Pros

PieSync made it incredibly easy to set up all the sync integrations, even for me being a non-technical person. I highly recommend this solution and am so happy we chose it.
I don't know if I've ever evangelized about a technology that I've cancelled before, but consider me a true believer. This is a superb company with a great product.
The two-way synchronization helps in reflecting the changes in one of the databases reflected in the other one. Custom field mapping is another robust feature which helps in improving investments.

Pros

I like this product for the first use case. It's pretty reliable with notifying our channels through slack, which is has been a big operational gain for our internal teams.
We've used to set up fun Slack integrations - appreciate the ease in which a non-developer can create a Zap for their needs.
The idea behind this tool is pretty great. Automations that can be achieved can be very useful once you can get them working after jumping through the loops.

Cons

Even though mostly it’s users error but it is hard to determine the error with current system available. It should have more software programs in it.
I had to make some mistakes and start all over a couple of times before I figured it out, but I suppose that will happen with anything.
Whenever there is a lack of functionality, it is usually the fault of the the app that is being connected.

Cons

Some times it doesn't work without any warning. You just find out after you notice the end problem.
Support is answered fairly quickly, but you never get replies from the same person, so it really frustrating having to repeat yourself. The biggest problem is it doesn't work.
Zapier is difficult to understand (the specific lingo it uses can be confusing and not everything is very self-explanatory). It also requires some knowledge of coding.

Fantastic Sync Plugin

Reviewed 4 years ago

Customer support is great! Easier to use than Zapier, and it actually SYNCS contacts, unlike Zapier. It can be a little pricey depending on what options you need, but IMHO, it is worth the extra $$.

Hi Brian, Thank you for your review, we're happy to hear you like our 2-way sync solution! Indeed, we don't position ourselves as a Zapier competitor, but a complementary product. While Zapier is great at performing triggered based actions (if-this-then-that), PieSync is used for having all your contacts in real time, 2-way sync (both creates new contacts AND syncs any updates of existing contacts). Happy Syncing, PieSync Team

PieSync

Not the same as Zapier

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

One might think that PieSync is just an alternative to Zapier. And while Zapier is an awesome service, this couldn't have been further from truth. PieSync let's you exactly sync data between two apps. Not just push new updates like in Zapier, but "move" a lot of old data to a different location/app.

Cons

Like any app of this sort, PieSync requires you to know a bit about the mechanics of the apps you're syncing and how their API work.

Much easier than Zapier, much quicker and seemingly much more efficient.

PieSync

Great Sales/Client Tool, Superior Solution to Zapier

Reviewed 4 years ago

I run a small catering company in VT and get about 200 inquiries a year. I need to know who is calling me so I don't sound like an idiot when I pick up the phone. PieSync allows me to have new inquiries automatically synced into my phone via our CRM (OnePage, though I would try others too). I can then sync back changes to clients, associating a phone number if they haven't given me one, or adding more details for next time

Pros

$5/month mostly meets our needs. Deletion syncs! Two-Way (Zapier doesn't do either of these) Ends bloated contact lists

Cons

$5/month plan doesn't allow multiple features.

Hi David, Thank you - it's great to read your use case of PieSync :)

The Better Zapier

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Ease of use, great dashboard, simple connections and tons of future integrations with different CRM systems, softwares, etc

Cons

The team has lots of integrations left to cross off their list to match up where Zapier is now. Hoping they get there

PieSync

It just works! Does exactly what it says on the tin!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Simplifies syncing data across multiple SaAS software we use online. Means we also don't have to waste Zaps from Zapier on just doing syncs and can save them for more complex tasks.

Pros

Straight forward interface for syncing all your data across multiple platforms. Clear instructions, clearly laid out and actually has clear error messages when you screw up.

Cons

More data sources would be great, but they keep adding them all the time. Sometimes it appears to pause and more feedback would be good on what it's doing.

PieSync

amazing 2 way sync of your contacts

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

i use this to sync activity from our crm to our email automation. they support a ton of different integrations. This is better than zapier or other 3rd party integration tools because the sync is bidirectional

Cons

PRICING - since they charge you per user synced it's really easy to start spiraling in license costs. for some reason, the assumption is that you have a lot of contacts to sync you are an enterprise customer? what, a small business owner can't have 30,000 contacts? i understand that this is an attempt to price by value, but it doesn't understand the use case.

Vendor response

Hi there, Thank you for this great review. Great to hear we have been able to help you out. If you have any questions about our pricing, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team. They would be happy to help you out. Thanks, Ewout

PieSync

Great for syncing data

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Unlike Zapier - which requires a trigger, PieSync syncs the data live. What this means is that if I update a phone number for a client my CRM I can have it automatically updated wherever I may need it.

Cons

I am impatiently waiting for a couple of integrations that I have voted for. Saying that, each quarter they have been releasing integrations with a handful of software choices.
