that no coding is required; anyone can build simple connections and automate the repetitive tasks they complete throughout their workday. Zapier is a snap to use and allows users to:
- automate, and
with over 700 different apps, with more options added every week. Apps are easily integrated with each other with just a few clicks. Information automatically passes between apps through the integration workflows. Processes are built quickly and easily, allowing employees to focus on more important tasks and get more done throughout their workday.
The tool allows users to create tasks with an "if this, then that" type of structure. For example, an employee can create a task such as "If I receive an email, then copy any attachments to Dropbox and send an alert to my Slack account". Once created, the automated tasks created by Zapier work seamlessly in the background. No longer do employees have to waste time performing the same functions over and over again. Data can either be pooled together, dissected or massaged in whatever way is required by a particular process.
